Re: I <3 my Rumble Roller

There is a ball: its called a massage ball.

Uggy's Journey to the free hold handstand Push Up!

I've made a log because I thought it could be fun. Goal it to do press ups in handstand position! (still can't post images) Stats: Weight: 69kg/152lbs Standing Military Press: 40kg/90lbs (5x5) My method of progression: Work from a normal press up to a press up where my feet are placed on an incline....
