    It's not "we're told" it's someone told you. Tell yourself. Figure it out for yourself if you feel safe with what you think. Or keep getting told.

    Look into stretches for levator scapulae. Also if you do shrugs for traps, especially if it's barbell in front, do overhead shrugs instead.

    I use to really cramp up on core when doing my planche stuff. I spend a lot of time doing "backward abdominal stretch" before going into my holds and after. I drink a lot of water and take potassium...

    I am a firm believer in "you are only as strong in the range of motion you do". Planche has demonstrated that to me. You can train to hold a solid clean tuck planche for 30-60 seconds, that will not...

    My upper arms and forearms are naturally separated looking. If I don't work out at all and get fat over time (this happened), the forearms are still very separated looking, upper arms I'd have to...

    Jeff isn't really a calisthenics person. He found a different way to explain and train for hollow body. If you lay on your back and make lower back flat, that is pulling your pelvis in. And yes...

    A lot of people don't know, I see people at my gym doing plank with lower back sag or too arched. I see people do leg lifts with hands under their lower back, if they were actually engaging the abs...

    Bodyweight wise, you can work on Dragon Press. Besides core, it really hits the triceps and rear delts. I think triceps/rear delts are the only muscles involved in pressing you up or at least the...

    The up position of a bicep curl (guessing that is what you mean) the weight is resting on your palm. You don't even have to grip it if you don't go past 90 . At the bottom, it's all grip.

    I train core every day. All my planche and front lever progression needs it and it's what's holding me back along with shoulder rotation strength. Besides that I also do hollow body holds, rocks and...
