One of the questions ask our athletes the most, whether in stunting or tumbling is, “Are You Breathing?”
Most of the time, the answer is no. You can see they are forcing the skill and they aren’t having much success!
Proper breathing calms the nerves and helps you to create the proper core stability required in stunting and tumbling. Proper breathing is also super important in tumbling—making sure you are able to attain and maintain proper body shape throughout. In stunting, athletes often hold their breath when they are holding a stunt overhead. You gotta breathe so you don’t pass out!
Take a deep breath, stay calm, and CRUSH those skills!
