Kid going across at first: boing, boing, boing!

Dad: flop, flap, almost lose pants.

For most dads it would end there. Maybe as a way to be funny, but this dad is so much more. Good for him for sticking with it. And good for his family (and it seems everyone else around him) for being so supportive.

I imagine the additional strength and flexibility dad gained from this will also be helpful in general.

u/Rednex73 May 28 '22

Muscle ups and pull ups are different. Muscle ups, especially with someone with significant body weight, like myself and this gentleman here, are some of the hardest exercises you can do. Handstands, by comparison, are easy.

u/FeldgrauFox May 28 '22

Where did he try a muscle up? I saw him attempt a bar pullover, which is an easy way to get on top of a bar without doing a pull up

16

u/graepphone May 28 '22

He didn't, he opted for the ladder because a muscle was probably too much.

Hand stand is incredibly easy. It's more about locking out the shoulders and balancing than it is about strength. Being good at it is hard though.

u/Hoiafar May 28 '22 edited May 28 '22

He's probably been physically active most of his life in one form or another and have the bone and tendon strength to withstand it.

There's a pretty good correlation between risk of injury in older age and strength in younger years.

I thought the same thing. How rich are these people? To have space like that and a balance beam in their house.

58

u/Keep_a_Little_Soul May 28 '22

The basics is not that expensive. I did minor gymnastics as a kid. I had a floor balance beam and mat. The bar and everything is where it gets expensive! 😶

Actually, PARENT TIP!! The 4 panel mat was the best thing I was ever bought for Christmas! I STILL use it to this day. For everything other than gymnastics but still! They are FANTASTIC. We used to make forts with it, climb on it, use it as a Barbie prop, jump over it, on it, even lightly spray it with water and it made a GREAT slip n slide!!!

Now-a-days I use it as a sound wall for recording better audio, backgrounds for videos/photography and to hide messes on video calls, a place to drape fabric/clothes I need to fold, soft surface to string my guitar, and still sometimes... the previous uses as a kid. 😂 Plus some other stuff.

‼️ SO GET YOUR KID A 4 PANEL GYMNASTICS MAT!! Regardless of if their do gymnastics! Best thing my parents bought me growing up HANDS DOWN. A proper one is $200 but it will entertain your kids for literal decades. A good one is WORTH IT. I've had mine a decade or more now and I still use it regularly for all sorts of things.

u/weed_blazepot May 28 '22 edited 29d ago

Gymnastics is an insanely expensive sport, but the "home gym" stuff is honestly the least expensive part of it. That looked like standard Tumbl Trak equipment like the Brianna Beam and jr pro bars, and air traks. Most of this stuff is bought over the course of 3-5 years as your kids advance to certain skills, and most of it runs roughly $250 to $1000 a pop. It's not cheap by any means, but people pay more than that for phones, and you do aquire it over years, and often second hand for cheaper as kids are constantly leveling up and growing and selling this stuff. Gyms will also buy it for parents and let them make payments sometimes.

Space wise, other than the beam, most of it breaks down, deflates, or folds up. I don't think they have an abnormal amount of room for middle/upper middle class considering his practice in the living room, right by the TV and almost falling into the corner of his entertainment center. They're outside for a lot of this for good reason.

Also as someone said below, panel mats are the best. Great for the kids to play on, great for exercise/yoga, they make incredible forts, throw some blankets on them and they're a quick bed for a sleepover, and they last forever. They're a fun "childhood investment" even without gymnastics. It's gonna be $200-$250 for a good one but they're basically indestructible. Over a decade or more, that's a pretty decent ROI for fun.

I don’t think it’s anywhere near tens of thousands. Maybe a few grand in total.

44

u/Rdbjiy53wsvjo7 May 28 '22

Probably quite a bit, it's expensive.

The home equipment probably cost $1,000-$2,000, I know because we've bought some for my daughter who is in gymnastics. You can get most of it off of Amazon for pretty reasonable price.

The real cost comes with the lessons. To have this setup at home, the skill level for her age, she is probably on the developmental/junior olympic team (i.e., if she was SUPER good, she would qualify for nationals and Olympics, it's the program all Olympic athletes start in, but most don't make it that far). For this type of program, which most gyms have, looking at 15 hours a week for training, minimum, up to 35 by the time they are seniors in high school. Add in costs for competitions, leo's, uniforms, bags, travel, etc., looking at probably $1,000-$1,500/month. A good portion of athletes that stick with it make it to D1 schools. Our gym has a senior class of 5-6, half of them made it to big universities (e.g., Nebraska, Mizzou, Arizona, etc.).

My daughter is in a lower competition program, goes 6 hours a week, we pay $250/month when out of season, $500/month during competition season (6 months per year). $/month go up as she levels up. She will be lucky if she gets a scholarship for a local college.

Came for this comment. I was a competitive gymnast for many years (I'm in my 30s now). It was SO expensive. I watched this video like... yes if my dad had bought mats and a beam and bars and mini tramps I probably would have made it further than I did in USAG.

I appreciate this guy's commitment and interest in his daughter's sport. My dad was a single dad (my mom passed when I was young) who did everything to get me to gym practice 6 days a week. I am grateful for all that he did, but I'm genuinely more grateful he saw his 14 year old daughter felt stuck in her sport. I felt obligated to keep going and get a college scholarship, but I was so burnt out I was purposefully hurting myself. Like in the ER every other month trying to get out of practice.

I can appreciate a parent who takes an active interest in their children, whether it's helping provide equipment at home, or being the "bad guy" who removes them from a situation they don't feel they can leave otherwise. It was a lot easier to quit when I could "blame it" on my dad forcing me to quit

u/61114311536123511 May 28 '22

I'm happy your dad got you out. My parents let me drop out of high school for similar reasons, ngl. I was wrecking myself and had been for many years and the preassures of school just didn't pair well with the amount of time I need(ed) to dedicate myself to my own mind and mental health. I'll get my high school diploma in the next 10 years, I know that, but I also know that an attempt now would be an exercise in failure to such a degree that stepping back and doing it later is the right way.

I love this dad's determination and example. Raising the bar. Literally.

u/themang0 May 28 '22

u/Spades4aids May 28 '22

His daughter is so good tho wtf!? And he’s not bad either, better than me and I was in gymnastics for like a year as a kid ☠️

u/Pepperspray24 May 28 '22

This honestly gives me hope. I’m in my 20s and overweight. Not a lot of things give me hope about losing weight and being able to do any sort of cool things like gymnastics or figure skating.

His final wolf spin is awesome! Those things are hard to do. Plus they're ugly.

She is learning so much about loving and supporting your family, sportsmanship, growth mindset, having fun doing something you love, being unafraid to be silly or make a fool out of yourself, especially for someone you love. I could go on. This is so so great!

Plot twist: Daughter tries gymnastics to bond with her father. Daughter is a natural, father just doesn't have the skills.

u/starlinguk May 28 '22

Come on, he did really well for someone starting out at that age.

u/Obi-Wan_Peyote May 28 '22

This guy is a fucking king. My own father wouldn't even come to our scout functions. Think Homer Simpson, but dumber and more openly hostile.

u/ThatLilBluejay May 28 '22

Dude, do we have the same father? Long lost siblings?

u/Maniacal_Monkey May 28 '22

Awesome. Feel like between cuts there might have been a couple trips to the ER & a couple cases of Ibuprofen

u/DonutAboundConverse May 28 '22

Also, gymnastics will make you fit. as. FUCK. Seriously, look at the Olympic athletes, and there ain't NOBODY as fit as the gymnastics guys. They have 45% muscle mass and 13% body fat.

If this dude can really commit, he'll be in the best shape of his life.

u/TeraFirangiBaap May 28 '22

This man is prepping for his child's victory.

Picture this if you will, five hundred weeks in the future, l'il missy goes to the finals and wins gold.

And one proud papa cart wheels all the way to the top of the podium

Gotta respect the straight up send the guy gives, absolutely no regard for his aging body.

u/CK1ing May 28 '22

I'm not even 20 and I'd break so many things trying all of that

u/Sharkytrs May 28 '22

props to them it looks hella fun

u/Jpardise May 28 '22

The Dad may end up getting better at gymnastics than his daughter. I'm sure after a few years the daughter will always remember their moments together. Such a treasure!

u/Amadornor May 28 '22

Way to go dad! My entire body broke watching him.
