Hi All,

I am a new member but have been following the forum for a few weeks now and have been familiar with John's work for some years.

I only really started my daily workouts 7 days ago. However, I am already seeing some results but am eager for some feedback as to how to proceed.

Ultimately, I am aiming to lose weight, be able to do 100 consecutive press ups and 20 consecutive standard pull ups (from currently being unable to do one!)

My current daily regime is:

150 x standard press ups (full extension)

150 x Hindu squats

150 x dsr bicep curls

I am currently getting these volumes by 'greasing the groove' and have worked up to 15 sets of 10 for each excercise which I do throughout the day.

I sometimes do a 'mini workout' and perform a set of each excercise then rest for 30 seconds and repeat all sets again 3 to 4 times.

For cardio I walk regularly an hour a day (dogs and new baby boy!), However I also do at least one 5 minute stair run a day (run up the stairs ASAP, walk back down, repeat continuously for 5 minutes). Some days I will do this twice (it is surprisingly hard work!)

Any advice how I can advance this to reach 100 push ups or the pull ups would be very welcome.

N.B I don't have a pull up bar yet but aim to get one within the month, any tips for other excercises to do in the meantime?

Thank you all.

Jon

Jon,
I encourage you to master the seven tiger moves!
This is where I start all of my students. If you gain control of the mind/body connection through FMT, the other modalities of Living Strength will be of greater benefit to you.
If you do not own THE MIRACLE SEVEN, I highly recommend that you acquire it.
Also, THE SUPER HEALTH DIET by K.C. Craichy. (.99 for the kindle version) These two books will be a one two punch toward your goals.
Peace and Power,

Hi Tim,

Thank you very much for the advice. I did have a copy of M7 from 2008 but I have not see it for a while so will follow your advice ASAP and acquire a new one.

Just to clarify though should I continue with all or some of the calesthenics or focus purely on the M7 for say a month or two?

I will also look into the diet you reccomended.

Cheers again,

Jon

Once you master the Tiger Moves, all other modalities of Living Strength Training System will provide tremendous benefits.
Try to power walk 1-3 miles a day along with the Tiger Moves.

If you don't mind me asking, how do you find the rotating handles for pushups?
