    Impressive. I'm sending to my 9yo granddaughter in Syracuse who is very fit and really wants to do handstands.

      Sweet! I gotta check that park out. I’m going to be working in NYC starting next week so definitely going to hit up a park at least twice a week after work it’s actually part of the reason I decided to take a job there!

      Smooooooth no arm muscle ups man!

        Oh, that does look fun -- and impressive. All the synchronization was amusing, too. And wow, those slow, controlled moves on the bench were particularly cool.

          Thanks! You should send her a link to my handstand tutorial as well.

          Thanks! I am using my arms though - just not gripping the bar.

          Hope to run into you at East River Park or Tompkins some time this summer.

          Thanks! Glad you liked the synchronized stuff - the "muscle-up wave" is one of my personal favorites!

            Thought it was still called “no arm” grip? Or is it “no hand” either way… cool work! And yes I definitely hope to run into you at the parks. I’ve improved a little since we last met.

              I would call it a false grip or a no-hands grip, but it doesn't really matter what you call things. A rose by any other name, yada yada...

                My only question is why East River Park and not Tompkins Square? Just variety?
                Great video as always.

                    Thanks, Shaun! And yeah I wanted to film some stuff at ERP for variety's sake. Also, the set-up at the two parks is a little different, which allows for different variations of moves, like that modified one arm muscle-up I do towards the end of the vid.

                      I got a kick out of the dude behind y'all when all three of you guys were up on the monkey bars simultaneously...he was probably reminiscing of his youth waiting for his turn!

                        Glad you liked the video!

                        Those guys behind us got their reps in for sure - there were actually a lot of people working out there that day. Word is getting out!

                          L-sits are rad.
                          You guys make those muscle ups look way too easy!

                            Thanks! Keep training hard - with enough practice, even muscle-ups eventually become manageable. I wouldn't quite call them easy though!

                              Any suggestions for an overweight/obese guy working on losing weight and gaining functional strength and fitness? I have never been able to do a pull up and to be able to knock 10 off withoput a problem is my goal. That and I want to someday be able to do the human flag as well. I'm really reluctant to spend money on equipment or fitness programs as I'm working on adopting a frugal/minimal lifestyle
