        Why do people lift weights?

        >Because they are vain and believe picking up dumb iron looks cool. The only reason anyone would lift weights is to show off.

        Itt a ton of retards call other people's hobbies stupid. Calisthenics is cool, also lifting heavy ass weights is cool, also just looking jacked is cool. All the other cool things people do, those things are cool too. I was swimming and saw a fatass do some dope flips into a lake yesterday, and I though it was cool. Stop being a cocksucker trying to call shit uncool just because it's not your thing.

          No, it absolutely isn't. Training is specific. So if you're training squats, you'll get stronger sure, but you're mostly adapting your muscles and nervous system to that specific movement. The guy that is more functional is usually going to be the one that trains for the kind of work they will have to do.

      lol completely wrong. I did it for a while because it is free, faster and more convenient. Surely you can not gain as much strength doing calisthenics, but for aesthetics it is completely enough. After I switched to gym my lifts were around 1.2/2/2.5/3, pl8 so yes legs do lag behind, but other than that, it will make you fairly strong.

      I had a fucked up body from years of insendentary lifestyle plus bad posture and tried weightlifting first, and even with autistic focus on form I still plateau'd and got injured.

      I gave up fitness for a few years, and started calisthenics after that. I've fixed pretty much all of my problems and didn't get any new ones, so i just stuck with it. I'll admit that weightlifting is way faster gains but squats, deadlift, bench, OHP, barbell rows, etc never felt natural to me

I ain't coming back to the gym useless is a martial arts gym, not for weights. My bones, joints, energy, will, power, agility, explosion, everything is stronger now. Plus, it makes me feel a lot better after the workout, thing that didn't felt with weights, I've felt worse, fatigued.

      I don't know about other people, but I absolutely abhor gyms in general. They are loud, obnoxious, dirty, sweaty and all around unpleasant. Also, I don't give a shit about "socializing", I already have a nice, stable circle of friends and a girlfriend.

      I switched to a mostly calisthenics-based routine a couple years ago and never looked back. Not having to go to the gym to work out is reason enough for me to keep my current routine.

      I mostly agree - you can probably get a bit bigger than that, but not by much.
      I am 1m84, pretty lean (see pic) and I weight around 87kg while only training about 3.5h a week. I think I could get to a lean 93kg if I trained more (but I don't have the time, and I don't really want to)

    They both achieve different things with overlap afaik.
    Calisthenics is harder to make excuses for and i think you should be able to do all the things barring genetics/injuries. Bellys hate it because they can't make any excuses and it really shows the difference in health between bellys and skellys. Skellys love it because it makes them feel more fit than they are when they can read about diet-dodgers failing the simplest bodyweight exercises.

    yes goy, spend $50 a month on a gym membership and waste hours a week traveling there and back, consooming fuel and convenient foods like protein shakes and bars and plastic bottles.

    You don't need a gym or weights to achieve high intermediate / advanced strength standards. You'll only need about $100-$150 worth of equipment to achieve the highest strength standards.

    The caveat is that most lifters don't have the cardiovascular endurance to achieve results with lower weights, and they gas out really quickly, since they don't train their endurance at all.

    99% of calisthenics only fags are small and/or dyel.
    To get big you have to lift weights, whether it's weighted calisthenics or weightlifting. No way around it.
    FitnessFAQs does weighted calisthenics and weightlifting, so he's living proof of that.
