Bodyweight training + gym session

Bence 2 years ago in Workouts updated by andy 2 years ago 2

Hi Mark!

I believe in Dorian Yates training method (4 workout days) and this is the way I train. I started with calisthenics (+ weighted calisthenics) and after that I focused on weight training. For a year now i try to mix these two. Do you think is it optimal for muscle growth to have a bodyweight training day, and after that a gym session?

For Example: Monday: Pull day (wide grip pull up, chin up, close grip pull up, weighted pull up etc)

                     Tuesday: Push day (bench press, machines etc.)

Of course I change the workouts every week.The previous example is the first week, and the second week is Monday: Pull day, but in the gym, and Tuesday is a push day, but with push ups.

Thank you for everything. 

Take Care

I don't see bodyweight day having enough progressive overload to be optimal. I don't like this strategy BUT if you want to do it let us know how it goes!
