Sasuke Training : Cliffhanger Part 1

So the Sasuke Asean Cup is approaching so I really need to step up my training....

Good friend of mine showed me this training area in KL to practice Cliffhanger type moves using only a ledge.

The feeling of this is very very different to hanging on a bar etc .. just your finger tips adds a whole new level of strength requirement... The tendons controlling your fingers are controlled by the muscle group in your foreman just above the inside of the elbow. Trust me you will know who they are when you try this ... they will be screaming at you !!!

This is only my second time trying this so have a lot of work to do in terms of endurance.. I need to be able to do a few rounds of the ledge to be confident going into Sasuke .....

Key things I need to work are : Stability ( legs are all over the place) and more efficient movement. Not quite figured what is the best method is yet ... dead hang or bent arms .... Shoulders ...or biceps.

Guess I need to train them both!

Enjoy .........

Advanced Bodyweight Workout :Ladders !

Just Sharing my latest obsession !  Ladder workouts.

These are great high density workouts which will definitely burn a shed load of calories, improve your VO2 Max , allows you to practice newer exercises that you may not be too confident with and most importantly .. THEY ARE NOT BORING!!!!

Due to the load that you will be put yourself through, I wouldn't advise doing this more than once every 2 weeks. Gives you time to recover....

But you can always break it down into smaller ladders and do it more frequently :  go nuts :)

Great thing about ladder workouts are that they can always be different , you decide what exercise to do and how many times ..

Have fun .. drop any questions below :)
