Another great week here on Straight to the Bar. The highlights :
- Articles : Fight Geek looked at the Diesel Crew’s superb Ultimate Sled-dragging Manual, I scoured the archives in search of sleep and Dan John noted 3 Simple Tips That Work. They’re not what you might expect.
- Videos : Ready to go old school? Ryan has the answer, Jerry Hill explained how to clean up your clean and Parkour Generations showed off the highlights from their latest gathering. Love it.
- Records : Hans Florine and Yuji Hiriyama climbed The Nose in a staggering 2 hours 37 minutes and 5 seconds, ‘Hobie’ Call knocked off a Lunge Mile in just under 25 min and Mohammad Zakir managed to smash 200 coconuts in just over 3 min. With his elbow.
- Ideas : Try out the Nilsson Curl, a few Plyo Pull-up Progressions and some Reactive Handstand Push-ups. Much harder than they look.
Bonus – Base Jumping Off Wind Turbine
At the British Open Base Jumping Championships, competitors jumped from a 60m (200′) wind turbine. Good fun.
