PostSubject: some advice for a beginner   Tue Oct 16, 2012 3:47 pm

Hello everybody I am just starting calisthenics not long ago and I am trying to attain and improve some bodyweight movements at the moment and have come up with sort of an routine

My goals are
1) increasing the numbers of my muscleups
2) increasing the numbers of my handstand pushups
3) holding the front lever for >5s

I have come up with a progression of muscleups in such a way
9x5
8x6
7x7
6x8
5x9
5x10

what do you guys think of this progression?

I am thinking on having a weekly routine like this:

MON, WED, FRI
muscle-up training

TUE, THUR
front lever training 4 sets of hold + ~20mins high intensitycore training in the gym

and GTG for handstand pushups 6 days a week

will I be putting too much stress on my shoulders since all three moves that I am trying to improve on invloves a lot of shoulder strength, or would it be ok as long as I don't feel a substantial amount of soreness?

some stats kinda tell where am I at:

I have never maxed out my back lever hold but for sure I can hold it for at least 25s
alternating single-legged front lever hold max: 15s on each side
muscleup max: 8

for the front lever training, would it be more effective to hold it at a time which is close to failure or to have a preset amount of time?

please comment and criticize my plan, thanks guys Wink

no man, really, I just started getting into calisthenics around a month ago

the only reason why my condition may seem not too bad is because I am light (5"8 - 5"9 ~142lbs)

My short term goal is to get 10 clean muscleups in a row, then I will probably try another program Ironloo post for strength

Nice to be light and throw yourself around like that.

I would say work the basics with weight as your strength to weight is already very advanced.

pull ups and chin ups to chest
dips
leg raises with ankle weights
Levers with vest and ankle weights
pistol squats and jumping pistol squats

Seems as though you have been blessed with the strength of a man 30lbs heavier so train like your 60lbs heavier.

Search on youtube "white hannibal" and train like that!

Im assuming you started with some muscle from some previous other training? It would make me feel better if that's the case...haha

In 6 months you will be freakin unstoppable! I thought my gains were good. Im in my 4th month of training.

I had been working in and out with weights for like a years and a half before transferring to NYC, but then the gym memberships here are too expensive so had to find another way to work out.

well, in weight lifting, being light is kinda bad, but I do find it a bit beneficial to be light while doing bodyweight, I guess the world is fair lol

I have seen that russian guy on YouTube before, not as crazy as the hannibal in NY but still bloody mental. These people are true inspirations.

but one thing I really have to work on is my lowerback...its kinda weak..and my spine is not straight...lol
