Training is hard work...family is hard work...and business is hard work. It’s difficult. There are no two ways about it. Yet, they can all be tied together in an effective way, if you if you utilize the tools, and use them the correct way. It could be like I was doing at age 14 in building a martial arts school. It can also be online. For Instagram, this involves being consistent, providing value, and, especially if you’re starting from scratch, doing it every day.
That’s why I have embedded into this Academy the 21 Instagram Challenge. Over 7 days, you need to post 21 times. Ideally, this should be 3 times per day. It will allow a person to receive feedback and learn how best to communicate with their audience. And that’s exactly what Instagram is: it’s a platform to address an audience that you yourself build.
So why not utilize that tool in the way it’s meant? And use it to provide value to people’s lives? Or is it just a way to scrapbook…but in an extremely public way? If it is just a hobby, then it’s like having bricks of gold, but using them as paperweights. I was actually talking with an old student the other day and I encouraged him to start making some videos of his cooking and food preparation. He’s got tons of talent and developed skill. Think after just 1 year of posting 3 pictures a day what kind of feedback, learning, growth, and perhaps even business development could take place. The audience will at least be in the thousands, and people who connect with his way of doing things might even want to learn how, or request products!
The main idea is this: use the resources you have to create as much as you can…or invest in others who create. Either way, life can’t be full of hobbies and free time. In fact, that isn’t what we were designed to do in the first place, but rather “created” with the purpose of cultivating within a garden. Instagram is part of the outgrowth of that garden.
Thanks for reading and listening! I hope you’ll take the time to Subscribe to our YouTube channel which is about a heck of a lot more than just athletics and movement.
This is the Men’s Gymnastics Level 5 Vault. In gymnastics, it is very important that everything is very polished. Why? It isn’t just to look pretty. It’s to achieve maximal power. I’m always talking about power, and that is achieved biomechanically and physically by holding forms as tight and straight as possible: like a bullet.
Here, Patrick AKA “Sideswipe” turns himself into a bullet. It’s a basic front flip, and it’s off of a spring board. A spring board does NOT guarantee height. Actually, a spring board can guarantee a major accident if the power is not going in the right direction and form isn’t held tight and straight.
This front flip is probably about 8-10 feet in the air. It is well over his own head height. And the landing is completely stuck with feet together. This shows that the forces were all going in the proper directions.
First, the feet were in front of the hips upon hitting the spring board, which propelled the frame directly vertically. Second, the body was held hollow while hitting the board and going airborne. Third, the tuck was delayed until almost completely at maximal height. With the rotation engaged right before maximal height, the thrust of the hips, legs, and feet upward and over the head added extra height.
As for the landing, the shoulders must get back in front of the toes and knees or else the body will collapse backwards into an under-rotated flip. This is no good. A little over-rotation is always better than under-rotation.
Now, if all of these forces were not aligned perfectly, then just like the design of the earth, it would have all fallen apart: a front flip flung 20 feet forward, a head grazing the ground, an accidental twist and rolled ankle, or a crash, fall, or flop on the back or over-rotated to the stomach, just to name a few things. But taking care of those details in preparation leads to good execution.

There are a lot of different ways to throw an Airflare or Airtrack. It can be done very low, like a rotating planche pushup, or very high like handhops. Ultimately, it’s simple an aerial rotation caught on the hands, and the higher it is, the easier it is to go into the 1990, or handstand spin.
The Airtrack or Airflare to 1990 is not that tricky of a powermove, but it still takes some finesse. If a powermover does an airflare too low, it will be practically a planche press to go to the 1990. If it is done the Korean way, with a major pike at the legs, it will actually be easier to continue the airflare than go up to the 1990. If it is done the Old School way, like Houston, TX powermovers, it will be very easy to go to the 1990.
Here are the key points: more pike = more difficult, and lower = more difficult. Some powermovers have a difficult time going the higher direction because they learned it from flares or swipes and cannot open the shoulder angle. This will present problems for learning higher aerial powermoves, especially when trying to catch in a 1 hand handstand.
There is a nice way of learning this using the wall that I’ve made other videos about. Make sure to give that a look. Of course, having good handstands, especially 1 hand handstands, is very good. Learning to walk in circles is extremely advantageous as well, as is learning to do an airtrack from handstand and back to a handstand.
Not only that, but learning hollowbacks will be a great way to develop the shoulder and back mobility to stay high and open in the shoulder angle to make catching easier. I hope this helps!

Remember doing #Calisthenics in high school on the first hour and you still have energy for the rest of the day? Or the N rounds of running around the court as a warm-up for your PE classes in college, but you feel energized instead of tired? Those were the days haha... I did 45 minutes today of calisthenics. Super tiring, and i felt like i had to keep on fighting to finish an exercise, especially the burpees! But i feel great, knowing that i did something good for my physical well-being. Thank you @calisthenicsking for the workout guide! We'll see what happens after 3 weeks. Then we move on to the second phase. I hope i can sustain this! And yes, I can still reach my toes, thank heavens! #Fitness#Exercise#Workout#FitMommaGoals#CalisthenicsKingz#CalisthenicsGirls#ChiseledIn30#StrongIsTheNewSexy#StrongerThanMyExcuses
