[Example Bodyweight Beast Workout] –

Can you build muscle, size and strength with only bodyweight workouts? YES
For more hypertrophy use slow and controlled movements with focused mind muscle connection.
For strength use explosive type movements going as fast as possible.

And then, logically, eat more calories. You are the resistance so as your weight goes up so does your muscular size and strength as long as you maintain or beat your previous exercise performance goals. This is the “positive loophole” of bodyweight training.

Bodyweight Beast uses a combination of bodybuilding and strength movements to ensure the maximum size and strength when it comes to structuring a bodyweight training plan. Don’t have a gym? want to get stronger and bigger but still be athletic? then this program is for you. Get it now

    When it comes to eating healthy, you have to try not to fall victim to modern fad diet plans. Extreme diets are a danger for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your daily nutritionary intake. While they may generate quick weight loss, these diet plans are never a long-term answer for your waistline. You should check out Fenoboci Diet Plan on the internet since it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

    well I'm still losing weight to get rid of my belly (almost there 🙂 ), so no I'm definitely not going to eat 500 kcal more than I burn each day. Don't want to get the weight I worked hard to lose, back.

    Of course I'm working out every second day.

    For people nitpicking the Medrano/Heath comparison, I apologize, you're right, the comparison is not the best. What I propose is that if you really want to be up in arms about it is that you go ahead and find me a calisthenics ONLY individual (which, respectfully, Medrano is not) and then I'll be happy to provide you a natural bodybuilder for comparison. And if you're still going to argue about it, then I have nothing else to share with you. Remember, this video is about whether calisthenics can build muscle (which it can), but lifting weights will clearly be a more efficient and effective route.

    If you add weights it's no longer called bodyweight exercises? You are simulating a heavier body so of course it is called that. These exercises are more about technique than the weight it self. By your definition if I shove a bar through both of my thighs and start doing bicep curls I can still call that a bodyweight exercise =))

    There are over 250 different styles of push-ups & elite calisthenic athletes come up with new ones every year. Just last week I learned of a style of push-ups that I never heard of nor saw anyone do 2 months ago. There are over 180 different styles of arm flexion / pulling movements. Even the most elite calisthenic athletes struggle trying to do them all & many are still increasing in size and strength. All I do is body weight, and since I came up with routines, I've been increasing about a .5 to 1.5 centimeters a week on my chest, my glutes, legs, and arms … with just body weight. I stopped using weights 2 years ago, unless of course I'm adding weight to myself

    Gymnasts don't use weights to push their maximum potential…..most use weights (dumbells mainly) as supplemental movements, NOT for the strength or muscle development…..that comes from years of bodyweight movements like iron cross (which is where gymnasts get their great biceps and shoulders) and iso-holds.  You got a lot of holes in this video…..the medrano heath comparison being the worst…..guess you forgot to mention heath's massive roid/gh/food consumption

    Although weights are effective for building muscle mass, I really owe my strength, speed, and flexibility to calisthenics. When I hit weights I only really do cleans and bench. I notice that the stronger I get using calisthenics, the more weight I can handle externally when I do use them. I believe calisthenics are a more useful tool to use in everyday life, what situation are you ever going to need to clean or bench or curl in your daily life? I find that calisthenics increase my aerobic ability as well as my strength and the result is a very fit and well rounded physique. Pullups have made my arms and back huge, pushups have made my chest big as well, squats done in high repetition are easy on my joints and very effective on my quadriceps. Both weights and calisthenics are effective but my reasoning for calisthenics being superior is the fact that it can be done anywhere at anytime and grants anybody the ability to get fit when time is tight. I don't think fitness is the ability to bench over 400 lbs, because people who get huge lifting weights have hardly any cardiovascular ability. I use calisthenics everyday in the morning, a very good routine, I hardly ever run but when I do I always consistently run a mile in under 6 minutes, one of my better times I recorded being 5:44. Again both variations are effective this is just my 2 cents. Have a great day everybody!

    I once tried to get my abs visible by doing abdominal exercises. Most ab exercises fall under calisthenics or Bodyweight. And a lot of them can be done with no equipment at all. I'm sure I could find a way to make my own exercise equipment instead of having to buy it. Weights especially can be found all over the place at home, jars, cans, they can all act as weights on the muscle.

    So now I will try a high protein diet to help burn off fat and build some muscle. I am female so my myostatin is lower but that is fine. If I will still be overweight, I would rather that weight be from muscle than from fat.

    But I have a question about becoming muscular. Should I have 1 target muscle for each stage or should I do full body workouts?

    Here is why I think I should stage it by the target muscle:

    For one, a lot of exercises have secondary muscle groups. Like for example, any abdominal exercise has either the chest muscles or the glutes as a secondary muscle group. This means that I would be indirectly exercising quite a few muscle groups.

    Also I have noticed personally that I have to take it slow, at least with ab exercises and while I could probably do multiple sets of arm and leg exercises without getting sore muscles, I should probably go 1 set at a time anyway to prevent injury.

    This is how it is for me with abdominal exercises:

    Week 1: 1 set of 10
    Week 2: 2 sets of 10
    Week 3: 3 sets of 10
    Week 4: add new exercise starting that new exercise at 1 set of 10 and keeping the old exercise at a steady 3 sets of 10

    So basically every month, a new exercise gets added. And every week my volume slowly increases as I increase the number of sets.

    I don't try to reach a specific number of any particular exercise since that can lead to muscle injury. I have had muscle injury to my abs, both chronic and acute.

    Chronic muscle injury:

    I do good on slowly increasing my sets until at some point, I increase my sets by 1 the day after I get DOMS instead of a week later. This injures the muscle but not to the point that I can't exercise at all, just to the point of pain. I stop for 2 months and then start again and it still hurts. I stop for a year and it doesn't hurt, my muscle is completely healed. But it has also gotten back to baseline size. It has wasted away.

    Acute muscle injury:

    I start off with too many sets or I use my muscle in a way that is so new that I pull a muscle. At first there is only pain but in a few days the muscle gets harder to exercise until I can't do anything with the muscle. After 2 weeks of rest, it is completely healed.

    This is why I want to go slow, set by set, muscle by muscle, injury prevention. Even if muscle building takes years for just 1 muscle group, I would rather go slow and get muscular after years of exercise than go faster at the risk of acute or chronic muscle injury. If I get an acute muscle injury, I might be able to decrease the number of sets by just 1 or 2 after the injury. If I get a chronic muscle injury, I will have to start over for that injured muscle. So should I do 1 set of 1 exercise for 1 muscle at a time to prevent injury or do multiple exercises for different muscles on the same day that could make me more at risk of cramps or worse, injury?

    When the two guys popped up the first thing i thought was the guy who uses weights looks disgusting and the bodyweight guys looks sick, So not only do bodyweight guys look better but they Perform better in everything compared to a fbodybuilder with a few exercises for example, A body builder can lift more weights……Congratulations……Now try to run…The human body is DESIGNED mostly for bodyweight exercises i mean how many thousands of years did the human race use bodyweight exercises ……So im saying bodybuilders can ONLY lift more and that as far as they go when it comes too be "Stronger", But can they climb a 50-100m wall (Which is small), run at least 10ks(Which is a warm up), swim a kilometre(which is refreshing), etc not to mention the health benefits of being all round fit compared to having just big biceps and chest hahaah (This isnt for 'PictureFit' its for people who dont know anything about bodyweight) For me i go 75-80% bodyweight for everything including heart health and 20-25% weights for those high load muscles..

    Weighted calisthenics is still calisthenics, do real research on weighted calisthenics and calisthenics, calisthenics isn't a direct translation to body weight
