Started a few months ago, got hurt in 1st week - where can I go for a 'Starters FAQ'?
Leon Connelly posted a topic in Getting StartedHey all, I started a few months back and really hurt my shoulder doing crab walk. I am chomping at the bit to get back to it, but I really don't want to screw up again. Where can beginners go to get all the download on what to do, not to do, how to approach, etc.? Thanks!
I need to take a serious training path, need advice.
JoaquinGonzalez posted a topic in Getting StartedHi community, I'll introduce myself because I'm looking for some specifig advice . Im from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm 24 and been training movement for some years. I have hipermobility in my shoulders and cervical problems since I was very young. Now, happily, thanks to hard work and been kind of an autodidact-research-nerd, I got stable and pretty strong shoulders but a little imbalance in the one that has sufered a complete dislocation (right one). My back is strong too. So gymnastics are a big challenge for me...but I have no rush. I enjoy been a newbie in everything I do. Now I'm geting the free standing handstand slowly, I can also hold a straddle BL and a tucked FL, and discovered that I couldn't do a ring muscle up because of my poor technique training, with no coaching...but I'm getting there too. I've got good overall body control because since I started moving seriously I did a lot of things and learned from different disciplines and people, and I aim to be a well-rounded mover. Since I focused a lot on movement the past years, I need to improve my strenght. I'm in a place where I've learned to control my body and incorporated a lot of theory to be able to progress alone. So the point is, been my own coach is probably not the best choice but the only I can actually afford. Here in Argentina buying anything in dolar price is a pain in the ass and I can't really afford the onlie coaching programs as I'd really like to do. In mid-terms I'd like to be able to hold a freestanding HS for 20-30secs, doing a clean B&F Lever, keep progressing in general body control, and for example, install a ring setup at home and knowing what to do with it (muscle ups in short term) What's your advice? Is there any free program (or some pretty cheap one to start with) that I can follow? I never used weights, do you recomend getting into a weighted program (at least 1 or 2 times a week) to gain more strenght? Or I should stick to bodyweight training as I been doing? Thanks a lot if you read/answer, time is priceless . Good training you all.
Eric Baum posted a topic in Getting StartedHello everyone, I've been following this forum and doing the F1 + H1 training for a while now and I think that now is the time to introduce myself. IÂ´m a brazilian, 24 yrs old eletrical engineer. I was introduced to gymnastics only when I was 20 at my university and since then I've been trying a bit of everything regarding gymnastics and circus. I've started with acrobatic gymnastic classes, but I also did trampoline classes, some basic classes on gymnastics floor habilities and things like that. Also did classes on trapeze and some other aerial circus stuff. Actually i'm part of a great Gymnastics for All group, that is really awesome to be part of but that dont demand great physical habilities. That is why I decided to train by myself and focus my habilities mainly on the ones like what is developed here at the gymnastic bodies courses, because in the end that is what I liked the most amongst all that IÂ´ve already tried. In the next few days I want to post some videos on the exercises that I consider mastered, to get some feedback and make sure my self-evaluation was correct. Best Regards, Baum
