I have read in Mr. Tsatsouline's works that...

I have been reading recently about Herschel Walker and the Great Gama’s training styles. Both involve very high volumes of bodyweight training exercises (obviously a bit extreme but the principles can still be applied). I am gonna give this a go and focus on push up variations, squat/lunge...

Happy Friday everyone!
I have a recurring issue with my one arm push-up, that I wanted to share with you in hopes of some feedback. I have had biceps tendonitis off and on for years, to varying degrees. Oddly enough, I tend to do fine with overhead movements for the most part, but something...

What do you prefer to do between sets?
Passive or Active Rest ?
Passive : Do nothing, seat etc
Active : Walking, Stretching etc
During passive rest I lose my energy to training faster than in active.
What is the best option in your opinion ?
Can you explain why ?
What is your experience ?

But how it works on static position ?
I read that isometric exercises are good...
Whether a 50% of the maximum number of repeating is a 50% of maximum effort ?
It is about "GTG" method
I'm confused about something.
I tested my max in One arm push ups (legs together)
I got 4 reps in good form so I decided to do everyday a few sets of 2 reps (50% of max reps)...
So has anyone tried/gotten/purchased @Karen Smith’s new program Refine? if so what do you think? Is it a specific plan with reps, sets, weekly breakdown or is it giving you tools to create your own focused approach to bodyweight/kettlebell exercises?

Hello I got a TRX not too long ago.
So far I have been loving what it's doing for my rows, pistols, and support work (like with parallel bars). Rows on the TRX are a whole separate ballpark than Australian pull ups from a bar, and way easier on my forearms/wrists. I'm really looking forward to...
