It can be overwhelming if you are not familiar with it. They explain that the short-term effects often seen from stretching must be supported by other qualities of athleticism. The next most common question people ask me in this discussion is, what about ankle weights, are those bad for gymnasts hips?. Let's learn about the most common gymnastics exercises and how they help gymnasts perform! Long-standing hip micro instability is another concern that may be created without the proper training approach. ), Ankle Rockers At Wall x10 reps with 10s hold at end, Hands and Knees Wall Rocking (for straight elbow movements) . Through their chapters, the researchers outline that flexibility training must be viewed in a broader context outside of only aiming to increase joint range of motion. Half the group performed static stretches, while the other half performed Hold Relax stretching, a variety of PNF. 1-13. There are very predictable locations of stretch discomfort that athletes may feel, and other areas that are warning signs of more serious injuries. Coaches understand that with more strength and technique training in a more structured environment they can progress quickly. It should be considered to be a skill with many pieces that must be broken down to achieve success. If gymnastics movements are performed properly, the It appears that a combination of mechanical factors (18, 25, 27-29), as well as neurological factors (18-21, 24, 25-26)), are reasons behind why regular stretching increases range of motion. The way someones hips or shoulders are shaped, unique rotations of bones, certain anatomical variations, or issues along the entire body chain, can all have a substantial impact on the amount of flexibility a gymnast can display during skills. That article can be found below, but before readers jump to creating only static stretching circuits based on those parameters, please read the rest of this chapter. Soft Tissue care, specific stretching, and eccentrics can help male gymnasts get where they need to be. Most gymnasts in general (and especially people with chronic ankle sprains) tend to hang out in this position at rest. They outline, as do many other great researchers, that correctly performed stretching bouts of 10- 30s that move to tolerable discomfort can be effective. Unfortunately, this leaves the gymnast feeling very defeated as if something is wrong with them, not to mention still struggling with skills and possibly at an elevated injury risk. 2014 Jan; 46(1): 131-14. This will help them continue to get the strength training effect but wont continue to perpetuate their overhead mobility issue. The main way people approach increasing the flexibility of the active structures is through regular stretching. North Am J Sports Phys Ther 1(1):1631, 2006. The research in the world of hip micro instability, labral tears, hip stress fractures, and other injuries commonly seen in gymnasts has been rapidly developing in the last decade. More research is needed, but this concept of natural boney adaptations in gymnasts is a central idea I feel will emerge in years to come. This can happen withhip flexing movements (think front leg high kick or leap) as the front of the femur bone makes contact with the front of the pelvis (impingement) and then the contact acts as a fulcrum for thefemoral head toslide out the back of the hip joint (instability). . 1) improve range of motion and 2015. Place your hands beside your hips on either side. But, the timiing protocols for these studies were insanely more than and human does, so its likely not the main case for increases in muscle length. For the most part, these structures cannot change too much unless surgery of some nature is performed, or through adaptation across many years as is seen when children grow or participate in overhead throwing sports from a young age. This allows for more inherent weight-bearing stability but may limit the natural mobility the hip can achieve. For that reason, I typically approach the warm-up is getting the body ready for the training session. Within all these studies, there were undoubtedly methodological issues that need to be considered. If the ligaments and joint capsules are already hypermobile, and have trouble dealing with high force, and then we add more laxity to them over time, we are likely asking for disaster regarding instability- based shoulder and hip injuries. The Mechanisms of Manual Therapy in the Treatment of Musculoskeletal Pain: A Comprehensive Model. This is commonly tested with something called a Beightons screening. This can be repeated with the hands in an under grip to bias the muscular soft tissue of lats/teres major, can be repeated with the hands on top of each other to mimic beam for female gymnasts, and can be repeated in eagle grip for those gymnasts who perform these skills. Research in the last decade has been very insightful to learn about certain ligaments and capsule areas that aid in preventing the ball of the shoulder from moving outside the joint and subluxing. As it also highlights, there may be changes in the tissue over time, as well as neurological changes, There are times after a hard training session or light training day where I will have gymnasts perform a whole body soft tissue session and follow it up with more passive stretching. This is opposed to possible sarcomeregensis that may be induced from heavy loading eccentric movements. 2016. My thoughts on hip mobility and why we choose certain exercises closely echo my thoughts on shoulder mobility, and I again will not go into much depth as this was covered in an earlier chapter. Again, these are just my thoughts. This will raise the body temperature, improve the movement skills which are the foundation upon which high level and cardiovascular system and increase respiratory rate. Many gymnasts may be limited by their bony alignment, differently shaped hips, or less mobile capsule/ ligaments. The majority of these articles theorize that the main reasons that stretching increases range of motion include. The average quality of studies included in this section of the review was slightly higher than the average qualities of the studies in the review overall. Due to this, they may not be biasing the proper muscular tissue intended and as a result may show limited effectiveness. Some naturally flexible gymnasts have a bony alignment where the hip socket is not as deep. I think this is especially true in those with natural hyperflexiblehip joints who are not fully developed andlack hip strength. The effects of myofascial release with foam rolling on performance. Without an in-depth knowledge of medical assessments, it is difficult to know why a gymnast may be limited in their split and what structure is referring discomfort during flexibility training. I feel this may not only foster more compensation, but it may create overload based injuries to muscles and tendons in conjunction with the principles above. From there I will take a deep dive into some cultural issues that exist in gymnastics, and then conclude with step by step flexibility examples for each main region of the body that gymnasts struggle with including the shoulders, hips, ankles, and wrists. The Layer Concept, Determining the Pain Generators, Pathology, and How Structure Determines Treatment. Speaking beyond the research, I truly feel that both mechanical and neurological changes occur in muscles as well as tendons with prolonged stretching. They found that to achieve this full straddle split position; there was evidence of micro subluxation in the hip joints. You can read more about hamstring apophysitis here (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6322373/) and shoulder impingement syndromes here (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3945046/). The Young Injured Gymnast: A Literature Review and Discussion. What is likely easy for that gymnast to do in a flexibility video online is because she has unique hips. Cipriani DJ, Terry ME, Haines M, et al. This is especially true when notallowing compensation from other body parts or excessive swinging for momentum. Ankles are one of the most frequentlyinjuredbody parts ingymnasticswith a variety of injuries from getting crunched on short landings, chronic impingement, sprains, stress fractures, and more. J Strength Cond Res. Even if you jumped around for bits and pieces, I hope you found them helpful. Epub 2016 Nov 14. Some of the gymnasts could be born more lax and likely have been successful in gymnastics because of it. This is unlike the hip joint, which due to having a deeper hip socket (remember hips are built for weight-bearing while shoulders are not) has more inherent stability with less mobility. Role of the Acetabular Labrum and the Iliofemoral Ligament in Hip Stability: An In Vitro Biplane Fluoroscopy Study. Man Therapy 2009. 90 Minutes of Must Hear Gymnastics Coaching Expert Advice, Master the Basics: Gymnastics Drills for Kips, Fly Aways, and Giants, Nick Ruddock Shares His Best Uneven Bar Methods for Giants, Flyaways, and Cast Handstands, Understanding and Treating Back Pain in Athletes, 5 In-Season Gymnastics Tips for Maximizing Meet & Routine Performance, Gymnastics requires significant amounts of flexibility and mobility, which makes it a primary area of training, It can be very confusing and easily overwhelming, especially with the rapid increase in scientific advances and the internet, Anyone working with gymnasts should have an understanding of basic anatomy and physiology before assigning flexibility drills, Although research is conflicting, there appear to be both neurological and mechanical reasons as to why regular flexibility training increases range of motion, Its crucial that proper methods are used to reduce joint stress and bias the stretching of soft tissue structures, especially in hypermobile athletes, Static stretching has a role to play in gymnastics but must be used correctly and at the right dosage. This is especially as recent research has shown that shoulder and hip injuries are one of the most common problems all gymnasts face. 2018. Also, aggressively pushing a gymnast down in a split or not taking the time to break down why someone is limited can also lead to serious injuries. They should not produce discomfort on the top of the shoulders, which is more indicative of rotator cuff or soft tissue impingement under the coracoacromial arch. Some studies have correlated a higher Beightons score with increased capsular laxity, including this research study linking a Beighton score over 4 to hip capsular laxity (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5400218/) and this study that discusses the links between shoulder capsular laxity and a high Beightons score (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4295707/). Often the specificity or individuality of specific exercises lacks as a result. 2014 Jul 1;7(3):202-211. eCollection 2014. In particular, the knee and elbow joints can be areas that if overly stretched, can become problematic. The most popular thought process is that we are affecting resting muscle tone, possibly increasing blood flow, perhaps changing the amount of water hydration level within the muscle or are offering a competitive neurological stimulus for muscle soreness. Given all of this, instead of doing twenty to thirty minutes of only stretching exercises, I now feel working in a complex type format is the most beneficial approach. As I mentioned above, research does support specific stretching and soft tissue work, but as one piece to a larger program. By using a variety of drills that include the basic movements (hip extension, shoulder flexion with rotation, etc.) I view the different goals fo flexibility in this light. They tell me they often times find temporary progress, but nothing seems to stick long term and actually show up in their skills. Chaundry H, et al. Although its not as common as the hip and shoulder post, I still have seen it quite a few times when in gyms. Hold this position without touching your legs for as long as you can. Int J Sports Med. I will cover those in-depth below. In Wilk KE, Reinold MM, Andrews JR., The Athletes Shoulder: 2nd Edition. When this acquired excess in joint laxity is paired with a lack of strength, lacking technical development, high repetition, and fatigue in not fully matured athletes, this may have a variety of negative consequences. As noted at the start of this article, gymnasts are typically our hyper in their joint capsules. Cranking on their ankles to get more toe point may help to make skills look better, but may be increasing their subsequent injury risk. Pictures 2 and 3 are showing a dynamic chest stretch over a foam roller where the shoulder blades are held down/ in while the arms slide on the floor from overhead to hip. 2010;90:438 449. Herbert RD1, de Noronha M. Stretching to prevent or reduce muscle soreness after exercise. Journ Sport Rehab, 2015, 24, 286 292, Nelson RT, Bandy WD. Gymnastics requires a significant amount of flexibility for skills to be done correctly and safely. Am J Sports Med 2011 39: 85S. Picture 3 is a lat stretch where the athlete sits Forcing a split down into extreme ranges of an oversplit without a proper assessment behind it, asking a gymnast to perform over splits when they are not even close to a split on flat ground, or blindly pushing someone down just to be tough, is most definitely dangerous. IJSPT. Trying to aggressively push through that bony or ligamentous limitation will only lead to pain and headaches for all involved. the increased range of motion could not be explained by the structural changes in the muscle-tendon unit and was likely due to increased stretch tolerance possibly due to adaptation in nociceptive nerve endings.. Kalichman L1, Ben David C2. 387 403. eccentrics, or skill training, is mainly what causes changes in the muscle tissue itself. We also do not want to cause excessive irritation of soft tissue through boney compression. The reality of the human body is that there are hundreds of factors related to anatomy that can influence a gymnasts level of flexibility. Shu B., Safran MR. Hip Instability: Anatomic and Clinical Considerations of Traumatic and Atraumatic Instability. These programs often do not have the same volume of upper back strength work such as feet elevated horizontal rows, renegade rows, band pull apart, or basic rotator cuff strengthening. Its my opinion that other aspects to physical preparation like strength or skill training, cause more structural changes to muscle tissue due to their higher force and volume nature. We take our privacy seriously and will never share your information. As far as specific flexibility circuits, those I feel are the best times to truly make positive increases in joint flexibility. Part of this may be inevitable for high-level gymnastics, but we should be doing anything we can to reduce risk given the scientific information and coaching expertise available. Being able to achieve a full over split, or even a regular full split for that matter requires many things to be going well from a movement point of view. Good or Bad? Please keep in mind that application of this material is a personal choice, and in no way is the author responsible for those choices. Hip Instability: Current Concepts and Treatment. Harvey L, Herbert R, Crosbie J. Those looking for more research related to ACL tear mechanisms can start by following this link here. A rolled ankle or inversion sprain is definitely among the most common for gymnasts. It does not look nearly as impressive of a motion, but it is very specific to the goal we are trying to achieve of affecting the active structures while minimizing excessive stress on the passive structures. A Review of the Literature Part 1: Neuromuscular and Anatomic Risk, Risk Factors for Anterior Cruciate Ligament InjuryA Review of the LiteraturePart 2: Hormonal, Genetic, Cognitive Function, Previous Injury, and Extrinsic Risk Factors, Anterior cruciate ligament injury prevention training in female athletes: a systematic review of injury reduction and results of athletic performance, The Best Gymnastics Leg Conditioning For Explosive Power on Vault and Floor, Exactly How to Build Explosive Power in Gymnasts Using a Hybrid Lifting Program with Scott Willgress, 5 Ways Gymnastics Coaches Build Healthy & High Performing Gym Cultures, Luke Carson on Gymnastics Culture Change, Handling Disappointment, and The Olympics/Worlds, 5 In Season Pitfalls for Gymnastics Coaches to Avoid, SHIFTs 200th Episode! Alongside this, there is a lot of confusion or misunderstandings about what happens when gymnasts stretch, why it helps increase range of motion, how much stretching is suggested as beneficial to improve flexibility, and how to make changes show up in skills. I have found that many of the traditional general stretches we use as go to methods for increasing flexibility do not have proper assessments preceding them or may not have anatomical considerations in mind. You can see a video of our entire warm up here. When an athlete reports hip or shoulder pain, far too many people are jumping to the conclusion and assuming that these reports of pain are just pulled muscles. Its my opinion that the sport of gymnastics has yet to use a systematic, individualized, science-based system to flexibility methods in training. Moving from here, I will start covering specific joints and ways to help. Background Anatomy and Understanding Hypermobility, Beightons Testing and Links to Capsular Laxity. Kinetic Anatomy. Many different thoughts and practices exist in daily gymnastics training. Understanding multidirectional instability of the shoulder. Optimal Management of Shoulder Impingement Syndrome. This second layer of joint capsule and ligaments helps provide more stability to the joint, with different portions of the capsule limiting certain ranges of motion. Many gymnasts with stiff hips could benefit from a bit less squatting and jumping, and repace those exercises with glute and hamstring work. Ogura Y, Miyahara Y, Naito H, Katamoto S, Aoki J. Philadelphia: Churchill Livingston. Like many people, I largely got my flexibility methods from lessons that my coaches passed down to me, the advice of other coaches at camps or clinics, and whatever I found on the internet through discussion forums. So, what are some solutions to maybe moving away from aggressive stretching/ankle weights but still developing beast like leaps/jumps? This is where the third layer of dynamic stabilizers and muscles comes into play. I think that by using correct stretching consistently over time (not into excessive pain or passive tissue damage) combined with strength in full range of motion. Labral tears may progress to requiring surgical repair and putting an athlete out of training for months or even career-ending. Amplitude - refers to the fullness of the movement with respect to flexibility stretch, and height Apparatus - one of the five pieces of hand-held equipment used in rhythmic gymnastics. Many people have heard about the muscles of the rotator cuff, biceps, triceps, lats, and so on. (3), For the geeks like me reading, they more specifically are subdivided into the Superior Glenohumeral Ligament, the Middle Glenohumeral Ligament, the Inferior Glenohumeral Ligament, and the Posterior Glenohumeral Ligament. If better flexibility, strength, and soft tissue care was used, I feel a lot of this could be avoided. Typically not a time to increase joint motion, as the body is usually in a very high-stress state and has just taken a lot of training volume, A naturally hypermobile type genetic structure, and shallower hip joints (acetabular dysplasia), Proper spinal control, alignment and awareness that does not stress the lower back or hip joints excessively, Adequate muscle length in the hip flexors, quads, hamstrings, and groin, Adequate muscle strength in the core, glutes, deep hip stabilizers, and rotator muscles to safely support the hip joint, Adequate full range control and strength for the central nervous system to allow leg motion to occur safely, Consistent training and regular use of newly acquired motion to transfer motion to skills in the long-term, Proper mental and psychological developmental/maturity of the athlete to actively be engaged in the training, know normal versus abnormal levels of discomfort and consistently work to seeing progress, Skendzel, et al. In this setting, we are looking to ramp down the body and assist in recovery (known as facilitating parasympathetic tone). Tissues most commonly targeted are the latissimus dorsi, teres major, and pec muscles. The active structures are more what people know about from gymnastics flexibility methods: muscles, tendons that attach muscles to bones, and the nervous system. In this situation, if the gymnast can not access their full range of motion against gravity alone,I see no justification for adding additional ankle weight resistance and allowing swinging momentum to reach the desired end range of motion. Before kicking this off, please keep in mind that I wrote an entire book chapter on gymnastics flexibility, which you can download and find for free here. The bones themselves, and the shape/fit of these bones is often referred to as the first layer of the shoulder joint. The researchers proposed that the change in the range of motion may have primarily come from increased tolerance to the discomfort of nerve fibers that detect stretch pain, as the fibers were becoming more desensitized. I have seen what was thought to be sore shoulders turn into rotator cuff damage and shoulder instability, requiring surgery to correct. Gymnasts practice up to 30 hours a week and have regiments full of conditioning and exercises. For 12 Weeks, 2 days a week and 90 min. 132 146, Sands WA, McNeal J. Hipinstabilityrefers tothe hip moving into to those same endranges of motion without strength/control, causing the head of the femur to partially slide out of the hip socket. From all the science I have read, and conversations I have had with medical professionals on stretching or self-myofascial work, when correctly applied the positives effects of foam rolling on performance largely outweigh the negatives. Some degree of abnormal hip bone motion may be needed for success in aesthetic sports. This is why I now mainly approach flexibility in larger complexes. J Hip Preserv Surg (2015) 2 (2):123-135.doi: 10.1093/jhps/hnv017. They also are usually subject to 100s of squats, squat jumps, and leg tigthening exercises per week. This is where things start to get important. This end range compression and increase in capsular laxity over time may predispose shoulder instability, subacromial impingement of the rotator cuff or biceps tendon, and labral damage. Draovitch P, Edelstein J, Kelly BT. The anatomy and theory, as well as some of the joint based material for this blog are taken from that chapter. Thomas E., et al. These issues are commonly overlooked as culprits to why a gymnast struggles in this area of gymnastics. A very useful research review on this topic was performed by Weppler and Magnusson titled, Increasing Muscle Extensibility: A Matter of Increasing Length or Modifying Sensation? (18). While puberty can make a big negative impact on flexibility, I feel that the cultural norm of gymnasts just automatically getting tighter as they age is overexaggerated. Frequently the complex research available suggests some minor changes during training. To really see if it is true I would need a dynamic MRI machine, a super slow motion high def camera, and someone way more technologically savvy than me (anyone want to put in donations?). However, the rationale for this is in a different context. In another, the gymnast may naturally have lots of hip and toe rotation in but not have any moving toes out. A full movement evaluation and something known as a Craigs test is the best way to practically assess if a gymnast may fall into one of these categories. Given that gymnasts already straighten their knees andtend to show very knee dominant landings (versus proper hip dominant squat deceleration landings), we really dont want to putting them more at risk for landing lock legged and having something going seriously wrong. Its my opinion that using ankle weights under high speed (like in leaps, jumps, leg kicks, running, gymnastics skills/drills) willbe very challenging for gymnasts to control due to the long weighted lever arm. If these joints are subject to ongoing stretching past their normal end ranges of motion, it can significantly increase the risk of injury. I hope that this guide can be a place for everyone in gymnastics to find some useful information without feeling so frustrated and overwhelmed. I do not mean to imply that every report of pain should be panicked over, and that simple muscular strains are not a common occurrence. It uses either a floor bar or the other arm version to bias external rotation of the shoulder. Also, think how they apply to the gymnasts skill profile. The Approach to the Evaluation and Surgical Treatment of Mechanical Hip Pain in the Young Patient. There is also a very fine line between stretching the correct active structure to see improvement and overly stressing the incorrect passive structure to cause injury. Cur Rev Musculoskelet Med. I more hope to highlight that assuming ongoing pain reports are no big deal and can be trained through, rather than thinking critically about the situation, can be very problematic. These two things often happen together in very flexible gymnasts, theoretically as the contact of the femur on the pelvis creates a fulcrum type point for the head of the femur to lever against contributing instability. Get in the low lunge position with the knee of the leg at the back touching the floor. This is usually why they were noticed as a good candidate for competitive gymnastics, as they naturally had full splits and bridges. Given the material I have read, this has been my main thought process as well. They tend to be more biased towards strength or power and less towards inherent flexibility. Moving past all this background information, its time to talk about what actually causes a gymnasts arms not to go overhead in a handstand, a gymnasts legs to not go into a full split, or a gymnasts arms to not go behind their body for pommel horse swings. I also have taken some of the most effective and popular flexibility circuits Ive made for male and female gymnasts and put them into a quick PDF to use in the gym. 2015 Jul;7(4):34658. The capsule resembles a balloon-type structure that completely surrounds the shoulder joint and serves as a thickened blending of ligaments. Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /nfs/c05/h01/mnt/75057/domains/accelprotech.com/html/wp-content/themes/Divi/functions.php on line 5752 Each comprehensive PDF is a step by step guide of the exact passive and active flexibility, strength, balance, and gymnastics specific PreHab exercises used by Dr. Dave Tilley with 1000s of gymnasts across the world. Other methods of stretching like active flexibility, and PNF stretching, are certainly effective for increasing range of motion. Duration of static stretching influences muscle force production in hamstring muscles. J Bone Joint Surg Am, 2013 Sep 18; 95 (18): e133, Dumount GD. In all cases except two, (Janot et al., 2013; Peacock et al., 2014) there were no changes in performance measures following any of the SMFR protocols used. A systematic review. These children are often detected through an early talent identification and are quickly put into competitive team tracks. Although research is conflicting, self soft tissue care as is seen with foam rolling and other tools may have a role in reducing perceived soreness and increasing blood flow to muscles. Using proper movement assessments, understanding the anatomy, and a consistency over intensity mindset is what will reduce injury risk and increase gymnastics performance. Huang R, Diaz C, Parvizi J.
