you can brake your bones or sprain or strain them you have to be careful of how you do things so you don't get hurt so you don't have to go through major injuries

Well, the list almost seems endless! You can have:

  • broken bones
  • sprains
  • pulled muscles
  • torn muscles
  • fractures
  • rips (the callusses on your hands from the bars rips off)
  • in severe cases, head injuries due to hitting your head on the beam when tumbling or dismounting
  • Gymnastics is very hard on the back muscles and spine and shins as well.
