All gymnastics programs include lots of core conditioning including leg lifts, crunches, V-ups, handstand press work and planks. All exercises are performed with the proper body form and tightness.

Why do gymnasts have big thighs?
Why do gymnasts have big thighs? Gymnastics is basically high rep lower weight work. So squatting, jumping, tumbling, leaping, all done at bodyweight in high numbers of reps will grow the muscles in size. Likewise, look at the size of gymnast upper bodies – usually pretty big.
Why are gymnasts so short?
It is for a reason that gymnasts are mostly short. The shorter a gymnast is, the easier it is for them to rotate in the air or spin at high speeds. It is hard for long limbs and joints to handle intensive training. It can also be explained by keeping a law of physics in mind.
How do gymnasts get so jacked?
