How did you get involved in the street workout world?
Basically i was doing a lot of different types of sports and i always tried to keep myself as fit as possible through resistance training my entire life. I came across this sport called street workout, when i saw Hannibal for King performing bodyweight feats on youtube and decided to give it a try. Later i started connecting with other bar athletes via social networks.
Why did you choose to practice street workout?
At the time when i started doing street workout i simultanously quit my gym membership because i was looking for something more effective and less expensive. I already mentioned that Han was my inspiration, from the first time when i saw him performing muscle ups i knew that i wanted to train as hard as i can to achieve this movement. During my training for this feat i figured out that street workout was the training i never had and always wanted.
How is street workout reflected in your life?
Actually street workout has affected my life in many differend ways. At first it helped me a lot to figure out the power of the mind and how capable and resistent our body can be. It seems like we re designed to be a lot stronger than we ever could imagine. This fact really illuminated my mind and showed me that i could achieve whatever i wanted if i worked hard towards reaching my goals – not only in street workout but my whole life.
As a strength and conditioning coach calisthenics is part of my every day work life and has been a beautiful tool which helps me to make people fit. It‘s as well my sport so im considering myself as a bar athlete and this is my lifetyle. I probably can say that street workout definitely helped me to live my dream.
What are your short term, mid term and long term goals with street workout?
First i have to say that one of my short, mid and long term goal definitely is to stay healthy and out of injury. I m too much addicted to this sport to bear it for a month because of an injury.
So my short term goals are to make it to the World Championship 2014 in Moscow and at least to compete in one World Cup Stage in 2014.
My mid and long term goals are being able to inspire as many people as possible to live a fitter and healthier lifestyle and to show the youth a fun and very effective way to train their body in order to fight for example obesity and deseases. Further i want help as many people to get involved in the process of becoming a healthier and better person.
How many times do you workout during the week?
With all the mobility, strength trainng, workouts and grease the grove sets probably 6-7 days a week.
Do you have any specific workout plan or you just improvise and do your thing?
Basically i try to train new moves and new feats im currently working on every day throughout the day as fresh as possible and as often as possible. Im also following a routine of 2-3 heavy calisthenics basics workouts a week.
Which would be the most complex move you achieved (tell us about the process it took you, to achieve it)?
The most complex move for me was to achieve a fluent 360 muscle up out of an explosive muscleup, thats for freestyle calisthenics.
The most complex basic move definitely was to achieve a full lockout one arm pullup so far.
Which would be the best experience you had doing street workout?
Actually there are too many beautiful experiences i m relating to street workout & calisthenics. So to name a few i for sure can say that the world championship in riga and the world cup in offenburg in 2013 were some of the best experiences in my whole life so far. On the other hand one of the best experiences i m still having is to whitness progress of other athletes & clients involved in the training method. This source of motivation simply is priceless for me.
What inspire or motivate you to keep on doing street workout?
I want to do this sport my entire life and i want to grow old as a strong and healthy man. Calisthenics is the best way to achieve that.
Which would be the worst experience you had doing street workout?
I don’t have this experience.
What do you expect from the street workout community in the next couple of years?
Im expecting a lot of growth in the sport itself worldwide for the next years as well as a lot more crazier movements performed by even crazier people.
Can you give an advise for all the people that would like to start doing street workout?
Yeah, if you really want to start doing street workout the most important things are patience and consistency. Learn that falior is only temporary and will turn out in success. Stick to your goals and work your ass off, make this a routine lasting a lifetime.
