hw effective is the gtg system and the 1 arm pushups and one legged squats program found on the naked warrior by pavel tatsouline?
i dont have a gym membership due to lack of funds and i need something more challengin than usual pushups,pullups and dips for strength and a bit of size.so will it be actually work?[/quote]
You can definately build some muscle and strength using 1 arm pushups and pistols. Just not using the set rep schemes pavel has. Unless you can’t do more than one or two, use traditional set rep schemes and above all progression.
If you can do his 5x5 right now, progress using higher reps and shorter rest, or by making the exercise more difficult by adding weight to the exercise (you probably have a back pack, and a cheap set of dumbell plates will cost you $20 at walmart). Changing leverages will also work by elevating or using one-arm one-leg for the pushups (also works your core!).
Handstand pushups, dips, and one-arm or weighted chin progressions are also staples of my routine. Using that same $20 adjustable dumbell set you can do dumbell snatchs or deadlifts for your posterior chain.
PM me if you want help with routines, this is exactly how I train.
