Episode #63 – More In, More Out

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. Morin. More out, you’ve read the title, uh, what could this possibly be about?

The Morin more out? That is a, the more you put into your tumbling, the more you’re going to get out of it. Absolutely. I’ve always said that if you’re tumbling just once a week, it’s usually an hour a week. If you’re doing that, um, there’s only so much you can learn in one hour, once a week more. If you’re tumbling and twice a week, three times a week, you’re going to see progression faster. You’re going to get physically stronger, faster. Tulsa Cheerleading, it’s just to be in advanced or competitive cheerleader tumbling once a week isn’t really realistic.

Yeah. Yeah. I mean, here’s what you need to think of it as. Okay. Think of it as depositing into your tumbling, right? So, uh, and, and it really comes down to confidence, how you feel about your tumbling. Um, you make withdraws and you make deposits. So, uh, more n you can, the more you put in, the more withdrawals you can take. Um, so, uh, deposit would be an hour practice put it, the more hours of practice you put in, the more you’re gonna get out of it. It’s the same thing with drills. It’s the same thing with boosting your confidence. It’s the same thing with, uh, your attitude, right? We had a podcast a long time ago, uh, called your attitude, your future. This is similar to it, but it, it doesn’t just look at the attitude, which is more of a mental outlook. It, it looks at the entire physical aspect of it as a whole. So

tumbling, uh, it’s, it’s one of the hardest sports there. It’s dangerous. It’s competitive. Uh, so putting in hours like every other sport, there’s not a single other sport that would only train one hour a week, one day a week. Tulsa Cheerleading, we have this gold membership. We have these athletes who are doing the gold membership are taking advantage of it. And it’s been awesome to see. I’m an athlete coming. She’s coming back from an injury. Uh, now she’s in almost three hours a day of classes. She stays up here. Um, and just in the two weeks she has been doing it. It’s crazy to see how physically strong she’s gotten, but also just her skills that she was barely landing on spring floor two weeks ago. Um, has she has fixed or technique? She’s moved on to a harder skills. She’s never worked in full before, but she’s really, really close to that now. I’m just in two weeks alone and now she is a school tree later. So now as strong and she’s gotten in that two weeks on spring floor. Uh, now we got to get that same power on hard floor, but with how much she’s in here, it should be an easy process.

Yeah. And, and by no means are we saying that the gold membership is what has fixed her tumbling or, or whatnot. It’s, it’s not easy. It’s not easy for her. Whenever she first came for the first a three hour day that she was in. So she came in and we kept asking her, hey, you gonna stay for the next one, you’re going to say for the next one. And she was exhausted, but she kept pushing through and now she’s able to come and do a three day practice or three hour, three hour practice, um, which jumps from hard floor to spring floor and then back down to hard floor working drills working. So she’s getting a good, uh, this one particular athletes getting a good, well rounded, um, feel within the three hours that she’s here. Yeah.

One day. And was it a hard, a hard floor running tumbling. And then we did the next hour or spring floor running tumbling and cause she had done both. Then the next hour we just focused on standing. Yeah. So she’s getting that well rounded and like I said, it’s not the gold membership that’s doing it. This athlete has also doing the conditioning we tell her to do at home. Tulsa Cheerleading, she is now coming in for privates as well. Uh, this is a kid who’s hungry to make the team. She wants to be okay

mentioned. She comes in with a really, really, really good attitude. Tulsa Cheerleading, and not a hateful attitude, not wanting to work. She’s ready to work and that’s why we’re a, we’re excited to see her and put more work and invest more time into her as well.

And it doesn’t have to be classes or privates. You can be doing plenty of stuff at your home. Uh, conditioning drills. Um, little things like that. A lot of these athletes do all star or have some sort of school practice every day. Hold yourself accountable to doing certain skills everyday at school practice or every day or in the gym. A lot of these kids I’d do both hard floor or a school and all star, literally end up living in the gym and are in the gym every day. So making tumbling a priority and holding yourself accountable to doing certain skills and the more skills that you have, the more you should be timberline

and then the more that you put forward, the more opportunities you’re going to have. I could so see her going on to high school and being like a captain, you know? And that’s then that will operate. Would that will, uh, um, open up opportunities just in itself, you know? And so we want you to be a well rounded athlete. We want you to be versatile. We you to always stay on top of your own tumbling cause nobody knows you’re tumbling better than you do. Um, and so you, you’re going to have to put in a lot of work, uh, but that it’ll all be worth it. It’ll all be worth it. Um, the, the skills that you get, the reward that comes from that, it’s just incredible. And then the life lessons, the life lessons that you get from knowing, hey, you know what, this is what I overcome. I was, I was stuck in the middle block and then one day I just quit that mental block, cold Turkey. I just said, I’m not going to deal with you anymore. Like that’s, that’s the success story. Um, we’ve seen it before, but that’s six success, a success story that can take you on, into adulthood. And, and, and, uh, we all constantly reminded of what you can conquer, what you can come can achieve.

So yes, put in more if this is something you’re passionate about, make it a priority. Like we said, we understand everybody can’t be up in the gym every day or pay to be in the gym every day. There’s plenty of stuff you can do at home. We’ve done podcasts on things you can do at home conditioning. Uh, cause conditioning will go a long way. If you’re conditioning your body at home every day or every other day, I promise you, every time you are in that gym, if it is just for that one hour, once a week, you’re going to notice a difference if you’re conditioning. Yeah.

And, and most of the conditions, you know, we have the bell, the bars, we have the dumbbells, we have weights and we use, Tulsa Cheerleading, when we’re, when you’re here, but you don’t have to have that stuff in order to condition, use your own body weight. I always tell kids to put their toes underneath the couch, the prison. Right. And then, yeah. And then, uh, uh, use their own weight to, you know, work, work your core or there’s cardio, you know, there’s lots of stuff that you can do that’s going to keep you on top of your game so that whenever you are looking to get that next skill now, now you’re able to take that withdrawal. You’re able to, you’re able to, cause you put the work in for it.

All right? You’re a, if you’re at tryouts, you’re going to have less nerves cause you’ve put in those hours taking the bus. So you’ve gone for the skills. Yep. Even when you’re tired, after being three hours in, you’ve trained yourself to go for skills

and, and believe it or not, you know, whenever it comes to tryouts, your coaches don’t want to just see you throw that skill one time. Uh, and just by chance you happen to land it, they want to see you throw that skill every single day after tryouts. They want to see you working that skill constantly so that they can put it in a routine or, well, so what’s the reason for even being on the team? You know, just to say that you’re on Varsity. No, no, no. You Ha you have a place. You have a spot and you have to fill that spot. And the more you put into yourself, the more you’ll get out of it. Whether it’s starting out with a, with a good warm up routine, making sure that your warm ups are 100%. You’re not taking shortcuts, not, uh, you know, goofing off. You’re focused on what you’re doing right there at that moment. When you’re in class, you’re not allowed to goof off and, and, uh, joke around with your friends when you’re in, in your warmups. That’s the time that your body takes to actually, it’s where we do it for a reason. We’re not just doing it to waste time.

Yeah. That’s what this whole podcast is. The more you put in, the more you put out. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the gym every day. If you’re just goofing off, yeah. You gotta be there training technique. We’re not saying don’t have fun. Tumbling should be fine. You should be having in front. It should be your passion, but you should be every time you are in the gym, you should take advantage of it cause some kids only are, can have that once a week, one hour a week. And those athletes are the ones who should be putting in the most work. Because when you’re here, you should value every minute of that.

When, whenever you’re here, you’re, you’re, you’re kind of working for us, right? We’re telling you what to do. We’re kind of guiding the practice, but you need to be able to take that and apply it to everywhere you go. So if you are at an all star practice and you know you’re tumbling and your coach is saying, all right, if you don’t do this, we’re going to have a six full outs. Or if you don’t do this right, you’re going to end up, uh, we’re going to have conditioning. The, the best way to look at that is, hey, this is, this is bettering me. This is the, this is making me better. This is making me stronger. So that if you, if you look at it that way and you have that more optimistic outlook on life, it’s like the, is the cup half full or half empty?

Always look at it like it’s half full, half full. Then you know, you got, you got more coming in, you got more coming in. You, you don’t have to worry about losing it. Don’t think about, um, don’t think about being a pessimists. Always think about being as optimistic as you can for every situation. Even if you’re in pain and uh, and you’re, you know, holding hand stands for two minutes like that is making you better. Amen. Amen. So just be the best that you can be wherever you are, because you will, you’ll get more out of not just your tumbling career and your cheerleading career. You’ll get more out of life that way.
