System & Finger Training

I have finally finished my system wall. I started this training years ago when I read an article by the Huber brothers on how they used this method to help them increase their strength, power and body tension.

The BP Editor on Dread Left V6/7

A very cool problem. As Rob mentions in the post. The grade maybe closer to V6, as I reflect on Acid Wash right I did a week ago from the stand and sit. I do believe Acid Wash right from the stand is a bit more technical and powerful, so V6/6+ is probably right. All […]
