    Non-barbell Strength Routines

    Primal Fuel
    I am sure I have missed some routines, but hopefully there are enough options to keep people happy. I am including Crossfit here because even though they use a bar for lifting etc their emphasis seems different than barbell strength and bodybuilding. I will also be adding a survey for barbell strength training.
    The question is which is the main non-barbell Strength routine do you use?

    I chose "Other" as I try to do a mix of bodyweight, sandbags, kettlebells and shovelglove.

    I appreciate the mix thing. I am the same way but at the moment CC is the highest priority.

    I'm currently doing CC for one strength day, sandbags for one strenght day and one conditioning day plus sprinting. Will thorw in kettlebells from time to time. May change it up in a few months, but I normally stick to CC, sandbags and kettlebells.

    i mix things up to, but generally follow the PBF movements and sandbag training. i've been thinking i might want to switch things up a bit though...maybe i should check out CC.

    In fact the constant exercise I do is the barbell. Stronglifts 5x5. The other day I switch up and do all of the systems listed and more. One a day of course!

    What good is a used up world, and how could it be worth having?

    Hello,

    I wonder if someone could answer a quick question. From reading here on this site, it seems like the three most common body weight programs are Primal Blueprint Fitness, Convict Conditioning and You Are Your Own Gym.

    PBF I know, but what is the difference between PBF and the other two? The other two are not free books, so I know they are body weight programs, but not how they differ from PBS.

    Best regards,
    Dan

    In some ways PBF and CC share many of the same goals all towards bodyweight progressions but they go about them in different stages. CC is probably a little more hard core but you would do well on both. YAYOG comes from a military background I am only part way through it but so far it appears to add more traditional go till you burn and circuit type work into the mix. Hopefully someone who has finished it can add some more info there.

    Some of my favorite non-barbell routines are:

    -Kettlebells (Viking Warrior Conditioning, High Rep Swings, 5 RDs For Time 20 Swings/20 Squat Thrusts, etc)
    -TRX (I prefer to play more on my TRX than do a set workout, but its a killer on core stabilization and single leg stuff)
    -Convict Conditioning (Currently working pushups and bridges)
    -Sandbag Training (I suggest building a Bulgarian bag if you don't have access to one. They are excellent for grip, core and stamina training - way harder than they look)
    -Battling Ropes
    -Strong man work (cables, stone lifting, tire flips, sledgehammer work, sled dragging, etc)
