Hello everyone

I’m Stefano from Italy, teacher and psychologist. I had an history of training based on barbell compounds movement, but I totally got bored of iron and gyms, so I found a new stimulus in bodyweight training.

My main goal at the moment is working to harder and harder versions of Bodyweight Chin Up and Push Up: now I’m working towards One Arm Push Up and L Sit Chin Ups (and when this variation’ll become easy, next goal will be Archer Chin Ups).

i want to train only with my Bodyweight, without adding weights, in order to be able to train anywhere, in every moment

Tuck L Sit Chin Ups

3x2/3/5
Archer Push Ups

Archer Push Ups are becoming more and more solid...I have to work on my tuck position for Chin Ups, I have to reduce the swing of my body

Tuck position felt more solid today, learning to brace and to feel my core during Chin Ups

Tuck L Sit Chin Ups (One Leg Raised)

3x1/2/3
One Arm Push Up Negatives
3x1/2/3

I moved to the next progression: I tried to raise a leg from the tuck position during Chin Ups and I substituted Archer Push Ups with a full One Arm Push Up Negative.

Now I have to work to be stronger with a raised leg (I loose the position at the bottom) during Chin Ups and to slower the negative during One Arm Push Ups

Experimental workout...using Uneven Chin Ups (one hand grabbing a towel) and finally full One Arm Push Ups...using ten total singles for both, hoping to use them as a very frequent workout...could it be a good idea?

How has the transition from weights to bodyweight been?
Hi Adam!

I can tell you that i’m really happy with the transition...if I have to summarize the pros and cons:

Pros:
-
i’m Free to train anywhere and everytime I want
- Chin Ups and Push Ups variations are a great total body workout
- Bodyweight Training is the perfect tool in this period of cutting weight...
- it’s really great when your body becomes your gym

Cons:
-
only one, since i’m New to this kind of training: Bodyweight is way harder to program and to track progress vs. Weights

So, I can tell you i’m Really happy with the switch...now i’m Working towards knowing more and more my body and overall to learn the right way to progress finding harder variations
