Very cool video

I'm not sure how impressive this is to a real gymnast, but in CrossFit gymnastics terms, this video absolutely blows my mind. The thing that really gets me about it is how easy he makes these moves look, it just appears that he has so much excess strength relative to what is required of these movements. Really cool stuff and it makes me want to work on my gymnastics elements more.

Re: Very cool video

Those muscle ups are insane. He doesn't have any transition. It looks like he just pulls up so hard that he flies right up past the bar into the dip.

That's what happens naturally when you have a really high bodyweight toweighted pullup ratio.
