I was wondering if I could gain size and strength doing this calisthenics split routine? I was taught that stimulation is stimulation, the body doesn't care if it's from a dumbbell or your own body weight. A lot of the main calisthenic exercises (push ups, pull ups, dips etc...) are compound movements, and if I keep the rep ranges in between 6-12, I should be able to make gains in strength should I not?
I plan on keeping the rep ranges in between 6-12 by adding weight to the exercises when I exceed 12 reps. This guy seemed to do well on a calisthenic routine, granted he did a full body routine 3x a week not training to failure, while I on the other hand would train every working set to failure, while doing a SPLIT routine. Do you MY routine would yield positive results?
By the way, here's the video of the guy I was talking about:
My routine: (Not all, but the majority of them are calisthenics)
Day 1: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps:
Push Ups: 4-6setsx6-12reps
Shoulder DB Press: 3setsx6-12reps
Day 3: Legs:
Bulgarian Split Squat: 4-6setsx6-12reps
RDL/Swiss Ball Curl: 2-3setsx6-12reps
Calf Raises: 3-4setsx6-12reps
Day 5: Back and Biceps:
Pull Ups: 3setsx6-12reps
Inverted Rows: 3setsx6-12reps
Chin Ups: 2-3setsx6-12reps
All suggestions are appreciated, thanks!
