Hi guys, this is my first post and I'm pretty excited to start training with just body weight (almost)
. I still am going to do some weight training just to help with certain body weight movements.
My goals are:
- 50 continuous, shoulder width, chest-to-floor push ups
- 20 pullups (overhand)
- 200 situps
Currently I can do:
- 21 continuous, shoulder width, chest-to-floor push ups
- 9 underhand pullups (underhand are SO much easier for me)
- 2 or 3 overhand pullups
- 100-120 situps
As of right now, I am not really concerned with the advanced moves (iron cross, plankes, forn/back levers). I just want to get really good at the basics.
Currently, I am doing three calisthenics circuits a week on non-consecutive days and three interval/running sessions on non-consecutive days. On the circuit days I'll do some tricep extensions and dumbbell curls as well.
Should I do a conventional superset, pyramid or ladder routine OR should i just completely mix it up every workout? Should I follow a linear progression routine or more of a "random and varied" routine (akin to Crossfit)?
Thanks for the replies and good luck with everyone's training.
