Interesting question… that could be a whole thread. It would be cool to hear everyone's response to that one!

For me… probably front levers. I have never gotten past the advanced tuck lever, but I always enjoy working on it.

ccheatum i totally agree. that is a good question...


For me its pull ups. No matter what workout I'm doing I always find myself gravitating towards the nearest pull up bar or doing some variation of the movement. Still nowhere near getting a one arm pull up :|

My favourite exercise in terms of sheer usefulness, beauty, enjoyability and badass factor is the Olympic barbell snatch.

Hey I started quite a similar thread to this one Dave ;) anyway, gotta be the pull up. Classic and great, great classic. All you need is something high to grab onto. Weight wise, clean and press. That's fun.

Burpees make me forget what's real and turn pain into pleasure then shortly into regret! But finally into satisfaction and greater ease. That is, of course, so long as you don't do superhuman volume like ABHPage once did. I wonder if anyone who remembers him from the old forum knows what he's up to now?

I used to occasionally catch a post from him at Ross's forum, but it's been a long while, at least 2-3 years. Whatever he's doing now though, he's probably STILL jacked from all the burpees he did with us.

As for my favorite exercises, right now I'd say squats and high pulls.

He did crazy volume on a lot of stuff. Very 70's style bodybuilding-esque. Over 120 headstand pushups in only 4 sets, multiple sets of 20 towel pullups, etc.

I barely remember him. Probably just from someone mentioning him. Those are some good numbers!
Speaking of old members, anyone ever hear from RickVV? I think he's either in a gulag or chose to disconnect.

Pretty sure he chose to disconnect, as I have not seen him on FB either. It's like he deactivated his account... :(

He traveled a lot, iirc. And spent one year living out of a car, and another basically just playing videogames... haha.

That's not the same guy I remember.... When I first got on FB I remember he had a lot of pro-gun/anti-gov posts. I really think "they" came and warned him or worse. No, I'm not paranoid. Just because the voices don't talk to you, doesn't mean they are not there :laugh2:

And just because you like conspiracy theories, doesn't mean any of them are remotely close to the truth....

I've seen plenty of that stuff on facebook, including guys brandishing mostly-illegal or potentially illegal firearms, on a regular basis, for years. They haven't vanished anywhere. The government is doing other things. Personally, I think time would be better spent getting rid of a few crazies who might snap, than engaging in political partisan deadlocks, but that's just me.

And I was talking about ABHPage, not Rick... lol.

Wait... RickVV lived out of a car and promoted conspiracy theories? Wasn't the the stocky older dude who did handstands and stuff? That doesn't really sound like him.

Doesn't sound like EvilOne either... he worked for the government.
