The Best Gloves For Calisthenics Beginners

Confess it!

You’ve done the unthinkable. You’ve tried calisthenics without gloves and your hands hurt.

You’re bugged that even the most simple exercises feel like lava running down your soft and delicate skin.

But before you throw in the towel of defeat, know this – it’s never an easy road to a place worth going.

If it were, you probably wouldn’t want to be there.

 

So don’t hold up the white flag.

You can build a layer of indestructible skin on your hands that will make any glove obsolete.

“Get 10 one arm push ups by sitting on the couch for 10 days”.

“Do nothing and get everything you want”.

“Quit training and look ripped.”

Improve your calisthenics workouts with these books

2 Essential Books To Improve Your Calisthenics Workouts

When you want to develop a new skill, what do you do?

Do you just try, or do you look for people who have done it before?

Do you ask for advice?

Or do you just despair at the gap between what you want to do an what you actually can do?

 

Most of us are unhappy with what we look like and with what we can do.

We feel demotivated. Incomplete. Not good enough.

That is if we just keep looking at those on the other side. Like the young kid ‘leaning against the window’ with the dream to become a pilot as he watches big airplanes disappear in the clouds.

 

Instead of looking, start reading.

Instead of being demotivated, start asking.

Instead of thinking you aren’t genetically gifted, start realising that as long as you have a beating hart, there is something to learn.

How? Start by reading these books.  (more…)

The Biological Hack For Optimal Training Time

Training is a battle.

A war against your own physical and mental limitations.

Your biggest enemy? The amount of excuses you can come up with.

This battle isn’t one for the weak. The naïve. The impatient.

 

You’ll need to embrace the pain of being a beginner again. New challenges. New routines. New soreness.

But none of those things matter if you don’t train at all.

So before you go further down the rabbit hole of calisthenics training, you better make sure you know what the best time is to do so.

 

The key?

Knowing how your body responds to the time at which you train, is something you must learn.

The battlefield is right in front of you and you have the opportunity to write the heroes’ story.

So when you enter the calisthenics arena, arm yourself with this knowledge.

And keep fighting the good fight.

Everybody is counting on you. (more…)
