I’ve been following your site and bodyweight routine for 2,5-3 months ( don’t remember exactly ) and I love the results i’ve lost ~ 9 pounds ( although I eat more than before ), moved from 7 to 12 good form pull ups, from very lousy 3 to 18 firm diamond push ups ( also a little progress on getting to pistol squat ), and overall I look better ( even some small gains maybe :) ). But over the period of last 3 weeks Im stuck, not making any progress. It have been happening to me over last years – I start workout routine ( weight, body weight – doesn’t matter ), I develop and then BOOM, it stops for months, no matter what i do. As a skinny fat I probably have poor genetics. Any suggestions?
Everyone’s first year or so of training should be spent learning movement patterns and developing a base level of strength. But once you get past these beginning stages, if you want to reach a specific goal, you have to get very specific about your training. This goes for growing bigger arms, pulling a 500-pound deadlift or getting on stage in a Speedo and a deep tan. Be a generalist and you’ll get mediocre results. Spend your hours in the gym working towards one main goal, however, will yield results much more quickly than you might expect. So, if you want freaky-deaky pipes, don’t be afraid to lay off the Olympic lifts and improving your mile time for a while and focus on the task at hand.
