Am i too old to start gymnastics?


Im 23, never had a day of training in my life but its something that is really interesting to me. Ive always been really in to fitness; running, weightlifting, etc. And when i get into something, i like to train hard. i have alot of dedication and discipline. Also im pretty big, 5'10 200lbs-all muscle though, very low bodyfat %. I know the heavy you are the harder some of those things will be and just because i have alot of muscle doesnt mean i have that kind of strength.

I started gymnastics pretty late, too, granted I wasn't as old as you are, but still, most people start gymnastics when they're like 5. I would definitely say go for it, though. If its something you love and are willing to work hard at, who cares about your age. Just be aware that you will probably have to start out with gymnasts a lot longer than you, but if you're as strong and determineed as you say, you'll probably progress fairly quickly. Besides, if you end up hating it, you can always quit, but if you never try you'll never know.

I don't think you are too old if it's something you really want to do. You'll never know until you try.

GO FOR IT!

Has anyone seen the hopatcong wildcat cheerleading team?

no because there is no age limit to start gymnastics. plus, they will teach you to do all those "hard" things with lots of practice. and if you are really willing to push yourself to do something you want to do, go for it!

If you just want to pursue it as a hobby, then go ahead. Understand this, though: Your a little big and that's going to hinder you because it's gravity you're fighting. Also, most of the gymnastics guys are doing at 23 took years to build up their strength and flexibility. You'd basically be trailing behind 13 and 14 year olds for a while...so you have to weigh the embarrasment factor as well.

What's the difference between a cartwheel and a roundoff?

it's very easy to get hurt in gymnastics, and therefore, you are jeopardizing your health. especially the older you get, the harder it is to do things when you were a teenager. but if you are willing to take this risk, go 4 it!

Why even bother separating Females & Males in bowling...is it like driving males and females are equal?

Because your tall and very muscular, you don't have a natural gymnasts body. However, you sound like your really strong, and that will help out alot. Skills are going to come very easy to you most likely, you just wont have the precision and finesse for awhile. Also, your the exact age of most male Olympic gymnasts out there, if not younger!

Here is a list of skills. If you can do any of them, your probably going to do well in gymnastics:

Back handspring
Back Tuck
Press to handstand
Flares
roundoff
splits

Any sort of break dancing skills would help alot too. Break dancing is basically alot of gymnastics I.E. handstands, flares, back tucks, etc.
