Calesthenics Change Body Composition ?

Calesthenics Change Body Composition ?

So, question for those who have been doing calisthenics for awhile and have seen a change in body composition – how did you do it? I’m just skeptical. Like I’ll do the moves and focus on my form but by the time I rest between sets my heartrate is already back down, making it hard to burn calories during my workout. When I used to run and lift pre-knee injury, I would burn a good 300+ calories during a good workout, but this week as I’ve started calisthenics I’m only burning less than 200. I really want to build muscle and lose body fat – is calisthenics going to help with those goals? I’m not even breaking a sweat either – am i just not working hard enough?

REALIZE

I have to say I have not seen a lot of change in body composition but the other day I went to Costco and grabbed a big bag of dog food and got it off the stack, squatted down to put it on the bottom of the cart and got back up without giving it a second thought. I didn’t even realize what I was doing until I was back on my way and thought WOAH whatdidIjustdothere!!! I’ll take it 🙂

LOSE BODY FAT BUILD MUSCLE

Calisthenics will help you to lose body-fat and build muscle if you do it in the right way. I’ve been practicing calisthenics and having a diet to lose weight and body-fat and I’m getting results. It is important to mention that in order to lose weight or body-fat the main thing you will need to focus is being in a caloric déficit, excersice is an extra that will help you in the journey to keep muscle and increase strenght. And to increase muse you will need to eat more calories than you normally do, with a good amount of protein and do excersice with progressive overload ;).

ABILITY

I think others have answered your specific questions, but I wanted to provide another consideration for the value of calisthenics which is essentially preserving the ability to move as freely and effectively as possible, completing day-to-day tasks (as was mentioned below) with less effort and strain. I turned 50 this year. 50 always seemed old to me when I was in my 20s and 30s but now that I’m there my mind and spirit think that 50 isn’t old at all. The problem is my knees and my back and ugh. I relied heavily on my youth to keep me healthy and vibrant. I should have done the work a lot sooner to preserve it! Now I take the stairs because if I don’t, I’ll likely lose the ability to. I’ll continue to grow my routine with Hampton’s materials because I may be gathering years, but I’m not ready to get old. Do this not because of how many calories you burn – do it because of how much life you can gain long term.

MAINTAIN CALORIE DEFICIT

To lose fat you basically need to be in a small maintainable calorie deficit. As fa’s as I understand it calesthentics stuff you needed to build a solid base and prep body by mastering the basics before moving on to the other stuff. Think if it perhaps as building a solid foundation. From what I’ve seen looking at the hybrid 2 routine it’s based off convict conditioning by Paul Wade. Think progressive overload. Also calorie measures from wearable devices completely unreliable. If the goal is weight loss that’s your diet that will sort that out I. E calorie deficit. Generally things you do outside of exercise will contribute more to calorie burning I. E getting the steps in etc.

NOT CHANGE

I have to say I have not seen a lot of change in body composition but the other day I went to Costco and grabbed a big bag of dog food and got it off the stack, squatted down to put it on the bottom of the cart and got back up without giving it a second thought. I didn’t even realize what I was doing until I was back on my way and thought WOAH whatdidIjustdothere!!! I’ll take it 🙂

TRAINING HARDER

I think it is important to think of training as what gets you stronger and builds the muscles to give your body the shape you desire. Your nutrition plan is what will determine fat loss. I do circuit training with all calisthenics exercises and have had amazing results. It definitely works, especially when you follow a solid routine that you enjoy.
