Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend! I’ve been meaning to make more #MonkeyBarMonday videos, and when I drove by the park between errands realized that some people seem to have today off, so there were actually quite a few kids and families on the monkey bars. It was more than enough of an excuse to avoid any 5-year-olds and their “Mommy, why’s that lady on our monkey bars? And what’s wrong with her hair?” situations. So, remembering a super fun (and pretty challenging) monkey bar alternative drill from Jon Bruney’s Neuro-Mass: The Ultimate System for Spectacular Strength (pull-up bar walk pages 172-173 where you’ll find some fun photo examples from Matt Maher and myself)
The pull up bar in the video is of the easily found “municipal fit-trail” variety, with the added “bonus” that for whatever reason the bar itself spins a little, you can just hear the bar squeaking in the video when it does. LOL “advanced variation”. Or something like that.
Speaking of calisthenics, just last week Dragon Door announced the brand new 1-day Strength Progressive Calisthenics (SCC) certification!!! I’m super excited because the entire leadership team for the PCC will be there in attendance! (Al Kavadlo, Danny Kavadlo, Myself, Beth Andrews, Logan Christopher, Angelo Gala) Good times with lots of learning await you! See you there!!
