My elbows and I aren’t on speaking terms.
We used to be good buddies, but ever since I decided it would be a good idea to do the human flag, my elbows have revolted. Here I am learning to do the human flag. I was hoping that I’d be able to hold this for 30 seconds by now. I”m up to about 5 seconds but as you can see, my form leaves A LOT to be desired:
