Barbell And Calisthenics
Barbell And Calisthenics was developed during my time as a gym owner. I used it to train and prepare military and first responders for their academies, selection processes, and on-the-job performance. This program is best suited for intermediate level lifters who want a simple, hassle-free, and time efficient approach to training. It has a lower frequency of barbell work, so beginners are probably better served by using a program that allows for more frequent practice to build up proficiency in the basic barbell movements. However, once that foundation has been established, this progression, albeit slow, can work very well. Congruent with my general approach to training, the power of this comes from doing high quality work, consistently, for a long time. It’s about making incremental improvements and not letting the “progression at any cost” approach interfere with your longterm improvement. Be patient. Take your time. Enjoy the process. Solidify your gains and own the movements down to the core of your physiology. Training is a practice, and this is simply one approach that you can use along the way. Enjoy!
