Does anyone still use the Steady State cycle from BtGB?
Jeremy Hay posted a topic in Getting StartedI was reading over Building the Gymnastic Body where Coach Sommer was talking about not pushing oneself during every workout, but allowing slow adaptation. He specifically suggested what he deemed in the book to be the best routine that he has created through his experience, the Steady State cycle. In this cycle, one does approximately half of their maximum hold time in a given static position for a set, and works up to a minute's time, or half of the maximum repetitions for a given strength exercise (non-static), and does up 5x5 working sets. The idea is that during the cycle, which lasts 8-12 weeks, neither the sets or reps should be changed so that maximum adaptation occurs before new maximum hold times or repetitions are established for the given exercises. Does anyone still use this method? If so, how has it worked for you? I ask because it does differentiate itself from the strict structure of what is now GymnasticBodies.
Fitness on a submarine.
Owen Cook posted a topic in Getting StartedI am a serving submariner and currently working my way through the foundation series and flexibility programme. I aim to maintain my progress even when deployed, however, many issues make it difficult to persevere. Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated. With no connectivity, progress through the series is problematic to chart. Lack of space and equipment, with the area available for fitness 3ft wide at best, long enough to fully stretch out and 7ft in height. Pull up bars and rings are available, as well as weights, stretching blocks and bands. Prolonged periods will pass where "phiz" or fitness/gym is unachievable due to operational reasons or sleep being more necessary in the time. Nutrition.... terrible. With very little ability to improve.
Grease the Groove combined with Steady State Cycle
Igor Czerniawski posted a topic in StrengthI wouldn't dare to post this in fundation forum, I'd be hung there by fundation worshippers straight away The question is: Has anyone tried or have any experience in kind of applaying grease the groove to fundation progressions for harder fbs, using steady state cycle rule of 50% of intensity ? Do you think it would make sense if I did for example FL, SPL with coupled mobility exercises 3-4 times a week spread throughout the day ? I have to say that I tried this with L sit for the last 2 months and the progress is mind blowing, at least for me. From struggling with the template progression, being stuck on tough 18 seconds per set, after 2 months I can already do nearly 40 seconds of what is more half v-sit. Maybe dreaming a bit but legs are much higher than parallel. Would applying this method to 2 -3 exercises performed throughout the day fo 3-4 days a week be safe and productive ? Thx.
Twice a day
Luce posted a topic in StrengthI am new here and I simply tried to find a thread regarding training twice a day, I am sure there is something but couldn't find it. So, what is GB's view on training twice a day, or splitting ones' routine into two shorter sessions a day? Also, instead of training F1 and H1 on different days, could these both be done in the same day, F1 in the morning, and H1 in the evening, without taxing the system too much or getting into over training? In other words, doing strength work in the morning, skill work in the evening, or the other way around... Is there anyone who has experience training in this way with these programs?

Help developing a routine
Daryl Chan posted a topic in MovementHello everyone my name is Daryl Chan. I was a tricker, doing flips and stuff, but i had surgery and was unable to move very much now that i am getting back on my feet. I am becoming more interested in the world of handbalancing.I have realised if i do not do handstands a bit every other day at least, I begin to lose the feeling and it slips away a bit. I was wondering if people would be willing to share their routines with me, and or maybe help me develope one of my own. As for my current handstand abilities. I will post a link below. sorry, i do not know how to post in the thread videos. my goals would be to eventually progress to one handed handstands Please feel free to comment critique or just help me devise a routine thank you.

Critique request: My hour-and-a-half training routine
Pasi Niskanen posted a topic in Getting StartedHi all! I'm new here and was hoping for some input on my current routine. It goes as follows. Two sets per move, same number of reps per move, progression 1 rep per session, 2 minute rest between sets, takes about one and a half hours. Each move can be found from here: Moves are not in the order of completion but rather by category. I try to mix them up to work out everything evenly. BAR Hanging knee to elbow Hanging leg raise Archer pull-up Hanging wipers Front lever (extending legs one after the other) PUSH-UPS Spiderman Hindu Diamond Crucifix OTHERS Pistols Bodyweight tricep extension Shoulder press holding the kettlebell by its horn and the bell facing upwards I do this 3 times a week and often after a 1,5 h - 2 h climbing session. Bouldering is my main sport. What do you guys think? Is it comprehensive enough?
I Read The Book, And I'm Confused About Constructing A Routine
Justin Cloud posted a topic in Getting StartedFirst of all I have some questions regarding to btgb. 1) About static holds for steady state cycle, here's a part where I do not understand: "You will perform ten sets of six seconds. This is important; at no time during the training cycle increase past a six second tuck planche hold. Maintain it even towards the end of the cycle, when you are feeling particularly strong and stable at 6 seconds." Is it telling me to stick with 6 seconds even though I felt that i'm capable of holding longer at the moment? 2) I'm still not sure how to progress with FBE. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now, I'll be throwing my goals and my "attempted put together routine" at you guys. status: Age: 19 weight: 180lbs height: 6'1 My Goals / current ability -Free handstand for 15sec (been trying to get this for quite a while)/// currently: I read beast skills tutorial on handstand, so I do it back against the wall. When I take my feet off the wall, getting the balance just felt like mere luck.) -free handstand pushup for 5 reps /// currently: able to do 3 wall HeSPU negatives) -Planche /// currently: only able to do frog-stand for 15 sec, my right shoulder joint hurts after doing frog stands) -able to perform 8 smooth ring dips /// currently: able to turn the ring out 45 degree, keep it close to my side, and hold it for 10 sec. When I do ring dips, it gets a little jerky with the transition of turning the ring back out after completing a rep. Able to do 5 ring dips if I disregard the holding position. -recover from my lower back injury. -obtain a similar physique like this dude (yes, It's awesome) Routine (currently incomplete, because i'm still a little confused) FSP: Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri - L-sit- PB (have to use calculate steady state cycle numbers ) - ring turn out holds (have to use calculate steady state cycle numbers) - tuck front lever ( same as above, need to test max) -tuck back lever (same as above) -handstand balance practice (I'm not sure how to work on this) - frogstand (currently my shoulder joint hurts after doing them, i'll postpone) FBE: Mon: HeSPU negatives (not sure how to progress....) inverted chin-ups(not sure...) hang leg raises-half(not sure...) hill sprint (not sure...) Tues: ring push up progression (not sure...) inverted chin-ups (...) sls jump (...) do not know what lower back exercise I can do, because I do not have a partner while working out at the park. Thurs: hill sprint Fri: ring dips (...) ring elevated rows (...) wind shield wiper-half (...) sls jump (...) This is what I came up with so far. Last question.... how do I use pttp on FBE? Thank you
