I don't have a specific workout plan, but if you go to the main page of APK and go to W.O.D. under the Fitness section of the menu.   That's always a good place to start.   I'm still working on just the warmup myself, for someone as out of shape as I am it's pretty much a full workout by itself.

Alright but thats kinda vauge I get the fitness thing and all on the home page but like a good 25 pull ups 25 sits 25 push ups like specifics. A good plan to get you in shape that improves core strength to do some of the movements more easier. So far I havent found one im to impressed with. I have read up on some of the W.O.D ones and it doesnt make to much sense. So could you possibly give specifics on a good workout plan?

Something I do after every climbing session as my after-workout workout, but might be a good way to get into shape:

Pushups 25 millitary style (elbows go straight back)

10 pull-ups

5 leg lifts (hang on pull-up bar and lift STRAIGHT legs up above your hands)

25 fist pushups

10 pullups

6 rainbows (Legs straigt hanging from pull-up bar, create an arc from right to left with your legs, then go back from right to left)

25 diamond pushups

10 pullups

5 leg lifts

25 wide hands pushups

10 pullups

6 rainbows.

You can vary the number of each excersize depending on how much you can do. I've found this is a great way to keep everything worked pretty well as far as upper body is concerned. try to do this with only 1 minute rest between excersizes. If you wanted you could also add in squats too after the pushups, 30 would be a good number I think. Make sure you do some cardio before this so that you are warmed up.

Um. Yeah.

You need goals before you should want a workout plan. Otherwise it's just working out for no reason at all.. which makes developing much, much slower.

Also, I don't see whats THAT bad about the APK WOD. They're generally tough enough for most people unless you already have a very good level of fitness.

I didn't even mean that. You shouldn't workout just for the sake of working out... that's all I'm saying (well, it would be better than doing nothing though :)). At least have some goal to work towards because it will go much faster.

Oh I have a goal like right now im sarting at 25 push ups and hoping by the end of the month hitting 45 to 50 those are my goals kind of. Sorry if i mis read what you type'd. And liek you said At least its better than nothing. Right now im tryin to gain arm and upper body strength cause i have done track for 4 years now so my legs are in good top shape. But after an ankle injury im working on strengthening my ankles so i can get them back up to par. Would you have any recommended excersises for that cause all i know of is ankle rolls?

You can do some good rehab work with therabands. Calf raises and anterior tibialis raises (with a weighted backpack on your foot sitting on a counter). There's other stuff.. search through some of the threads in the general fitness forum.

40 triangle pushups

200 jumpingjacks, when your good enough (:-()

20 ab muscle ups (hang upsidedown from a bar and touch your head to your knees then back down, slowly)

A good plan for push-ups is to do them in the evening and morning. Do 25 (and 25 in the evening), then, next day do 26, then 27. If you will fail, very quickly get up and continue for as long as it takes to do that number of push-ups. It is kind of tedious and requires lots of dedication but I could do 55 push-ups per minute so see for yourself :)

I'm trying to adapt this for bar-dips and see if it works.
