Interview with TheSupersaiyan

Vass the SuperSaiyan PlancheRecently I was lucky enough to interview a guy who is a big inspiration for many people around the world, as well as for me. He calls himself TheSupersaiyan. He developed pretty decent levels of strength and mastery in calisthenics. So let’s dive into this interview.

AZ: Hi, Vass! Tell our readers about yourself.

TheSupersaiyan: Hey, I’m 23 years old and I’m great fan of feats of bodyweight strength as you can see from my videos. I love in particular everything related to planche and handstand. Pushing movements are my favorites including all variations of planche push-up, handstand push-up, one arm handstand and so on. However, I also like pulling movements such as front lever, one arm pull up, back lever, and everything that is practiced on gymnastic rings. I wanna be the most multi-purpose as I can be.
