How did you get involved in the street workout world?
When I was 12, I went to rock-climbing class in my school. There I had to do pull ups, because climbing with weak arms was impossible. Since then I do push ups, pull ups, etc. – street workout.

Because I find this easy to do. I’m not in need to spend money for the gym doing street workout. I had great results and that motivated me to become the best in this sport.
