    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    If you like bodweight exercises.

    I am proud to say that my instructors and his friends are finally doing something for the community.
    They are putting together a web page with many many body weight exercises.
    They organized them into easy and hard.
    Twenty different levels.
    I don't know what all the exercises will be, but many look like the one we do while training.

    If you want to see it.
    Here you go.

    I wish this **** was around when I started training. Good stuff man, but they need to be a tad more physiologically descriptive. Get a personal trainer to tell you guys exactly what muscles your training per exercise.

    This brings up a BW concern of mine I've always had. Can you create full body power with just BW? In a Power Clean from the Floor, your whole body is pulling an all out effort to get that weight off the floor. Same with High Pulls from Floor, Deadlifts, and other such exercises using weights. Most BW plyometric-power type excercises focus on one compound group at a time, or a series. Star Jump Burpees or Plyo Pushups you know? Is it possible?

    In a word, no. Think about it: in a power clean you're lifting significantly more weight than just that of your body, using your body's biggest muscles. There's no way to replicate that with body weight exercises. Plyometrics can be useful, but they aren't a substitute for the olympic and pre-olympic lifts.

    Then again, you don't have the injuries that go with lifting heavy weights.

    funnily enough, in the course of the sportscience degree im doing- we sometimes lift weights. another crazy fact. hell, we even did a whole unit on our individual fitness levels which included 1 rep max of a couple of exercises.

    i know what you are getting at though. most people who walk into a gym have nfi what they are doing. so you get guys who walk in cold off the street, put a ton of weight on the benchpress, spend 30 seconds busting their ringpiece to lift it twice, and then wonder how they pulled a muscle. im not taking stupid people into account here but if i were then you would probably be right, there are more injuries done by people who lift weights than by people who do bodyweights. these kind of boneheads usually arent interested in bodyweight exercises.

    Fixed.

    Only stupid people hurt themselves when lifting. I hurt my knee becuase I had no fucking clue what I was doing. Now I am smarter and will only get injured in a freak accident.

    Moreover, the rewards are worth the risks. There is a limit as to how strong you can get with BW exercises. Weights shatter that limit.

    Hannibal, your the dumbest **** in the universe, dumber than me even. Almost all athletes lift weights, even marathon runners. You know how they injure themselves? Fucking up in their sports.
