Bodyweight training or weight training? A lot of people get confused in their choice. They try to find the ultimate tool for gaining strength, building muscle, getting ripped. Some of them became fans of one tool, some prefer the other. It's ok. But people are funny creatures. Some of them just need to make their point of view as the only possible. And there's no better place to make it than the internet. That is why we have epic battles of calisthenics disciples and weight training advocates. Life-or-death battles. And get even more confused.
As an open-minded reasonable and smart tranee you should ask yourself: "Ok, so which one is better?" The answer may surprise you. Read on.
There's so many debates on what implement is the ultimate training tool ever. Barbells? Dumbbells? Sandbags? Kettlebells? Bodyweight? You name it. People tend to oppose them to each other. One say: "Barbells are the best because you can always make micro adjustments in weight". Others say: "Sandbags or kegs are the best because they rock stabilizers big time what barbell cannot offer". Third say: "Kettlebells are the best because they fun and versatile and can offer unique exercises". Fourth say: "Forget about weights! Old school bodyweight strength training is the king because you learn to master your own bodyweight".
So who's right and where's the truth?
