So recently I found myself at a plateau. I decided that I needed to increase my core strength and one day at the gym a one time gymnast came in and blew my mind with how strong he was. After two months of body weight only handstand training and planche progressions, I have seen quite a bit of improvement.
Yes you dont want to over do your push muscles, but I think that this kind of training is perfect to combat tendonitis, and increase shoulder girdle and core strength. http://www.gymnasticbodies.com/...rticles&Itemid=3
Tell me what you think.
