Training the Dragon Flag
What’s up DIESELS!
I hope you’re training is going awesome.
During July, I got a wild hair to try Dragon Flags.
The Dragon Flag is the sick core exercise that Silvester Stallone does in Rocky 4 lying on a table. It always looked so stinking hard, I’ve never really tried it.
However, I decided to give it a whirl a few weeks back, and to my surprise, I was
actually pretty close to pulling one off!
I enlisted the help of a former coaching client in the Grip Task Force, Rick Geise. Rick is AWESOME at Dragon Flags and can do them with LOTS of extra weight added to his ankles. Cray man!
Well, after just a couple weeks, I’ve gone from doing singles from the top position, to doing doubles from the top
position, and 2 Saturdays, I was even able to accomplish this: Click Here to See Jedd’s Dragon Flag Progress
To give you an idea of how hard this was, after doing this set of Dragon Flag practice, I did a hold for time on the
Crusher, and I ended up getting a bloody nose, for the first time ever, in training.
The crimson flow wasn’t enough to put a damper on my excitement for pulling off this feat.
Recently, after my buddy, Mike Rinderle, talked to me about producing maximum tension in the glutes, I was able to pull off 5 of them!!
It’s been fun pursuing this goal, and I look forward to perfecting it even more.
I can tell you without a doubt – if I hadn’t had guidance from Rick Giese, I’d be nowhere near where I’m at now with these.
Having direction from someone who’s been there makes all the difference, allows you to make fewer mistakes and waste more time, and get to your goals even faster than you ever thought possible!
I’m a core strength amateur, to be honest.
But, I know how to coach people who want stronger hands and a better grip.
If you want help in your Grip Strength training, let’s put our heads together and jump-start your progress.
