Crazy Upper Body Strength Video – not for us mere mortals, or is it?

Since I like to post something different on Friday’s, and since Friday’s post was a little more serious than usual – here is a fun video to watch for the weekend. This is some crazy upper body strength. Enjoy!

  1. That is insane but it goes to show you that we shouldn’t put limits on our potential. Great work John on opening our eyes!

  2. Amazing. Seeing people do this reminds me how incredible the human body is.

  3. John-

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    After 25 years of working out, over the past 3 years I’ve moved from traditional bodybuilding/weight lifting routines to full body workouts with kettlebells, club bells, bodyweight, ropes, sled drags, Ashtanga yoga and TRX exercises.

    I also started doing some ring work (holds, muscle ups), yoga holds and am teaching myself to do an unsupported handstand at 43 years old!

    I wonder how or if I can progress to some of these things I see on your site. I’d love to do a handstand pushup, a planche on the rings etc. Not sure where to learn to do this so for now I’ve been practicing a planche on the floor and a headstand with my feet on the wall and gradually trying to reduce the amount of weight my feet support.

    We’ll see what the future holds. I am somewhat amazed at my progress in the past 3 years. I do things today I never even considered possible and actually look, feel and move more athletically than ever before in my life.

    • Hey Steve,

      Thanks for your comment – glad to hear you’ve enjoyed the site. If I were you, I’d take a look at the Gold Medal Bodies programs by Ryan Hurst. He’s got some great handstand stuff, and he may have a tutorial on the planche, too. Keep up the good work!
