We took everything out for a spin with Samer Delgado, the single dad, American Ninja Warrior competitor, expert trainer you see here (he's the guy flying through the air). Delgado has been doing calisthenics for about five years now. He tells us he was inspired by an Instagram post of a human flag (that mind-boggling thing where you basically go horizontal in the air from your arms). It didn’t take much more than that to get him hooked, “After seeing all the different exercises they were doing I know I had to learn. It just fits who I am.” Though he’ll still get sessions in at the gym, Delgado swears by his calisthenic routine. And though the thought of attempting this stuff may seem little daunting, he promises “there’s no other feeling like having fun while getting stronger and fit all at once.”
When we dug a little deeper into Delgado’s workouts, we asked him how long it took him to nail the handstand, a move that requires a whole ton of strength and just as much patience. After about four months training two or three times a day, he was able to hold one. He followed up by telling us that there’s no such thing as “nailing the handstand." Why? "Because there’s always a way to challenge the skills you have obtained to make the move more advanced.” He then rattled off a list of progressions: One-armed handstands, hallow back handstands, and said there’s always a progression to make. The dude doesn’t stop learning and pushing himself. Good advice. Good sport.
