Inclines / Wedge mats / “Cheese” mats
Our incline mat is the most functional and versatile Progressive Skill Builders for your gymnastics program. They’re meant for gymnasts practicing rolls, log rolls, and walkovers. Our mats come with inclines at multiple heights. Used from Mommy and Me classes, to Rec, to the Elite athletes training for international competition. Incline mats are also used on virtually every event. Uphill vaulting, transition training on bars, basic tumbling on floor, and conditioning are only a few of their uses. Please visit the Mancino Training Ideas tab for more examples of how coaches use these essential pieces as training aids in their gyms.

What is your most creative non-preschool use for a Mancino 24″ x 48″ Incline?

“KnockDown!” Stand it vertically and athletes (from standing, power hurdle or run) kick to handstand trying to knock it over and land on it “flat back”; working on heel drive and shoulder block for front handsprings. You can stand it up infront of the pit for a fun, softer landing. Many athletes learn how to drive the first leg but then struggle snapping the leg together at the top of the shoulder block, this drill forces them to drive with both legs. Once this drill is mastered then lay the incline flat and (from a stand, power hurdle or run) place hands on floor infront of incline as they drive legs together and block to flatback. You can use the same concept for vault and stand the incline up on a resi for your beginne handspring flat backs to help focus on heel drive instead of “rolling” through the skill. Then once that skill has been mastered then lay it flat and hands hit in front of incline to block and land flat back on it. As always spot your athletes for safety and body poisiton correction.

We turn ours into a body slide! We fold a parachute on top of the cheese mat and the kids run and slide down on their stomachs. It’s loads of fun and they always have big smiles on their faces and beg to get more turns!
4) Melanie C. from Apex Gymnastics, Leesburg, VA
We put our Mancino incline with the low ends facing each other – using two, to do hyper splits with the gymnasts body in the center and one leg going up the incline in the front and back. Also, laying on your stomach and then pushing up to a hollow plank or on your back and pushing up to an arch position…
5) Doug N. from Apex Gymnastics, Leesburg, VA
We use it for our special needs kids – they use it to roll balls down to do a bowling game. They don’t have the motor control to throw a ball “bowling style” but they can aim and push it down the incline into the pins set up at the bottom of the incline
6) Terry P. of Aspire Kids Sports Center, Chandler, AZ
I use it for teaching bails on P-Bars. I set the mat standing upright on the outside of the poles on one end of the P-Bars. The gymnast then gets into a front support on the ends of the bars and pushes off the mat, swinging to horizontal, then extends away from the mat and bails to a crash into the mat. The boys love it.
7) Brian C. of Leaps-N-Bounders Gymnastics, Trevose, PA
With the high end of the incline placed flush with the end of a low beam, have the student practice back handsprings. The student stands on the end of the beam and does back handsprings traveling down incline. This is great to get student to practice jumping off the beam into a skill. This is also a great way to begin working on connecting two skills… having student do first skill completely ON the beam (handstand, back walkover, etc.), landing at the end and pushing immediately into the next skill traveling down the incline.
8) Rick B. of Mountain West Gymnastics, Boise, ID
We use ours for a training drill for Yurchencko vault by placing it between the vault and porta pit landing. The gymnast must block off the table and clear the incline with the right body shape. The goal is not to touch the incline mat.
9) Jennifer P. of Giant Gymnastics, Inc, Hackettstown, NJ
We play a game with the kids where they throw out as many pit blocks onto the floor as they can and then they have to “scoop” the blocks back into the pit using the incline!

This is a bail to handstand drill. The mat gives them a visual cue as to where their toes should go, as well as teaching them with instant feedback if they released too soon.
