Since I use...

Re: Handstand Accomplished!!!!

Thanks Geosta for the kind words. I am too impressed with the results!!!!! I personally feel that our DT mantra "Train, Don't Strain" coupled with working out this movement 3 times per week (other day training) are behind my quick progress.

Re: Handstand Accomplished!!!!

Update on my performace: By now I am up to 10 full handstand push-ups. I am planning on getting the numbers up to 15 and then try to place the hands on stands (small ones first) instead of on the floor to increase the range of motion. The same principle of Atlas Dips but applied to handstands :D You...

Re: getting ready to do the dynamic tension course

Ben, as you should know, DT is a very natural way of training. If you have the doctor's OK to follow it, give it your best!!!!

Re: Starting back up

Great decision Mickey!!!! DT is great beacuse it is all natural. Put your mind in the muscle you are training and you will see results in no time. As Mr. Atlas said, exercise with a WILL. If you would "TRAIN, DON'T STRAIN", the results you are looking for will surely come!!!! :P

Simon, how is the perpetual lesson going for you? Just curious about it. BTW, you can add to it whatever lesson you think needs more attention :)
