Shoulder prep I use stretch tubing and shoulder dislocates with a bar.

Don't forget your wrist warm-ups!

Re: Journey to a One Arm Handstand: a Rookie Frat's Journey

I wouldn't worry about training head stands for a handstand. For hollow body position you need to get comfortable with knowing what hollow feels like. Do you know of the 'angry cat' position? It's one of the first skills taught to the little ones when starting gymnastics. The angry cat position enga...

Re: Your Background

Ah, I'll have to check you guys out on the old facebook. As for goals, strength is always good although pretty non-specific. I'd like to get a front lever, back lever and planche along with a bunch of other moves. I previously got pretty close to the front and back lever but work got a bit busy and...

Re: Your Background

This place seems like a bit of a ghost town but anyway, Most of you would know my background, I was bitten by a radioactive spider which resulted in super human strength and other abilities. As a result I became a crime fighter, what you don't know is that over the last few years I have gotten far ...

Re: Introduction to strength training

I can see vaguely where you're coming from. I would say the back squat (BSQ) doesn't particularly mimic catching the bar in the first place as the bar is too posterior to the catching position in a clean (regardless if it is a high or low bar BSQ). In regards to the low bar BSQ being very different ...

Post any general tips you have that people can apply to their tumbling. Hopefully we'll get Declan Stacey (recently placed 2nd in Australia on floor) to post some of his advice. 2 tips I can share with you that helped me, and what I know would help a lot of beginners (and maybe some more experienced...

Re: Introduction to strength training

I knew posting here would lure you out Nic :mrgreen: i have come to hate the term functional strength, i mean is it strictly functional for me to snatch 100 kg, do a one arm hs, a planche ect? To clarify, I am using the term ‘functional’ to describe training for practical purposes over aesthetics. O...

Introduction to strength training

I would like to make a brief introduction to the topic of strength training. As an advocate of training that builds FUNCTIONAL strength we cannot ignore the tremendous rewards that can be gained through the practice of strength training. If you are limiting yourself to bodyweight training you are mi...

Re: Fat Loss Tips

What is your diet like? What is your training like? i.e. What does it consist of and how consistent are you? Can you post any pics of your abs and your end-goal-inspired abs? Generally, I would say to minimise the fat and simple carbohydrates in your diet. Increase your cardio and include 2 - 3 ab/l...
