It’s quite amusing when I reflect on how my journey into outdoor bodyweight training began and how it eventually led to inspiring others. The primary reason was purely practical: I couldn’t afford a gym membership. This led me to embrace running and basic calisthenics, which, for reasons I didn’t fully understand at the time, perfectly aligned with my natural and simplistic approach to life. Right from the start, I sensed a natural proficiency developing. Initially, I was lean and athletic, yet lacking in muscular endurance and strength, and I recognized the significant work that lay ahead.
As a calisthenics beginner, my goals were ambitious: mastering the muscle-up, performing one-handed pull-ups, effortlessly walking in a handstand, and building muscle. Over time, not only did I achieve these milestones, but I also developed lean muscle mass. At a certain point, I realized the value of sharing my accumulated training methods, routines, and insights. Hence, I compiled them into an eBook for beginners. Beginner Calisthenics is the kind of program I wished for in my early days, one that I never encountered.
