    Other/Mixed Help me optimize my bodyweight/kettlebell routine.

    Hi, I'd like to ask you guys for help in organizing my full body bodyweight/kettlebell routine. My main goal is hypertrophy, explosiveness and muscular endurance. I know these aren't the ideal tools for such goal, but I'm not trying to get huge or anything since I'm pretty content with my...
  2. Other/Mixed Thought Experiment: Programming for OCR

    Was wondering how people on here would use StrongFirst principles and other approaches to program for obstacle course racing. This was something I did years ago, with some moderate success (top 20 placing in shorter races and completion of OCR lengths all the way up to Spartan Ultra). But I...

    Bodyweight Bodyweight lessons learnt overseas

    Hey all, I'm on the way back from a month over seas. I did not have access to a gym and I was forced to be limited to a local outdoor calethstenics gym. Here are some takeaways 1) Eccentrics is a legitimate way to bulk- I am pretty proficient in bodyweight training and I was worried that I...
  4. Bodyweight Pre-Shower 3-10 min simple BW workout routine

    Hi guys, from the title of my thread it's more or less clear what I'm looking for. But let me explain to you my goals and reasons. With 4 kids running around me (actually 2 are still toddlers), work, service and other responsibilities it's more and more difficult for me to set apart time for...

    Hello Bodyweight enthusiast and Instructors - Hope you all are doing fabulous. Been a bit since Ive been active on the forum or writing article which use to be a monthly task. This has been a busy year as my only child heading off to college this next week. :confused: new stage/journey. Any way...
  6. Other/Mixed Program Ideas for Upcoming New Father

    Greetings all. I have viewed this forum for a few years and loved getting tips and tricks from the wealth of knowledge our members have. My wife and I are expecting our first child this fall. I know sleep will be limited and energy will not be as steady or high for me as it currently is. I am in...

    Bodyweight Bodyweight Practitioners: Conditioning / Skill balance

    For those that have ever spent extended time as exclusively bodyweight / calesthenics practitioners, how did you split your training between conditioning and skill work? Whenever I get the notion to head fully in the bodyweight training direction, I have a hard time coming up with an approach...

    Bodyweight Fat Loss at home?

    Hey! I’m limited to my bodyweight for several months, which is fine because my OAPU and Pistol could use some attention. I just want to get leaner (lose my love handles), stronger and get some good cardio in. I love Naked Warrior, but I’m going to be doing this for a while so I was thinking that...
  9. Bodyweight How to run 5 miles, do 500 pushups, 500 squats in 1 workout

    There is a Crossfit WOD called Shawn that I've been interested in doing since I first heard about it. Basically, you run 5 miles, but after each 5-minute interval you have to do 50 pushups and 50 air squats. I've trained for strength for many years. I've also run 10 miles before, but never...

    Bodyweight Step Ups - How hard are they really? Compared in ratio to Pull Ups/Dips?

    I'm at intermediate level (already can do muscle ups, pistol squats,...) and I'm using strict (only slight heel touch) deep step up as my primary "heavy" leg movement (like pull ups for back). I prefer them to pistol squats since I can hardly get close to muscular failure with pistol squats...

    Other/Mixed Working out when traveling

    Hey all, Just got word that I might be overseas for a whole month... Does not seem that I will have access to a gym as of now.. Since I do mainly Bodyweight Im not that concerned as all I need is a jump rope and a pullup bar. The one thing I need is dumbells/kettlebells for accessory work...

    Other/Mixed Adding Calisthenics to Barbell 5x5 Linear Progression

    Hey all, I'm coming back to lifting after a couple of months of break due to health problems I encountered. I started doing a 5x5 Linear Progression program to increase my strength with the basic movements (squat, bench, deadlift, row, overhead press) back to my previous levels. But with the...

    Other/Mixed what would you tell your 18 year old self about training

    Anyone ever thought what you would do diff if you could go back to age 18? I would tell myself to Deadlift and about someone named Pavel....

    Bodyweight Pavel's bodyweight training

    Anyone know if Pavel has any non-minimalistic Bodyweight reccomendations? I mastered the Naked Warrior and I want a more comprehensive Bodyweight program. Im a Kavadlo Bros/Convict conditioning guy but, as a Pavel fanatic ,I want to know his opinions on Calithstenics Thanks
  15. 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...
  16. 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.
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
