Re: Pullup Progression

I personally don't think weights are necessary. There are really great progressions without weights. For example, pull ups chest to bar, it will be a while before you can do 12 of those....

Re: Behind the Neck Press

Re: Ring Strength 18 Feb

turn out rings at top of bulgarian dip. in support try to always turn out the rings. backwards roll to hang (what you did) is easy, backwards roll to support is much harder.

Re: Broad jump vs. Vertical jump

THis is sort of a silly question, so you got silly answers. Broad jump and vertical jump are basically the same in that you are exploding from a standstill, therefore bounding and sprinting...

Re: Rings Routine for critique...

Id lower the rings as much as possible to get in the press to shoulder stand, it's really important to have a press element in the routine. good job though, your form is great for a non-gymnast.

Re: Please critique my workout plan.

your goals are not only vague and over-broad, but mutually exclusive.
no one here can help you until you fix your goals.

Re: Performance Standards

I don't see you complaining about how much easier EVERYTHING else is for shorter people. Everything weightlifting and everything gymnastics strength is far easier for shorter-limbed people!

Re: Video: Mike Boyle teaches an awkward hang snatch

I feel much more comfortable with the bar on my shoulders, but I don't think it matters that much. One thing is certain though, it's a lot easier to ditch/bail out from a front squat rack position.

Re: Video: Mike Boyle teaches an awkward hang snatch

THe goal isn't always to squat more or to get stronger in some general way. Elite athletes need highly specialized training.

Re: Skill Standards for Building Strong, Useful, Adaptable Athletes

Re: Skill Standards for Building Strong, Useful, Adaptable Athletes

If were talking about standing verticals, Alan Barch Jr. has made a pretty convincing case as the world leader with a 50 inch vertical.
