“If You Wanna Master Any Calisthenic Skill: You Must Get Obsessed & Practice It Daily in Every session. ”
Yesterday I shared with you a very personal message.
I haven’t shared this with anyone, not even with my close friends. (you can read it here)
It was scary to write but I am glad I shared it. I got some supportive messages from you guys. Thank you, you are awesome!
While writing that message I also made this video showing my journey to get my ring muscle up. You can see it here:
These are training clips from August to September.
In 1 month I was able to get my ring muscle up again and that was from training consistency.
- Everyday I would train muscle up negatives
- Practice false grip
- Do dip pull ups
- Ring dips
- And skin the cat
It was tough and uncomfortable at first.
It still is tough but now I am able to do more than 2 rep in a row.
The biggest thing I’ve learned for mastering any calisthenics skill is that:
You must get obsessed & practice it daily and in every training session.
And if you can’t do the skill yet then you must break it apart & work on each specific portion of the exercise separately like I did with the muscle up.
If you are serious about mastering any bodyweight skill you must do it everywhere.
Find any bar and practice.
Currently I am practicing handstands.
I still can’t hold it for more than a second but every session my posture feels stronger and more aligned.
I’ve been doing:
- Frog stands
- Wall walks
- Wall Handstand holds
- Hollow holds
All these exercises are helping me get the handstand hold and I am doing them while I am at home and before every training session.
Simply if you wanna master a calisthenics skill: Break it apart and practice it everywhere and everyday if possible.
Hope you enjoy the video, that it inspires you and if you have any ring muscle up questions feel to drop any questions.
Attack Life and Get Stronger!
