Bodyweight Strength and Conditioning
 
Hi everyone, so I have a question in regards to going bodyweight training, with only 1-2 sort of weight days added into the mix for the next 2-3 months or so. I've been wanting to focus on getting better at my bodyweight skills for a long time along with my strength and conditioning and have decided it would be best to pretty much strip any "weight" training away. I am decently strong with the ability to do the basic bodyweight movements efficiently, but the more technical movements are my pet peve and I want to nail them down before I continue on with any actual serious weight work. I train out of my garage gym and was wondering if there are any sites that would be great to use in regards to bodyweight training? Also, if anyone would have any thoughts as to what would be a good option for training weighted 1-2 times per week. I'm mainly gearing more towards stamina on the weights rather than pure strength so any help there would be nice. I know this is a bit long, but if anyone could refer me to a site or give me some advice as to what I should do that would be great! Thanks everyone!

There is a book called convict conditioning. From what I understand it shows some of the body weight progressions.

Also check out some of the "calisthetics kingz" videos on youtube.

That should give you a start. All links are wfs except maybe some language on rosstraining.

Hey Jeffrey,

I am planning to do the same, will do more BW training during summertime.
My choice of resources are:
Convict Conditioning combined with
Ross Enamait's Never gymless
CC has levels with progressions, while NG has more overview about planning workout routines.

Also this website has pre-made WODs-bootcamp style, so you don't have to do the thinking:

How were your gains on the 2 day 531? Do you feel they are/were comparable to a 4 day with more assistance?

gains were slow. ive never done a 4day and i was training 15-20hrs a week of gymnastics

for maintenance one day might be enough

Any ideas for weight work on a bodyweight plan? Keeping in mind that I would like to do only 1-2 per week as more of a way to build stamina. Complexes maybe, or something else that someone could suggest?
