Question by traceur11: Does doing weight training once a week make a difference when you usually train with bodyweight?
Say you do pushups, chinups, and other bodyweight workouts every day. My question is, would doing weight training say once a week make a difference in your strength? Is it worth your time? I know high rep exercises like pushups train different muscle fibers than do the low rep workouts with weight training, so is that counter-intuitive? Can you effectively develop both high rep bodyweight strength as well as low rep training with weights?
Answer by Laurus Nobilis Yes, you can train everything imaginable at once. If you were to only weight train once a week, the best sort of training would probably be low-rep, high-set, high-weight strength training because there wouldn’t be many results otherwise. I would recommend weight training more often, but if you can only manage once a week, do this.
I wouldn’t really call high-rep bodyweight exercises “strength” either. More like “endurance”, I reckon, haha. You can also do higher intensity, low-rep bodyweight exercises such as one handed push ups and one legged squats if you ease yourself into them. In fact, if you are actually a traceur then I would recommend you get good at difficult calisthenics such as these as well as the ordinary kinds. Your instantaneous strength will be far more important than your endurance for this sport.
