Diana Winter, a senior kinesiology major, is a member of the club gymnastics team at the University of Maryland. She walks in a handstand as part of the team's warmup exercises at a practice on Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014.
Winter poses for a photo while putting chalk on her grips before her bar workout. The combination of chalk and water on the leather grips helps her reduce friction on her hands during her routine.
Winter hits a pose just before her dismount during her beam routine. "Beam is my favorite because it's probably my best event," Winter said.
Winter holds her chin above the bar in a piked position during part of the team's group conditioning regimen. The exercise targets and strengthens muscles in her arms and stomach.
Winter stretches at the end of practice to cool her muscles down. "I'm getting old, so if I don't stretch at the end, I feel it in the morning," Winter said.
