New Equipment: Bungee Incline

I feel lucky to have scored this awesome piece of equipment last week! It works great as an incline for rolls, extensions, walkovers, handsprings, tucks, and more, but I also plan to use it for vaulting drills like handstands and eventually bar drills, as well.

To describe its versatility, you also can turn it around backwards so you benefit from a bigger rebound with more clearance for rotation above the floor.

It’s an excellent cushion, too, for over rotation, excessive rebounds, and keeping form with more complicated drills and skills. I like to think of it as a huge catcher’s mitt at times. Additionally, it can provide some excellent core conditioning.

At 4 x 6 feet, it’s not exactly a small piece of equipment in our current space. The bungee incline is inflatable so it offers unique characteristics that mats and pits cannot. You have the shock absorbency, the rebound, and the adjustability of both. But it’s easy enough to break down or move out of the way if we don’t need it.

Any way you look at it, it will be a valuable piece of equipment in our gym, especially for my more advanced gymnasts. I look forward to us trying it out in a number of ways.

Thanks for sharing in my excitement.

Have a great and successful day!

Sincerely,
