I'm sure that having a competitive outlet for lifting helps. Fortunately, I've got a similar thing with performances through the acrobatics club, and the stuff I do isn't limited to competitive gymnastics events (or even to competitive style on traditional apparatus). I focus on handbalancing stuff and partner acro (basing for mixed pair, men's pair, and now possibly mixed quads). It is about time that I focus on rings and p-bars now though...
Steve, I've actually got a clip of our hand-to-hand routine one of the times we didn't botch up. It wasn't perfect, of course, but it was a pretty good run. Want me to post it here or somewhere?
