    Good stuff. I would add dragon-flags to that list, but I suppose Front Lever already encompasses that movement in a way. Or I guess what I mean to say is if you can hold a front lever chances are you can do dragon flags.

    He should have pics illustrating each one. He IS using a picture of Zuzana from BodyRock.tv for the pistol squat. Wonder if he got her permission?

    I was thinking the same thing. I am going to build myself an adult jungle gym but then I need to figure out what to do in winter.

    My indoor pull-up bar saved me during this winter, and to make up for the lack of added weight I would focus on one-arm pull up variations like using a towel for assistance or whatever.

    You guys definitely need to get rings, whole different beast.

    Indeed a ncie list! I'd have a hard time finding 20 top exercises!

    I'd want to add a press to handstand, though it's more of a move, but it's a DARN powerful one! Hanging leg raise is another one.
    Another one would be the glute-ham raise/natural leg curl. (GHR/NLC). Hits your lower back, glutes and and hamstrings.

    Btw, am I the only one who senses a little photoshopping in that picture? I know gymnasts have amazing physique, buuut... it does look a little fake to me.

    Agree on the rings. You can use them for ANYTHING (almost... I have yet to find a way to do GHRs/NLCs with them, lol - I use my pullup bar for that.)

    I don't think the pic is shopped, gymnasts are that sickly fit, also: overhead lighting.

    Regarding the press to handstand, I think "handstand push up" covers that, but I would agree with you that the lower back involvement in a press is fucking tough.
