Hello everyone,

I am new here, so I hope I am posting this question in the right forum.

Anyways, I have been working on Coach Sommer's planche and front lever progressions for some time now. I am currently working on the advanced tuck planche, straddle front lever, and advanced tuck front lever pull ups.

I am also working on weighted pistols, weighted one legged calf raises, and COC grippers.

My question is, would I be in danger of overtraining if I were to add hanging leg raise progressions, iron cross progressions and handstand progressions?

My training program is currently as follows:
I do this workout on Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri.

Advanced Tuck planche: 13 reps x 3 seconds
Straddle Front Lever: 3 reps x 3 seconds
Weighted pistols: 3 sets x 4 reps
Weighted 1 leg calf raises: 3 sets x 6 reps
Advanced tuck front lever pull ups: 3 sets x 5 reps
COC #1: 3 sets x 3 reps

I should also probably mention that my hold times/reps are 50% of max. I would also continue to use the same methodology with the additional exercises if I were to add them.

Thank you to anyone who replies.

Good training,

Keegan

It is virtually impossible for me to estimate at what point you will reach an overtraining (under recoverred) threshold. What training volume you can maintain differs from individual to individual, and depends dramatically on your current level of fitness. I'd just advise adding things gradually. Follow Coach's general rule. If after your rest day(s) you are not feeling ready to go for your next cycle then you may need to scale back a little. If you add things gradually you won't slam yourself so badly that you'll get set back.

Hello Roger,

Thank you for the advice.

So in other words, try adding one of the exercises, then if everything goes well, try adding another one, and so on?

Also, by rest day(s), do you mean the rest days after the 8 week cycle? Or do you mean the rest days between workout days? I assume you mean the later, but I just want to make sure.

Once again, thanks for the advice.

Good training,

Keegan

Progress! Keep a log, keep working on adding a little more, be it intensity, volume, whatever. You'll soon find yourself taking on more volume more easily.
