Some Outrageous Moves!

Just awesome

WFS to look at, but probably not if you try this at home.

Anyone try the touch touch L sit pull up at 36 secs in?

Re: Some Outrageous Moves!

How much more fun would life be on a daily basis if you could flip and jump around like that?

touch toes L-sit pullup isn't that hard if you have decent hamstring flexibility, and you can pull fairly powerfully (you can kip this as well)

If you have the ham flexiblity it's probably about the same difficulty as behidn the back clapping pullups.

Almost positive it's easier than L-slap thighs. But I'll check it this week or next.

Sorry, my OP should have said "Anyone except Steven Low try the toe touch L pull ups?" ;-)
