1. Fitness
2. The challenge
3. I love the look on their faces when the young muscle heads at the gym see a grey-haired 40-year-old guy banging out muscle ups. Very Happy

Yeah, that must be fun Jay!

Actually, not really #3 for me, but it is very amusing!

I just love the beauty of using your very own bodyweight to develop strength, stamina, power, balance, coordination and flexibility. The exhilaration of reaching goals such as muscle ups or handstand push-ups is a rush I've never felt before. Mentally and emotionally, I also feel at peace while doing calisthenics. It's almost therapeutic - there's no better feeling. And to see some of those difficult skills done slowly with grace and power is almost like a kind of bar yoga!

LOVE - #1 reason for me since I started is the strong love for this particular type of training. Gymnastics is incredible to me of course but the reason I love this freestyle so much more is cause of that word, free (freedom). Gymnastics is so much about perfection. Pointing, straightening etc. in an exact way that you lose some individuality and freedom. No matter how incredible it is, watching the same thing over and over and over again can become boring. That is why I can relate more towards things like break dancing, freestyle bodyweight etc. where rhythm, soul, creativity etc. are involved. When you put soul into it, it's a whole other story. and you know this got soul! I have a strong passion for freestyle bodyweight.

FUN - #2 reason is fun. Too much fun! The moves, the joking around, the atmosphere, the feeling, the people. The way I see it is if it's no longer fun, it's not worth doing anymore. I dun know, fun might be up there with reason #1 actually. maybe a tie.

BAR-BARIANS! - #3 reason is for my family, Bar-barians (my blood family of course as well). My goal in mind always is to make Jude and Zeph proud. actually all 3 are a tie. lol these are not in order. just wrote em in this order.

Also, bar work looks beastly to anyone who doesn't do it.

2. Fitness to the max - the new standards are not just weight numbers on a metal disc but they are actually cool moves that show strength

3. Fun, just fun to hit the bar everyday and try something new

1. For the thrill. : D it may not seem like it since it's only about bar work, but I do gymnastics and bar work just roids up my performance like u wouldn't believe :d

2. The image of perfection. Nobody wants to look in the mirror and see something ugly staring back. Bars are a great way to get that lean, tough look.

3. Is a tie. Between the challenge, and the faces :p the challenge is to push myself to my limits, and find peace in that moment of utter pain when you reach your max rep. Nothin beats the look on peoples faces. Especially the girls...mm just love it when they stare Wink

Due to the recent BP oil spill and other factors contributing to the closing in fast zombie apocalypse, my reasons have changed:

1. To easily wield a chainsaw one handed in case I'm stuck in a corner or I have to face more than 3 zombies at once.
2. To be able to climb quicker than everyone else. Everyone knows zombies can't climb.
3. Beastly strength. Tearing zombies structurally superfluous new assholes is all in a days work. Can't do that if you can't at least do a front lever pull up.
