Weight Lifting Vs Calisthenics

Calisthenics Or Weight Lifting?

Which one is more effective?

Calisthenics or weight lifting?

Lots of beginners struggle with this issue trying to figure out with which method to train.

I used to wonder a lot about this issue when I was still a beginner too.

Having no access to equipment, I started training with calisthenics. I started reading books and blogs about calisthenics as well. The problem was that most of the sources I was getting the information from were dogmatic and hold a negative view towards weight lifting. Because it’s easier to accept other people’s opinions than to think for one’s self, I became dogmatic as well.

The main reason I am writing this post is because there are lots of training resources that are still very dogmatic and biased towards one method or the other.

With this post, you will be able to get the full picture.
