    When I have a go at anything like that, I feel embarrassed as I am so stiff and heavy in comparison. As I have just watched you I assume it is going to be easier than what it is. Oh well, Onwards and upwards.
    Keep at it and be patient. All the things you see me do in these videos took lots and lots of practice to make look easy!

    Thanks very much! And since pretty much everyone at that park knows me by now, I don't get as many funny looks anymore.

    your finger/joint strength is crazy. I've been devoting more time to strengthening my wrists and fingers and spending a lot more time in handstands but I'm still pretty far from full fingertip push ups for reps.

    I've done various fingertip holds as well as plenty of grip work hanging from the bar. Just doing lots of pull-ups will do wonders for your grip. I'm actually planning to do a blog post on grip/fingertip strength at some point in the near future.

    In the meantime, there is a great book I recommend with lots of info on training your grip, fingers and hands. It's called Convict Conditioning 2.

    Been using CC2's grip strengthening for the last several weeks with great results. towel hangs, especially. My forearms are getting RIPPED - something I didn't think would happen - and my pullup reps have increased b/c my grip is less of a weak link than it used to be. Never took grip training seriously til about a month ago... That was dumb. Now I'm smarter
