George Launchbury Posted February 1, 2008 Share Posted February 1, 2008 Hi All,I am new here, and new to gymnastic style training. I guess a little about myself would be appropriate: I am Male, 35 yrs, 6' 2'', 215lbs @ 24% BF. Quite a bit of weight training experience, and reasonable knowledgeable with anatomy and traditional training principles.I have started out with a basic routine 2-4 times per week:> Warm-up> Handstand practice (working toward 0:20 balance)> HSPU (working toward 5x3 bodyweight)> Chin-ups (working toward 5x3 bodyweight on bar)> L-sit (working to 0:30 on rings)> Stretching/Cool-downI often do a little extra pushing/pulling work in horizontal plane using cable machines if I have anything left before cooling down. Once I am up to targets with HSPU and Chin-ups I am planning to start working on Planche and Front-lever progressions as per Coach Sommer's article.I have a few Questions:1. Any feedback on the above would be appreciated2. I am overweight right now, which is coming down steadily. In the interim I was thinking of using wraps to support my wrists a little, but am worried that this will prevent them getting stronger?3. If I use paralettes to practice handstands on, again for my wrists, will the skills acquired carry over into floor handstand to a reasonable degree?Many thanks for reading this, and I hope someone has the free time and inclination to advise.George.
