Not Getting Results with Calisthenics?

By | For beginners, How to, Special, Success Stories, Workouts | No Comments

Right now, anyone who wants to change his/her physical appearance through calisthenics can find solid information about it online. It is not a secret anymore. You just google “how to lose fat”, “how to get results with calisthenics” or “how to build muscle with calisthenics” and you find the steps you need to take.

But still, the majority of people don’t get the results they want. You may be in this situation or you may know somebody who is. Also, many individuals start a training routine for a couple of months and then they quit. Or, they stick to a diet for a short period of time, lose some body fat and then they gain it all back quickly.

So the question pops up: Why? Why these people don’t go all the way to achieve the physique they wanted to achieve? What stopped them? It’s not because of lack of information or lack of time. It’s not even lack of motivation. You may say it’s the lack of discipline, effort and so on. But what is the source of all this apparent causes for failure?

How to train using Convict Conditioning?

By | Convict Conditioning, for advanced athletes, For beginners, for intermediate athletes, How to, Special, Success Stories, Workouts | No Comments

Hey convicts,

I’m a big fan of the Convict Conditioning books and I’ve been training based on their system for sufficient time to realize how to maximize my results. Convict Conditioning book’s purpose is to increase maximal strength utilizing 6 progressive calisthenics exercises broken into 10 steps of increasing difficulty. The training system starts with the easiest possible step (exercises like wall pushups) and progressively moves further to the hardest step, like the almighty one arm pullup.

Everybody knows that the training methods used in the Convict Conditioning books are meant to work the nervous system for strength gains rather than the muscular system for aesthetics. But from my experience I realized something else, and the truth is that the books teach us how to attain a brutally strong body as well as how to gain solid muscles – like the Greek Statues illustrate. The fact is that many of you have so little results with either, but the good part is that you have in your hands one of the most powerful tools to start to forge your body into something like the books want you to become. You only need to understand how to utilize them properly. And fear not! I will help you understand how to do it.

Where can I train?

By | For beginners, Workouts | No Comments

In this article I want to answer some frequently asked questions that bother many beginners. Some of them are –

I can’t do workouts when people staring at me!

When I first started calisthenics I felt very uncomfortable of working out in front of other people. I didn’t want to make myself looking stupid if I failed to do something cool. I was afraid of making myself a laughing stock.
But then slowly I realized that people didn’t stare at me because of that, they were just curious about my workouts because calisthenics are not so common.
You should not concern yourself with other’s opinions. Focus on what you are doing instead of thinking what other’s might be thinking about you. As a matter of fact, calisthenics are best performed in unconventional places, where people are present. Just think of them as spectators who are there to cheer you. You will find that you begin to perform better when others are looking at you. Use this as a motivation, as a stepping stone and your fears will vanish in thin air before long.
