I seriously doubt that I have ever just openly taken a shot at the forum membership/community as a whole, as Jeremy has done here. That's just not me.

Re: Handstand Sled Pull with 95lbs. (Just for Fun!)

I guess I just don't see it as a shot. It sounds to me like he's saying "lighten up". Which after 5 years of watching this forum seems like good advice.

Where's the "FUN" in that?
This is completely out of line. This comes across as, you're trying to back people into a corner that criticized the other video, make them lay out some set of specific rules, why one activity was considered dangerous, pointless, whatever....why this video is different, what "rules" are different. It's confrontational. The point of the post seems to be, to start a confrontation. That's quite different from saying something controversial, articulating an opinion that starts a confrontation. As someone said, you're goading someone into a fight. Maybe it was meant to be sorta playful, but given the intensity of the opinions in the other thread, it's poorly timed, at the least.

you think? I think it shows a lot of strength/balance and can see the benefit.

edit: on further thought, it's probably easier to stay up right while having the weight counter your balance lol.

Re: Handstand Sled Pull with 95lbs. (Just for Fun!)

We did Amanda this morning, I had to scale to doing ring dips, but it was fun.

Didn't take a video of it.

Doing Grace tomorrow for Barbells For Boobs.

Gonna be fun, not gonna video it.

I'm pretty much through with my 'hey everybody, look at me days', I work out for me.

That's what I was thinking. I think even I could do a handstand if I had a counterbalance - and I am almost literally the worst at handstands!

Hey, wait! This might be a good way for you to work on your handstand walk progressions, Mike.

No. You keep refusing to tag your stuff as WHETHER WORK AND FAMILY SAFE no matter HOW many times you are corrected.
