At present, I usually don't have access to gyms on the weekend. I am limited to kettlebells, sandbags, and bodyweight training.

Recently, Crossfit has shifted toward programs like Starting Strength, OLAD, and Rutherford Black Box training, and people are getting great results.

I am searching for good options (preferably bodyweight) on days when I see low rep exercises such as squats and deadlifts.

Thank you,
Mike

I'm at a stage in my life that I have no prayer of getting to the gym for CF (or setting up a good enough home gym) and I've been using his Never Gymless program. It's awesome. It's very similar to CF, but with almost no equipment.

It helps to have goals especially with bodyweight exercises. For example, a one arm pullup or 10 HSPUs... thus, you can work towards those with progressive resistance bodyweight exercises. Remember, good goals always have to be something numerically attainable -- e.g. gaining muscle mass is not a good goal. OTOH, gaining 10 lbs of muscle mass is a good goal.

If you don't have any goals it makes it hard to plan a program and you're just doing a random hodgepodge of stuff which usually does NOT work so well. Plus, if you have a goal we can help give you exercises rather than just say go find some when what you're doing may or may not cater towards what you want to do.

I'm trying to figure out how one builds deadlift strength without a bar - then I remembered the post about static pulls on a weight over your max. Find an immovable object, get a grip and pull.
