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!

Couldn't have said it better myself. :-)

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.

HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAH
that one wins man xD

keeps me calm...rekindles flame between mind, body and soul... I actually look forward to my workout days... It also feels awesome being in better shape than the avg guy... now I notice myself sizing people up more... not saying that Im violent cause I still try and avoid fights but sizing them up that could stem from confidence/ will to survive/achieve... also when chicks double take that is rad!!!

1) It's a fun, new and more creative way of working out.

2) It's free and you can do it anywhere.

3) It really benefits my Muay Thai training because I need to have good control over my bodyweight, and weightlifting will only trash my muscles if I do that + Muay Thai.

1. To be a better athlete period. I see these guys at the gym as big as a house but can't do 1 pull up. I'm sorry but that's not an athlete in my book. I want to be able to walk into basically any sport and have a fighting chance and this gives me that.

2. Working out in the outdoors is just so much more fun. I can see why Arnold liked working out on the beach in LA so many times.

3. It's different from every workout in every magazine focusing on weights. Not to mention, it's free of charge.

3b. Girls (or guys if you roll that way, PC). Ok, anybody that doesn't like a little attention is fibbing. Even if you have a girl, it still rocks to see them excited by your physique and the dedication they know it took you to get there.
