Got my copy today.
Definitely a bunch of things to fill in the gaps between progressions for me. Would say "SS for gymnastics" is a fairly accurate representation.
For those interested in learning a lot of the progressions the basic strength moves and stuff I would recommend.
P.S. I will say that the programming section is probably a bit more lacking than most people would have liked. Mostly on different variations you can do in a routine... but no solid templates or anything like those that his gymnasts would follow that encompass everything into one. Of coruse, since everyone is different that would've been futile anyway.
That's why my own "How to construct your own workout routine" is so vague at points, heh.. cause it depends on each person individually and where they're at.
Gymnastics and the strength training behind it is ALL about consistency. Since you don't get the satisfaction of adding weight to a bar to know you're progressing it can be frustrating and you probably want to quit more than with weights. If you're consistent, you can learn and do almost anything given enough time.
Yeah, people want to get to my level of strength (and I'm not even that high on the continuum anyway so it's not that impressive in a huge perspective). But I've been at it for a little over 3 years. All about consistency and working at it bit by bit. I hope to keep working and get the more advanced moves in time! Stay consistent with what you want to learn and do. Seek out good advice from people. Then you'll be able to do what you want to do.
