Starting to train the #HumanFlag on poles as much as I can now, as opposed to (or, as well as) ladders. It's a totally different ball game - not so much from a strength point of view, as the same push 'lower arm' and pull 'upper arm' muscles and mechanics are working in the same way, but in terms of balance the lack of a neutral grip (palms facing each other) such as on a ladder makes stabilising yourself significantly more challenging... I've found to be the case anyway, and my left-side-up wasn't having any of it so I tried, failed, tried, failed etc. then just did extra #ClutchFlags on that side instead 🤣😬
Focused on Chamber Holds today, which is the penultimate flag regression exercise. Place your top hand in an overhand grip and the bottom in an underhand grip facing the opposite direction so the elbow of the lower arm faces downward. Kick into a high position with your knees tucked in, straighten your arms and hold. Just working on developing endurance and stability in that position at the moment, with a few changes in leg positioning..
I then discovered a pretty cool core conditioning exercise combining wide-grip hanging L-Sits, Leg Raises and Inverted Deadlifts, which also works your lats, grip and forearm strength HARD 🙌🏼😥
Now to the @gipsyhillbrew birthday party 🎉🍻😎
