Gymnastics Season is Upon Us

Tuli's Cheetah Gen2

As you know, gymnastics season is coming quick. There are only a few months left before compulsory season begins, and the optional season immediately follows. As gymnasts, our bodies endure a lot of pounding and stress considering there is no such thing as an “off season”. It is a year-round sport, where the practices and long days never really stop. We may get a few days off here and there, or even a week off if we are lucky, but for the most part we are go, go, go! The typical slogan we all have to tell our friends is “I can’t, I have gymnastics!”

 

Stress on the Body

With that being said, competition season is grueling on the body! There are more reps and numbers of full out routines that are expected of us each day. The landings aren’t so soft anymore, and when we go to competitions the mats are typically brand new and unforgiving. This then puts more stress on the lower half of the body than we are used to. Due to the fact the season lasts for 4-5 months, it is important to care for our bodies in the best way possible.

Listen to when your body is aching or hurting because there is a solution to the pain. The easiest way to prevent pain is to do all of the things to reduce the risk of injury and pain ahead of time. With season just around the corner, figure out what that is for you.

 

Solution:

Medi-Dyne offers many products I have found effective for me in my gymnastics career. The Cheetah Gen2 Heel Cup is one I depended on. It was the only product that made the landings feel softer, as well as providing me with the support I needed to bear the impact each and every day.

By combining shock absorbing technology of form-fitting heel cups with the reinforcement of a durable, lightweight neoprene ankle support, this product is not only comfortable but also durable. These supports will stand up to whatever pounding your routine can dish out.
