I was visiting a local gym the other day and took a moment to watch a few gymnasts practice on the uneven bars.
A young gymnast gracefully cast to handstand --front giant-- pirouette to back giant -- clean layout flyaway and sticks it! Her elegance made it look easy!
The next gymnast was quite obviously less experienced and a bit shy. Struggling to cast to handstand, her face reddened, and I could feel her embarrassment.
In an attempt to make the gymnast feel feel more secure, a coach and two teammates ran around the gym, gathering as many unused mats as they could find. The other on-looking coaches weren’t thrilled about their commandeering all of the mats.
Stacking the mats underneath the bars, they formed a giant makeshift spotting wedge beneath the gymnast. While this makeshift wedge served its purpose of spotting the gymnast, problem was it had to be readjusted after every drill; and, rather than using their time to practice, two gymnasts were stuck holding the mats.
The gymnasts were getting antsy waiting for their turn and I could see tension was rising in the other coaches, waiting to use the mats.
I rubbed my forehead in frustration, “There is a smarter, better way to do this. This is only one exercise and it is affecting the entire gym!”
Good News: There IS a better way!

The rigid hook and loop fasteners on each component piece are to thank for that.
