    Other/Mixed Adding Calisthenics to Barbell 5x5 Linear Progression

  5. Other/Mixed Tips for hard-living type to be?

    Not that hard-living type you probably expect - let me provide some background. I live in a rural area, so there is a lot of manual work to do during late spring, summer and early autumn, even without my ambitious quest. Moreover, I am going to build a house for me and my growing family. In...
  6. Bodyweight Bodyweight Program

    Going on vacation, won’t have my kettlebells for two weeks. Do you all usually stick to Naked Warrior if all you have is your bodyweight, or is there something else you do? Just looking to maintain my strength, maybe lose some body fat.
  7. Bodyweight OAPU GTG - When am I done?!

    I've read NW and love the difference pistols and OAPUs have made to my strength. I've been doing GTG for both for the past 6 weeks and have reached a comfortable 2x5 (each leg) on pistols and can do a single set of 4 on OPAUs. My max on OPAUs is probably a single set of 5. I've been upping...
  8. Bodyweight Can you grease the groove push-ups and bench press at the same time?

    My goal with push-ups is to gain reps and build muscular endurance, and while I've found success with greasing the groove, I have abandoned bench pressing so it doesn't interfere with my recovery. But I'd love to increase my strength on the bench press. Pavel Tsatsouline recommends only...

    Bodyweight Pull-ups not pulling their weight

    Howdy! So I think I've identified that my back does not seem to respond to high-volume work. I'm 15 years old for the 25th time, doing S&S + some calisthenics on top of kung fu/MMA. I was inspired by a post which involved what the commenter called 'Easy Strength Lite' (which I cannot find...

    Bodyweight Calisthenics vs Deadlift

    Ever since reading the book "Building the Gymnastic Body" I was amazed at the claims by the author. The book was written by a gymnastics coach by the name of Christopher Sommer. He stated that one of his students deadlifted 181kg/400lbs on his first attempt. The most impressive thing is that the...

    Bodyweight Tactical Pullup Standard - Touching the bar with the upper chest

    I was reviewing the Tactical Pullup Standard: I notice in my own Pullups that I'm lacking the "last 5%" to get my upper chest touching the bar on the top of the Pullup. As a regular deskworker the muscles in my back are probably to weak. Are there support exercise I can do, e.g. some kind of...
