I have not posted for some weeks but i had good reason to do so.
As so many of us i had been searching for the IDEAL ROUTINE too… the best exercise(s), frequency and the others… i′m sure you all know what i′m talking about.
So… what i found was the Overhead Squats. (Olympic style- butt to the floor)
When i first read about it, it tried but didn′t like it. But somehow this exercise stuck in my mind and a little later i tried it again.
Something must have changed because i fell in love with it.
Since 10 August i haven′t done anything else but the OH Squats 3 times a week.
That is 6 weeks – 18 training sessions.
Each was about 30 – 60 minutes long because i wanted to find how many sets/reps are best, which i still have not found.
10 RM went from 35 kg to 50 kg
1 RM from 50 kg to 75 kg
Vertical Jump from 55 cm to 60 cm.
And what is the most interesting is that the chin-ups 1RM, which exercise i wasn′t doing in these 6 weeks at all, improved from 80+25 kg to 80+35 kg.
(btw: age:30, bw: 80, height: 175 cm )
And as a bonus my whole upper body has visibly changed, got a stronger appearance, and become more flexible, especially the shoulders.
That′s what i wanted to share with you.:)
Somebody might find it interesting. I hope so.
