Putting this here because Facebook just feels like egoposting and here is more private. This is the first time I got horizontal in iron x practice and held it steady, this Tuesday just gone.



It's here because I struggle a lot with confidence and self esteem these days, and I want something to remind myself that occasionally I'm starry. That not all my practices are failures, and that I am making progress.

When i get that second leg straight, I'm going to be insufferable. :)

You look great! Super strong and great angles!  I am so jealous of your home rig!


I am currently working on getting my horizontal planche properly done and am starting with one bent and one straight leg, so i fully feel you.

I tried googling horizontal planche and it came up with lots of different things. Can you show me a picture?

(You know I'm going to go off and try it right?) :)

Similar to that, but I hope more of a right angle on my arms and being able to hold it longer. I am doing it holding someone elses hand and ankle so I don't get the same amount of support from my upper arms pressing against my torso.

It doesn't hurt! The most annoying part is that I feel completely separated from my body, I have no idea how straight or how flat I am at the moment, I need someone to tell me or take pictures.

I can imagine. When I'm upside down I have no clue what's going on at the other end of my body and have to be told.

Stupid rest of life spent mostly standing and using the ground as feedback!

Yeah! Awesome! I can do a clutch flag, but that's about it. I'm super impressed!

I have not tried one of those. Well I have, but not sideways, only facing downwards.

Wow, that looks very...bendy. In ways that I certainly couldn't pull off. It also looks like it takes a lot of physical strength and mental fortitude. Way to go!

I support you becoming insufferable. You'll DESERVE to be insufferable once you get that move perfect. It already looks pretty darn perfect to my (admittedly very uneducated) eyes.
