The purpose of the paper is the processing and the theoretical and experimental argumentation of the macro-methods to learn the exercises of women’s artistic gymnastics in the basic specialization stage. This scientific approach led to the organization of a pedagogical experiment with a group of 14 gymnasts of 12 to 15 years old, members of the junior team of Romania from the Olympic Training Center in Izvorani.

The following methods were used throughout this research: method of bibliographic study; method of pedagogical observation; method of pedagogical experiment; method of tests; method of experts; video computerized method of biomechanical analysis and the statistical-mathematical method. The theoretical and experimental argumentation of the component elements of the macro-methods for learning the exercises of women’s artistic gymnastics during the basic specialization stage can serve as a methodical guide for coaches – teachers specialized in women’s artistic gymnastics.
