    Default 5X5X5 for body weight exercises

    Hello, I was wondering if applying 5X5X5 protocol for body weight exercises to be a good idea. The problem I find is that I am running out of ways to make squats, 1 hand pushups pullups etc, progressively harder. Any Ideas ?

    This pertains to pistols but think it could cross over to many exercises.

    Com. kkhayra, the 5x5x5 program is for barbells only because you are supposed to work up to a certain poundage. For bw drills GTG or do ladders.
