Re: [IPp] Gymnastics leotards



I never thought about keeping the pump under the arm during exercise.  What
a great idea.

Subject:    [IPp] Gymnastics leotards


Jenna is on a gymnastics team, and practices are 3.5-4 hours at a time, so
disconnecting was not a very good option for her.  Plus, she's one of those
kids whose sugars rise during exercise due to adrenaline, then crash after
exercise.  The pockets are on the inside of the leotard, and are positioned
just under the arm on the side of the leotard.  That way, her pump does not
hit the uneven bar, nor does it interfer with skills that involve lying on
her back, such as on beam and floor.  It's worked well for her.
