As many of you know, I decided not to post on this forum very often for a reason, but I have to admit that I need to step out and give a nod to the May 2008 issue of PM. Fantastic stuff.

The Tumbling Warm-up reminds us that this form of training has long roots in S and C. Great article and any article that mentions Coach Reeves deserves a read. Rut's articles...which I still make mandatory along with Bill Fox's classic "Black Box" article...is the reason I still look forward to everything he writes. I also enjoyed the fact that Greg looked intelligently at the low back squat point. I would add one other point: no elite O lifters (at least in my experience or my reading) do Low Back Squats. True, there might be exceptions, I just haven't seen them in the films of any of the top five in recent Olympics.

So, hats off and I still tell people that PM is one of the few (very few) things worth subscribing to...

I'm looking forward to trying the tumbling warmup. Hopefully I'll be able to do the basic things without incuring public humiliation/injury.

I recall the initial discussion Greg had with Coach Rip on the CF board and thought it was a very well defined synopsis for those who may have missed it the first time.

Point of clarification on the tumbling warmup:

In the article the routine laid out was Coach Reeve's tumbling warmup. So is what is show on the video what Stephane likes to use with his athletes?
