Here is one of my stories of stubborn determination-
I do have a bit of a gymnastic background but I NEVER trained anything on the parallel bars during that time. It wasn't until I came across crossfit that 1st saw parallettes. I then made a set and kept them in my living room working things like L-sits, in & outs, and the likes.. Since that time I taught myself how to press and hold handstands, planche positions, and to consistantly and proficiently perform other balance/control moves. I have now moved onto the "big bars" and I continue my training with those. I realize now how stubborn my determination is. How stubborn is yours...?
