You’ve discovered calisthenics.
Exciting, isn’t it?
Training with just your body weight. Actually it’s a combination of several different elements: Skill, strength and flexibility.
And if you’re looking for a healthier, stronger and more muscular body then calisthenics is a MUST.
For a long time in history, people did nothing other than calisthenics. Those days are long gone.
Make no mistake: Working out with weights definitely works. But in a lot of cases it’s not nearly as effective as training with your own body weight.
Becoming a master at calisthenics requires a serious investment (motivation, time and sweat).
Because high level skills require a lot of time to learn. And going from no activity to doing handstands or chin ups isn’t easy.
But when you understand how calisthenics works, the rewards are HUGE: the world becomes your gym and your body becomes stronger and more capable than you could have ever imagined.
