One Arm Handstand Work – 7-2-12

Rough clips of some decent holds tonight. I’ve been filming from the side more frequently, as it is a LOT more informative for the handstand. DO IT. Still not where I want it to be, but still happy with the overall progress this year.

One Arm Handstand Work – Start of May 2012

Men’s Health Magazine “How Fit Are You?” Contest

My submissions and eventual winners for Men’s Health Magazine “How Fit Are You?” Contest in 2007. First video shows clapping HSPU, one arm chin-up, and more. Second video, with its 4:30 am shoot time, is decidedly rougher, but I really like the press at the beginning. To answer the inevitable

Assisted One Arm Handstand Pushup

In 1954, Roger Bannister was the first man to run a sub-4-minute mile. Within 3 years, 16 other runners had also. The psychological barrier had been broken. The one arm handstand pushup holds a similar mystique. While some say it is impossible, others are busy training for it. I’ve been

60 lb rope climb

Here’s an old video from “the vault”. A 60 lb weighted rope climb from May 2006. I started working this exercise as a potential progression to the one arm rope climb but found it far too stressful on my elbows in the long run. Still fun to do though.
