Bodyweight + VO2 max...

Prep - Z, Brettzel, ASLR
Bodyweight drills
Pull-up x 5, 10 (shoulder width grip), 8 (close grip)
Pistols x 2, 2, 3 (down on two legs in a close squat - up on one then full pistols)
Handstand pushups x 5, 3
Wall walk Bridges x 2, 1

24 kg VO2 Max - 7 reps per 15 sec. x 24 sets

Pistols are feeling good and working from the close squat is a keeper.
Getting back to some bodyweight training is a good thing + KBs = a great thing.

Hi Brett! good work as always

Came upon this article on the pistol today and was wondering on your thoughts on it?

Fredd,
Keep you eyes open for a possible FMS workshop in Sweden this October!
Thanks for checking in and I will be posting a response to the blog post you put here. Very Interesting!

This is an excellent workout you have here, Brett! One of the reasons I know people love your blog is that you really seem to be developing your own kinda hybrid functional training; it's a blend of strongman feats (card tearing, etc.), old school calisthenics and kettlebell work...plus other goodies you seem to throw into the mix now and again. Question--I loved your KB basics stuff, but when do we get to see your personal system in its own BOOK?!
