Are body weight exercises enough?
While listening to the Paleo Solution Podcast by Robb Wolf, I found that Robb seems to strongly advocate weightlifting exercises like the snatch, clean and jerk, dead lift, etc. I am a pretty lean guy 5'8" and 135-140 lbs around 8-11% body fat. I want to be ripped but I don't know if weightlifting will help me.
I've heard rumors that gains from bodyweight exercises tend to level off extremely quickly.
I tend to do mostly bodyweight exercises like Bulgarian Squats, Burpees, Spiderman pushups etc.... But after a few weeks of doing these, they've become fairly easy and the only thing I can do for my workout is increase the volume.
I also think that since these exercises are so repetitive, they will at some point stop giving me results.... Any help? Are bodyweight exercises actually great and I'm just worrying for no reason?
