From what I can tell GSP doesn't have the strength to do a full planche. He was doing tuck planches on the little red parallel bars he had in one of the vids in this thread which is like the first step to a full planche progression and he was having a hard time with them.
For what GSP does this kind of basic gymnastic training is great, and he could definitely do a full planche if he dedicated himself to it(probably take him like 3 months to be able to do it, he's gsp afterall), unfortunately there isn't much use for that since he can get the same benefits from doing a tuck planche and not have to lose mass in his legs :P he wont be doing a planche with those tree trunk legs of his.
