    calisthenics/pushups/pullups


    my question is would it be good to have one day a week in my routine to add a day with just calisthenics?would it make me stronger/would it help me get cut? (============

    I use to do this. I'd just add one day to do

    Push ups 100-200
    Pull ups 50
    dips from a chair 50
    chin ups 50
    sissy squats AMRAP
    glute raises AMRAP
    calf raises 100 diminishing set
    hanging leg raises AMRAP
    planks and side planks


    I enjoyed doing it , and I could just do it at home.

    But I felt like I added too many days in a week and changed it up.

    It depends if your goal is to get better at them?

    Those wouldn't necessarily help you lose fat over traditional weight training.
