I was watching a video the other day of a fitness schmexpert contending that you cannot build strength with bodyweight exercises after you can do 25 repetitions of a specific movement.
The supposedly scientific conclusion is that you MUST go to weights after 25 reps because all you are building is ENDURANCE.
This is part of the separation syndrome that afflicts so many people in the fitness industry. They speak and write as through endurance has no strength component, and vice-versa. Same goes for flexibility. You’re either strong or you are flexible, but you can’t be both at the same time.
One of the benefits of flexibility is having strength through a greater range of motion – as well as the ability to exert POWER more efficiently.
Oh, and by the way, when muscles are more flexible, they probably have greater endurance.
Well, to address this topic in far more detail, I put up yet another ass-kicking YouTube video for you.
Watch in NOW. And subscribe to my channel because I’m just getting warmed up.
Yes, You Can Increase Strength With Bodyweight Exercise – even after 25 repetitions
