I'm looking to improve my at-home body-weight training routine. It's a kind of circular training I've devised to balance my rock climbing. Climbers who don't do complementary training end up with over developed back, sunken chest and bad posture.
My goal is to stretch and strengthen the rest of the body with different kind of exercise. That includes major muscle groups in the core, chest, abs, arms and legs. Key part of this routine is to avoid gripping and pulling anything because that's what climbing is for.
The routine is as follows (not including warm up and stretching):
- 10 push-ups with high legs, 10 squats
- 20 crunches, 20 calf raises
- 5 pistols each leg, 10 "1.5 push-ups"
I cycle this 3 times with 1 minute pauses between each number. Is this ok or am I actually counter productive?
