Wovon man nicht sprechen kann, darüber muß man Schweigen.
Better yet, how did you first decide, "hey, I need to try a backflip!"
And did you hit your head the first time you tried?
Doing it is impressive, but the trial and error would be my weakness.
You should look into Olympic lifting sometime as I think you might have the athletic inclination along with the strength to do quite well.
friggin awesome. i could probably do a backflip if i had the balls to try it...but i dont
Not letting me download it, saying too much has gone through my IP - must be the proxy.
pretty impressive. i'm working on doing no footed pushups, like that guy in that breakdancing video someone posted a while back. they're definitely not as easy as that guy made it look
Haha that is awesome man, I cant even do backflip on a trampolene

It was breakdancing that got me into weightlifting. I joined the society at university at the begining of the year just gone, and found I wasnt strong enough to hold myself in positions, so hit the gymOriginally Posted by twm
That was sweet. Doing backflips is all about leg strength.
Did you practice on a trampoline a lot before attempting it on the ground or what?

That was ****ing sweet. I've done back flips on trampolene before but i don't think i could conjure up the balls to do it on the ground like that.
That is f*cking nuts! I'm thinking that would be impossible for me at around 195lbs, you did it at 280!!! Granted you are also a huge block of muscle, that still seems like a crazy feat of strength.

ROFL, oh man - I usually wait until I'm on the freeway to do that. What an idiot! -teufy doing what he does best.
You aren't strong enough or pretty enough to train in the evenings with us...better stick to noon workouts with the rest of the geriatrics. - pup

But you dont look as muscular there, as in your picture. I am sure its the angle.
A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

You could be a pro wrestler for sure.
Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

Great Vid, I think its cool that us bigger people do things to show that size doesn’t mean we are awkward and immobile, for my part i am working on my handstands, a 7 foot handstand is pretty rare, i'd say as rare as a 280lbs backflip? I'd love to be able to backflip, but i think i'm too long, too far to go all the way around. But we'll see i'm still young. ha.

if you tuck in your knees you could get atleast half a rotation as well. Probably land on your back, but i'll look impressive. Great job, guy!

You should do some more videos, that was cool.
Used to be able to do one of those - biggest regret was giving up gymnastics when I was a teenager.
If I did that...I would break something.
