Back from Vegas, back to work!

Got back from Vegas Monday, had a great time and even learned a few things.  Its always good to get together with a bunch of people who are all trying to do the same thing you are, that way you can talk to them and find out whats working and whats not. 

Now to the good stuff!  I just got a new camera for my birthday, i got the Kodak Playsport, its a lot like the Flip but actually is waterproof!  My birthday is not until the first of December but I know you guys have been getting restless wondering where the new videos are at.  So i took some at practice today of some vaults and also at gymnastics. This first one is my last drill of the day, 4 lefts, 13'2" grip, working on hitting the takeoff with a solid body. 

These Windshield Wipers are just a taste of the core we do at gymnastics, hanging here from parallel bar, keep your arms straight, lift your feet to your hands and go back and forth trying to go as far as you can on each side.

So heres the challenge. Try this at home, you can use a high bar, squat rack, or just about anything you can hang from. See how far you can go from side to side and how many you can do without letting your feet come away from your feet. Post the video on youtube,facebook or where ever, comment on this post with the link, and i will choose the winner. And who knows maybe along the line there will be prizes!

Always Pursuing -Mark-
