    Bodyweight OAPU and Pistol form check

    Hi all! I have been doing NW for a while and I am now. The other day I tested and to my surprise... I was able to do a OAPU with my right arm.

    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...

  4. Bodyweight How Low Can You Go? (Naked Warrior)

I stretch before and after sets for a short time now. I use...

  8. Bodyweight One Arm Push Up Physique

    One Arm Pushups, on the floor, have undoubtedly added to my shoulders and triceps. This was achieved through sets of 1-3 through out the day. Never really touched sets of 4-6. While you may not achieve the "pump" like with other pushups, the OAPU does indeed affect the look of one's body...

  19. Bodyweight Ever since Naked Warrior, Ive wondered...

    Ever since Naked Warrior, Ive wondered; should you do one arm one leg push ups on one side then the other? or should I do one day of ‘right arm left leg’ then ‘left arm, right leg’ the next day? and when I’m not working a particular arm or leg, I'll practice tension (e.g. the feedforward loop)
