Re: Travelling to London, UK (Feb 21-March 2nd) Can I train at your box?

Thanks Scott !

Your infos will be very useful. I hear I'll be close to Old Street (Northern Line) et Moorgate (Circle Line).

So anything close by a metro should be fairly accessible.

Look forward...

Re: Handstand Push Ups-Kipping yay or nay?

Honestly, the only reason why I don't like Kipping in the HSPUs is the fact that I can't kip hehe. I don't think it should be considered cheating, it's just a skill to developp, like the kipping...

Re: Cryotherapy

Guys I agree it does help with soreness. There is no doubt to that.
