I hope that's true. It may be that my greatest contribution is my willingness to experiment and report. I'm like the lab rat that gets maimed by one experiment and happily volunteers for the next.

This latest experiment is the culmination of months of forum conversation about the effect of increased strength programming and limited metcon. Your post a month ago gave me the final push. If the early returns are any indicator of future performance, I'll never be a full-time CFer again.

I'm with you.

Between the early indicators of progress and the plain fun I'm having with adult-gymnastics and increased amounts of skill-based strength work, I see this going on for a long time.

Dr. G,
Just wondering if you wouldn't mind updating us at some point in the next few weeks on how your SS inspired work is going and whether or not it's impacting your gymnastics, either positively or negatively.

Definitely will check out the log. I did some gymnastics when I was young (pre 10 years old) and have developed a growing interest once again in my early-mid twenties now. Trying to do what I can remember and still do is hard with the lack of flexibility that's resulted from not enough stretching even though I am probably at my personal strongest relative strength.
