Anyone else here love freerunning and flips and handstands ect? I was a gymnast for 11 years and now transitioned to another sport but i still love parkour!

I recently switched to gymnastics training for strength instead of weightlifting. Currently working on a planche. Practiced the handstand for about a month last year w/ my friend but gave up on that one... afraid of getting injured from practicing it >_>

Can/could you do front levers or planches or anything like that?

Due to a spinal condition, I can't over-exert myself with sports like this as I can easily pull my back, which is also sadly why exercise in general is difficult for me, topped with once my heart rate hits 180 I struggle to breathe.

Still, I enjoy watching it and giving it a go when it's nothing too major.

yeah I can do a straddle planche on the floor and the rings, a great way to get a handstand is against a wall! :)

Yeah its spectacular to watch! just work up litle by little even if its many reps with very low weight, that will more than a few reps of something with really heavy weight! :)

What did you do to work your way up to the straddle planche? Just the standard progression of: frogstand -> tuck planche -> straddle?

yep, at least thats how they taught us in gymnastics, we also did handstands on p-bars and had a teammate spot us on lowering down to a planche then back up again; we did this like 10 times per set.

That'd be funny if, during that routine, every gymnast in the background is performing amazing record-breaking feats of strength and athleticism. And jumping through rings of fire and juggling scimitars and stuff.
