I like the farmer walk, really like it. It fixes my posture. And it transfers to everything.
Also i like some heavy deadlift. On the summer i worked hard to get a full planche, i can flex my abbie but cannot totally tense my butt. Few sets of heavy dead before the planche training and everything was much different. Much more stronger and firmer the planche.

Yesterday I did some testing after a year with S&S. I surprised myself by being able to dead lift all my KBs which resulted with a 2xBW(66kg) DL (140kg). But it was not pure as I had chained them and wasn’t pulling all at once of the ground. And I had been feeling hammered the last 24h.

I had never attempted a Barbell DL in my life, might run a test later this month.

While in a period of doing heavy Get ups, going for a country walk with one child in a papoose on my front with another child in a pack on my back and carrying a third child like a barbell in a Zercher squat having to scramble up sand dunes and climb over waist high walls. Didn’t lose my balance and my legs just seemed to know how to get me over the obstacles with ease.

I would not necessarily call it interesting because it was to be expected. I found it interesting with the extent of the carryover.

So I used to do old-school calisthenics type training: lots of push-ups, pull-ups, dips, etc. All unweighted. Started off skinny, no weightlifting background. Height 1.72m (about 5'78) and weight about 65kgs (143 lbs).

Did a 1RM bench press of 90kg. I was impressed by the weight, especially with no weightlifting background.

I climbed El Capitan more or less off the couch in regards to vertical pitches climbed in the months leading up. A bit of jugging fixed lines, a bit of technical aid practice (less than 50 pitches in two months) and off we went.

Hello,

@Karen Smith
Do you load you SLDL ? How does it transfer to regular DL for instance ? Do you follow any protocol regarding this move ?

Kind regards,

Pet'
My apologies.. with the holiday around the time of this post I missed your tag. I do SLDL’s both loaded and bw with great carry over! So much so that I now have a workshop strictly on the SLDL and OAPU called Simple Strength.
I will be teaching it again on Feb 9th in San Clemente California.
I design programs according to my goals at the time but normally my method of choice is 3x week waving the load and not to exceed 5/5 in any given workout but always waving volume, progress load between each session. I stay On a program for a minimum of 4 weeks before modifying.

Hello,

It will be a little bit out of the original post, but I frankly believe that working on the military press to get a one arm pull up (or even to get a better / stronger pull up) is [highly] anecdotal. I have no doubt it is possible, but I do not think this can a general rule.

If this would be that simple, training the pull up would almost become unnecessary because press would get the job done for both patterns (push and pull). As an example, specialists of the pull, such as climbers, would extensively train the press. However, they usually train more the pull pattern.

Back to the OP, I also noticed my running is way better since I do plenty of burpees, on an almost daily basis.

Kind regards,

Pet'

Outside specific instances, a vast majority of climbers don't need to train pullups.

We teach the press and the pullup with a very active negative - that's why so many in our world can excel at pullups without a lot of specific pullup training. @JITASIA, have you attended a StrongFirst course or worked with one of our instructors?

+1 to @Bunn and @Steve Freides ... I stopped doing high-volume pull-up programs several years ago after I had medial epicondylitis in both elbows (it wasn't just the pull-ups, it was also from holding focus mitts). Since then, I've been able to maintain an ~18 pull-up max just through pressing, active & relaxed hanging, and an every so often GTG with pull-ups (2-3 reps, 4-5x/day).

@Mike Torres mentions hanging - it's amazing how much this can help pullups. Many people don't realize that their grip is the weak link in their pullups. One person I work with went from 3 pullups to 8 after practicing _zero_ pullups, just hanging from the bar GTG style, a few times every day.
