The Al Fong Spotting Block Wedge is a specially designed mat that helps athletes to learn important basic shapes efficiently. This mat measures 72-inches high x 41-inches x 22 inches wide and can be positioned to use the three different wedge angles interchangeably for various learning progressions.
The Al Fong Wedge is made of dense foam covered with heavy-grade, easy-to-clean vinyl. Sturdy handles allow for the wedge to be moved easily. Used in pairs, the Al Fong Wedge can be placed on top of the Al Fong Spotting Blocks to teach a myriad of skill progressions from beginner to advanced. An athlete can instantly “see” when their feet land higher and higher on the mat as they are working toward a cast or clear hip to handstand.
Placed on the floor, the Wedge is a nice ramp that makes it easier to climb up to a tall station on bars. Athletes can experience each phase of a giant swing using the Wedge in various positions from floor bar work to breaking down the beginning of down swings on low bar.
The Al Fong Wedge supports the athlete through the process and will help create independent confident learners by offering immediate feedback on performance. Be sure to check out the product video for more ideas on how to use the Al Fong Spotting Block Wedge!
