Hello fellow Assassins, HS PUPETTRY I will start with the creativity goal which should be much more entertaining than pike presses I want to create a short feet-puppet HS routine! I had this idea while working on close tuck HS a few months back and I decided to see how far I could take it about a week ago or so (cf battle log starting from here). A few issues have come up, like where I should to put the puppet's face so that it's visible enough in a straight HS and doesn't get destroyed on kick-up / bail... Progress has been made and I've started shaping a training puppet over the last week-end, and even balanced a wee bit with it! For this challenge I'd like to reach a first milestone, which would be a 20-30s routine, no music / no voice over / no fancy story Just the foundation: working on some leg movement upside down with one or two puppets on my feet. I will start with just one puppet and if I can take both in the air that will be great. For the puppets part, I want to make one more training prototype, still using old socks. I have nicer newer stripey socks but I'm reluctant to sew / glue / cut into them on my first attempt... I'm pretty sure I will make mistakes (I already screwed an old one up). At some point I'd like to test things like foot-controlled flapping wings/arms maybe. But that's clearly for a later, more advanced, engineering stage I will keep it simple for now. But happy to hear ideas and advice, I'm making some changes on the bird following Mad Hatter's advice. For the HS part, I'm planning to work with puppets at least twice a week and more if I can, whether as part of my existing workouts or in short separate sessions. I will work mostly on: tuck HS, endurance, movement discovery (what works with puppets and what doesn't). I'll report regularly on progress and make a final video by the end of the challenge – whether it works out or not. I might end up with a video 100% full of bloopers but hey it IS a challenge! HSPU TRAINING NB: It's funny: there is HSPU in HS PUPPETRY (ok never mind ) I will continue my previous challenge and prep myself for HSPUs: The road is long and arduous. I'm currently finishing off Phase 1 – Level 1 (2 more weeks). Same as last challenge, 2 workouts a week and I'll just log my reps/sets/holds for the main exercise. This will be mostly strength work with loads of iso and eccentrics. I'll keep my other practice in my battle log (more handstand, a bit of flexibility, some pull). Have a good challenge everyone!
