This Roye Gold dude is ridiculous..

The intro to this clip is insane IMHO, probably not the hardest thing to do for guys like this but god damn does it look animalistic as fu*k.



"abs", lol:












man these dudes are nuts, impressive.

i guess this is the next progression from simply calisthenic movements, the ability to link them together in incredible ways. stuff looks surreal compared to the normal "bar stars" style stuff (which is still incredible impressive), but it's just how this guy is seamlessly transitioning from one to the other, so fluid, that's mind blowing.

that is what the GMB guys advocate as well, as a progression from learning individual skills. they refer to sequences like that as katas, i guess from martial arts: stringing a bunch of skills together in a row and working to make them as smooth and strong as possible.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Haha man the start of that first video has a straddle planche which is almost the hardest skill he does. Especially being 193cm!!! He's a former elite swimmer who only started with this stuff maybe 4-5 years ago max.

What about the jump to passing the single leg through the hands!!! If ever there was going to be a challenge on this site that should be it.

Hahaha. Surely it's a skill more than pure vert. His vert can't be more than around low 30s anyway.

Another one...I gotta give this a try. Also, look how shallow the dip is before he jumps. Super impressive.

the one leg landing, after all of that stuff in the air, is impressive af.

that's actually the clip i was searching for, when i saw you post the other one above. saw that one yesterday and was like wtf.... couldn't find it today, thnx for posting it.

it's funny how you mention giving it a try .. i look at these clips and that never crosses my mind, lmfao.

That's the first thing I think actually haha. I'll try to find my favourite one where he does a whole sequence on one leg. It's incredible.

*Edit- here it is. This is the one that made me want to try it as he's not getting as much height.
