calisthenics is good if you want to be more mobile gym is better for faster results and easier, also will get you bigger than calisthenics
2021-12-08 00:13
calisthenics you can do anywhere anytime but gym targets muscles better
2021-12-08 00:17
The only thing that might be worth it in calisthenics is skill moves like human flag because those look sick Otherwise just use free weights to build muscle imo

It is worth time but arm yourself with patience. I am working taebo for example and needed almost 2 years to achieve what my friends did in 4 month at gym. But it pays off. Strenght you gain in probabaly closest to perfect and you are doing minimal damage to your body.

Random gym question: On a lat pulldown cable machine, are the weights labeled x but are actually double that? I used this one machine that isn't a typical cable machine for lat pulldowns and I did like 55 kg, and on this traditional double pulley lat pulldown machine, it felt like 25 kg was equally difficult. Is it possible that the weight on each plate is labeled per pulley, and therefore you need to double that weight for the total weight lifted?

Weights on machines are all over the place, it even differs from machine to machine But i don't think it's halved since i can do like 20 bodyweight rows and like 12 reps on the machine with 80kg

I can send a conversion list in lbs if that helps...

Do both, calisthenics makes your hamstrings stronger and increases your strength, which will help in gym

if you want to gain muscle with the best time / gain ratio and if you want to hit the limits of your muscles you have to go to a gym and exercise in the traditional way (with good protein intake)
2021-12-08 03:42
calisthenics are great, but at some point they will get too easy so you'll either have to do too long sets or put some extra weight on them and me personally never could develop great legs with just calisthenics (i def needed heavy squats & deadlifts)
2021-12-08 06:18
no just squat 7 times a week and try Olympic weightlifting

I would say 2 days in gym and 2 days doing calisthenics , is good if you interested in calisthenics, most calisthenic atheles go to the gym too.
2021-12-08 06:30
calisthenics good machines good free weights good all above together = the best
