Quit the Kettlebell sport training due to old injuries so focusing on bodyweight training.
I thought I’d keep an online journal as one or two of the guys have been asking about bodyweight training and have some similar goals to my own.
I’m using an undulating conditioning style of daily practice to work up some high rep bodyweight squats, the goal (as set for me by Mr Steve Cotter) is to complete a 1000 squats in a single set. Undulating conditioning essentially means doing a different amount each day, some days will be high rep, others very high rep, other again lower rep. There’s no fixed pattern, just as long as the work gets done and there is a minimum of one very high rep session within the week.
Secondary goals are to really boost core strength.
