Gymnasts are some of the strongest athletes. Check out some of those kettlebells on the Dragons Door site as well.

I agree with the statement about gymnasts being some of the strongest athletes. Some of the things I see gymnasts do is awesome!!

Those exercises build-up the strength for other things too.


Before when I used to try a one arm pull-up I couldn't bend my elbow at all. now after training the front and back levers I am able pull-up a lot better then before... still not close to doing it though.

This is me doing a good gymnastic exercise called a muscle-up.
It's a pull-up with a dip at the top

They're hard to learn but it feels really good once you learn them.

Those are called "muscle-ups" they say that they're the equavilent to doing 4 dips and 4 pull-ups. Heres a link to a guy doing them http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/kane...stretching.htm

The hardest part of the muscle-up is the transition between the pull-up and the dip. The false grip takes a while to get used to, also.

I learned how to do two in a row the other day, my triceps are dead now.
