Learn how to do a Human Flag
The human flag is arguably one of the most impressive feats of strength not only in the calisthenics world, but in all forms of training. It certainly is Jacko’s favourite and not just because it’s changed his holiday photo’s forever! Do you remember the first time you saw one? Did it even look possible or was it the product of some photoshop trickery?
Maybe it still looks impossible to you, but that’s exactly what we do here at the School of Calisthenics; we help you redefine your impossible.
The truth is that if you have the right training methods and exercise progressions, the human flag is not as impossible as it might look. The secret is that if you push and pull with opposite arms at maximal intensity and can connect that force through your whole body, then you too can appear to become weightless.
How long it will take you to learn the human flag will depend on how much strength you start with. For some it might be a matter of putting in the work over a period of time to build the high level strength required. For others, it could simply be a matter of learning how to connect the dots and teaching your brain to move in a new way.
Either way, the first step is to believe that the human flag is possible for you and we are here to show you have to master it.
The journey will require you to develop mobility, stability and strength and the results will do more than impress your friends. You will be more robust and the incredible upgrades to your body will open up lots of other exciting movement opportunities.
We know how to teach you the most direct route to a human flag and we’ve coached hundreds of people to do it. If you’re ready to take on the challenge of this bodyweight icon, then we’re here to support you every step of the way.
