Planning to buy a gymnastic tumble track
I am 27 years old. I focus on a tumbling based workout every single day. I am lucky to have a backyard shed where I can unfold gymnastic mats and practice my skills. I work on all sorts of floor tumbling tricks such as back and front walkovers, back handsprings and back tucks. Recently I was thinking about taking my skills to the next level. I want to string my tricks together and try something more challenging. For that, I need more length and a bit of a bounce from my tumbling surface. I researched online and found that there are portable tumble tracks available. It looks like a trampoline and yet it is a straight line that is narrow and long. The track features a line down the middle much like the lines on a major highway. It has a bit of give to the surface, but isn’t buoyant like a trampoline. I particularly like the opportunities a track would provide. I could perform a roundoff backhandspring followed by a back tuck so easily. The track could be positioned in my backyard and I could protect it from the elements with a tarp. I have seen that they are 10, 15 and 20 feet long. Of course, every extra foot costs more money. I won’t be Tumbling for that many more years, but I don’t think that is a big concern. I would hope that this would be something my teenagers would use someday. It would provide a super fun toy that promotes exercise. I believe that I will get a great workout by increasing difficulty and adding tricks together. It involves a lot of strength and cardio. I also involve different muscles when connecting. It would just be plain fun.
