Press-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups for Strength

#1
Hi all,

Just a general question.

Are press-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups sufficient to build strength for ADSC?

If not, what else should I be doing?

Thanks,

Matt

They will be in a sense but a bit of weight training would be usefull for the basic gym tests (static lift etc).

Try dorsal raises for back, if you don't know what they are, look it up.

Do some overheard press work, squats and dead lifting as well as pull up and core work.

Add that in once or twice a week (twice being optimal if your doing other stuff like bodyweight work and ofcourse 3-5 cardio sessions) and you'll be set.

Anyone else find that when they switched training methods from one training method with different aims in mind to another they had greater gains. For example I was obsessed with numbers before, then switched to overall athletic development, and all aspects of fitness went up including muscular endurance, which I was not directly training.

Its because your body adapts to training stimuli.

If you are doing the same thing again and again you reach a point of diminishing returns.

Usually you have to mix it up as it were at that point or usually take a rest as well and then start over again
