    You manipulate levers so it becomes easier or harder depending on what level you're at. Also isolation work for the muscles that are being targeted works great here with almost no room to frick up

      My gym doesn't have anywhere to do levers so I do a lot of straight arm raises and L sit holds

      It's actually legit. Try doing frontal raises with bent arms vs straight arms. With straight arms you feel it in your bicep because you're resisting the weight from bending your arm. It's why gymnasts have huge biceps even though they don't necessarily spam curls

      It's definitely not something you can switch between hammer and regular bicep curls. The straight arm requires much more tendon strength and you'll likely have to start from square one if you make the switch

      But straight arm strength transitions into much more gymnastics movements than bent arm. Unlocking L sits, planche, human flag, levers and more

        Biceps can't resist the weight from bending your arm because it's a flexor. What you're describing is the job of triceps
        >It's definitely not something you can switch between hammer and regular bicep curls
        Not true at all
        >The straight arm requires much more tendon strength
        No more than any other bodyweight exercise
        >and you'll likely have to start from square one if you make the switch
        "making the switch" in this case is no different than learning any new exercise. It will take your body a few training sessions to adjust to an unfamiliar movement and learn the technique but that's about it

        Thats why im asking this question. I used to be a gymnast and you don't need to train to start practicing these movements. You just practice the skill and you gain some strength over time.
        I was a dyel 118lb wet gymnast and I had very little issues progressing on my skills. Do not try to convince me I was strong at any level

          If you can do this at any weight then you're a strong mf. I don't care if you can't dl 4pl8s. Body weight movements require much more relative strength regardless if you're 118lbs or 180lbs

            Relatively speaking amongst other 118lb small adults, yes I guess I was strong. But when it came to things like lifting a cooler onto the bed of a truck, helping moving furniture to a new apartment for friends, etc., i felt weak as hell compared to people that didn't exercise at all.

              >I felt
              So that's insecurity. I'm sorry you felt that way, but the strength you had is other people's goals. In a sense you believed the grass was greener on the other side. Was it?

              As a guy who can move furniture and coolers and other dumb shit. I'd rather be able to move my own body than superficial junk. Maybe I'm also seeing greener grass too, but I know if I was 118 with those skills. I'd never feel inadequate about my strength. I don't care about the opinions of fat people

                Yes it was you frickin moron. Im weigh more while still being able to do the same things. Im significantly stronger and actually healthy looking.
                I really dont understand your argument here other than saying to accept health at every size

                What I'm saying is strength at every size. Also I call cap that you can still do those movements. Going to need to see some photo proof.

                A 130lb gymbast is more impressive than a 200lb powerlifter. That's just how it goes. Body movements are significantly more impressive than picking up heavy things.

                The only one truly insecure is you. You can't even be truthful to yourself while at the same time telling people to think differently

                Bodyweight movements are the only relevant form of strength

                And me saying strength at every size was a play on words on you saying health at every size. Youre right. I do not respect fat people lifting big weights, because on the list of respectable things being fat is at the very bottom, and is enough to cancel put any respect that could be gained from big lifts.

                Being small isn't as detrimental as being fat is, so being small and strong is much more respectable. Especially since yo stay small and strong you have a lot less body mass to work with. Fat people are strong because they are fat and can eat in excess. Being small and strong means your body is miles more efficient than a fat persons.

                his argument is "I am a small dyel and must cope with acrobatics"
                now he will call me and everyone else in this thread fat

                So you would rather get outlifted by some fatty while at the same time believing you are somehow stronger than said fatty?
                Your insecurity is so wild you can't even understand how crazy your statement is. You might as well identify as strong rather than actually exercising at all

                If the small person can't lift as much or more than the fatty, their efficiency is literally 0.
                And on the flip side, it is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more impressive to see a fatty do a backflip rather than a skellington. You some some issues you gotta work out anon

                >fatty
                >doing a backflip
                Kek. Nice one

                Frick yeah I'd rather get outlifted by some fatass. THEY BETTER OUTLIFT ME. If not, what's the fricking point of getting that fat. But watch them seethe when girls enjoy watching me do my calisthenic routine and they mire my abs over their fat guts.

                You can outlift me all you want. EVERYBODY is more impressed with the guy who can control his bodyweight.
                EVERYBODY likes to look at lean guys more than fat guys
                EVERYBODY thinks gymnastics is harder and is more respectable than powershitting

                So what if you can lift 400lbs. So can a dolly. Can you do a handstand? Can you do a backflip? Look at the Olympics for example. Gymnastics has always been one of the most popular sports to watch. Weightlifting always has low viewership and struggles to continue to be an Olympic sport

              This is same as yoga.
              And frankly even mma.
              People train it, it looks cool.
              They usually do not transition their cool to real life situations.

              Since i am neither a clown nor an acrobat, i literally do not require anythibg other than functional power, size and knowledge how to do 1-2 boxing

      But I can't do any of those just yet but L sit. What's the dumbell progression, what accessory lifts? Don't just read the image please. Even I could do that

    I do this exercise I came up with, in order to train upper chest without using my shoulders much. It is basically an overhead cable pullover, performed standing up, with your back against the machine. Position your back against the cable station, fixing the pole between your lats, and set your feet some distance in front of you, shoulder width apart— As if you were using them to brace your upper back against the pole. Then, using a close grip, proceed to perform a pullover; hold the weight at the bottom for some time before retreating the cable up halfway and repeating. You’ll feel it in your upper chest. The exercise is performed with a straight arm, although a slight bend can be used to enhance upper chest gains.

    Where this becomes a straight-arm workout, rather than an upper chest static hold, is that you’ll find your arms will often become the point of failure as a result of stabilization needs. Eliminate the static hold and do this exercise for reps, at a lighter weight, in order to put a bigger strain on your arms. Again, the best thing about this workout is that you won’t use your front delts or shoulders at all unless you’re doing it wrong/ using too much weight.

    Hopefully this helps, I think I technically came up with this one.
