    Apparatus Finals

    Two days of artistic gymnastics apparatus finals saw ten more medals decided as the commonwealth’s best gymnasts battled it out.

     

    MAG Floor

    Gymnastic Planet-supported gymnast and England hopeful Giarnni Regini-Moran qualified in top spot for the men’s floor final, but an uncharacteristic tumbling error saw him downgrade a straight 1 ½ twist to a simple tuck front and win bronze with 13.966. It was Jake Jarman who smashed the field to win the title with a score of 14.666 and Canada’s Felix Dolce won silver with 14.166.

    STOP RIPPING YOUR BLISTERS WHEN YOU ARE GRIPPING WITH WOD & DONE

    It wasn’t long after Eva began the sport of gymnastics that we were told to expect blisters. It’s just supposed to come with the territory. But why? Do blisters somehow prove your level of grit? Are they to be shown off on the gym floor like a badge of honour? If my gymnast blisters more than your gymnast does that mean she’s working harder? Blisters are painful! Wod & Done

  8. How to choose correct size Metal Bar loops

    HOW TO CHOOSE CORRECT SIZE METAL BAR LOOPS

     

    We are often asked questions about the sizing of our metal bar loops. Unfortunately, there is no straight forward answer to these questions, as the correct sizing of metal bar loops depends on numerous factors:

    • Circumference of the athlete’s wrist
    • The amount of padding used under the loops (gloves, wrist bands or perhaps both)
    • If using at home – diameter of bar (as home bars are often produced in various diameters by different manufacturers)

    It is crucial to choose the correct size of metal bar loops. Too big or too small loops can lead to serious injury, including broken bones.

  9. Gymnastic Planet Handguard sizing

    GYMNASTIC PLANET HANDGUARD SIZING

     

    Many of our customers often request a help choosing correct size of handguards. Sizing charts of handguards are published on our web site. Please note: each style of handguards has their own sizing chart so please only follow sizing chart of the product you are planning to purchase.

    These measurements have been provided as an approximate guide. They in no way guarantee a safe or perfect fit. Only the gymnast and his/her coach can decide on the appropriate size by evaluating the actual handguard once it is on the gymnast's hand. There are dimensions to the hand that cannot be taken into account with a flat measurement and there are several positions on the wrist where the gymnast might decide to settle the wristband and handguard. Therefore, only the gymnast and his/her coach
