    Anyone here combine regular lifting with calisthenics?

    Calisthenics has always appealed to me the way you can control your body and still have some pretty good strength. As the title asks, does anyone do both? Be interested to see what anyones workouts look like and do you find the 2 complement each other?

    its called pullups.

    BW exercises are not magic, and while many are useful, most are far less effective than simple barbell movements.

    Getting more advanced that pullups and dips, being about to do a planche, handstands, flag etc... A lot of the cali movements are great for upper body but I love lifting weights too and especially lower body stuff is way better with free weights.

    Any particular people/programs you think are best to follow?
    Do you do it for the fitness aspect or are you into the crazy stuff like levers and flags etc?
