How do I calculate which week to start at? It was really hard to learn from. This exercise wommer pumped my guns up, especially by sets 4 and 5. I know that in order to maintain a posterior pelvic tilt, you have to squeeze your butt as hard as possible.
Some movements are huge roadblocks and they are common to pretty much all users of the program. This is, by the way, is an interesting response, and only reiterates that you continue to fall prey to a ton of confirmation bias: Foundation, Handstand 1 and 2, Stretch Series self.
handetand Who cares, move on. Create my own routine, re-read the part about working full-time and not having the energy to pause my workouts while I reup on information re: Started doing research online and realized how much mobility and body awareness was involved, and noticed all of my limitations. If I can add to the discussion, I’ve recently rebooted myself and the cristopher follow along has taught me to just make progress, your 73rd, 74th and 75th push up was sloppy or your form broke down near the end of your 5th set of hollow holds?
I had to start from the beginning! Handstand One and Two may be worth your time if you are an absolute beginner, but those somewhat proficient in handstand work will probably be frustrated with the offerings.
In my opinion, Foundation is not a strength program in fact I think that outside some specific things, bodyweight exercises alone suck as a strength program for beginner adults, but that’s a different topic. Knowing muscle fiber composition does not make obviously so a strength training practitioner. It incorporates mobility after every single strength set.
But I have to admit that you are stepping on the chfistopher of both me and many other people in a very casually arrogant way implying that we are the genesis of our lack of progress and not the sub optimal programming. Do we really need to have full 90 degree shoulder width shoulder extension before ever attempting a handstand?
I contacted the GB website with the same question and got no response. This is the one program I’d recommend.
Hi Ben, No, I did not do the courses. The GST stuff has given me progressions to work towards, which I do really enjoy. Haha, Kateryna, unfortunately not, but I can tell you all the training material is out there on the internet. Thanks for your concern though!
I have not given myself a form check so that is probably why it seems easier than it really is. What equipment will I need for F1 — will I basically need a gymnastics gym?
Brian, yes it would christopyer as a complete upper body workout, depending on you chosing the right dosage for your ability level. All too often, the magazine culture of today offers empty promises; packing on muscle in record time, or becoming the Hulk overnight.
The breaks are not too long, and it goes from warmup all the way to long held stretches. Hi Premo, thanks for your comment. Sommer, having trained children and excelled at that, come to train adults with the same although watered down protocols that he uses with his old students but adults simply cannot learn as fast and as much as children can.
Ok, the key here is that you have told me you have poor mobility. What has helped me with them has been Kit’s Master the Pancake series I think it handstsnd about dollars on Vimeo and straddle leg lifts. I would love to hear somebody that had success and steady progress with Foundation and moving beyond F1 to get a different point of view. I want the best of both worlds. It’s a good thing to work on to me it’s key to easy strict ring muscle ups but it shouldn’t impede your handstand progress as it’s not related at all.
Get yourself a decent pair of wooden gymnastic rings.
