Whitney is in the gym! The uneven bars take a lot of strength, skill, courage, and practice. Here Whitney works on her upper body strength by using only her arms on the men’s parallel bars. Then it’s on to the uneven bars to practice some release moves and stalders. Whitney’s coach chose the Gienger for Whitney’s release move. Practice makes perfect, and this time Whitney managed to catch two Giengers! Working hard to get better every day.
