Cool Gym Tricks

Whenever I’m jetlagged I usually find myself watching a lot of youtube videos.

Well last night I found a pretty sweet gymnastics video full of original skills (caution: the music is kinda weird so maybe mute it).

Some of the skills are long gone from the code like doing circles in a straddle position (not flaired) or doing flips before blocking off the vaulting horse.  I think that roll-out skills are banned for girls also.

Anyway check it out:

    Those straddled russians were none other than Phil Cahoy (you may know him as Dr. Cahoy that works with out national team). Of course, you had to notice Jeff Bender and his “mindBender” mount on HB!!!
