Gymnastics Training

Last night I went to a gymnastics facility in my area. I thought it would be a good way to work out some muscles I can't normally hit in the weight room, and I thought right! I tried out the hanging rings, parallel bars, spring boarding onto uneven bars, pommel horse, and rope climb. That stuff is so much harder than it looks! I pretty much just did an exercise, climbed the rope, did a different exercise, climbed the rope, x10. Ended up climbing the 20ft rope 10 times, and did multiple takes on the other events. All in about 30 minutes. My hands, forearms, and shoulders are still extremely sore. I'll probably work out at that place a lot more over the next few months. I've been researching online, and the whole gymnastics approach to fitness is very new to me. But I think it is exciting, and definitely something that will help the Ninja Warrior training progression.
