Today is our 130th podcasts. So we’re going to be going over some of our old Jenks tumbling lessons podcasts and just revisiting some of the points, um, and, and kind of talking about our favorites. 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 breaths slur and we are the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 130 podcast rusty? One three Oh one 30
under 30. And what would you say your favorite podcast so far has been?
You know, I think that the one that we’ve, uh, that I have told kids to go back and listen to the most is definitely, uh, the, the progressions one, which is the very first podcast that we recorded. And then, um, and actually I went back and listened to it and it’s kind of cringy. It’s, it’s the, yeah, yeah. Yeah. I don’t remember how many times we like recorded it. Um, or if we just like went through and, and just did it, but we weren’t that great back then,
it’s definitely taken some time to get used to. Um, and that’s where in this podcast we’re going to be revisiting progressions, kind of touching base on them, updating them. We’ll always be updating and progressing. Uh, uh, mine, I the one podcasts I did go back and re listen to, uh, one of my favorites is, uh, the one with cadenas. He had a lot of good, a lot of good topics in that, in that one podcast. Um, but no, so going over, we’ve done a lot of podcasts on hundred 30 different podcasts. Uh, the most important one is probably progressions. Even we bring up in almost every podcast, we bring up progressions in some way, shape or form. We’re even writing a book about it. So it’s that important to us. So going over and like I said, it was the first podcast we ever did. So updating it a little bit, uh, making sure we go through those progressions because especially there are different kinds of cheerleaders or different kinds of tumblers. Um, if you are a school cheerleader, your progressions, we’ll be a little bit different than an allstar cheerleaders or hard floor in Springfield. One that really for spring floor or rec, if you’re just at tumbling for fun, your progressions are going to be a little bit different than the other two.
What is expected for you to, to have at all star versus high school or if you’re just tumbling for fine, just like rusty said, the rec side, um, your, your requirements are going to be different obviously. Um, so the first one we’re going to revisit is that progressions podcast. Remember that we talked about building a house and that we want you to build your house with diligence. Um, meaning that you want to build your house carefully. We talked about the, uh, the foundation, which is your basics, your technique. That’s something that you can never ever forget about. Otherwise your house will break down, your house will crumble and uh, and your foundation just kind of holds everything else up. Then a rusty, do you remember what
the walls were? Yes, the walls. That’s your competence. So, so
the, the foundation is your basics, your technique, um, everything that we’re teaching you that you need to always revisit. And then the walls being your confidence. If, if you are lacking confidence, then your walls hold up your roof. And so you’re never going to be able to uh, well have that roof. And the roof is the next part, which is throwing the skill on your own. Um, so you got your, just to kind of backtrack, we’ve got our foundation that is our basics, our technique and most of them for most important. You don’t want cracks in your foundation. Let me tell Ya. Um, and then your walls, which are, uh, your confidence, um, which holds up your roof, which means that you’re doing it by yourself. You’re, you’ve got this beautiful roof and you were throwing that skill all on your own. And then bonus, there was your front door, which kind of everybody has a different front door, some at a glass, some are just solid wood, some have different, you know, fancy stuff on it, some don’t.
And, uh, and that’s just making your front door, your tumbling pass all your own, adding your fire, adding all those different specialties. Yeah. Palaces. So if you are interested in finding out more about progressions, you can check out our Jenks tumbling lessons podcast, uh, which is actually number three on the list, but it was the first one we did. Um, and it Kinda goes over that, uh, that the progressions of each level, um, starting from beginner all the way up to advanced. But we did add elite recently, which are elite is a, our elite level is a working fools, devils, Arabians, anything that has like a spin in it. Yeah.
Spinning, learning the spinning, learning how to control your body and spinning. Yeah. Um, now Colton and quickly tell me the differences in progressions for spring floor tumblers and hard floor tumblers. So on spring floor, which is more, uh, obviously all star. Okay.
Um, they’re looking for lots of specialty passes that add flair to the past. So, um, with backhand springs you should be able to do specialty to backhand spring, whether that’s front walk over, um, or step out out of a backhand spring. Then you’ve got a, at once you learn your Tuck, you should have a specialty through to Tuck, um, layout, same thing you should have, especially through the layout. Um, and then you kind of entered into the world of whips, learning whips, um, you learned punch fronts, step outs and uh, all that stuff. Then once you get into fools spinning, you can do, um, specialty through the fools, uh, Arabians, things that have that little extra spin and them, um, to that past. Now those aren’t necessarily used in hard floor tumbling or, or high school. Uh, and if it is, you’re extremely talented athlete because doing that stuff on hard floor is extremely different.
Absolutely. A lot of the time on a hard floor it goes back handspring, tech layout fall. And after they’ve got the
well then it’s whipped through to full specialty through the falls and all that fun stuff. Right? Right, right. So, uh, the progressions are a little bit different. Um, but depending on your specific need, we can kind of tune them. Our program is nowhere near and all size fits all programs. So we want everybody to be able to get what they need for whatever it is they do. Now the next podcast that we kind of want to revisit is another one of my personal favorites. It’s tumbling outside of your Jenks tumbling lessons gym.
Right? So and that, that means like tumbling at home,
tumbling at home on the trampoline, getting a parent or a friend that spot you. Yes,
that is a big no, no, no matter what. No matter who they are, no matter how skilled of a tumble or they, their background, you should never be having your friend or parents spot you. That’s a big, that’s just a no, just don’t do it. Don’t let it happen. Just don’t do it. It’s not worth the, um, we are in the process of writing our Jenks tumbling lessons book and in the book there’s a practice from home section. The only thing you should be practicing from home is something you’ve asked your Jenks tumbling lessons coach. If you can practice from home, and if it’s a skill you’ve mastered, then we will tell you that it is okay to practice that.
And, and the best way to get to that point where you can practice at home is to do all the conditioning and the stretching required for homework, which is kind of considered practicing at home, but you’re not actually doing any tumbling.
Yeah. There’s a lot of stuff you can do at home that isn’t tumbling related, that can help your Jenks tumbling lessons team.
Yeah. With, with standing back, hand, Spring Standing Tux, those things, um, are a little bit easier to do at home on your own, but it still requires that mastery. Once you do get, uh, as like, I guess Standing Tuck mastered. Um, heck didn’t we do a Standing Tux at, uh, at, at the Casino one time? Yeah. I mean, and we still did it with technique and we’ll still use the technique that we’ve been taught years and years ago. Um, or else we wouldn’t be be getting over, I don’t think. Um, so use the technique that we teach you, um, and, and let us know if you’re wanting to do it outside of the gym and we’ll let you know if what we think about that. Um, another thing that we touched base on in that podcast is watching fail videos at home. You know, some, some people are like, oh, I want to, I want to go watch youtube. And they start with the tumbling, but then it goes to tumbling fails. Do not watch tumbling fail videos. Yeah.
Subconsciously messing with your brain. You are subconsciously messing with your skills. Or if you haven’t even done that skill, but you see a tumbling fail video of it, by the time you do get to that skill, you’re instantly going to be scared of it. So it’s not worth it.
Well, and, and I mentioned this in that same very, that same podcast, um, when, whenever I was in the military, uh, it, it was the same kind of process watching those videos as brainwashing. So you, you’re watching it, you’re subconsciously seeing it and believe it or not, you are thinking about it, um, in the back of your Jenks tumbling lessons mind. And, and those things come up and it’s usually at the worst time. So don’t do it. Please stay away from those tumbling fail videos. They are dangerous. Um, and then the next one is the three parts of a skill. That’s that a is our Jenks tumbling lessons last of the three podcasts that we’re going to revisit today. Anyway, we may do another one like this. Um, but the three parts of every skill, this is something that I still to this day talk about telling kids to go listen to this very podcast, which was a number six or six podcasts,
one of the, in the first week of podcasts. I’ve got a lot of good, good topics in the first week. Um, yes, the three parts, every skill has it and all three parts are equally as important. The take off, um, the actual skill, your body position in the skill and then the landing or the finish. Um, all three very important.
And it doesn’t matter if you’re doing a round off or you’re doing a layout, they still have these three parts. So the takeoff for a backhand spring will be a cit and a take off for like a Taco or a layout or a full will be a set which will set you up, um, straight up in the air. Uh, instead of, you know, flying backwards like you weren’t a backhand spring. It’s important to remember the two, uh, and differentiate, differentiate from the two. Um, and then the body position, which is part two, what you’re actually doing in the air. Um, whether that’s a layout or you know, a, a full, everything is going to be to have their own individual body yes.
Position. And then us as coaches been Merker teaking we usually tell you you’re doing the takeoff correctly, you need more work in the second part of your body position or you’re doing the first two parts perfect. We need you to clean up the finish. So when you can break it into three sections, every skill, um, it’s easy to pinpoint what we need to work on.
Yeah, absolutely. And then obviously the finish is where you’re landing and that’s kind of, kind of seems like, especially for standing, that’s the one that athletes kind of forget to do the most. They’ll open up really early [inaudible] at all. They just want to try to throw their body. Yeah. So, um, anyway, those three parts of every skill are very, very important. Remember it’s the set or the cit, um, the takeoff. Then the part two is body positions of what you’re actually doing during, uh, during the skill. And then part three is the finish. I’m very, very, very important, uh, I to remember those things. Uh, so this is, this has been cool to kind of revisit our Jenks tumbling lessons old podcasts and um, you know, if there’s been any changes or just kinda reiterate the same thing. We’re going to be doing this for a long time.
Yeah. 300 podcasts. I’m sure we’ll be going over some. We didn’t on 120. Yeah. So if you’re with us on our Jenks tumbling lessons hundred and 30th podcasts, um, let us know. Let us know if you’ve listened to this. Um, because we really, really, really want, uh, people to use this as almost homework. Um, and it’s free. We don’t get paid for it and you don’t pay for it. So use it because it helps. It helps. Podcasting is kind of cool. It’s something that nobody else is really doing and we’re excited to do it. We do a, we do seven a week, so one for every day. And, and, uh, we’re, we’re busting them out for you guys. And it’s Scott.
Another point where if an athlete or a parent is what we’ve done this, we’ve done this, what else can my athletes do? If they haven’t listened to the podcast, then I don’t have sympathy.
Yeah. Listen to the bikes. Yeah, let’s do it. We always bring it up.
It’s free knowledge after that. Then there’s other things we can look on that we can work on. But this is free. It’s easy. None of them go, well this one’s 13 minutes, but I’d none of them go longer than 15. I think the longest one we ever did was 15 all of them average around 10. So take 10 minutes of a drive something. Yeah. And use, use these.
Yeah, for sure. So anyway, thank you for, for being with us for our hundred and 30th podcast. Um, if you’re interested in finding out more about us, you can check out our Jenks tumbling lessons website. It’s justice tumbling co.com
