    1 month bodyweight program to start muscle building journey

    (Skip to the asterisk if you dont wanna read the background)

    So ive lifted at three different points in my life but I always ended up failing.

    1st was my first season of football when i was embarrassed to lift in front of my stronger teammates and cheated myself often.

    2nd was my second time playing football my junior year of HS and again, I was behind the curve so I never pushed myself due to ego. I did get "up" to 135 on bench 180 on squat but my form was always trash and i cheated my reps constantly.

    I went back to the gym a few months ago but i was weak as hell and gave up.

    Next month ill be back in range of a gym again and Im going to sign up. I realize though that just sitting around and doing nothing until then is pointless and want to utilize calisthenics and bodyweight programs for the next month to prepare myself. I figure if i can lift my bodyweight by the time i go back to the gym ill be much more comfortable.

    * So I want to build beginners muscles all over through calisthenics and bodyweight exercises so that when i go to the gym in a month i can lift more confidently and have a headstart so to speak. I can barely do like 10 pushups, 1 pullup, etc right now. Yes im THAT much of a beginner.

    What calisthenics program/form building programs would you suggest I do that last a month? Im gonna be eating 3000 calories a day with 180g protein (1g per lb) along with this workout.

    A month of bodyweight exercises won't give you a "headstart" of any kind. When you begin to move some actual weights and do the exercises, that'll put some muscle on you, you still need to learn proper form. Learning how to squat, bench, row etc... so get into the gym and start learning...

    I cant. I wont have access to a gym until late June. And im looking for a program that will help me improve my form so that when i get to the gym im comfortable with the motions. Calisthenics definitely help, its not like they do nothing.

    It actually is like they do nothing, especially when you're only doing it for a month. And there's no amount of single-legged bodyweight squats that'll teach your body how to brace itself under the weight of a loaded barbell. Or how to press through your heels, instead of your toes. You can believe whatever bullshít, you want to, but you'll be sorely dissappointed, once you finally pick up the weights again. You can't improve the form of an exercise, unless you're actually doing the exercise.

    You can't improve your form doing barbell exercises without having a barbell...

    That's like saying I'm improving my surgery skills by working on my car.

    if you want to do calisthenics that's fine. better than nothing. however like Viking said it won't teach you the basics and the mechanics of barbell training and you won't build an appreciable amount of muscle in a month, especially just doing high rep calisthenics.

    and also

    what will prevent you from quitting the 4th time? If you've quit all of those times before.

    Eat more and do pull ups,push ups and try to get access to a gym it help help tremendously especially on your leg development nothing is better than squats,deadlifts, presses etc for a football player. Many of the great football athletes lift weights and eat like crazy whats your stats at and what position do you play?
