Transition to complex gymnastic exercises
Jun 22, 2018
Your child has already started to perform this program, and now it's time to move on to more complex gymnastic exercises. Of course, in addition to the exercises listed below, there are many others, so you can safely add them at your own discretion, taking into account the interests and desire of the child.
About some exercises that serve both for the development of mobility, and for the development of the vestibular apparatus, we have already told. Start with the exercises that most like you, as well as your little athlete.
Choose from the list of those 10 exercises from which you would like to start. Do each of them at least once a day.
First, your task is to help your child learn how to perform these exercises on their own. After that, encourage him to improve in speed and agility in doing these exercises, of course, while not neglecting safety and pleasure.
Perform each of the 10 selected exercises for at least one minute. The total daily duration is 10 minutes.
Remember that increasing the intensity of the exercise is necessary for the development of the vestibular apparatus. The faster this or that exercise is performed, the faster the vestibular apparatus adapts to gravity and the position of the body in space. In turn, this process of adaptation promotes the accelerated development of those brain functions that are responsible for the equilibrium and orientation in space.

When the formation of the vestibular apparatus of the brain will be completed and your childto succeed in all exercises of active balance of the program, it can be improved in a variety of exercises that require the ability to maintain balance. There are no restrictions in this case.
Doman believes that for active development of the brain, gymnastics and ballet are preferable, since movements in these sports and arts are superbly stimulated by the vestibular apparatus. However, you can choose figure skating, jumping, surfing, skating, skiing, pole vaulting, judo or aikido - in other words, whatever you want, because your child is already fully prepared for any kind of physical activity.
Activity 1. Rolling on the side and flipping forward
Your child already knows how to do it. Now your task is simply to encourage him to do it faster and as many times as possible. Adhere to the same frequency as previously adhered to, giving these exercises 4 lessons per day.
Extend the distance. For example, if at first the child rolls without stopping 5 meters, then after a while let it roll 10-15-25 meters.
The same goes for somersaults ahead. Let your baby somersault more and more. Your goal - to ensure that the distance, "passable" with the help of somersaults, too, was 25 meters.
Gradually the child will learn to land after a somersault. And this is the beginning of acrobatics. You can contribute to his success, giving him the opportunity to tumble on a small slope. For each of these exercises, 5 minutes a day is enough.
Exercise 2. Walking on a bar
For best results, Doman advises you to break this exercise into two stages.
• Step 1. When the child learns to walk along the entire length of the bar himself, start teaching him to walk on this beam backwards. For starters, he can look back, but gradually teach him to do without it.
• Step 2. When the child learns to walk confidently along the beam both forward face and back, you can start to gradually increase the height of the bar. But do not overdo it: a height of 30 cm is enough.
As your child progresses, gradually increase the number of passes along the entire length of the bar to 25 times a day.
The intensity of this type of exercise depends on how fast the child can walk forward with the face and back, and also from the height of the bar.
The exercise is performed during the time that the child needs for one walk through the bar. The minimum daily time is 5 minutes.
Exercise 3. Roll Backwards After your child succeeds in somersaults, begin teaching him to tumble backwards. Help him to do this on different surfaces - on mats, carpet, grass.
As in the case of somersaults forward, you can first use a sloping slope. Teach your child to hold his hands properly: first he must rest his hands on the ground, and at the moment of the somersault, lightly touch the fingers of his own shoulders.
The frequency of the first exercise is at least 10 times a day. In time it will take no more than 5 minutes.
The goal is to teach you how to tumble without stopping for a distance of 25 meters.
Exercise 4. The
hamstring As already mentioned, the best athletic projectile for a baby is the hands of the parents. Before the child learns the gymnastic rings, you can perform somersaults from the visas with the help of your hands.
1. Face the child. Let him grasp the thumbs of your hands. To secure, grab his wrists. Pull the child up so that he can wrap his legs around your waist.
2. Slightly tilting the baby to the floor, hedge it with his knee. The child will descend lower and lower until his thighs are above his head. At that moment, somersaults will occur. Your task is to hold the child's hands tight to prevent the fall of the young gymnast.
Exercise 5. Raising U PRYZHKI Children like to climb and descend on ordinary stairs, ropes and ropes with knots. What do you think about
about climbing trees? Climbing to various objects, climbing through them, descending downwards perfectly develop the vestibular apparatus. This is also promoted by jumping over obstacles, jumps in length, jumping down.
The child is almost impossible to withhold from these activities, so you will act wisely if you teach him to do it in a safe way. Provide him with the most suitable safe environment and watch him constantly.
The total daily duration of such exercises is from 5 minutes.
Exercise 6. Swing the press
This exercise does not directly stimulate the development of the vestibular apparatus, but it helps to strengthen the muscles of the hands and abdomen. Without the latter it is impossible to achieve the correct performance of the exercises of an active equilibrium program.
Stand behind the child. Let him grasp the thumbs of your hands. To secure, grab his wrists. Pull the child up so that your arms are completely bent at the elbows. The child should raise his straightened legs several times so that they are parallel to the floor.
When the child's hands are much stronger, the same exercise can be performed on a Swedish wall or a horizontal bar.
So, it's time to take stock. What should be done for the early physical development of the child, according to Doman?
• From the first days of a child's life, develop his motor intellect, the vestibular apparatus.
• With 2-3 weeks begin to temper the baby and teach him swimming. Begin with 3-4 weeks of massage, and from 1.5-2 months - gymnastics. Do not forget to coordinate your actions with your doctor.
• When the baby learns to sit well, start teaching him to catch and throw a big ball. First the child will press it to the stomach, then learn how to catch with two palms. After that, you can throw the ball not directly into the hands, but slightly to the side or slightly higher.
• When the child learns to throw a ball well, teach him to hit the ball at the target.
• After 6 months, start teaching the child the elements of acrobatics. Start by performing somersaults. As the experience of the Doman Institute has shown, children can successfully master such exercises at an early age.
Warning! Before you start swimming, get permission from a doctor. In many children's polyclinics, there are instructors in the teaching of swimming for babies. Ask for help or advice to a specialist with whom it is advisable to conduct the first classes.
• As soon as the kid learns to walk well, teach him to hit the ball on the floor.
• Teach your feet to kick the ball.
• Train your child in volleyball, basketball, football, badminton, big and table tennis. In addition, almost any sport is useful for the development of your baby( of course, if there is no contra-indication on the part of health).
• Before you train a child with any technical device or movement, first try to learn them yourself, so as not to teach the child to knowingly perform incorrectly. It is much harder to retrain!
• Do all exercises in a game form.
• Watch what sports games your child likes more than others. They continue to pay more attention and time.
• From the very birth of the child, get different balls: the smallest so that the baby can clamp it in the palm;medium size, to grasp his fingers;and a large size - in order to take and throw with both hands.
The first child's ball should be soft( for example, from foam rubber), so that he can squeeze it with his fingers. Squeezing the ball with your fingers is a very useful exercise for both tactile stimulation and speech development. Other balls should be light and elastic.
