Learn to effectively combine your Bodyweight & Barbell conditioning! This is something I covered with @schoolofcalisthenics and @victory_visuals in the new members videos being launched next week (filming more on Monday 28th). How? Sign up yo my free newsletter through the link in the bio, but also (taken from an old article of mine) Consider the research published by sports scientists in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research who investigated the additive effects of plyometric push-ups (where the athlete's hands leave the floor during the upward-concentric phase, often clapping in between reps) to a traditional heavy resistance training program on strength.
Here, 17 resistance-trained men were selected and assigned into two groups. One group followed a traditional strength training protocol for eight weeks while the other combined traditional strength training with plyometric push-ups. Following the eight weeks, the athletes were tested on the bench press: although both groups improved, the traditional strength training group increased by 7.1 per cent on average compared to 11.6 per cent for the plyometric push-up training group.
Scientists concluded that the inclusion of bodyweight plyometric push-ups into a "heavy resistance training program increased 1RM bench press and enhanced power."
