    because strength is neurological and you have never done this movement before

      how would all compounds not prepare me for a single calisthenic rep
      i don't understand
      how the fuck do i do them if i can't do even a single rep of them even with prior compounds under my belt?

        compounds while good are somewhat memed and overhyped when it comes to building translatable strength and athleticism

        Your numbers are like high tier beginner numbers at best so you're overstating how much strength you have to transfer to a movement you've never done before.

      I am also sexually attracted to the way she has her makeup on and that is why I have images of her.

      Powerfatting is the least transferable “sport” ever created. You failed because you’re not strong.

      What the absolute fuck? I'm not strong? I fucking must not be, so all the years I spent doing what I thought were 'Greek' compounds thinking I would be Adonis maybe SOMEDAY are nothing, then? What the fuck do I do? I can't even get started on the calisthenics because I can't perform them for even a rep.

        truth is there is no perfect movement or set of movements that will adequately prepare you for any other movement at a high level, especially from powershitting to calisthenics, its just a different type of strength. practice similar positions and start with easier calisthenics movements if you are determined to reach mastery of this

            Lamar Grant was 5'2 but was still hitting good numbers even if they weren't super great when compared to taller heavier people.

        remember when you were making noob gains and adding 5lbs every session. Most of that wasnt even strength gains, just getting better at the movement. Same with calisthenics, the movement patterns tend to be more technical too, just give it some practice

        Stabiliser muscles tend to adapt pretty quick

          I will take this advice and try to listen to the position that my body sings best in, then.

      It makes me feel insecure and hate myself trying to do this and feeling vertigo and out of position for it. I don't know how the author of the book I got this shit from, 'Convict Conditioning' does this on a daily basis.

      Lamar Grant was 5'2 but was still hitting good numbers even if they weren't super great when compared to taller heavier people.

      Unfortunately I'm not Lamar Grant, I come from bad genetic stock already as evidenced by my deficiencies leading me to only grow to 5'0 even, I've always plateaued and no supplementaries to compounds have gotten me higher than I have done at my current PRs. I am basically a walking toddler to other people. I am 32 years old. I don't have any friends, never had a girlfriend and will die alone. lol.

    I squat 280, Deadlift 315, bench like 165 and can hardly OHP more than 110 lbs and I just tried the Straight Bridge and the Head Bridge and was able to do both.
    The external rotation of the Straight Bridge was hard though and the Head Bridge hurt my shoulder (recently injured)
