Found a really interesting match. There are some episodes that I need to watch too. But, does any of you do both cal and powerlift?
I don't do both but I feel like for real life adaptation, calisthenics are much more effective. But once again, each type of exercise has its strengths and weaknesses.
What's your take @alywoah?
It really just depends on your goals. Both involve a crazy amount of strength in very different ways. It's like comparing a sprinter with a long distance runner -- they both are tough in very different ways. A powerlifter might find it easy to deadlift 600lbs, but might find it difficult to do 10 pullups. Vice versa.
I've only done powerlifting, but I've been curious about calisthenics. I think maybe even applying both can add a great deal of insane strength.
