Fifty of these subjects underwent re-testing one week later in order to assess test-retest reliability. Construct validity was assessed using a simple regression analysis between total GFMT scores and the gymnasts' competition level to calculate the coefficient of determination r2. The results of this study provide initial support for the construct validity and test-retest reliability of the GFMT.
Speed, 1 — 4 strength, 2356 endurance, 5 agility, 7 flexibility, 38 — 12 balance, 213 and power 814 — 16 are all physical abilities that play a role in the success of a competitive gymnast.
A gymnast's physical abilities may also be related to the ability to sustain injury free participation in the sport. Traditionally, field-testing has been done in a variety of sports in an effort to measure sport-specific physical abilities.
Field-tests have been developed in an attempt to quantify each of those physical abilities. Within the United States Association of Gymnastics USAGa system of competitive levels ranging from a low of 4 to a high of 10 is used to rank the skills and abilities of individual gymnasts.
To move from one competitive level to the next, a gymnast must achieve a specific all-around score and be able to perform specific skills that increase in difficulty as the competitive level increases.
Individual tests for flexibility, strength, endurance, and power have been suggested as useful tools to gauge gymnastic potential. The TOPs was thus not designed to address the needs of gymnasts of all ages or those who compete through high school or collegiate programs.
While specialized training is needed to administer the TOPs and the number of people deemed qualified to administer the test is limited, the reliability and validity of the TOPs test have not been reported. Currently there is not a reliable and valid measurement tool to evaluate the specific physical fitness abilities needed for successful competition in either men's or women's gymnastics.2011 USAG Illinois State Level 4 Gymnastics Meet - Nina - 4th Place Floor
Previous studies have examined possible correlations between a gymnast's level of competition or intensity of training and various singular physical fitness traits. The gymnasts at the highest level of training were reported to be the most flexible, had a slender body type, weighed less, and demonstrated higher amounts of both functional and absolute strength especially in the upper body. InFaria et al 41 examined the relationship between anthropometric and physical characteristics of male gymnasts and overall competitive performance success.
Level 10 gymnasts around the country are training hard in preparation for the upcoming Regional Championships. Regionals is always a stressful meet as only the top seven all around finishers in each age group will advance to the JO National Championships!

One mistake, and your season could be over! Before the gymnasts take off for Regionals, here's a look at some of the favorites for Regional and National titles, based on their highest all around scores posted at meets this season.
Keep in mind that scores around the nation tend to fluctuate, but if a gymnast can score over 38 in the all around, she's looking good for JO Nationals. Haley Scaman of Illinois is tied with Lee for the top all around score in the nation this season.

In fact, many gymnasts would even argue the mental preparation is more difficult than physical training, since it can be more difficult to control. A gymnast may be able to perfectly execute her routines in practice, but if she is not mentally ready to face the crowd, judges and her own nerves, she will not perform to the best of her ability.
