Hey there. I have two questions about calisthenics in the PTG. I've read the PTG and used the search function on the forum, but couldn't come up with conclusive answers.
How fast should I be doing my calisthenic exercises (especially push-ups)? The guide does say that they should be done slowly and controlled (slower than on the PST ), but that doesn't really tell me exactly how slow. In a training video with Mike Caviston in it, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmH2UfFBrN8) he does them quite slowly, but says that this could be the cadence for 10 push ups.
So should I be doing them faster, because the PTG requires more reps? How slow do you do your push ups? Any recommendations?
Secondly, I'm wondering what's meant with "If your max is" in the push-, pull- & sit-ups table of the PTG? Is it the maximum number of reps I'm currently able to do in a PST (2 mins)? Or maximum number of consecutive reps without rest?
Thanks in advance & excuse me if this has already been covered.
