      Because they can't hypertrophy using just their own bodyweight so they use eachothers (by having gay sex)

    The original book was so stupid. It was just a shitty calisthenics progression system and a bunch of yeah bro I bench 350 from pushups bro.

    Weighted calisthenics exercises are great, just do that instead of doing some gay tricks on the pull-up bar

    Mass gain comes down to genetics.
    As for calisthenics themselves they are extremely effective.

      >Mass gain comes down to genetics.
      It comes down to progressive overload and eating
      >As for calisthenics themselves they are extremely effective.
      Without adding weight, they will be less and less effective after each exercise

    If you want to be a bodyweight purist go the Gymnastics Strength Training route instead. Calisthenics is just watered-down Gymnastics, designed to roll out to large populations of students/soldiers quickly and with minimal coaching effort. As an individual trainee, you don't need that assembly-line shit, and can reap huge benefits by going deeper.

    >lift weights do gear
    >write a book saying you didn't
    >I'm supposed to take the "honest" advice of these bummers that market themselves as "convicts"
    I do weighted calisthenics primarily since my gym shut it's doors but trying to optimize calisthenics is pretty foolish in general though. I think you're better off going to a gym and if you take calisthenics serious you should probably go to a calisthenics gym, gymnastics gym or at least do calisthenics in a group with people who can coach you. For everything calisthenics lacks in weights it makes up for in the demand for coaching, form, concise programming, connective tissue maintenance and prehab. It's just so much easier to go lift weights and I would say that's a lot safer for fat idiots and novices which is what most of this board is.

      I forgot to say that :

      I have some Olympic rings
      I don't have any money (100€/month/kek)
      there's a barely built calisthenics park half an hour away from my house
      I find gyms expensive (i can buy qn Olympic barbell and discs for that price in max 6 months or less)
      and... I find kind of gay to be among men who look at themselves in the mirror like the ones on the cover of this book
      I appreciate your comments though

        rings are pretty good with even a little as 40 lbs ring dips, RTO pushups, ring flyes, ring pullovers. Is enough to build chest which is probably the hardest thing to grow on calisthenics next to legs. Pelican curls a are brutal mass gainers for biceps even without any weights. Your shoulders and forearms usually blow up with support hold work of any kind. You can do ring facepulls and stuff for pre-hab on shoulders (just make sure you do them right) Can even do ring hamstring curls in the absence of something you can do nordic curls on. They're even terrific for practicing things like pistol squats if you set them low enough you can only support yourself a little at the very bottom of the rep (not that pistol squats are much of mass gainer even when weighted because the stability demands are too high). Keeping the ring height and foot placement consistent between workouts (to create the specific incline) is probably the hardest part. Helps with marked bands and chalk/tape or something you can mark your floor with.

        A 50 lb bag of concrete is about $5 and you can probably just make a harness for it out of duct tape if you're really hard up and creative.

    Ah, it's All Kavadlo's "Coach" LARP again. That shit was so fucking hilarious.
    Also that cover is shooped to the max. picrel is what he really looks like. Not bad, but not like a pro bodybuilder either.

    25 bucks for a book seems a scam
    The question is finding something like this but no "religion-tier" one just practical like your comments ... Maybe some good chart or two
    Also YouTube channel "calisthenics & weight training" seems do it, but he goes to a gym anyways...
