Help me with a training program to achieve my goals
5'10" around 165 lbs
Goals: 2x squat, 2.5x deadlift, iron cross, front lever, planche, free standing handstand push up on rings, press to handstand.
Things I can do: Best squat 245 lbs, best deadlift 310 lbs, back lever (for about a second), tuck planche, full range handstand push ups against a wall - 10 (sometimes I can do more).
I've read through Steven Low's "How To Construct Your Own Workout Program," and I have read these posts http://www.board.crossfit.com/showth...t=26612&page=3 and http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=24494 and while these are great programs I feel that my conditioning level is not high enough.
I have also read through Coach Sommer's front lever and planche progression article http://www.dragondoor.com/articler/mode3/229/
Here's a training program that I had in mind
60 seconds of tuck planche work
3x5 seconds of iron cross isometrics
3x5 front lever pull ups
3x5 weighted ring dips
60 seconds of front lever progression holds
3x5 iron cross pull outs
3x5 rings pseudo planche push ups
3x5 assisted handstand push ups on rings
I would exercise three times a week, with Workout A on Monday and Friday and Workout B on Wednesday. The following week I would do Workout B on Monday and Friday, and Workout A on Wednesday.
Try it and see how it works
Good decision on having no metcon.
Thanks for the responses Steve and Patrick.
I'll try out this program and see where it takes me. I know the iron cross is going to take a while due to my weight, but I am willing to put in the time.
You're maybe two inches tall to be a great ringsman, but that shouldn't stop you from having fun and trying it, at least you're not 6' ;)
