Thanks for your answers Nate.
I read some of your earlier posts and you looked very enthusiastic about Renegade training.
Yeah, I am a Renegade for life, even if I don’t follow the exact programs anymore.
How were your other attributes? explosiveness (vertical,sprinting), relative strength (bodyweight stuff, could you kip, do advanced pistols, gymanstics, body control, etc)
I was faster than ever before and my endurance/conditioning was phenominal. Even though I never ran for time or distance, a few times when I did go for a jog, I had no problem jogging several miles with EASE. And I never trained that way with RT. It was all due to sprinting, various bodyweight exercises (unweighted GPP: burpees, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, vertical hops, etc.), kbell exercises, a lot of jump rope work and doing more “explosive” and higher-rep weighted exercises and GPP.
I didn’t test my vertical, but I could tell that my skills in volleyball and other sports were at my best ever. At 5’4", my friends were amazed at how high I could jump when playing volleyball, or even when messing around on the basketball court and nearly touching the rim.
I dominated in bodyweight exercises (from all the pushups, dips, chins, burpees, etc.), and I was also quite the “gymnast” and could walk on my hands, do handstands and handstand pushups easily, and press myself from a handstand starting with my knees on my elbows.
So although I was a bit smaller (because I got so lean) and weaker (as far as weight numbers go), I had a lot of other positive attributes.
Like you said, it just depends on your goals. I eventually wanted more size and strength.[/quote]
Good point Nate.
You have Renegade core values in your heart even though you’ve switched training styles. That’s cool and I can respect that.
Yeah, it definitely does come down to personal preference.
