I checked Weightlifting in Latin America by Expat Chronicles as a guide and I’ve been avoiding Gyms like Bodytech or Stella del Mar (only old women go there). I’ve seen “People Training” in downtown yet I never been there because I don’t spend much time there besides some daygame, some vueltas or sometimes El Chorro.
That’s why for eight months I’ve been on Bodyweight calisthenincs excercises (with a doorway bar I bought on Mercadolibre). Inspired by Convict Conditioning, 30 Days of Discipline and Barstarzz vids and Calisthenics Works blog, but doing mainly Wide and Close Push Ups (100 reps in as less sets I can, when I started I couldn’t reach 20 now I do 35-50 straight), Pull-ups (I couldn’t even do one when I started, now I can do 20-30 straight), Hanging Leg raises (50 reps or until I can’t do more) and going to Ciclovía friday-sunday (I’ve diminished my intensity to avoid losing muscle) for legs (calves especially). In these few months of intermittent discipline, I’ve gone from 120 pounds to 135 pounds (Ectomorph) at 1,75 m and I’ve lost a lot of fat so I can now see some abs (was somewhat skinny-fat – SHAME).
Regarding public parks, some of them have pull-up bars, but they’re designed for children so they usually are very low (ideal for Hanging L-sits and practicing muscle ups). The mayority have monkey bars that are good for chinups and dips (but very elevated from the ground). But the dip bars are scarce and when I found one near home, It was very wide that the only use was push-ups on them.
