Gymnast Access Hollywood Interviews

June 13, 2008

Sam is very cute.  I did not know Sam’s coach was from Beijing too.  She likes to listen to rap and loud music sometimes.  When I heard that, I thought it would be great if somebody made a montage of her to that funny little ditty, “White Chicks and Gang Signs“.  

Alicia Sacromone, Shawn Johnson, Paul Hamm and Morgan Hamm also have interviews on there.  It’s interesting how different Paul and Morgan’s voices are.  


Samantha Peszek’s training schedule

April 29, 2008

Sam trains six days a week from 1 pm to “6:30 or 7-ish” according to this article.  The article also says that this routine is required in order to be part of the team in Beijing.  I thought Martha preferred two-a-day workouts.  three hours in the morning and three hours in the afternoon.  Not one six hour block everyday.  I don’t see why she would require a routine that she doesn’t prefer.  I’m not even sure the writer is talking about the number of hours Sam trains.  Shawn Johnson famously trains 25 hours a week.  I’ve heard she has added more hours to work on her flexibility but I doubt it’s 10 or 11 more hours to make it 36.
