Hi, i am a 183 lb 6 ft 2 basketball player. i play a shooting gaurd/point gaurd. i am pretty fast compared to most gaurds my size and agile and strong also… the added bulk and strength over the summer has helped me big time… ive lifted for about…6 months now… triaing for mass and msucle and strength… and ive seen results… now i want to get more in basketball game type shape… i feel maybe doing calisthetics may be useful to me as a basketball player, using my bodyweight for things such as squats pushups and situps.
do any of you reccomend doing this? what types of gains will i get? speed? strength? agility? quickness? as far as physically… will i get more cut… and lean? please tell me if yuou know what your talking about… what the positives and negatives would be to this?also… ive been getting bad lower back pain and i feel maybe its from always lifting hard for mass alot over the past 2-3 months… and maybe im paying the price now, so maybe something like this could be beneficial? please type all your thoughts and advice. thanks again, this will really help me. thanks again. I just turned 18 by the way… if this means anything.
Also maybe give me an example of a good calisthetic program and what types of excercises to do. thanks again.
