So do you only train bodyweight skills?
No, I also lift things.

As I’ve said before, I feel that bodyweight training and weight training complement each other very well. I’ve gotten the impression that some people feel they have to choose between one or the other. Or that one is superior to the other. I hate to see a divide in two types of training that will both ultimately improve your body.
Take a look at classic strongman Eugene Sandow. Here was a guy who looked extremely powerful, could hoist a ton of weight, yet was agile enough to be able to backflip.
Can you develop a powerful body with only bodyweight exercises? Sure – Olympic gymnasts are the perfect and most oft-used example. All I’m saying is that you shouldn’t be afraid to combine training. I like deadlifting and I like handstands; both are fun and make me stronger.
