i've been doing a combination of starting strength and some gymnastics for the past half year. i've had to balance it with a very physical job, so i've erred on the side of undertraining rather than overtraining.
the first number is my previous capability, the second my current capability.
HSPU on floor: 0__6
Freestanding handstand on parallettes: 0__10 seconds
Straddle front lever on rings: 0__5-6 seconds
V-sit on parallettes: 0__3-4 seconds
Tuck planche pushups on parallettes: no tuck planche__3
back squat: 160lbs__185 (beltless, in lifting shoes, a2a, low-bar rack)
deadlift: 210lbs__235 (beltless, shoeless)
unfortunately, my muscular endurance has suffered badly...but my 400m run time went from 1:11 to 1:04, strangely, with no running practice. i think it was all that squatting.
i also took a break from climbing during the winter. i started again 2-3 months ago, and now i climb a full grade harder than i did before i stopped. that, i'm not sure what to attribute to.

i did gymnastics strength training twice a week for a little over 2 months, and then climbed on the weekends (dunno if that helped).
workout A would be the parallette training guide i pulled off americangymnast.com, and i modified it. it went something like this:
3-5 sets 10 sec L-sit
1-2 sets 10 sec V-sit (these are still hard for me)
5x10 sec tuck planches
2x30 sec handstand hold against wall
2x5 HSPU on floor, against wall
workout B would be on ring work, so some sets of dips and skin the cats would be involved. dips (especially on rings) obviously have a lot of carryover to the tuck planche PUs.
still no back lever, though...i keep reading that your lats are involved, but i can't figure it out yet.
