Anyone incorporate the Naked Warrior protocol in their training? http://www.dragondoor.com/b28/
I've read it a few years ago, and recently have been trying to just move more throughout my day to day. A-la Mark Sisson's move frequently at a low pace".
Anyone have success with this, and do you view these on recovery/off days?

I've been focusing more on body weight exercises in general since last year. I've seen good strength, conditioning and mobility gains. I don't follow Pavel's protocol specifically but I draw influence from several sources. Here are a few of them...
free Internet resources
- Ross Enamait's website and forums - http://www.rosstraining.com
- Al Kavadlo's website - http://www.alkavadlo.com
- Bar-barians forum contests - http://www.bar-barians.com
- Gymnastic Bodies forum - http://www.gymnasticbodies.com
- Various YouTube channels
- Never Gymless - Ross Enamait
- Convict Conditioning I and II - Paul Wade
There are lots of other great resources... Pavel being one of them.

I did some "You Are Your Own Gym" workouts for a while. Think I went up to the level before "elite". Felt to me as though the advanced movements became far more technique oriented and did not advance my strength and conditioning as much. This is not to the detriment if someone is interested in performing gymnastic type maneuvers.
Comes back to your goals in exercise. Mine were to "exercise" less and "play" more. That led me to a HIT approach, and then I go jump on the trampoline with my kids or play backyard ball or pound out 70+ pushups or 20+ pullups just for fun.
Let me also say I've done so many different programs through my life that I mostly feel a new program is not inherently going to be better or worse than ones you have done before. Continuing to try new things that challenge you and keep you moving is the key.
