    i never saw anyone doing 100 pushups in a row with full rom and without a break at the top.
    150 sit-ups is a pointless high quantity (for any exercise) and 10 pistols is not hard to do if you got the technique down.

    i don't know why most calisthenics standards always end up in a bunch of ridiculous senseless numbers in comparison to the barbell lifts.

    it would be better to request calisthenics endurance with the addition of a time limit like e.g. the barbarian requirements or the "100 pushups/50 pull ups under 5 minutes" thing.

    The 1.5BW Bench is the only one I've hit. I probably could've ran some of those distances within the time limit while i was an active boxer since I ran quite a lot.
    Why no oly lift standards though?

    200 lbs. Nah I'm not that strong. I'm a smidge under most of the barbell ones, around 2.2BW DL, 1.7BW squat, 0.8BW OHP and 1.25BW bench. I mostly just use the lifts because that's what the metrics are, and obviously they are good for whole body strength. I'm sure if I dedicated myself to them seriously for a little while I could hit the OHP, Squat and DL numbers (bench no way), but I don't really care that much. Lots of other stuff i'd rather be doing, including running, martial arts and BW training. I did join the squat and OHP competition though so I guess at some point I'll have to get serious about it.

    To be fair, I don't know how to oly lift so I don't know how much I can snatch or clean. I probably can't even do my own bodyweight.
