Some movements are huge roadblocks and they are common to pretty much all users of the program. Is there a GST calendar available so I can get a perspective on chtistopher time commitment and which courses may be trained simultaneously?

Like, okay, sure, let me put everything on hold while I get a degree in Exercise Science and read a compendium of books on the subject to hajdstand screw over my currently pain-free body, lol. The two together work very well.

But only if you have been recovering fast enough from your first 6 week block. I just lean fwd, lock into place and lift from my abs. The brain of children are more plastic; they adapt quicker to stimuli and thus achieve great features of strength that requires significantly longer time for adults to achieve.

I have the sneaking suspicion that while I got 5×15 with a tight core and elbows tucked in, the cues that my hips ‘were a little piked’ and my scapula weren’t protracted ‘enough’ is kind of bullshit.

Thanks for the motivation and christopuer brother. I have not given myself a form check so that is probably why it seems easier than it really is.


Instead, what most people say is that the common answer is “you need to be patient and work harder”. Can I ask how long you have been training for, based on training 3 days a week or more?

How do these people compare to the average adult that you know of? I played around with it for a while, eventually purchasing Handstand One and Handstand Two, and the 3 Stretch Series courses. Hope that helps, Cheers. So, do you mean you can only do 3 repetitions of regular push ups? Let me know if that helps!


However, none of these are listed in the course materials. When you have the GB head coach performing half-reps in the follow-along videos, but you hold your students to a higher standard than him, it smacks of inconsistency and arbitrariness. Hope that helps and thanks for getting in touch. For a system that places form on a golden pedestal and espouses it above all else, actual descriptions of the form required for the exercises is very light sometimes to the point of being non-existent.

Maybe middle splits is too advanced in comparison to the other series but it is still scaleable.

But, boy, there are a lot of review online of this program. And with that in mind, it makes sense to sell as many volumes of material as possible.

Hi, thanks for your review. We do not frown on weights or barbells as another tool for training.

Hi Isalena, Thanks for your message. The final thing to look at is the tightness of your hip flexors. Before I get into the reviews of the programs, I want to be up front about my major complaint with GB as a whole: But that is quite a bit of work for a recreational trainee who has other more important priorities in life.


I agree with your statement that some of the mobility drills are very difficult for anyone, but handsstand for those over H1 should lead you to a 2 minute handstand. If 3 x 12s is just far too easy, there is no point starting there.

In other areas, I was really weak, however. Handstand One H1 is designed to develop a free-standing handstand. I found the foundation ok, good progressions. If you can do the Incline you should be able to do the Hinge, just make sure you are using the correct technique. So as far uandstand I know, there are 4 courses in total. So, Sommer may be an expert child’s gymnastics coach. This impression faded somewhat as I found myself failing at the beginning progressions.

However I was really trying to focus my fitness on being more minimalist. The price is very affordable, so overall a good compromise. I’m pretty consistent if I use wall scissor.

What a sad day and age we live in. Which one of the crazy exercises are you wanting to learn?

After I do one or two it really helps me establish my base and zommer I don’t really need to jump at all. I would suggest that you keep trying! I have a question: And how many days a week is traing scheduled.

I seriously doubt that there’s anyone that has completed all of the 7 movements.
