WOW CF Community. Where is all the backlash for this video? Isn't this non functional, Non-"FUN" and extremely dangerous? I mean at any moment his arms could fail him and he could fall on his head and break his neck. Or what if he lost his balance, fell down and the sled were to run him over resulting in serious injury or even DEATH? Or what if someone out there decided to try this and gets hurt doing it, then I get sued, lose all my worldly possessions, my family disowns me and then I have no choice but to live on the streets alone for all of eternity?

Where's the "FUN" in that? :weight_l:

Because it is not really dangerous, just pointless?

I think there are less responses because people are tired of you. I think we can all agree that your son is strong and you like living though him, but you're just really annoying and ruining this forum.

Must you really pick/poke at this? If you're going to be a member of the community, why try to stir up trouble?

Well, I don't know that mocking/teasing the forum members is the best way to accomplish that. Seems unwise to me.

But this is different. My snarky answers are pretty much always targeted at individuals, and nearly always when they have said something goofy, been a jerk (e.g. trolls), or (more often than not) been too lazy to look something up for themselves.

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.

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.

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.

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.
