My Bodyweight strength routine (September 2020 Update 2)

 Hello,

In the last post, I presented a split routine that I was using at the time to develop bodyweight strength.

Since then, I started reading the book Overcoming gravity, 2nd edition, by author Steven Low.

This book recommends a full-body routine for my level:

    "If you are a beginner or intermediate athlete -- as indicated by the strength         progression charts -- you should utilize a full-body routine with few exceptions."

-- Steven Low, page 73, Chapter 7 - Constructing your workout routine, Overcoming gravity, 2nd edition, 598 pages,  ISBN-13 : 978-0990873853 .

The progression charts of the book Overcoming gravity, 2nd edition, are available online as a standalone printable file.


My new full-body routine is performed 3 times per week.
