  1. Off-Topic Hypertrophy

    Hi, Is it possible to get a good amount of hypertrophy while doing grease the groove? My main goal is to make the muscle bigger. Let's say for something like pullups to make my back bigger. I read some lactic acid is needed for hypertrophy but with grease the groove I always leave some reps...
  2. Bodyweight Combining GTG pushups with push ups training

    Hi everyone! For several weeks I have been doing GTG loaded push-ups 4 times a week and with one push-up training a week (5x12-15) and with each week I notice progress (in the number of push-ups or the time under tension), but I have the impression that only one training session a week is...
  3. Other/Mixed Workout plan for remote workers

    Like many people during the pandemic, I now work full time from home every day. Thinking of doing a GTG program everyday as it breaks up the monotony of work and gets the blood moving. I have a few questions: 1. Thoughts on using a KB? If so what exercises? 2. Goal is to improve strength but...
  4. Barbell Heavy singles and greasing the groove every day?

    I need to get my repetitions for push-ups and pull-ups up for the military but I'd also like to increase my strength on the Bench, Squat, and Deadlift. I came up with the idea that I'd warm up to a heavy single for a barbell movement and continue to grease the groove pushing or pulling for the...
  5. 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...

    Kettlebell Did I GTG Wrong?

    Hi everyone, Wondering if I can get some feedback. I've been wanting to get stronger with my kettlebell press so I decided I would Grease The Groove. I was using a 20kg and got my max reps (13 left, 13 right). Initially, I started doing 5 reps (40%) every hour throughout the day roughly 7-9...

    Bodyweight Learning Splits by "Greasing the Groove"?

    Hello, I'm using isometric stretching three times a week from several months. From Pavel's books I learned that to achieve splits you should build strength. Unfortunately I have problems with relaxing my groins, so maybe I should applicate GTG for building strength in my groins?

    Other/Mixed GTG vs. Easy Strength volume

    Hi all, I'm curious about the comparison of recommended volume between Naked Warrior and Easy Strength. As far as I recall from the books, both programs are daily training. Easy Strength suggests a volume of about 10 reps per day. About NW, there are no specific volume guidelines as far as I...

  12. Other/Mixed Questions about Grease the Groove

    Does Grease the Groove (GtG) have carryover? If I become better at doing pull-ups doing GtG will that improve my deadlift? Is GtG more applicable to exercises that have a large skill component such a pull-ups than exercises that do not have a large skill component such as leg press? Does GtG...

    Bodyweight Volume threshold - pull ups and elbows

    Hi all, My elbows start to complain if my pull-ups or chin ups exceed a certain volume threshold (generally around 30 or so in a session). I have tried various tactics, slow and steady, breaking down the reps in varied ways (ladders, gtg etc) rotations of grips etc but elbows just do not...

    Bodyweight Combining GTG with super slow pushup

    Does such a combination make sense? With my 260 lbs my max is 10 normal pushups, so I normally grease the groove with 4 normal pushups. However when I go really slow, say 20 seconds down and 20 seconds up, then 1 rep is my max (sometimes only the negative!). Does it make sense to do the super...

    Bodyweight Fail to reach 10 reps mark in gtg

    I've been doing pistol squat weightened, pull up weightened and one arm push up 6x a week using the gtg method. Every time I hit 10 reps (after doing half of the max every day, 4 to 5 series of 1 to 5 reps) I increase the weight, as Pavel teach in the gtg. I can make easy 5x5, with 2 min rest...

    Hi all, this is my first post and I hope I put it in the right place. First off, I am a soldier and am required to pass a fitness test of high rep push ups and sit ups. I am using Grease the groove to up my number of reps for this event. I had read that GtG only works for 2-3 weeks until...

    Barbell Heavy deadlift singles for maintaining strength and muscle mass

    Being 'in between programs' and having made less time to train recently, I've been seizing opportunities to do GTG sets of pull-ups and heavy deadlift singles (typically about 5 or 6) when I get the chance (usually every three days or so) and I'm wondering if performing occasional heavy...
  20. Kettlebell S&S with GTG

    I want to train to a full depth pistol squat, but am also finding S&S to be extremely effective. Can I do S&S four or five times per week while GTG on pistol squat? Or are they better left separate?
