The push-off pad


In this new video on essential teaching equipment for gymnastics, we'll be looking at the vault push-off pad.

This piece of equipment is the number one tool on vault for helping learn acrobatic movements for the second flight, whether forward or backward.

Its rounded form and explosive quality are its two most interesting characteristics. But, above all, think of it as a trampoline for the hands! Its characteristics make for a true catalyst for the progress of your 10-13 year-old gymnasts.

Find out in this video why it's so essential for training.

A note on the series of books, "Let's teach gymnastics":
• Our books are essential companions to the video training on the same topics that you find in the section "Gymnastics Education" here on GymneoTV.
• Their spiral binding and tabbed pages allow you to quickly find the skills you want to look at, and easily locate the drills and training stations.
• The summaries of technique and the large format illustrations made to scale make these books the ideal companions to your training sessions.

Our advice:
• For training session prep: thanks to the technique summary and icons at the top of each page, you can easily find the stations that match the current needs of your gymnasts. You can also anticipate the equipment needs for your upcoming session.
• During training:  with the help of realistic images, you can save time by showing your gymnasts the drills to work on. They will also be able to help you set up the training stations and thanks to the illustrations, they'll more easily understand the task at hand.
• You will improve the constant exchange that you have with your athletes. In fact, when giving your instructions, the illustrations create common ground for discussions or reference points. They make it easy to understand and/or visualize technical placements, which makes it much easier to learn the element.
