Hi guys! In your opinion, what would be the major differences between proposed "street workout" (calisthenics in public facilities) vs traditional gymnastics training? I myself considered gymnastics as an end goal in itself, whereas street workout really is just preparing the body for whatever it goes through in daily life (which gymnastics itself also does). I used to think that the quality of work in the street workout was far behind gymnastics, but in a short time frame they've quickly developed and maybe the average strength of street workout proponents exceeds even elite level gymnasts. I say this because I have seen some techniques recently that blew my mind, such as: Reverse Planche (skip to 0:37): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bfug6Y7MKE0&feature=share One Armed Muscle-Up (first 10 seconds): http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=vFASzKBoJ7I Close to Impossible (CTI) (second closest attempt after Jasper Benincasa's original): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ir4WMCp1vuA These are all techniques which I've never seen even elite level gymnasts perform. I understand that the CTI probably doesn't have a place in any of the current men's events, maybe even the OAMU, but Reverse Planche should've been achieved by them!!!
