How did you get involved in the street workout world?
I got involved with street workout after watching some of the videos on youtube of Hannibal For King and Barstarzz. I started off with just the basic pushups and pull-ups. Then I progressed to handstands and muscle ups. I just kept practicing and over time I started training for the planche and front lever. I love training with all my friends and meeting new people who do street workout. To me, street workout is not a workout, its my life and I love it!!
Why did you choose to practice street workout?
I started off practicing street workout because I wanted to learn all the cool moves everybody was doing. I just like street workout, its fun, its free, and you can do it anywhere.
How is street workout reflected in your life?
In a great way! It keeps me energetic and I have met so many great people through
the sport. I have gotten a lot of great opportunities to be on TV, in magazines, and across the country. I hope one day to travel the world doing it.
What are your short term, mid term and long term goals with street workout?
My short term goal is to do a straight arm maltese press into a hadstand.
As far as my mid term goals go, I just hope to inspire as many people as I can and learn as much as I can.
As for my long term goal, I hope to meet everybody in the sport. There are a lot of great athletes out there who have inspiring stories to tell. I want to workout with them!
How many times do you workout during the week?
I don’t have any set schedule normally. It varies anywhere from 5 workouts a week to 14 workouts a week. Some days I workout once while other days I workout twice. It just depends on how I feel. 2 weeks before a competition I change it to 7 workouts a week and a rest day before the competition.
Do you have any specific workout plan or you just improvise and do your thing?
Ill practice front lever pull-ups and full planche presses to warm up. Then I practice maltese and straddle maltese press. After I do that I’ll just improvise for the rest of my workout.
Which would be the most complex move you achieved (tell us about the process it took you, to achieve it)?
The maltese press. Right now I can only do a straddle maltese press and haven’t yet perfected it yet. It was pretty hard for me to attain since I keep getting injured which makes training more difficult. However I have recovered and am quickly getting stronger!!
Which would be the best experience you had doing street workout?
The best experience Ive had doing street workout was during the semi finals in New York. Although I didn’t win I met a lot of people that inspire me and made a lot of new friends. I like competition, but for me street workout means more than just a trophy. Ive never met so many people who love working out as much as me!!
What inspire or motivate you to keep on doing street workout?
My fans and my friends. I love training and I want everybody to be able to achieve their goals. That’s what motivates me to keep training. Because I know that somebody who’s watching my videos will be motivated enough to start!!
Which would be the worst experience you had doing street workout?
I dislocated my shoulder last summer about a month before my competition in New York. I have learned my lesson and from now on I will always do a good warm up haha.
What do you expect from the street workout community in the next couple of years?
I hope to see it being more advertised in the US. I know its big over in Russia and I would love for it to be as popular of here in the US too.
Can you give an advise for all the people that would like to start doing street workout?
Handstands handstands handstands!!!! Pullups pull-ups pull-ups!!!!! Dubstep dubstep dubstep!!!
