As much as I LOVE bodyweight training I still use the deadlift and the squat in some form of another with added weight. When I bail on deadlifts and squats my legs get WEAK, and as a man, I have NO room for weakness.
The squats and deads help me run faster and jump higher. Running is NOT my forte so anything that helps with my runs is a plus in my book.
Even if you don't squat or deadlift till your eye balls pop out of your head, that's fine, the main thing is that you do "The Thing".
In a nut shell, let's close this bad boy out:
- Use the squat or deadlift 1 x week or more. Your frequency of use depends on your intensity, personal physical / emotional effects from these lifts, etc
- Perform jumps of ANY type at least 2 x week. Broad jumps, vertical jumps, box jumps, squat and lunge jumps, etc. To take your jumps to the next level use the power jumper
QOD (Question of the Day): Without talking about lifting or training, what do you think are "2 things every man should do"? This oughtta get interesting. Drop your comments below. Looking forward to reading these!
PS: I'm working on a new bodyweight training course, looks like we'll be ready to open the doors around the first week of August. Make sure you are signed up for updates and members of The Underground Inner Circle will get in FIRST.
