    Bodyweight Pull Ups & Strong Endurance

    Hi all, I wondered what the updated line of thinking is on Strong Endurance type training with pull ups. Specifically, what are some SF tested and approved applications/programmes? Looking to run this as a standalone minimalist programme for a while and cover full body with limited moves. I...

  3. Bodyweight Could the Fighter Pull-up Program be improved?

    Hello I'm interested in learning more about how to increase muscular endurance. I'm wondering if anyone knows why the Fighter Pull-up Program doesn't use 50% of your max reps approach? From the examples I've seen online, it seems like you have to use 80%-100% of your strength for every set...

    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 Triceps activation from pull-ups: How/why?

    I remember reading somewhere (probably SF related) that you can experience activation of the triceps when performing strict pull-ups and I've certainly experienced this first hand on many occasions. Does anyone know how/why this happens?
  9. Bodyweight Progressive Movement Training and bodyweight

    I have been reading Beyond Bodybuilding, and have recently reread the chapter about 'Progressive Movement Training'. In summary, you can gain squat or bench press strength by lifting heavy with a partial range of motion, and gradually increasing the range of motion. It seemed like pistol squats...

  12. Bodyweight Is the increase in pull up volume causing my wrist and forearm pain?

    I used to do 10 sets of pull ups a week in the 6-8 reps range over two sessions. I've been doing this for four months up until December 2018, and never had any lingering forearm pain. In the past 5 weeks, I've found myself with more time, and have decided to do 5-7 sets of pull ups everyday (at...

    Bodyweight Questions regarding training age; Novice/Intermediate/Advanced

    Hi all, In a different post, I've stumbled upon a concept that I have so far been ignorant about: "Training age" in the context of the post, he was referring to the amount of time spent training and used that to classify a lifter as Novice, Intermediate and Advanced. So far, I've just been...

    Bodyweight Programming Pull Ups (SF style)

    All styles of pull ups (varied grips) are my favourite exercises and a constant in my programmes. I'm wondering what people's experiences are with particular programmes for pull ups using Strong First principles. My current approach is to use variations of GTG style clusters (through the...

    Bodyweight When to end a set?

    Hi all, I'm interested in hearing thoughts and experiences of stopping most sets based on when speed starts slowing down. Is this as hard as StrongFirst recommends pushing a set outside of record attempts? My focus is higher rep bodyweight basics (chins, dips, skater squats). I come from...
