I seem to remember this being talked about a few months ago, and it being some form of all day long workout or some-such though i can't seem to find it Sad.

I'm working from home marking first year papers for the next few days so thought I might give it a go Smile

Anyone got any links to what the actually involves, or any routines they've tried Smile

Cheers Smile

It's Grease the Groove, by Pavel Tsatsouline, maybe that will help you find it Razz. You pick a number of reps for exercise what you can manage to do in every 30 minutes throughout the day, that won't tire your muscles that much, so if you finish your day you will have done a lot of reps whilst still being very fresh and energized Razz

Check out Pavel's "Naked Warrior" book. That's the original source of the material. It's actually a great book. I just finished it yesterday, and lots of information in it.

Grease the Groove. You basically do half of your max reps, multiple times per day to increase CNS efficiency. No fixed schedule, no fatigue. If you walk past a pull up bar, do a few. Don't do it with too many moves. Pavel recommends only doing 2 unrelated moves at a time.

I would say Pullups and Dips. Those are the 2 main exercises, i think.

has anyone made experiences with this type of training? I mostly see videos and training routines where people do as many repititions as they can or atleast push themselves near failure. doing it like this myself.

It's a great way to increase reps. It got me from 5 pull ups to 15 in a relatively short time. It's a great way for those that don't have time for a training session. 5 minute blocks throughout the day can do wonders

Its also good for getting used to really hard (at the time) moves, like H(e)SPU and tuck planche pressups when you can only manage 1 or 2 at a time.

It's really helped me with work on handstands too.
