    With the handstands and dips you might not need extra presses with the kettlebell. It might be fine to 'practice' with a modest weight but I'd be careful about adding too much.

    They recommend you GTG no more than two dissimilar exercises, like an upper body and a lower body. GTG isn't for full body workouts.

    How long have you been doing this? You might need to add some...

    If you can swing or snatch progressively heavier kettle bells your strength will increase but if strength is your primary goal than a barbel is probably more efficient.

    Pavel definitely has a preference for minimalist routines. And if they're doing what you need, why do more?

    It's not limited to endurance. The Naked Warrior is a bodyweight strength program based on gtg for up to 5 reps.

    I was given the advice once that, since it's hard to adjust resistance of bodyweight exercises as precisely, it helps to bump up the reps a bit to 8 or so before progressing.

    Street workout is a little like saying barbell workout, it doesn't tell us which exercises or programming you're working on or if you're following an existing program or making up your own.

    I wonder if something that targets the low traps and rhomboids might help? Those muscles tend to get weak and loose from a sitting lifestyle. Something like face pulls, Dan John's bat wings exercise,...

    That's a lot of activities you list. Do you have a proposed schedule or specific goals you're trying to accomplish? I'm no expert but my first impression is you're trying to do too much at once.

    If you're going to give circuit training a try I think full body workouts would be the correct choice. It probably won't be as good for strength so it comes down to what your goals are.

    Ballistics are a little different than slow movements but, as I understand, sets of around 10 is about right. Plus or minus a bit. There isn't really a hard cutoff, it's more of a continuum. As long...

    That looks like pretty soft wood. And maybe they sped the camera up a little. I don't think you would need any trickery beyond that though.

    My only concern is you'd be working legs and abs only once per week. If you continue making progress this way it might not be a problem.

    Ohe thing that has working for me is a full body workout on MWF then a few easy sets of dips on Saturday. It doesn't seem to interfere with the weeks workouts and my dips are getting stronger.
