Can any of you do this?

I'm not some retarded newb asking what workouts i should do just so that I can do this one thing... but it is pretty badass.

This is a screen shot from a video. It shows them start with their feet on the ground, then just pick them up and support themselves horizontally for the 5 seconds shown in the clip.
I've never tried, but it seems like it would be hard as shit.

So can any of you do it?

Not like that, but there's a trick to make it appear that you can hold hourself outward that impresses gullible people.

no I can't do that, my upper body isn't strong enough, but if there are two walls about 6 1/2 feet apart, I can hold myself up with my hands and feet horizontal.

BTW, that's insane

I might be able to if i had the platform with handles and all. I know i can hold myself horizontal on a pole pretty easily. Its probably tougher than it looks though.

yes i can do this. i was a gymnast when i was in highschool and a coach for like 5 yrs. we use to do this all the time. it takes a little upper body strength but it really isnt too hard. you should try it.

Can anybody do the thing where you go from sitting on the ground, and then lift yourself up in the air on your arms while you still have your legs indian style, and then go from that into a hand stand? Does anybody know what im talkin about, or am i just an idiot?
