Hello and welcome to Tulsa tumble talk with justice tumbling company, the one and only Tulsa tumbling show where we your Tulsa tumbling experts. Answer the questions that we get from parents and athletes on a daily basis. We are your hosts, Coulton cruise and rusty breath slur and we are the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. All right, so we are back with Tulsa tumbled talk and a rusty and Colton. This is, this is us, this is our deal and image. We, uh, we love doing this. We, Jenks tumbling lessons, like I said in our actual, our last podcast, we don’t get paid to do this. We do this for free to give out information and a and hopefully help someone out there. Jenks tumbling lessons, if, if we’ve helped only one, then it’s all worth it. It’s worth it. I mean, so that’s what this is all about. This, uh, this podcast is coming back from an injury. We have a lot of athletes coming in and out of our gym and we have luckily been blessed enough to not have any injuries in our gym. Hey man, and knock on wood. Um, and so we do have athletes though who have gotten hurt and other gyms and now

or dealing with the previous injury and just, yeah, just coming back into the game of tumbling

and, and a half to take some baby steps to get back into it and have someone to help them do drills and, and get their body back in shape. Kind of like a tumbling rehab.

Yes. Uh, I came back from an injury myself, but I did not do it the normal way. I went right back into doing what I was doing when I injured myself.

We don’t, we don’t, uh, suggest,

I don’t recommend that at all. No, absolutely not. Baby steps is the way to go. And it’s also depending on whatever you injured, Jenks tumbling lessons, be smart about whatever you injured. So when coming back from an injury, if your doctor gave you any kind of physical therapy, um, even if they gave you a only a certain amount of time you’re supposed to do it. Step one is always continue to do that physical. Yeah.

And you might think, and parents always think, oh, well, doctors don’t know cheerleading. They just don’t know tumbling well no, but they do know bodies and they do no injuries. And so take, take everything they say to heart because it’s really, really important. Um, so with that being said, if your doctor hasn’t cleared you to tumble, don’t humble, don’t do it, don’t push it. Jenks tumbling lessons, if it’s a, if you have an elbow injury or an arm or a wrist injury or, or something with your shoulder, don’t be doing round offs and cartwheels and handstands until you’ve been cleared. Uh, this is by no means we’re, we’re not doctors. This is not doctor rusty and doctor Colton show. Um, so listen to your doctor, period. We, we, we will stand by that, that doctor and whatever they decide.

Yes, I know it’s hard to watch your friends tumble and you want to get in a week early. But it, if you get in a week before they tell you you’re released and you do more damage and then you’re out for months, it’s, it’s not worth it. So step one is always listening to your doctor. Always continue to do whatever physical therapy there’s there is. And then step number two, go back through the progressions you boy, that some kids have been out for. Depending on the injury out for months and months, your body loses muscle and flexibility, flexibility. And so getting that muscle memory back, going back through the progressions, it won’t take very long. It shouldn’t take very long. It’ll be like riding a bike. But it is something that’s important to do.

And you know, even if you’re getting in a class or you’re doing, you know, uh, privates, spend more time on the warmups, spend a little bit of extra time. Do instead. If you used to going, uh, you know, one way down, uh, doing handstands, do two ways back and forth to do handstands. Jenks tumbling lessons, usually the length of the mat is where, how long we do it. Um, but double it, you know, take your time to get your body, get getting back into the swing of things. It’s going to help you out a lot. So we have one step one, listen to your mom, to your doctor. If you are not released, do not tumble. Step two, what were the, it’s going to be, take it slow and do your progressions. Your progressions are key. If a, if you’re trying to rush to go a, I, I had a full last time. Let’s just go straight forward. No, no, no, no.

I tore my essay on a full, let’s do a full, no, that’s the worst thing you can do. So number three. Number three is communication with your coaches. If there is any kind of uncomfortability, any kind of pain and your previous injury, this is not tough. It out time. This is not, try to be a trooper and not show weakness. No, you should have that relationship with your coach to where you do let them know, hey, that one landed a little bit uncomfortable and then we know how to go from that. We don’t want to keep pushing you and pushing you and have you risk reentering that same injury.

Well, and here’s the thing is that if you’re not communicating with us and things are getting worse, but you know, you’re, you’re released it, the doctor says you’re okay, but you do something to that to tear. Uh, even if it’s the slightest hair that’s going to just get bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger. So we have to address it then and there. Nothing wrong if you’re signed up for an hour class or you are in for an hour private. There’s nothing wrong with cutting it in half. There’s nothing wrong with saying, oh, that, that really hurt. I should probably slow down. Jenks tumbling lessons, don’t, don’t be that person who just wants to be the hero and just keep pushing through because you will regret that

we’d rather be safe than sorry. Yes. We’d rather you have to take more time out of your tumbling career cause you only have a certain amount of time. Like I’m 30 and I still tumble, but it hurts my entire body. I’m 30 and I don’t tumble anymore because it hurts my money and take advantage of it. Why you can, don’t spend extra time on the injured list. Hmm. Jenks tumbling lessons, so that’s our number three is, and you, you’ll hear it in a lot of podcasts. Communication with your coaches and your tumbling career, whether it’s coming back from an injury or not, is very, very, very important.

Yeah. Communication, whether you’re injured or not, just just being able to tell your, your coach, man that that really hurt my ankles at what do I need to do to fix it. And hopefully we’ve trained you to the point where you know what to do to fix it, but still communicate with that are with us and to let us know how you’re feeling and how we can be there the next time. A rusty, uh, the last one,

last one, uh, drills and conditioning do a lot of drills that, like you said, there’s no reason if you’re coming back from some sort of injury in your legs, knees, ankles, if we can do drills where you’re not landing and putting your full weight right when you came back. If we can do drills like setting up on your back or something like that, that’s the way to go until we do condition your legs enough or your ankle and f whatever was injured until we condition it to the point where it’s ready to be supporting your full body weight, drill it up

well and we don’t, if you say a shoulder injury or an ankle injury, if you get into tumbling and you’re not using the drills and you are handicapping that foot so you’re putting more pressure on that other leg or that other shoulder or whatever it might be, then then you’re risking injuring that shoulder. Jenks tumbling lessons, so yeah, the drills that conditioning making sure. And we’ve all seen like kids who have a broken arm, when they take that cast off their, their arm has shrunk or their cat or their leg or has shrunk.

Um, that’s the last part of this conditioning over conditioning, whatever. Like on set, if it was your right leg, mainly conditioning your right leg because that’s going to be what? Lost the muscle on flexibility. Yeah. Jenks tumbling lessons, if it’s your shoulders, condition your shoulders,

and depending on the injury, we can set you up with homework. We always give our kids homework, um, with what things that you need to be doing for that specific injury, uh, along with whatever the doctor, the rehabilitation the doctor has given you. Uh, so it’s, it’s really, really, really important. Just take it slow. There’s no rush. Even if, uh, there’s try outs tomorrow, let guess what your coaches at your school or your, your all star gym, they know you’re coming back from an injury. Any, any coach is gonna like push you and say, uh, I know you just got released, but girl, you better have a full, uh, by tomorrow that that coach is not looking out for your best interest. Um, and uh, don’t take that pressure. Don’t, don’t do it. Don’t give into it. Yeah.

So tumbling is a very dangerous sport. There are injuries. Um, so coming back from an injury is something a lot of kids have to deal with, even if it’s not a serious injury. Um, coming back from the injury, it could be a mental injury that could a whole mentor game and then you can listen to our podcasts on mental blocks. Jenks tumbling lessons, but injuries are something that happens. So knowing how to come back from them is very important because I’ve seen that too many times where kids come in because they were out so long and they want to get right back to where they were. So they tried to go right back to what they were doing before they got injured and then they reenter the same injury or like Colton said, and ended up becoming a whole new injury cause they’re trying to baby that one leg or ankle or elbow or something.

So we, we did mention con uh, communication. I want to kind of reiterate communication. We kind of aimed it towards your specific coach, but every single coach that you work with, if they’re spotting you, if they are standing there, if they are, um, even just watching you let them know because we have, we have [inaudible] and Hannah it, we might know your specific situation, but those coaches might not. If you go to another gym, those coaches might not. If you are at your high school, your coach might not know your specific situation. So communicate with every coach that you deal with just so they know, just so they can give you the best advice for you individually. We don’t want to, um, give you one size fits all coaching, so communicate, communicate, communicate.
