I love that second video. (I like the first one too but I’ve already seen it.) I can’t wait for my hand to feel better so I can try that. Kinda off-topic but I’ve seen that alot of playgrounds around here require an adult to enter with a kid! Maybe keep paedophiles away from the children? Anyway, there are plenty of cool playgrounds here in SF but I’m not supposed to use them! Which gets to one of my ideas for an adult playground. Kinda like a climbing gym but not so much just a wall as a giant jungle gym with pole vault mats (3 feet of foam) on the floor, so you can fall from 20 feet and be fine.
Hmm, weird. How about a local college? Have you seen this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd19yxhi_cM – it’s the Santa Monica rings. They also have pullup and parallel bars and climbing ropes. Only 8 hours south (?).
At my current rate of progress, I’m about 200 years from doing this stuff. I’ve started with easier stuff like yoga and regular pullups and that frog stand balance thing (never mind pushing up from there at the moment).
