    doesn't mean shit, any ape can deadlift. it takes a whole lot of skill, strenghten, and balance to do what they are doing.

    those ring pushups are impressive. i actually tried them the other day, i usually do regular hand stand pushups and thought it wouldnt be a big step up to try them on the rings, so i did, it took me a few times to get to the hand stand, actually more than a few times, but then once i tried to go down for the push up i busted my shit. rings are fucking tough

    it takes more to deadlift. and you get better muscle development from it as well.

    they all look very weak and small aside from that one black guy. to me it just looks like "functional" gay bullshit.


    on another note, i do agree with everyone that those ring-pushups are nuts.

    anything more than that, your just a mound of muscle that will scare off woman.


    you deadlift, but you couldnt even do one muscle up.

    deadlifts are easy.

    I can deadlift x2 my bodyweight and I don't even do them religiously. any ape can pick dead weight off the floor. try doing 50 pull ups in a row or "the flag".

    muscle up...as in a pullup into basically a dip..yeah i dont think i can do that lol.

    1 muscle up, easy. 20? thats another story.

    and whats with the "ape" shit over and over? i think hanging around on monkey bars and what not is more ape-ish than a deadlift.


    in respone to the other video; i recognize that bodyweight exercises can be beneficial to muscle devleopment. things like dips and pull ups are a staple in most peoples routines and are acknowledged worldwide by bodybuilders for their effectiveness but bodyweight can only take you so far and i dont think that a playground is an adequate training facility.

    lol @ bodyweights can only take you so far.


    That is true but tell me when you reach that "limit".

    99.9% of people are not even at the stage where they can say "bodyweight exercises won't do me good anymore in terms of getting bigger/stronger and weights must be incorporated."

    hell, I can do 33 pull ups in row, perfect form.. lock out arms and go all the way up to the chin touches the bar and even I have a long way to go before I say some shit like that.

    ok but you need to understand that there is a balance between reps and resistance in order to produce the most muscle. once you hit a certain amount of reps its better to increase the load or resistance because if you dont youll just be recruiting muscle fibers for endurance and not muscle fibers for hypertrophy or strength (whichever is your goal).
