The Science of Gymnastics


My copy of The Science of Gymnastics arrived this morning. I’m so excited!

Part 1: Physiology for Gymnastics

Part 2: Bio mechanics for Gymnastics

Part 3: Psychology & Mental Training for Gymnastics

Part 4: Interaction between physiological , biomechanical & psychological aspects of gymnastics performance

The book was edited by Moném Jemni, who is a former international gymnast and coach. He is a Principal lecturer in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Greenwich in the UK. In the dedications, he dedicates the book to Boris Shakhlin who he says was an inspiration to him as a gymnast. Boris, a six time gold Olympic medal winner was the first documented gymnast to perform mental training and mental practice before competition, before each event.

Remember you can order yours too. I ordered mine from Amazon.Co.UK which has an earlier release date than ordering from
