    Well the first 2 are upper body strength on bet arm variation that relies more on general strength (definitely more important), side lever is side bending, and lower back strength. planche and front lever begin with anterior core strength and they are different in terms of body positioning but still effective. if you want to choose it's up to you.

    What’s the reason for these? Which one between the planche or front lever?
  5. Alessandro Mainente

    I this case i would go for, at least, rope climbing progression,hollowback press progression, side lever progression, and one between planche and front lever.

    Upper body strength and core stability/strength

    Hey PInny do you have some long terms goals? like upper body strength? or specific skills?

    Hey, I only have limited time for the foundation exercises. What are the first three I should focus on.

    What program should I do?

    Hey George, my best suggestion is posting in the foundations 2 forum a general discussion where you show the form of pullup and dips at least...if they are good then you can begin from a proper level.

    Bent Arm Half Straddle Planche Hold; SE1>IM

    It's definitely not impossible. Search "Bent arm half straddle planche" in the forum and you'll see 99% of the time the coaches will ask for a video of the pseudo planche pushups and planche lean progressions or other previous elements and identify weaknesses or improper form on those causing the bent arm half straddle planche to become a problem. There are plenty of people who have accomplished it. These skills aren't easy. Some people have to spend months on one thing or another just to get it right.

    What program should I do?

    Hey guys! I just joined GB and I'm excited to start! The quiz said, I should start at Foundation 2. The last months, I've been training with rings. I can do: - 10 clean pull ups - 15 dips - 6 Ring dips - ring top position hold for 30-40 seconds - skin the cat - 5 pistol squats. So I've looked into Foundation 2. Should I start with the first progressions? They seem too easy, 3x1 Single Bar Dips for example. On the other hand I've never done a Planche Bounce and I can't do full hanging leg lifts. So parts of the program are too easy and parts are too difficult. Can I start with harder progressions on the Dips and Pullups and start with the first progression with the planche Bounce? Also I would love to continue Ring training and learn handstands. Should I finish F2 and then do R1? If I add Rings One to my schedule, would this be too much? Would love some guidance here. Thank you guys

    Future course development

    Hi Christopher, some courses you have mentioned are already available like one arm handstand, press to handstand (handstand 2 and 3) while the beginning part of crosses and maltese work are introduced in the rings one.

    Future course development

    I am curious as to whether additional courses are being planned or developed at this time. Courses of interest to me would include skills such as iron cross, maltese cross, victorian cross, reverse planche, single arm pulls, single arm handstand, press to handstand, handstand variations, and backbend kickover. I'm still making my way through the foundations courses, but it would be nice to know if there is more to look forward to down the road after I complete those courses.

    Bent Arm Half Straddle Planche Hold; SE1>IM

    Hi Duncan, the bent arm straddle planche and possible solution/progression were already discussed here. Please take a look.

    Bent Arm Half Straddle Planche Hold; SE1>IM

    So annoying that some of the so called progressions are impossible….I’m thinking of the descending leg raise for 10” which comes out of nowhere and is impossible….bent arm half straddle planche is another. Some in between stuff needed to avoid discouragement

    Straps for rings

    Okay. Thanks. I actually already have straps like that to strap surfboards to my car so I will use them.
  18. Alessandro Mainente

    Getting started

    yes, you can also insert the number of reps that you have done....the system will update to the next step if you match the requirements...this is perfect because sometime you cannot hit the requirement at with the first attempt.

    Straps for rings

    Hi Andrew, i have made a simple tool: nylon straps for car. i do not really know what you can search but i'm referring to that https://ar.aliexpress.com/item/32837326145.html in this way you can "choke" the forearm" as you want.

    Ok, so I need to be consistent and log my workouts in order to progress. The system will increase the more I log?

    Straps for rings

    Just beginning rings one. For exercises such as the “strap ring plank” and “strap fly” where there are support straps attached to the wrists/forearms from the rings…. Is there a specific type of strap to use or are they just using the “tails” from the straps that anchor the rings? Is there a demo on the correct way to set up and adjust the strap support for the arms so we can set up properly?

    Getting started

    hey Iaron, welcome aboard, have you tried the beginning test on the GB portal, it can help to assess your general level here. then once you know something more a proper level should be associated with your account into the portal. The portal needs a log that it is updated manually. In order to edit single parameters for example for a starting point in a progression, i suggest you reading mine answers in this post: The faster you get used in the interface the faster you can build up the perfect workout for you...using also my suggestion about what can improve your training session.

    Getting started

    I am about 2 months into the program but I still do not understand how to put a workout together properly and when I should adjust the levels or do they adjust on their own as I log them? I am athletic and can get through. I believe I just need some help structuring what i should start with. I want to improve my flexibility , mobility and strength as well.

    Good Gym in montreal?

    i have been searching for a good gym for a while in Montreal/Laval area. Anyone knows a good gym where i can do this program? if the gym stall bars and parallel bars that would be great

    Parallel bars for sale in Melbourne, Australia

    In the current covid situation, if you can get good equipment, get it. Pbars make a lot of exercises much easier. If you look at the photo, there are feet protruding from the "upper" side. Someone seems to have removed them from the "lower" side. These feet aid in stability of the bars.

    Can't do Korean dips

    Hi Louis, my suggestion if you have the subscription is accessing the private forum section by logging in to the Gb site, then in foundation 2 open a post and insert a video of your execution so that i can the for the errors.

    Can't do Korean dips

    I've been trying to do korean dips for the past 3 months now. I know i have the strenght needed, but i can't even get in the started position without flling forward and if i started from below i can't push my butt above the bar. I think it might be a lack of mobility in my shoulder extension. What do you suggest i do?

    No Equipment for Level 2 & 3

    hey Tanveer, if i'm now wrong we mention what equipment is needed for every course on the sales site. My suggestion is still beginning from level 1 because is still challenging so that you have the time to adjust the equipment....if you find it challenging this is even better because we can fix weaknesses.
