Clinical Pilates is a unique complimentary training tool for gymnasts. Numerous studies have found substantial improvements in gymnasts who incorporated a reformer and mat Pilates program into their weekly training schedule.
A study performed by Hutchinson et al., found the leaping ability of rhythmic gymnasts improved remarkably following controlled reformer exercises on jump training. The reformer group showed improvements in jump height, floor reaction time and explosive power, which were maintained at 4 months and 1 year. The control (non-reformer) group showed no significant changes in any of the above.
