4 STATIC STRENGTH SKILLS (That aren’t impossible to learn)

December 22, 2016 by VAHVA Fitness

4 static strength skills most people should be able to master when they just put in the hard work! Happy holidays!

The basic forms of these 4 static strength skills should be achievable by most people regardless of gender as long as they stick to the right progressions.

4 static strength skills demonstrated in the video:

  • Back bridge
  • V-sit
  • Crow pose
  • One sided elbow lever

These are 4 cool tricks that look and feel impressive to yourself and other people. The best part is that they aren't nearly impossible to learn like some of the elite level strength skills such as the full planche or maltese (gymnastics).

One sided elbow lever is a great static hold that is used a lot in breakdance and capoeira. You can do a lot with it and it's one of the most badass looking skills out there.

L-sit & V-sit has been part of calisthenics and gymnastics for as long as they have existed. L-sit is achievable by almost anyone, but V-sit requires some intense strength and mobility from your triceps, core and hip flexors. Put in the work and the V-sit is definitely achievable as well.

Crow pose originates from yoga. It's a fantastic skill to improve your handstands and overall handstand ability.

Back bridge is the ultimate test for your posterior mobility - you can't do it unless you are truly mobile from your hamstrings to your shoulders.

We added detailed tutorials (from beginners to advanced) for all of these skills to our Movement 20XX training course.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
