Tulsa tumbling lessons | Episode #48 – No Pain, No Gains
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. All right. Today’s podcast is an important one. It’s Tulsa tumbling lessons, it’s something that we deal with every day, I think. I think I’ve started more than a few podcasts saw off like this. So I’m going to let you take this one of go ahead.
Yes. Our podcast today is no pain, no gain. Um, we’ve gone over injuries and injury prevention. Um, but this is going to be a little bit different. I mean, we deal, we’re getting older, we deal with pain every day. Um, we pushed through it and do our jobs 100%. Uh, we expect our athletes to do the same thing.
Yeah. Did you see me do forest anyway can swing to the day? I did. Yeah. I mean, I wasn’t feeling great, but I mean, my confidence came back. I ain’t as good as I once was, but I’m as good yeah.
Once as I ever was. And that I, that’s countryside, not too much country. Um, but no, we tell our athletes all the time tumbling even when done 100% right, it doesn’t feel great on the bodies. So when you do it wrong, it’s obviously going to feel worse. So there are ways to prevent that going over technique that we’ve preached about on every podcast. Um, if you listened to her injury prevention, Tulsa tumbling lessons, we do, we definitely go over ways that can slow down that wear and tear on the wear and tear on your body. Your body’s like a car. The more you drive that car, no matter what, even if you drive that car perfectly, you take care of that car, it’s going to have wear and tear.
Yeah. And, and you know, it’s, it’s not just preventing injuries because there are, there are two injuries, right? Your, your first injury is one that happens immediately. You hear a snap, you hear a pop, you feel a jolt. You know, you feel something, something is not right and you’re feeling that pain and then there’s injuries that happen over a long period of time, um, and kind of sneak up on you and you don’t even know what’s happening. And it comes from that bad technique. And so, um, not only drills can fix that bad technique, but conditioning and guess what? There’s pain and conditioning and if you’re not pushing and you’re not getting through it, um, listen, you’re going to have a harder time getting new skills when your body is not prepared for it.
Especially like we did a whole podcast on cheerleading, being in a sport, the sport, every sport there is deals with some sort of pain. Um, definitely conditioning. Conditioning is never great. Nobody just like, well, some people do love conditioning.
We have athletes that do, like every time I say, okay, let’s condition like you got that one athlete in the back. It’s like, yes,
some people like it, but those are the people that like that pain, like, like that purse. Then those are the kids
that are actually getting skills pretty quickly. They’re, they’re gaining skills in there. They’re trying things. They might
take a fall and they get right back up. Especially if you’re coming back from an injury. If you have, if you’ve worn down your wrists or ankles, you get to a point in your tumbling career where you’re going to be dealing with that pain. At that point. If you’ve had an ankle injury, you’re always going to feel something in that ankle. So it’s important to drill technique, condition that to where even though you’re going to feel it, um, you need to be able to tumble through it and not try to baby that ankle and then end up hurting something else while doing that. Well, I mean, we just had the Superbowl. Superbowl was,
uh, Sunday. And look at those. At those athletes. They are grown men. Are there any women, I don’t know if there’s women in pro football, does it go, I don’t want it enough football. I don’t either. I don’t know. Anyway, um, but they’re grown men, you know, their bodies are aching, they’re in pain and they’re having to do things to kind of cope with that. Um, but like can like concussions, they’re getting hit hard in their head with it and they don’t just go and sit out. They keep going, they keep pushing and they’re making millions and millions and millions of dollars because they’re keen. They’re going to keep pushing.
And, uh, I know a Wasa Rams varsity just had NCA and three girls competed on broken ankles or to warn ankle, like some sort of ankle issues. The very next day they were all three in boots. Yeah. But they did not let that stop their performance because all three of those athletes also had to throw a false,
I heard, you know, I heard this tale, I heard this tale of a, of a girl who had, Tulsa tumbling lessons, gotten hurt and gotten a concussion and then gotten, I guess she stayed out on the, on the routine or something. And then she got hit again. And so she got a second. Gotcha. And, and then she did something else and got a third concussion. And then, um, I don’t know if she has a doctor’s note. I don’t think she actually does, but she for two years, for two years has not even throwing a round off rebound because of this concussion that happened two years ago. And at her tumbling is not getting any better just sitting there. But she’s allowed to just kind of sit on the sidelines. She doesn’t pay for tumbling, she doesn’t do the tumbling. Um, but you know, I would encourage her to get out and try, just try, you know, and if something is just, just killing you to the point where you can’t then say, okay, at least I tried, you know,
but their doctors, ninth doctor doctors though his doctor’s notes help. Yeah, go get it checked out here has gotten to the point where you have to be able to do every aspect of cheery. It used to be you could just have good jumps. Oh,
just be a standard. But for guys, you know, you had the two types of guide cheerleaders, ones that could tumble and then ones that couldn’t tumble. So they s they stunned it. Now you’d have to be a stumbler and a tumbler. So it is a
becoming more and more of a sport. So they are looking for the well rounded cheerleaders. Um, especially if you’re doing hard floor tumbling even when done correctly, it’s not going to feel great. There’s just the mat and then the concrete or basketball floor right underneath. Yeah. So that’s where technique is. It’s most important because you’re gonna feel it. But learning correctly, learning to absorb your landings, there are ways to definitely help with that.
Hey, you know what, shout out to, uh, Cammie Marie. She, she is, um, she just signed up for our gold membership, so she has unlimited tumbling. She came last night, she stayed for a, what was it, advanced first, so she was here for advanced, um, and it was our first advanced class for Monday, so nobody else had signed up for it. So she was there by herself working on spring floor. And then she, um, which is, uh, an hour private is what that turns into. And then she was here working hard floor class, uh, with me and she is, she, Tulsa tumbling lessons, has kind of taken a break from all star. Um, but she’s only been tumbling on spring floor. So now she’s like, okay, I’m, I’m about to, I’m about to try out for, for a JV or varsity. I’ve got to do some work on the hard floor. And she stayed and worked a second hour on that hard floor class and then jumped right back, right back into, or no, another advanced class. And she saw some kids that she had known. And so they kind of, they’re like, come on, stay. And she was working her butt off and, and Tumblr
first how, or advanced class, she doesn’t tell me she was staying in the whole day. So I did
conditioner. I don’t know if she was planning on staying the whole day, but she was like, as it came on, like they had paid for it. So why not like no pain, no gain. And she gained a lot of competence. She knows, she knows now. She worked three hours straight and, um, and no issues. And then they, we condition that she’s feeling today, churches, he’s struggling getting out of bed, falling asleep and sunglasses. Uh, but now she’s a great kid. Good attitude. Uh, and she’s one of those that just kept pushing and kept pushing her technique on hard floor is not the best, but she was willing to keep pushing for it. She didn’t let that slow her down or stop her. So shout out to her.
Yes. Come in and be that athlete. Take care living as a sport, a serious sport, put the work in inside and outside. That way you will be the healthiest humbler you can be because just doing it here, we condition the last five, 10 minutes maybe of classes, privates. Um, that’s not going to be enough to counteract the skills you’re going to be doing. Every skill requires a certain amount of conditioning and if you’re just tumbling once a week, not everybody does that. Yeah. Gold membership, right. Right. Tumble as much as you want it. So if you’re only tumbling once a week at your school, and even if it’s not as supervised tumbling, you’re not going to get a ton out of it. So getting in as much as you can, put in that inside work, the outside work, um, it will help you in the long run.
Yeah, it’s just that slower pace and that whenever it’s at that slower pace of gaining skills, it’s easy to get bored with it. It’s easy to kind of get frustrated and kind of brush it off. Um, don’t get bored. Don’t you keep pushing yourself. Listen, if, if you don’t come to our classes, because after every class we come in and we talked to parents, we give you homework on what you need to be doing until that next time we see you. And we expect you to do it because we will ask you and if we don’t see a difference, will know that you didn’t go and do your homework. So if you do not have a class with us, if you don’t do any kind of of class with us or you know, we don’t come to your school or anything, this is what you can work on.
You can work on abs where you can work on core, you can do, um, you can do crunches, you can do wall sets to work on legs. My favorite cafes, phrases rested. I think it gives every single one of our athletes that homework. Um, but it’s a good one. It’s a good one. Keep it up. Uh, um, something that I kind of came up with myself. Put your toes up underneath the couch, um, or have, you know, one of your siblings. Hold your feet down. And then con, instead of going up to crunches, hold your body at like a 45 degree angle while you’re keeping your arms like by your ears. Um, and then hold that for 30 seconds. You, there’s so much you can do at home. You don’t need whites. You can just, you can use your own body weight to push through and get this conditioning to make your body stronger and prepare you for tumbling.
