Advanced Kids Gymnastics and Tumbling : How to Do Mushrooms for the Pommel Horse in Kids Gymnastics


Hi! My name is Matt. On behalf of expertvillage.com,
we’re going to show you some clips of mushroom. The mushroom is used in combination with the
pommel horse to learn circles. So when you start on the mushroom, both hands equally.
It doesn’t matter whether you travel that way or that way. The idea is to shift your
weight from one hand to the other as you go around. Your hands don’t lift this high.
They only go as high as they have to to clear your legs. You keep your center of gravity
over the x as you go around. So I start off to one side and circle. On the pommel horse,
I explained that you don’t want to be all turtle shelled in your shoulders. You want
to push, extend, lift your head and chin out of your shoulders. Keep pressing as you do
the circles or as do the front of back support or scissors on the pommel horse. Any of those
things you’re always pushing down, never sinking into your shoulders.

  1. You really wanna be good at mushroom, start doing half circles on floor. Then 3/4 circles. Then 1 1/4 circles. Then once you can do that, move it to the mushroom.
    Your shape will be better and you will get stronger from doing it on the floor. You will also learn to lift your feet . . . cos carpet burnt toes hurt.
