Once you reach and sustain a reasonable level of proficiency with a movement, move on to the next harder variation.

Now, I think it is safe to say that we have debunked Sommer’s 5 x 15 push ups. I appreciate the emphasis on safety that GB takes sometimes, but it would be a year or two before I ever even attempted a handstand if those were the prerequisites.

Their recovery and speed and athletic ability were absolutely normal; a few were even chritopher, a point for which Sommer often received criticism from other coaches. No explanation of the exercises – you have to find that out for yourself.

It’s like I was so tight I wasn’t even getting any benefits out of the pancake until my pike got much better. I made 5x2min some years ago by following latter half of H1; however max HS at the time was already 90sec, so it was a matter of consistent scheduling. Really great amount of info on F1 and your opinions and progress on it.

I also own GMB, but don’t like how you forego some training focus when doing one their apparatus trainings: The GST stuff has given me progressions to work towards, which I do really enjoy.

Hi Jo, Thanks for your comment — so the full programme for book one is all over the internet. Who cares, move on. The later progressions seem a little more thought out, but I personally have not reached them yet.


The wrist exercise it prescribes are very good, and I have seen great success in using them. If I can add to the discussion, I’ve recently rebooted myself and the new follow along has taught me to just make progress, your 73rd, 74th and 75th push up was sloppy or your form broke down near the end of your 5th set of hollow holds?

The problem is then that the program needlessly holds you back from working other things because all programs have to fit the format of progressions, i. What would you suggest me? My main concern with Foundation is that the program is supposed to lead you to the seven movments as you’ve described: As Sommer himself states: Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.

Surely hyper extending your lower back looks very similar to an anterior pelvic tilt? I did notice a slight difference in my physique after 8 weeks, yes but the keyword here is slight. Explained quickly, the larger the cell is, the more dividends the endurance training will pay. I do the strength-set followed immediately by the mobility-set, thena again the strength-set…and so on? In my opinion, Foundation is not a strength program in fact I think that outside some specific things, bodyweight exercises alone suck as a strength program for beginner adults, but that’s a different topic.

I started week 6 with 5 x 20 seconds. So much so, that I may just video tape every workout if I can.

You can mix weights with GST, for sure but you must be intelligent how you go about your programming, otherwise, yes, it will be too intensive. Maybe middle splits is too advanced in comparison to the other series but it is still scaleable. I have to agree with you, Naterman was talking about adding weighted programming to be done in conjunction when he was still on the boards.

Handstahd reality it’s pretty obvious you need both.

I merely bring up the push-up numbers to remind you of Sommer’s milieu, and provide context to give you perspective, again perhaps lacking due to Forum-generated myopia.

Or did you attempt mastery of the current progression every week? Before I get into the reviews of the programs, I want to be up front about my major complaint with GB as a whole: Everything else the iM and the depth are agreeable for the move but all I get is mmm nope, not yet, gotta keep working this.

That’s where Sommer’s series appeals to me, no frills and straight to the point. How long it will take is another topic, but in short to your question, Yes! Try bunny hop and keep the knees in until your shoulder and traps are tight and placed properly.

I understand you made it to the 2nd progression for the front lever, side lever, single leg squat; 3rd progression for the manna; what does the 6th progression look like for these?

Wes’ technique videos make that much more clear. Straddle Up 5 x 15 reps. Some movements are huge roadblocks and they are common to pretty much all users of the program.

Do we really need to have full 90 degree shoulder width shoulder extension before ever attempting a handstand? So a trainee should develop it and move on. In my opinion, this is one of the weaknesses of the program. Like, okay, GB has a lot of pitfalls and too high of rep range.

It’s complete, concise and systematic. I agree christophr you that these companies use effective marketing and often display images and videos of very proficient athletes to get your attention and hopefully buy their material.

His background was powerlifting and bodybuilding for around 3 years.
