What would you like to do?
The Glide Kip... Ahhh... Such memories in learning this move. Its probably the hardest basic skill to get, and then one of the easiest after you get it. Trust me, bars is so much more fun once you get your kip.
First, Lay on the ground, in hollow position [[on your back, like you just finished a glide swing]], with your arms over your head. Quickly pull your feet to your hands, and sit up as you pull your hands down to your hips. This simulates what a glide kip should feel like.
After you do that a couple of times, go to the low bar. Stand in front of it and do a powerful swing. If you are tall, or have trouble with piked glide swings, do it in straddle. The more power you get out of you swing, the better (and easier) your kip will be. When you reach the end of your swing, quickly bring your toes to the bar. When your toes touch the bar, pull the bar down to your hips [sort of like pulling up your pants]... Once the bar is at your hips, KEEP PULLING on the bar. Rotate your hands to the top of the bar, and throw all your weight down to the floor below you. Don't try to look at the high bar, look down to the floor when you are trying to get to front support. Don't try to kick away from the bar, or arch to get up. It will only make the process of learning your kip much, much slower. Ask your coach to spot you through your kip so you can feel the timing of the move. This is mostly a timing move. Strength will help, but it won't do you much good if you don't have the right timing. It takes patient. You have to wait until your glide swing is FULLY stretched out before you try to kip.
Don't get discouraged!!
Some conditioning that will help with the strength you will need for your kip are:
~Hanging leg lifts. These will help with the strength needed to pull your legs to the bar, and hold the there during your kip.
~Lateral Pull Downs. These will help with the strength needed to complete the kip, and reach front support.

Kip is a bars skill, not a person. It is a level 5 skill in which you do a glide, bring your toes to the bar, and swing back up so your hips sit on the bar.
Kips is a term for 1000 Pounds or Kilo-Pounds. So instead of using the value of 21,000 Lbs, you could use 21Kips. Kips are the currency of Laos. Kips are the untanned hide of… a small animal. A kip in British slang is a rooming house or bed.
This is the technique i was taught aswell as a few tips and excercises you can perform at home or at the gymnasium. Firstly,a kip is a skill that is performed on the uneven ba…rs and needs goood strong tight stomach muscles and the right technique. This is the way i was explained how to do a kip: 1.Do a good strong glide and stretch out so your body is straight when you reach the peak of your glide.(n.e you may need to pratcise a couple of these before continuing on) 2.Once you have done that you need to bring your ankle or shins to the bar (try not to whack your shins on the bar as it hurts). 3.Then you quickly whip your feet up (or "pull your pants on" as it was explained ot me metorphorically) 4. If you have followed these instructions correctly you should end up in a strong front support position. Here is a simple exercise you can do without a set of bars: 1.Lay on the floor with your stomach muscles tight. 2. Bring your feet up to your nose and quickly snap your feet up, or AA i said before " pull you pants on". 3. From this you should end up un a sitting position. I hope this has helped you as i am a gymnast.
First, head to a beginner's class. You can book them by searching Google for '(insert name of your city here) gymnastics lessons' and clicking on the most reliable website…. You can find out everything for your first lesson by heading to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_happens_in_your_first_gymnastics_lesson?feedback=1 and reading the information I posted there. However, you can also teach yourself at home, with help from members of your family or friends if necessary. Go on YouTube and search 'how to do (insert gymnastics move) (insert 'at home' if the results for the search without this are for with resources you don't have access to)' and their are some helpful videos there that tell you what equipment you need that can be found around your house, garden or local area - like the park, etc. - and what to do, with examples. I find that sometimes it's not possible to be home-taught when you don't have the correct items needed, or the right area to practise in... If you don't have a big garden, don't want to try in the park and don't have a large, open space in your house with a soft carpet for falling on, and neither do your family or friends, then there isn't much you can do about it and will have to book an official lesson. Please do NOT take any risks in learning at home - ensure you are ALWAYS safe. However, if you cannot learn at home, with family/friends, and cannot take professional lessons, if you go to school or an all-sports athletic club, you may be able to convince your coach into taking a term teaching gymnastics. They may use their work budget to hire trainers to come to your school/club facilities, use a teacher gymnast to coach you or even have weekly trips to the local sport centre where they teach gymnastics. I'm sure most teachers will be eager to do so, as much as you are. It's worth a try. REFERENCE: I am a Level 5 gymnast, my class are learning gymnastics in PE, I am in a gymnast club where I get taught and I also home-train my friends.
A gymnast is someone who is very flexible and athletic. They get this from training in GYMNASTICS. Hope that helped
a gymnast is someone that is very athletic. gymnast is a person that takes gymnastics. -----ALAINA----- A person willing to …put themselves in danger to do crazy stunts. They do things people wouldn't dare to try and they do them with pointed toes and love every minutes of doing it
This is the way it was explained to me: First you do a glide and really stretch out Then you bring your feet or ankles to the bar Then you pull your legs up qui…ckly (or as it was explained to me,pull on your socks) If you do this quick and with enought power you should end up in a good front support position. You will probably need coach support as i can not explain it as good as a coach can face-to-face. I must admit that a kip is a hard skill to attempt and it needs to be performed with strong,tight stomach muscles. Yeah the way to get that strong tight stomach is to do plenty of leglifts sit ups or lay on the floor put your hand under your butt then lift just your feet 6 inches off the ground and hold it there for as long as you think i'd say a minute or two. You can also try getting on the high bar having your coach grab your feet push them half way up as if you were going to do a leg lift hold them there until you say let go when they let go you have to try to hold your feet there as long as you can it's ok if they get lower just as long as your not hanging there with you feet straight down ponted to the floor then this will help your belly muscles alot. This will help your kip come faster.
to do a kip you swing your legs so your shin touches the bar.then well your legs swing back pull your self up.
It is a cream or ointment. The label states for mild burns, sunburns, chaps, and cracks, etc. I have only seen it for sale in japan yet its labeled made in new jersey.
Answer 1 I am a gymnast for about two years, and one thing that gymnastics' can do for you is make you stronger, for one thing, and make you get more muscles and is …one excersize that will surely benefit you. If you want to be a tumbler, which is without bars/balancebeam, give it a try. but if your more of those gymnastics' girl like I am, then take a bigger step and start working on everything. Gymnastics' is expensive so just be ready to pay a lot and have a good scheduale. Tumbling is cheaper, but I prefer gymnastics. Hope this helps! Answer 2 ive been a gymnast for longer than i can imagine i started classes when i was two! i am now a level 5. gymnastics can help you maintain your balance, flexibility, strength, and courage. gymnastics helps maintain your courage because really if your a gymnast you cant be afraid of much because well.... most of you life is right in front of you and if you mess up and goof off well, that's your problem because you could get hurt really bad and just not be able to do anything, so hope this helps with your question thanks! http://youtu.be/F6FtUqzaZ1E

If you do not want to buy a gymnastics leotard you can always wear a tank top and shorts. …Winter time you can wear the same things but long sleeve gymnastics leotards come into season. You have to wear long sleeve gymnastics Leo's to meets. Hope this helped
Gymnastics helps strengthen your body, makes you more flexible, increases your confidence, and builds character.
If you want to get into gymnastics, ask a parent or adult to sign you up in a gymnasium that is near your neighborhood.
