Re: Gymnastics CF hybrid?

Nice on the press Alexander. Get us a vid.

I agree with the 2 hours of practice though... it's very hard to accomplish much in a small amount of time unless you're extremely well conditioned that you have the endurance to take a turn every minute or two. Even with an hour you usually only get like 15-30 turns at most on an apparatus practicing so you have to make everything count. I think it's best you prioritize what you want to learn because there is significant overlap from at least apparatus to apparatus regarding basic swings and such.

As for working out... depends on what kind of hybrid you're doing. Heavy lifting + gymnastics probably won't work well unless you're extremely well conditioned. CF + gymnastics based strength work is effective. Gymnastics based strength + gymnastics metcons work extremely well.
