Renowned as a breathtaking sport, trampoline gymnastics are taken up by the modern-day trampolinists to reach heights nearing 10m, which is almost 33ft. Sometimes, they even go far as to touch the ceiling. A sport in its own rights, trampoline gymnastics is a majorly acknowledged training tool for most gymnastic disciplines and diving sports.
Having a Berg Champion trampoline installed in your backyard and practising on it will even give you a feeling of a gymnast as soon as you start.
Now, trampolining gymnastics has been newly added to the Olympics schedule. Its debut has been in 2000 at the Sydney Games, regardless of the training aspects it introduced to the other sports. Seven judges analyze the competition, two of them evaluate the routine difficulty, while the other five judges judge the execution. The scoreboard is within the 0 to 10 range. The trampoline consists of a nylon cloth strung with 120 pins surrounded by a thick mat at each end for cushioning the impact if anyone commits a misjudgement.
So, What Are The Trampoline Gymnastics Moves You Should Begin With
Two routines are laid down for performing; the first is a compulsory routine comprising 10 elements and the second is an optional freestyle–like routine having no limits for demonstrating 10 different skills. The gymnasts aim to stay within the 2m x 1m target area on the trampoline.
Trampolining has its own language and the major moves are named after its inventors. The common trampolining moves you can practice on Berg Champion Trampolines include –
