Build a Gymnastics Springboard
A good gymnastics springboard will cost you at least $ 500 USD, but you can build one yourself, which is a lot cheaper. Of course I can't take any responsibility for using this springboard blueprint. So if your self-made springboard shoots you to the moon, not my fault :) I've been to a couple of gymnastics gyms in South America and Asia, where they had self-made springboards just like this one, and I've never had a problem with them. In this lesson I will show you how to build a wooden gymnastics springboard with 6 metal springs. You can also build the same springboard with a metal-frame. 100% wooden springboards are a bit harder to build. Instead of metal springs, you can also use elastic rubber blocks . That's a very good solution if you don't want your springboard to be that bouncy => Ideal for wushu training. Also check out our gymnastics instructions at gymnastics main.
