hey bar-brothers and sisters?!
im kieran, im 18years old and currently weighing around 190 - 196.
i live in fareham, UK

i lifted weights for about 1 - 2 years but nothing serious just steady gains and enough to keep me interested...thats when my journey into fitness began. my starting bodyweight was 140 - 150 at 15years old and by the end of my weight training i had put on around 30pounds probably around 20pounds of muscle and 10pounds of fat back then at the age of 17 i could do maybe 30 pushups in 2 minutes! weight training had made me so slow and i had no endruance, to be honest i didnt really get any benefits from lifting weights.

i have been training calisthenics for about 1 year. it started when i saw videos on youtube of Hannibal, Beast, Zef and people like that performing mad tricks and skills on the pullup bars and dip bars...i think there was a video where Beast performed an elevator pullup, pulling up and then leaving the bar and grabbing a bar higher up...my jaw hit the floor! and i knew from that moment that calishtenics was exactly what i wanted to be doing!

when i started calisthenics my numbers where as follows:
Weight - 180
Pushups - 30 (max)
Pullups - 5 (max)
Dips - 2 (max)
Hspu - 0
muscleups - 0

After 1 year calisthenics:

weight - 196
pushups - 103(max)
pullups - 25(max)
Dips - 35(max)
hspu - 20(max)
muscleups - 10(max)

some more advanced movements that i could not perform before that i can after 1 year are:

L-sit for 60second+
front levers
one arm, one hand pullup
pistol squat
hanging leg raises toes to bar with 2 hands and 1 hand
bent arm planche

i want to complete BBR's very soon and wear the bar-barians tshirt to represent in the south of england.
i am one of the only people that knows of the calisthenics community and hopefully through bar-barians i can educate and inspire people to walk down the path i have and change there lives for the better. also to take my training to new levels to show people what they can also acheive!


sorry this is quite long lol if anyone actually reads all then atleast you know me better now lol.
i will be posting regularly and taking part in the forum challenges.
send me friend request? i want to connect with more of the bar-barians community!
take care everyone.
