It appears that ST has been permanently damaged by politard activity when an entertaining and enlightening thread topic like this can provoke disharmony and discord.


Didn't realize so many old STers popped off so many one arms. Impressive.

That is IMO the best one of those shirts you don't have to tuck in ever displayed on the web

Ahhh yes...but how many one-finger, one-arm mavins do we have in the room?
My good friend and partner pk davidson could do multiple on either side suspended by a loop of 7mm perlon.
I am far too large a cutlet to manage such maneuvers but as a show of power, this One is hard to match.

More one-arm pullups (y'all know who's doing them here)

I found something like four pages of videos of people doing them, sometimes with as much as 10 kg added weight... Here's Dani Andrada:

How did a light-hearted post about a pretty amazing physical feat (by a climber) devolve into this?

I don't know and too bad you get "slapped" for posting content that isn't political.
Or is everything political these days...?

I'm with ya though, pretty impressive (though it kinda looks like a gif not a kip:-)

Would you take some good acid in trade? Or one of those no tuck shirts or a photo of a shirtless McKinneyy in a tuck?

@Russ: WTF? Where do you find this stuff? Performance art weirdos. Wow.

Maybe harder than one-arms?

As we say down here.... "My feed is different than yours..."

Dude has done many of those 4 hour sitting and smiling vids. Mesmerizing. He has got to have a screw loose.

Edit: still blown away by how strong that lady is... just wow

Now that one-arm one-finger pullups are a dime a dozen, I think one of Gill's enduring feats of gymnastic strength is the one-arm front lever. Here too the hoards are massing, but from what I can see, most people doing them have not risen to Gill's level of mastery. (Ironically, considering the bizarre turns of this thread, my current comment is all about form; a front lever with the body piked isn't really a front lever.)

Anyway, here's about the only one I've seen that manages the straight-body straight-arm position that is the defining characteristic of the move. Interestingly, he adopts a cross-body arm position which is analogous to the shoulder-rotation moves developed by the climbing community.



By way of comparison, the master at work

Crazy strength endurance. Most any naturally strong person can learn to do a one-arm. But they get progressively harder with each rep. By a lot. That guy is VERY impressive. Doubt it, have a go yourself and report back to Rich.

I bench pressed 225 once. I dunked a basket ball once in gym class. Led 11d sport and trad onsight but never 12a. I tried one arms but never could do it. I have removed it from my bucket list. Sigh...:-)

The Alex Puccio video is very impressive; wow.

The dude in Rich's OP is quite impressive as well.

All very entertaining, thanks.
