Finally made a video of some of the stuff I do at the park.
Wow its been almost 2 years since I have lifted weights heavy weights at a gym and I still continue to gain muscle and keep up my fitness level. Never knew my back looked like this lol.
5x rounds with 3 mins rest in between
10 Kettle ball swings
20 pull ups
30 push ups
So been doing paleo kinda for about 3 weeks. It sucks not eating pasta, but within the first week I lost 5lbs of what idk. Im havent lost or gained any since. I think it got rid of some bloatyness. My abs seem to be coming in more as well . We will see how this goes.
Did a free workout at a crossfit gym too. 7 wall balls then 7 burpees as many rounds as I can in 7 mins. I think I will join the gym in a few weeks. But I will still do my Calisthenics stuff on the side.
Breakfast: ham/egg omlet
Snack: Some form of fruit smothie/ nuts/ or fruits (grapes, apple, banana)
Lunch: Normally a loaded salad , unless I can find something else
Dinner: This is the hard one I eat alot of fish/shrimp/lean meats/ I just have a hard time finding stuff to go with it.
I always go back and forth as to what I want to do. I enjoy both but just not sure which one I should put my all into
Can do it anywhere any time
You can accomplish some amazing feats
Calisthenics Cons :
Lack of training partners
Gets boring at times
I miss weights
Varity of workouts
Loss of control over workouts
Restricted to one place and certain times
What I may do is just a combo of both, but once I pick up running track again next season something will have to budge.
Challenge of the Week:
Complete as many muscles ups as you can with out touching the ground. If you cant do a muscle up do regular pull ups.
Completed: 15 muscle ups.
* Its crazy how just 3 months ago I did my first muscle up and could barley do more than one at a time. With hard work I’m up to 15, wonder where ill be in another 3 months .
Just dont let this be you!
See what I did there, get it get it ! My version of the WOD. Well to put more content on there I will be challenging all of you and myself to a challenge of the week. These will be all bodyweight/calisthenics stuff.
COW #1 - Dips
Perform as many dips as you can straight. Full extension at the top and get deep.
I completed 72 dips.
Working on the human flag. Took me about a month to be able to do it. But I am far from where I want to be.

5 muscle ups
25 pull ups
55 push ups
5 muscle ups
Three milestones in one day, Held a handstand with no wall for 60 sec twice, held a one hand handstand against wall, and held a modified flag pole.
