    Just wondering because it's such a cult group. I'm pretty much married to the pull-up bar. Love doing muscle-ups, typewriters, archers and currently training to do front levers. Anybody else out there that's into these types of workouts?

    Certainly wouldnt consider myself a calisthenics athlete as of yet but i do aim to be one day yes

    I am just getting started in it and i a enjoying it so far, very challenging

    What can you do on a pull up bar in terms of numbers ? Can you do a one arm pull up ?

    I think if you were to start a training log in our subforum, a lot of people would be interested in reading that.

    I've been training those exercises for quite a few years.

    I currently use calesthenics and olympic lifts exclusively as my upper body workout.
