I am a former swimmer and had an athletic body till high school. After this, I dropped sports altogether except occasionally playing football. As a result, I got fat and out of shape. So I started running and gym. But after a while, I got fed up with the smell, atmosphere of the gym and negative egocentric people it was full of. So I quit the gym and decided to train in the park. One day a friend saw me doing some bodyweight exercises and he asked me if I was training for calisthenics. I didn’t know what calisthenics meant and had to ask him. I came home and researched on YouTube about it. I came across Frank Medrano and I was stunned by the stuff I saw him doing. Next day I got back in the park and tried to emulate him and realized the difficulty of his simple looking moves. I found some books on calisthenics and came across Convict Conditioning by Paul Wade. His advice changed my views about calisthenics. Since then (2015), I've been training like freak and let it be sun, rain or snow you will find me working hard outside. After all these years I have developed an impressive physique and can do all those moves seen on YouTube which were impossible back then. I owe calisthenics so much and I can’t imagine a life without it.

My 4 Years Calisthenics Journey:
WHAT IS CALISTHENICS?
Calisthenics is best described as an art form utilizing your bodyweight for training. The beauty of calisthenics lies in the fact that you need not rely on external sources to train your body, your body itself becomes your gym. It is in essence bodyweight training.
The word CALISTHENICS comes from Greek words kalos meaning beautiful and sthenos meaning strength. It is an art of using one’s own bodyweight and inertia as a means to develop one’s physique.
Calisthenics not only help you master your own bodyweight but it also helps you pack slabs of lean muscles on you. Plus, you don’t have to worry about muscle imbalances and aesthetics as calisthenics naturally maximizes your body’s natural potential and transforms couch potato bodies into Greek God physique.
WHAT IS ‘OLD SCHOOL CALISTHENICS’?
It is an old time honored training system which leads to mastery of human body through bodyweight training. For centuries men used to train with calisthenics to become the best version of themselves. We are all familiar with jaw-dropping physiques of Roman Gladiators, Greeks and Spartans.
