I'm just trying to learn what I can, and find a balance. I've had people beating me over the head about how horrible weight training is and how weight trainers have no strength and how wonderful bodyweight excercises are. By learning what I can about them now, the next time I hear a tirade I can just refrence the stuff I learn here and tell them otherwise. (To be honest, I've done it several times already. They never really listen.)
I do know that I need to drastically simplify my routine. I was doing way to many excercises trying to target as many muscle groups as I could.
I can think of TWO advantages to bodyweight excercises.
1. I don't need anyone to spot me.
2. I don't need anyone to spot me.
But that's it.
Do calisthenic excercises (overall) target more muscle groups than free weight excercises?
I'm looking at the chin up
page right now and it's got 12 synergists.
And exactly what would I do if I wanted to intigrate some bodyweight excercises into my routine?
