Hi all, first post, im looking into starting calisthenics/bodyweight strength training, ive read every piece of literature I can find, all al kavadlos books as well as overcoming gravity, convict conditioning, you are your own gym etc. Im thinking of using either a full body (m/w/f) or a upper/lower (m/tu/th/f) split, one issue I am having is when to train "skills"? Im thinking full body workout (m/w/f) skill days (tu/th) and weekends resting? This seem like a good idea? "Skill days" would include progressions for: Front lever Back lever Elbow lever L-Sit Planche Human flag Handstand Im torn between having 2 "skill days" per week or splitting the skills up and performing them on workout days? Any input is greatly appreciated!
I'm too impatient for the new challenge to start so I'm going to rebel and start... right now. This new challenge will be super focused and ALL about handstands. The plan is to tackle handstands from every angle I can think of and hopefully finally make some real progress between now and the end of next challenge. Main quest - 10 second consistent handstands Goal #1: Pick one category to work on every day from the following: â€‹ A. Perfect form Line drills on the floor and against the wallEndurance training against the wallBalance drillsB. Strength Core and shoulder conditioningCool armbalances - elbow lever and craneC. Rest Wrist and shoulder prehab or whateverâ€™s needed to keep my body happyActive straddle and front splits stretches Goal #2: Pick one more category to work on every training day from the following: A. Control Headstand playHeadstand pressesElbow standsB. Things that are uncomfortable Handstand forward rollsKicking up with the wrong legTuck jumps Goal #3: Take lots of video to check form Because only perfect practice makes perfect. Aaaand that's it.
