Kevin Lytwyn – Def to mixed grip

Kevin Lytwyn is beast.

He’s a Ring man, 2nd at Commonwealth Games. But a Ring man with great Horizontal Bar. Watch his 14.866 Commonwealth Bronze medal routine. (VIDEO) Tak 1/2 to Def at the END of the routine.

Check what Kevin’s working now.

F Mondays… #jks #gymnastics #turnup #newskill

Many would name Oleg as the man with the best chance to catch Uchimura in the AA. Verniaiev went 90.400 at Blume including a poor FX routine.

The catch?

Oleg’s H Bar is far, far weaker than the King.

On the other hand, Oleg’s improved, no longer looking like a USA J.O. Level 10.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

If the Code changes, however, and I believe it will, this routine could be very low start score in 2017.

Epke – slow motion Kovacs

Our World and Olympic Champion is astonishingly consistent at over bar release moves.
