PostSubject: a simple routine, yet effective   Fri Jun 27, 2014 1:37 pm

greetings from venezuela.

my first experience with calisthenics was october 2013, and it was great. in just a couple of months i achieved some goals that i have never even got close training in a gym.

my routine is extremely simple, created by my self, called tri-series (dunno if that name make sense in english, it does in spanish):

10 pull ups
10 bar dips
10 push ups
1 min rest
x 10 sets
EVERYDAY

so, by the end of the routine, i had 100 pull ups, 100 bar dips and a 100 push ups. no rest between excercises.

after a couple of weeks i added a fourth exercise, explosive sprints, i think it was 100 meters long, more or less, never measured it, it is just the space i had in front of me from the bars to a fence.


those final months of 2013 were a complete success, bf decresed to 7% i was ripped as f..k. my diet was only chicken or meat and yams or plantains. zero vegetables, zero supps. only those four items, 5 or 6 time a day.

2014 have been a lil different, but for work and personal reasons. things got complicated at the office and missed january an february, got back on march and april with a different routine, got injured, kept training until it was impossible to handle. this week started back with the routine and using intermitten fasting, leangains to be specific.

so, i have a couple of questions for ypu guys, with a lot more experience than me.

what do you guys think about this routine? it still amazes me how simple it is, yet effective. any changes? any advices? should i add o take away something?

is leangains compatible with this kind of training?

my excuses if my questions are too simple or silly, but all this is completely new to me

thanks!

I would say that this routine is a simple, yet good one...BUT...like everything, you get too used to doing the same thing and the benefits start to decrease. It seems that a general consensus is, in the calisthenics world, when you get really good at the basics, pump up the difficulty. Add in weighted basics, isometric holds, handstand pushups, more core work, and so on. I believe that once you start "uping" your routine, you will see a lot more improvements, also you will have more fun with your workout.
