3 Days 5,500 Bodyweight Reps

3 Days 5,500 Bodyweight Reps

Sometimes I plan my workouts sometimes they just happen, depending
on the kind of time I have. So for the last three days I have done 5,500
bodyweight reps Tuesday 2,500 bodyweight squats, Wednesday 1,000
cargo strap (Atlas Style) pushups and Thursday 2,000 bench dips.

The rules I use on myself for the last 3 days was drink water and eat
nothing all day while I worked and not until I completed the number of
reps I set for the day. I guess I usually go for just about 24 hours and eat
a big salad for dinner when I complete the day.

I think training, working physically and depriving yourself with food and
drinking water will toughen someone up. Most people that train are all
consumed by how much and how many times they need to eat in a day.

Here is a great thought, eat when you are hungry and not by what the
clock says. I don’t follow the same rules as the general gym population
I have different thoughts about what the mind and body can do and handle.

Some will read some will listen but very few will want to push themselves
through the threshold of physical and mental pain. I have told people before
I don’t have the luxury of training and taking days off to recover; people spend
more time in recovery than they do training. I use my body to earn a living
constantly pulling, dragging, pushing, lifting and twisting.

I only tell you these things because people need to know that it’s not
how little you use your body, it’s how much and how long you can use it
that bring the biggest results.

I train and eat as basic as possible and use one old school supplement.
Play follow the leader, follow the majority and you will always get the
majorities results. Stand alone and make your own decisions.

Toughness Builds Winners

  1. Good post Johnny! Those numbers are insane? Are you visibly dropping weight?

  2. Showing how much you can handle for what? If you were a bloated, overfed heavyweight this would make sense, but you are not. How lean do you want to get? Nazi concentration victims were lean.

  3. I don’t understand this either, for three days you didn’t eat anything??? That’s gotta be insanely tough but what are you doing that for? From the videos of you I have seen you don’t look like you need to lose any weight.

  4. He ate every night (salad) after his reps for the day were completed. He’s saying that you don’t need to constantly be full of food and rest for your body to be able to handle whatever is put in it’s path (day in and day out). He’s attempting to show people that your body was made to work and that these “health mag gym facts” are only facts in the gym and editing room – not in real life where people get their hands dirty.
