    Will adding a parallettes program to LHT+sprints lead to overtraining?

    Primal Fuel
    I just bought a pair of parallettes and am looking to begin a gymnastics program: Parallette Training: Parallettes One

    Can I do this on top of my twice a week LHT sessions (half hour bodyweight only) and once weekly tabata sprints (5 minute sessions)
    This particular program focuses heavily on upper body and runs three times a week for about one hour per day

    What do you guys think? I'm 25, in decent shape and am very excited about pursuing gymnastics but I don't want to stop training PBF style

    You'll be fine. If you feel you're not being fine, stop.

    I think i'm going to put the LHT workouts on hold for a while as I focus on parallettes. I actually emailed the GMB team; Andy replied with this, which seems to make a lot of sense:

    Hey Victor - glad you're excited about P1. I think it's going to be great for you.
    From the looks of what you outlined, here's what I'd do:
    - Prioritize P1 workouts. They will be more difficult and take the most energy.
    - You can continue doing pull-ups if you want, but save them for after your P1 work.
    - Ditch the extra push-ups.
    - You're welcome to do squats, but the Leg Module might be more interesting.
    - Keep doing the weekly sprint sessions.

    The biggest thing is not to double up on stuff that P1 has by adding the less-sophisticated versions in the basic bodyweight routine (nothing wrong with it - it just takes less skill).

    So...the dude selling you a program and equipment said that the program and equipment being sold to you are superior?

    Weird.

    sounds perfectly logical to me given your own prioritization

    I would definitely keep the pull ups though. Sounds like p1 solo is begging for imbalances

    You can do deads and benches every day if they're at a light resistance for you.
