Bare minmum gym workouts

I just got done re-reading The Garage Gym CF journal, and they say that in a bare minimum gym, the workout is as follows:

Day 1: Deadlifts and Tabata squats
Day 2: Push-press and push-ups
Day 3: Cleans and pull-ups
Day 4: Rest

Repeat.

I was wondering if there was anyone out these that follows this regimen and if so, at what weights and how many repetitions are you performing these exercises? Or do you mix it up?

Re: Bare minmum gym workouts

I doubt anyone is doing that specifically. Why can't you just do CF?

Re: Bare minmum gym workouts

In the journal it says:

Quote:
In fact the minimalist/low-budget approach to our program is to do deadlifts and Tabata Squats on day one, push-press and push-ups day two, and cleans and pullups day three and rest day four. Repeat. In minimalist/low-budget mode we derive our metabolic conditioning from running and jumping rope. You could get amazing results on this regimen. Our desire here, though, is to lay plans for a world-class strength and conditioning facility in your home. Let’s proceed with the rest of our design.
The article isn't suggesting that is in anyway an ideal or a program to stick to long term: it says the setup is just a foundation. I think the point is just that with nothing but an olympic bar and a place to do pullups you could achieve fitness well in excess of what the vast majority of gym goers--who have access to thousands of dollars worth of the latest machines--will ever achieve.

Re: Bare minmum gym workouts

I was just curious because in the near future I hope to start building a gym, and would like to use it exclusively as opposed to trying to build a gym and have a gym membership.

Yes but why consıder the mınımalıst workout?

Get a barbell set, rıngs, pullup bar, and a kettlebell and you can do basıcally any CF WOD wıth a few substıtutıons.
