Principles of Training – Be Patient

Be patient. Calisthenics training involves learning progressions, and many of these progressions take years to learn. This is because it takes years for your body to become prepared to handle the load placed on your joints in many of these movements. Your muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons need lots of time to become strong and flexible enough to handle muscle ups, planches, handstands, etc. There is no shortcut. The fastest way to achieving your goals is smart and consistent training. So be patient. According to Coach Sommers, connective tissue take 10x longer to regenerate than muscle tissue. When you start conditioning your joints, expect it to take 6 months to a year before you start to see any big improvements.
