what are the advantages and disadvantages training by calisthenics?
Major disadvantage is progressive overload.
After a certain level it becomes almost entirely muscle endurance unless of course you find more difficult ways to do the exercise. Instead of doing 50-100 reps per set of pushups, you could raise your feet higher, do them one arm or do them single arm single leg. The last exercise I've been incorporating into my workouts alot.
