Anyone that knows me knows that I love to throw a barbell around. Lifting weight is my sanctuary. There is something to be said about being able to move your bodyweight though.
The strength required to perform high skill bodyweight exercises is not to be underestimated. Not only that, you can actually get pretty jacked without any additional resistance.
One of the biggest ironies in the fitness industry is that there seems to be these ongoing futile attempts to create “revolutionary” exercises but bodyweight training still remains to this day to be one of the most effective training methods and it requires virtually no equipment whatsoever! Go figure.
