Is that so? Well then I'll have quite a bit to try out now. Thanks for the info once again this is all quite interesting stuff.
That's an odd way of thinking about strength. You've got 3 kinds of strength (explosive, max, endurance) and 1 strength in a body part/region (core)

The most punishing and beneficial program I ever tried only worked variations on 5 movements. Squat, press, lunge, pull, and plank (in that order, as a circuit). Add in weights, twisting movements, and unstable surfaces like dynadiscs, and suddenly you are hitting everything from every angle.
I get why you'd make your point about the specific body part. But what Im assuming he means is that core strength is often times considered the cornerstone of all athletic movements, so unto itself it is pretty important, some people refer to it as stabilization strength.

This is a programme I recently put together.

i suggest you that body weight should be more effective than weight lifting.if u have ideal body weight than u can do better weight lifting.and if u have heavy weight than u cant give better performance.
Evn if ur spelling and grammer were reasanable ud still be wrong. Plz tell me englush is not ur 1st language.

It mostly depends on what your actual goal is. If you are wanting to win a powelifting competition, then bodyweight exercises are not going to help. If you are wanting to win a pull up competition then weight lifting is not the best training method.
In order to have better functional strength, you need to do functional exercises. You can get bigger using bodeweight exercises. You just need to raise the intensity level of the exercises. Chinups -> Pullups -> One arm pullups -> Muscle ups -> One arm Muscle ups. No need for weights for that. Pushups -> One arm pushups -> Elevated pusshups -> Elevated one arm pushups -> Plyometric pushups -> Hand stand pushups. Squats -> Jumping squats -> Pistol squats -> Jumping Pistol squats -> Squats jumping onto and off park bench...
There is a lot out there before you really need to lift a weight. Unless your goal is to reach your bench press one-rep-max.
Also, compound movements with bodyweight exercises encorperate the core, so you don't ahve to focus on it in isolation. But if you want to, leave your legs strait out while performing all pull ups and hold the pushup position in the up position.
I personally think that weight lifting is a henderance to most people, but that is my own opinion. Based on years spent in the gym. Rarely do people work out with the intensity that they should. They do a set of bench press then stand up, walk to get water, look in the mirror for a little while, stretch the pecs a little, then do 10 more reps on the bench and repeat.

kettlebell workouts give you “cardio
without the dishonour of aerobics”.
How long do you reccomend holding for?
