Spear the Fish - With Video

Here you'll find a discussion thread for each of the canonical and major non-canonical shovelglove moves. If you have questions or comments about any of these moves, just update the existing discussion for it. If you have a new move, add a new discussion (preferably with the name of your new move in the title). Ideally there will be just one discussion thread per move that everyone adds to, but it's no tragedy if a little bit of redundancy creeps in.

Spear the Fish - With Video

Post by phayze » Mon Sep 28, 2009 7:31 am

Inspired by this thread, I've come up with a little something special to share.

I think this move is pretty simple and it's got a little bit of everything: upper-body, lower-body, balance, coordination, explosiveness , cardio - it's a one-stop-shop!

The production was a but rushed on this one, so let me know if you think it needs some polish - I'm tempted to do it over again, but I've been really wanting to share this move with the class so I couldn't wait for perfection. Does it need more explanation? Be honest, I'm very receptive of constructive criticism.

Gonna have to try this...

You've developed quite a group of alternative moves. Nice work!

Phayze,

You've set a high bar with your previous videos, but I think this one is definitely up to that standard! Very clear, and way better than any version of the move I've tried myself. It's a very natural, uncontrived way of getting both some coordination and the legs into the picture in a big way. And the way you do it, at least, it's not at all doofy looking. It's almost elegant -- if one can use such a word to describe jumping around with a sledgehammer.

Thank you!

Reinhard

This was an *awesome* workout. I tried it out this morning and it really does everything -- strength, balance, and cardio. Nice! I'll be using this one long-term for sure. :D

Only you could get away with that term, Reinhard.
