So from the moment i started (5-6 years ago) I’ve been doing it just about on a daily basics till this day. I’ve pretty much eliminated weights and adopted this form off fitness.

I pretty much have no plan at all when i workout i just pretty much do what i feel like doing. Freestyle i guess, no sets or anything like that.
Which would be the most complex move you achieved (tell us about the process it took you, to achieve it)?
I would say handstands on a straight bar was the most challenging move for me. It’s not something you get in one workout, its relentless practice! Till this day theres still sometimes that i struggle with it! But all that hard work pays off cause I’m definitely confident!

The worst experience i guess is dealing with the injuries. 1 injury for example is when i slipped off the bar and landed on the back off my head and was pretty much unconscious.

I’ve noticed its gone viral.It’s huge now, world wide! I see this community getting tv exposure and endorsement/sponsors getting involved.
Can you give an advise for all the people that would like to start doing street workout?
Advise is to not get intimidated and stay patient with the basics. Once you master the basics then you will have the strength to take it a step higher! But keep in mind QUALITY OVER QUANTITY!
