The text of the interview (translated automatically): 

if you feel like your genetic genetically not if it doesn't fit genetically to Calisthenics then don't do it you know look if that doesn't make you happy yo gorillas welcome to the fourth episode of the athlete insider podcast today we have a really really special guest somebody like a lot of people look up to from you I know with over 200 thousands yeah like around 200 thousand followers on Instagram and YouTube I combined and like really crazy athlete from Ukraine I'm really happy to be here with you welcome Vitalii well done thanks thanks for the invitation and thanks for taking the interview it's like really corner to me and yeah so let's go let's go buddy perfect we have two parts of the of the interview the first part will be some question from me and the second part will be the questions from the community because there were quite some people who had some questions for you about your planches about your your workout your nutrition etc so we will come to this afterwards but first like um situation you're on a birthday party and somebody approaches you you don't know this person and this person doesn't know calisthenics how do you describe what you do who you are right so make new friends especially if they are not into calisthenics I usually just refer to tell that I'm doing sports and I'm in so filming I'm a apart from that I'm a student of the University of cinema arts and so filming is like me my main activity and yeah I don't prefer to call myself to present myself as a professional calisthenics athletes and not to talk about something we'll know like serious but when the person wants me to describe it in details then I jump deeper and explain more about each activity so another thing is that I always avoid actually giving my social medias you know like Instagram all this stuff to unknown people like to new friends because every time they get my know like Instagram they put me hi for no reason just because of the numbers but I don't I don't mean that I don't want to get the respect I actually want so much but they respect by my human qualities instead of just numbers no so here we go I'm just I'm just be shy and you know like all myself is just a sportsman and gansan creator that's it okay because yeah I can imagine that many people like treat you different if they see your your social media account and also because sorry hmm I'm sorry bro I bet you know like it's usually annoys that people like really get you high because if you're you know like numbers and it does I don't think that it's not normal it's normal but I just don't want the things to be this way that's that's it yeah I get it like when I see the photo you have in at the at your wall at the World Cup how were you its World Championship 2017 that's the only time I went to like this sort of competition and I think I got the 5th place if I'm not mistaken yet I was the fifth it was my first World Street workout championship in Moscow and I was 15 years old I think 50 yes often that's crazy crazy really biggest respect for that and I'm like I'm interested in how what kind of childhood do you have to do to be on such a big stage with 15 years old like when most people are going through the city and playing pokemon go or something and you're like on such a high level how did you get there right so my calisthenics career begins begins from the childhood I used to grow up in a small Ukrainian city in southern Ukraine and the only option except for school was just like messing around in the streets with the friends and I tried my hands on some different sport like football volleyball and even freerunning and actually freerunning was like the most appealing appealing sport for me I'd just go outside doing some flips for day and just forgive about time you know and among my friends and my own beast you know like kind of free runners it was nothing serious but still there was one guy who was a member of local street workout team here in my city and he insisted me to take it more serious and train harder and to become a calisthenics athletes because he he saw the potential in me I was able to do some some sort of you know like master laps maybe some instance and all that stuff but I didn't take it seriously it was back in the days in 2011 and then into into twelve there was a big competition in my city like in Horner of opening the new calisthenics part and the performances of the guys which is so like in real life they blew my mind and I fell in love in this important since that day from 2012 I've been doing calisthenics for 80 years 3 and that's my favorite sport Wow crazy so no gymnastics background no Roy it's a common question I usually get this question and the fun thing about that is that I don't even have a gymnastics in my city now so it's um it's impossible to for me to practice gymnastics from one hand it's like better because street workout is not that you know like street workout is mostly about the community about you know like just traveling around the world and enjoying your life and all of the things and genetically something like way more serious and so you have to devote your health and everything just for one sport and I'm glad that I'm doing Street workout instead of gymnastics that's it it's like it's the first time I hear this difference like you did differentiate between the lifestyle of a gymnast and a street workout athlete and it's true like calisthenics and street Webb our lives from traveling from making photos in front of monuments on places et cetera years that's great and like let's go back to 2011-2012 how did you start to work out you had some small Fitness background like fitness what I mean with like freerunning you also have like some some strength but how did you start to work out right so I came to no - you know like - just to make friends make new friends Street workout at least and all this stuff and maybe to join the local team know but I was shy I didn't expect that so much so I just came to train and to train with you guys and [Music] they were actually interested in me my friends introduced me to these guys and I made some new friends and ever like okay so if you do I don't remember the the the number but maybe like 50 pushups and 30 dips on the P bars and something around like 15 push pull-ups on the bar if you do that then you enter the d-team but actually you know like it was the first time for them they were just like make it fun and pretend that they're serious like t and all out so they challenged me I did that no like so easily and from that day I joined the team and started training with them but actually most of my trainings were on my own I was just focusing on YouTube tutorials and I was gaining the experience by by just attempts and by just you know like searching for some information in on YouTube and the way it is so they didn't help me that much in learning something but we were growing up as a community know it it's like it's not it's very different to do Street workout in 2012 and the duration that is the current situation of calisthenics you know is where it's not comparable because in 2012 you don't have such goals you know like to be a world champion or all of that stuff we just share the moments with the with the guys and do your stuff to be better physically and to grow up is a community and that's it but now if you start calisthenics you kind of realize that you have the possibility to travel around the world and compete in some international camps so that was like a tough period but I've been through it and my patients in my life to this sport really like brought me to to the person which I am not awesome yeah it's funny that they just like made up a challenge for you to join the the team so you started with with basics in the beginning you like with push-ups pull-ups dips yep so I've been doing basics for like a couple of years maybe like one in half a year but apparently I was like learning some elements for example like handstand push-ups one-armed pool and all of that stuff and then I started learning like Blanche you know but my road to Blanche was so weird because it wasn't like constantly I wasn't constantly progressing I was just you know like focusing on that element for a couple of weeks then I postponed this element and focus on you know like other other stuff and because of that I used to to know like learn that elements from zero like maybe five times and somehow it became so annoying to me that I can't get this element I can't get French and I decided to train constantly and not just keep my trainings and focus only on one element so after three months I was able to hold a real straddle planche for like three four seconds and I was super happy because it was so surprising for me I didn't even expect the result to to to be like that fast you know and that's it basically okay so it shows like basically from your experience that if you do a move but you don't do it 200% long-term you won't achieve it and you will lose it again again and again but if you commit fully you will get it exactly exactly but at the same time I did a mistake I was focusing only on planche like I got that element and so like after that I was doing only planchas enhancements and I was lack of front we were strange and all this like pull strange so I recommend everybody to like focus on different elements but to train constantly to be like a you know like not just wrong at one specific element but to be completes athletes so did you start with dynamics right from the beginning or was it something that came later it was something that didn't exist for like a couple of years for the first years of my career we used to watch like you know like all of these foul beasts all these static piece and just train static and all these strange moves we didn't even know that that there were there were some like most of dynamic and all of this stuff and when it became popular in around like 2015 maybe yeah I started trying I started like doing some basic stuff like 360s and so from the first time I was I wasn't happy about this knowledge innovation in our sport because it was something completely different from the statics completely completely different from the things that I love for which I love the sport but after that I realized that if I don't train dynamics and if I don't make mix that I think with aesthetics then I I'll just do it from a step and I want you know like go for some big comps so there was no like choices and I started practicing dynamics and after that I realized that it's even know like from time to time it's even more interesting than just doing static so now I realized if you put these two things together then it's more interesting and there are some days that you feel like you you can do a lot of statics and there are some days that you can on the contrary do some more than image moves so it's even it's even better for the training process because of the varieties and all of this stuff so something like that from first time I was like shocked and I didn't like dynamics but nowadays all of the guys and including me we are through in all of this stuff together okay so if you could choose that Street workout competitions don't have dynamics or or yes so no dynamics or dynamics included what would you choose I would choose that extent the name explode okay that's that's something that you can't you know like good off that's the whole that's all of these things make sure together this is one sport and it can't be the calisthenics can't be without the name store without statics it's all like one thing that we love so much okay where did you start to work out like this team where did they train did they train outside in a park or was it also inside in a whole something right so um when I was interferon II I I wasn't I didn't care that much you know so I was just throwing my flips and all of this stuff but then when I started doing calisthenics we had the callisthenic spot the new calisthenics spots as I told you which was opened in 2012 so the the real struggle was like the winter period because winner in Ukraine is like super crazy we can have like - 10-15 degrees and snow and all this stuff which is basically which basically leads to struggle and challenging times challenging periods of trainings so we used to practice at home and practice at Fitness James you know like with all of this power lifting stuff which was actually not about calisthenics but we we used to go to these gyms and do some static moves right here and just do whatever not to drop the skills you know during the winter period and it actually played a huge role in my static so usually in when it - when it comes to winter periods I usually like do some playing just front leaver instance forever so that's it do you also support your work out with with weights like weighted calisthenics or Street workout but also like Fitness like bodybuilding weights I used to do it when I was maybe like 13 12 years old I used to do it from for the when I was starting calisthenics like for first couple of years I don't know it was just because of my curiosity you know nothing more but currently I'm just working with my weight without any you know like additional weight so now just freestyle and all of the moves that includes that requires only my body and that's it okay because I guess many people are asking a is it possible to get such a physique like that you have without weights and also be is it possible to make so much progress without any weights so you would say yes in both cases I would say that it's not that simple you know it depends on the genetics so my genetics is like kind of I don't know so if you for example tall and thin like from your from the day that you were born you know like it's hard to explain but it all it all comes to genetics you know so um somehow I did my body just using you know like just doing calisthenics but for other guys who are much taller and whom genetics is not that you know like it's not similar but it might be a real challenge to to you know like to grow physically without any additional waves so it depends only on genetics that's what I can say okay if you really see that you've been doing calisthenics for like four years five years and you don't see like a real progress in real basics no physical progress so maybe that's maybe that's the reason that your genetics is not that good for that actually when I started calisthenics I didn't even have the gall to you know like I didn't have anybody goals I don't I until now I don't want to be like big or something I'm just focusing on crystal static and dynamic movements and that's it so I don't do calisthenics to be to become bigger but somehow I I managed to build such body because my genetics okay because you answer you just answer to questions from the community from I am zero and JD can 24 do you think your genetic helped you to become the beast that you are now and yeah like um you know like yeah definitely yes but the percentage of you know like hard work and my engines is like 70 and 30 70 percent of like hard work and 30 percent of genetics because I'm not tall person on 168 centimeters my highest 108 68 centimeters I don't know how much it is it may be like five and five and five or something like that I don't know like I'm not I'm not a tall person so yeah it definitely helps it definitely helped me to improve my statics for example if you like hundred and eighty centimeters higher then it's much higher then it's much like harder to achieve like a huge statics but actually there are such beasts and I respect them so much and I understand how hard is that for them to achieve like the same planche let's say the same plane so it I can do like I can learn planche in like 3 or 4 months and for some people it takes like four two years maybe like even more no so I respect the guys who are much taller than me and come genetics is like not that who doesn't know like these guys who don't feel who don't fit the callistonian genetics so I think that yeah a certain percentage is like of my success in calisthenics is because of the genetics right yes like undoubtable it's like in many cases like a lot of people have some potential from the genetics from their background anything but if you don't work for it it's useless like if you don't put the work on top of the genetics it's worthless and that's something that you did the work you've worked hard yeah bro no like that I think like this way if you think that your genetics is not for street work out so it's not a good excuse to like go and shout on the each corner that's you're not know like the best person to do Street workout and all this up because if I go to basketball and sell to these guys that ok you're better than me and basketball only because you're taller then it's it doesn't make sense no like it's pointless so the same question so the same stuff happens in street workout if you feel like you're Network genetically not if it doesn't feed genetically to color settings then don't do it you know look if that doesn't make you happy so that's a good thing of course it's harder but if you are not willing to put the extra work in it then it's not the right sport for you because you will wine and you will cry and like the whole time that's like a good point he'll respect that what's your current weight my current weight is 65 kilograms kgs I don't know how much lbs that's like a little a little bit more than a double of it's like I guess it's like 140 something lbs yeah and like to to maintain your physique do you fall follow a diet plan what what is your diet like no bro no actually I ate a lot of like you know sweet products and all the cakes and all of this stuff all of the biscuits and I don't know like it's impossible for me to keep the diets I I love to eat so much and yeah I'm just you know like focusing on my trainings only not a diet but if you want to build you know like raw body and all of this stuff you definitely should keep the diet and search up for the information and all this stuff that's really important but in my case I don't care about my body no like that much so I eat just whenever whatever I want okay that's a good thing do you think it will become harder when you get older sorry bro do you think it will become harder when you get older with nutrition with become as keeping the physique got your question yeah definitely but I'm ready to take this challenge and so to keep going to keep you know like work working harder and just not put this not just I won't put the age as an excuse because I love the sport so much and I understand that if I gonna be like 20 23 even 25 you know like all of this stuff if I'm gonna be 25 years old it's not gonna be the same as the way it is right now when I'm 18 is like the peak of my career no because my body but no like from the other hand who knows yeah no like I'm ready to take all the challenges that I'm not gonna be as that I'm not gonna have as much energy as I have now so I think yeah it's gonna be harder but I definitely don't plan to quit from the gaming too like no disappear from calisthenics I'll just keep going that's good maybe it's like a thing like with Heights if you're tall and you're taking it as an excuse maybe it's the same thing with age like of course you have to put in maybe a little bit more work maybe a little bit more focus on the diet but you can still achieve big goals and not take it as an excuse yeah what would you say is the hardest move you've run so far if it comes to dynamics maybe it's the side slippery grip you've probably seen that on my previous video Instagram video and when it comes to statics maybe it's different durations of multis or narrow grip clenches I don't know I don't have one like you know like the strongest static elements but obviously I'm much stronger in planchas than in other static moves but I don't have the specific like strongest elements in my spectrum of skills no okay but let's take like the the narrow plant for example how did you go like how did you work out work out you to get there right so the fan think about the narrow grip planche it's kind of my style my thing that's that that I can do like on the high level I think so the thing is that these narrow grip branches are not that hard for me they can be from time to time they can be even either easier than the normal planes for me know like especially in 2018 higher it was like to do a foot an arrow great full planche it was like easier for me then to hold a normal full planche so that is just because I loved that grip I first of all I love narrow grip instance and out of that I tried to do some like new plancha's and all this stuff in 2006 16 even if I am not mistaken yeah and so I don't know somehow it turned like in my specific elements in my specific combinations I just because I love this grip I don't know I practiced like really a lot of narrow grip fool Blanche's in straddle and and so narrow clip handstand and all of this stuff just because I love it and a lot of the feeling of holding that element I don't know just like my favorite element you know when I when I'm holding it I don't know like I feel I feel that this is much easier for me and this is much more interesting for me than the regular forms of this element so somehow yeah I train like these those branches and it can be even easier for me than the normal page okay so do you want to share how you you get there maybe like from the moment you get your straddle planche in like 2012 or around there how did you get to the maybe full planche I'd like to the next step what is your workout you get there right so um when I got my first strangle planche then I focused on some variations like blanche press Blanche push-ups and all this stuff and even though I didn't have much experience back in the days I realized that I want that I want train like that I want you know like go to the full planche like directly after straddle planche because I needed to practice I needed you improve my straddle planche so that I can hold it to know like for 50 seconds for 15 seconds without any shaking and all of this stuff so if you guys want to learn the full planche and you can hold a straddle planche then you better focus on the form of your straddle straddle planche and to bring that you know like to bring that elements into the new level to hold like it longer and to do some some sort of push-ups and to do some right leg press and all this stuff and so when you feel when you feel like confidence in straddle planche you'll just try the full page and maybe hold it for 2-3 seconds and if you feel if you feel like strong if you feel you're full if you feel you're a straddle planche like so confident and so I don't know how to say if you feel confident in straddle planche then you can enter to the full planche that that is just know like the question of your feelings if you don't feel so then keep improving your keep improving the easier operation that's it okay I did you have any problems with with injuries yeah bro and fun fact is that is that my serious injury wasn't connected with the calisthenics it was connected with the doing flips I used to do a lot of backflips in 2016 and I heard my abs and it really stopped me from from trainings it really made me stop you know like and be out of trainings for like two months maybe three months and every single element that I tried to do especially frankly we're all you know like human click or even the LCD it was so painful for me because my abs hurt and I didn't even know like realize the how did I get that energy injury but somehow I came to the point that I used to do a lot of backflips because when I healed from that injury and I tried to backflip I I felt that that pain like one more time but currently I can unable to do like any elements including like backflips and all this stuff and I don't hurt my abs but from time to time if I train too much front leavers I can feel the pain a little pain in my apps and death that is not the best feeling so far it was just you know like huge injury in my life and apart from that of course I had some like small injuries of raised shoulders and all this time but it was nothing serious so so yeah just rested and then it was come and so I did actually some mmm I actually went to hospital to like check if everything is ok with my abs and all of this stuff so yeah I'm hundred percent healthy and you know like it's found that I when I started calisthenics in 2012 it was all you know like under the minds of healthy lifestyle and all of this stuff maybe even now some people say that Street workout and calisthenics is about healthy lifestyle I think this point is not that clear because actually when it rained freestyle professionally and many competes in some big events then it's not healthy lifestyle at all I know it all connected miss we really know like injuries and that's not you know like this that's definitely not a big healthy lifestyle so from one point it makes you strong physically but another the way it is in gymnastics you know it makes you like really really [Music] and confidence about your injuries now sir it's like most sports in my opinion become unhealthy when you do them to the max for performance and you don't like you don't listen to your body anymore because the success screams louder it's difficult I can imagine yes somebody asked like TX LJ Street workout asks how do I prevent calluses with freestyle like the ripped hands etc oh actually this kind of interesting question I used to struggle with that through that problem like a lot the first advice is to cut your you know like ribs from each session and the second advice is not to push your freestyle not to push the dynamics to max know like during sessions maybe like first 20 25 maybe first half an hour of the training you do like dynamics and statics and after that only like statics and after that your head your hands will get used to that and so you'll be able to to Train freestyle like for longer time like currently I don't have such knowledge I don't have such problems just because my hands get you got used to that and I can't my ribs like from each session that's it so you mean with that that you cut off the skin that David Vasquez asks how long do you train each day and what is your training split right so basically I train in turn like one day a rest and one the next day I train my training is basically consisted of consists of first hour I do static splice dynamics you know like just competition combos all that stuff then I trained only statics and for Froelich half an hour and so the last minutes the last like half an hour of my session I pick up only one static elements and do and no like practice till till I'm done you know just about at the end of the training I just pick one static element and doing all of this no like exercises for example front leaver if I if I take front leaver at the end of the session I do like front raises you know like Chuck front leaver pull-ups and all of this stuff if we talk about Blanche I just doing full Blanche bracelet presses and hold till next and maybe some push-ups yeah so you're still do basics because I think a lot of people who are not that advanced they like a lot of people neglect basics I guess I think it's my opinion but do you still to basics yeah from time to time I do basics basically for front lever because you can't be strong in front leaver if you don't do like no muscle ups pull ups at the end of the session and all this stuff I noticed that you know like usually the guys who are into basics they can hold front lever like easily didn't you notice that so from these points basics really helps for front leaver and so for know like one-arm pull-ups and all this stuff which is like so I useful for the gums so yeah from time to time I do push-ups muscle ups maybe even some dips on the peepers just to keep my know like form but so - couple years ago I didn't have that thoughts in my mind and and I was just throwing freestyle and without any basics but currently I'm doing it from time to time okay do you still have a role model that's what I am Zack neo asks do you have like an athlete that's still a role model for you um I don't think so I have friends who inspires me in calisthenics but you know like there is no specific person in my life yet who is like who inspires me like at scale I have some you know like friends who inspires me in a topic for example videography music and you know like some sort of calisthenics but I don't have like only one person especially in calisthenics who who is like who is like really a role model to me I don't know like how how to how to explain that but actually I get motivated from music and from music artists even more from colors in Excel just like the way it is I don't have a role model you know okay do you ever get bored or lack motivation and how do you deal with it is Panagiotis who asks this yes sure like for sure like practically every week I have kind of sessions when I don't feel myself like a hundred percent maybe mmm I don't even have the strange to like know like to train like to do a simple to do some simple combos and I fail from time to time like you know simple moves and what if every time it happens I realized that I'm a sportsman and professional sportsman and it's normal to to you know like to fail sometimes and not to be in the form and it depends on the day it depends on manufacturers if I for example slept well if I ate well this day and if I'm in a good mood or in a bad mood so I take it easy and so usually when I don't when I'm not able to you know like through some hard elements I'm just putting my favorite music and do some like easy elements and just try to enjoy and keep away the negative thoughts because when you you know like it's so it's so hard to to be always you know like mo during the training and splitting the positive vibes but I try my best to not to you know like start training for no reason but just to keep the positive thoughts in my mind and just to keep going if even if it's like not that even if I don't want to do that at the very moment you know so the key is to keep your training and to train constantly constantly like every session put your efforts to the max and not giving a fuck about you know like be a bad mood and all this stuff because that won't lead you to success no okay then I have somebody ant alone who asks why you're not posting that much even though your content is really really nice and that's something that I know you like this question or you that you would like to answer this question yeah all right so I've been developing myself as a content creator as a filmmaker for like three years straight from 2017 and I'm actually a student of a University of cinema arts and when it comes to content IBK I become so self-critical and I can't let myself to put into put out an average video or like a bad shot just to keep my Instagram act if you know so I [Music] have like you know like the thoughts in my mind so if I put out a new video either on Instagram or on YouTube it should be better in three aspects the first one is calisthenics level I should show a new constant level a new skills and new combos and all this stuff the second aspect is videography and the third one is editing so if each of these aspects like really satisfies me at all then I put out the video and then you know like every time I vanish from Instagram or YouTube for like two or three months everybody is like oh he disappeared from that you know like from that counted life he disappeared from calisthenics at all so he may be he may be dropped some skills and all this stuff then I put out the video with the new level and there they get so emotional and that is that what makes me you know like happy and that but I'm not I don't want to say that I depends on other opinions but still like it makes me happy to put out the new video with the fall new level with the fall you know like videography calisthenics and editing and it makes me happier maybe just not like because of the fact that I've pulled out something new and it it's really on the new level so that's my opinions on the content create like a question that I have do you think you could be even more like bigger on social media if you wouldn't be that perfectionist and like pulling out more content or do you think it's your doing you like yeah just exactly exactly yeah that's the right point I could be like even bigger on the social medias especially in the Instagram I feel it like at scale you know but I don't think that those numbers which I could have will put me will like lead me to happiness so I focus only on the things that I love for example if I love to put only quality content and only like showing the new level and all of this stuff it makes me happy even though I have this hundred sixty eight thousand followers instead of like million or like no like half a million that makes me happy dance I still put out the content delight that I love and I'm still enjoying the property process and so people I think people feel that the same way and that's why they follow me and to get motivated by my videos I think when you post a video do it do you do it for you or for the audience or for the followers no it's like 50/50 of course um if um if you're gonna tell that I don't care about other people opinions at all then I will like you know everybody cares about it but from the other hand I do it for myself too because when I you know like when I try to make better video to make better video than this one I still grow up as a calisthenics athlete and I know like learn some new elements and I even though I'm like I even became become aggressive because I don't you know like because I felt something or the combination is too hard for the Instagram and all this stuff even though I have such moments at the end of the day I put out the new like products with the new level and so that makes me happy that I did it even though you know like I didn't post in a while like I wasn't active on my Instagram for a for a couple of months so that that basically makes me happy and that's why I'm doing it such way wow that's inspiring because I see a lot of people who do social media only for the people outside out there because they think oh I like this challenge will get the most views this this thing like and you like when you watch you when I watch your feet I see that you post a lot of stuff like for example the last post you did you said yeah it's quite artistic like like it won't get the most views but it was a project of your heart like like how I understood it maybe you wanted to go deeper in it yeah exactly it was like actually I wanted to just to shoot like commercial and all of this stuff but then I saw this location and I just dropped some you know like ideas in my mind and I almost like well I'm gonna do it just for our chests like to put out and to get like maybe 14 thousand likes instead of just like 30 or 25 and all this stuff but I'm gonna put out the content that I love like so much and that's gonna be something different but from the other hand you know like I respect those guys for so active on their social medias for post like practically every day because that's hardcore too and I realized that everybody is on different situation and so maybe some people just need to make money and to make their living like of calisthenics you know like there are different situations so I expect each each content creator who is doing that who is doing the things that makes him happy so I don't want to say that I'm doing like things correctly or this is true or this is like false I'm just focusing on the happiness no this kind of strategy makes me happy and for example for the other guys Paulson like two times a day is more preferable so I don't know I have a respect for all the community so here yeah that's great awesome like yeah we're coming to an end these were the best questions that we received and I still have at the end some quick questions that you can answer a quick so what do you prefer a pizza or burger burger burger okay are you a dog or a cat person no sorry do you prefer dogs or cats as a as an animal at home huh I actually prefer dogs when I have a cat so I'm gonna I would like to have a dog sorry cat your paper favorite location for holidays you've been at or just traveling Mounties like any specific mountains you've been at no just like whatever no if it mounted then it's good what would you work as if social media just disappeared like the whole like no Instagram no Facebook no YouTube I just keep training and keep filming you know like four different platforms maybe four not internet but for some like you know like other sources I would just like keep going you know with the with my passions for filming and for calisthenics and I would just do the same thing but for but for other platforms and for other reasons your favorite calisthenics athletes yeah we kind of had that but maybe you still have okay so again can I call the like top three in my opinion comedy with me at scale all right so the first one is Victor I lenses I I'm not saying that those guys are like the best the most complete athletes in the world but I just I just say I'm just not like counting the athletes who inspire me at scale so Victor and Landis inspires me so much in statics especially in front livre and full Blanche then the second 1:10 host license he's actually pretty good at content creator at content creating and all this stuff apart from that super strong in statics and dynamics at the same time he is super complete athlete and the way he put he put his style on his performances I call this not just calisthenics it's something like between art and sport the third one all right [Laughter] um the third one would be I would say Victor calm enough because the way he put you know like statics of calisthenics to the next level motivate me so much weights me so much and recently I reversed I don't know like I watched some videos of ultimate battles three all back in the days in 2017 and I realized that this guy made a huge impact in calisthenics especially in statics so yeah he is the person to to get the motivation from so this is this would be my top three just know like out of my current thoughts okay what was the best calisthenics event you've been at so far actually I hit play I have like two best calisthenics events in my life it's ultimate battles three and four and three and four yes and no ultimate battles two and three and the world of bar heroes Cup in Holland Germany it was here it was really tough and definitely one of the greatest competition in law nice last year right perfect so Alan oh one last question but I already know the answer and dynamics or aesthetics standings okay perfect so before we come to an end how can people get in touch with you how can they how do they find you on social media if you if you like if you mean some to get some advices or all this stuff I try actually to to answer all of the questions some questions on my Instagram if they are constructive and if if I feel like the guy who asked me the question is really interested in calisthenics and the question is really no like makes sense then I answered the question and always try to push the guys to the next level and two points on their mistakes and to know like share some experience so you can either write me on instagram or if it's a commercial offer then you can write me on mail which is under my Instagram perfect so thanks everyone for listening until the end it's like again a really long interview and I really respect everyone who's listening so much but I think it's it was a really really inspiring one thanks Italy Melnick for being here thanks for taking the time and before I leave you the last words to say goodbye to the audience if you liked this
