Favorite Gym Blogs

this picture has no relation to the contents of this post
So, eight months after I first got back into gymnastics, eight months after lurking on every gym blog on the planet, I'm finally getting off my behind long enough to start writing my own. I thought it would be fitting to make my first post a compilation of some of my favorite gymblogs.












First, a special shoutout to http://beautifulgymnastics.blogspot.ie/. This blog started my obsession, as the stories of the gymnasts behind the London Olympics fascinated me. I've been following this blog since its very beginning, checking like three times a day.

Next, The Couch Gymnast is great for a more 'reporter' style of blog, with interviews, profiles, and more. My favorite part is the Leotard Fashion Police. Note, there are more posts, including ones from the London Olympics, that haven't been updated to this page yet.

For long discussions spanning everything gymnastics, and a lot more, I go to GymTruthTeller. There are threads with like three hundred posts on 2012 Olympic Trials, London, and more. Of course, the snark there is delicious

Another of my favorite gymnastics blogs is Stoi, I have read literally every one of the posts on this blog. I reread this blog every morning while eating breakfast. It's that good.

I love the Quick Hits by Blythe Lawrence at Gymnastics Examiner, especially good during major competitions.

Although The E Panel hasn't been update in awhile, there is still major quality posts there (yes, I have read every single one)

And finally, Blossom, Chinese Gymnastics Flowers is great for lovely gifs, pictures and more

  1. Thanks Annie! I absolutely LOVE E Panel in particular, I learned so much from his posts. I hope he gets back to blogging at some stage. One daily blog I check is gymnasticscoaching.com, Rick has such an unbelievable knowledge of technicalities of the sport and he brings together a great mishmash of stuff from all types of gymmnastics.
