Frank Medrano’s transformation is an inspiration for many people around the globe. As you can see from the pictures, he made a very impressive transformation, going from a very skinny frame in which many would even make an argument that he has sub-par genetics, to a physique that most men would only dream of.
To make this even more impressive he did this all while following a vegan diet, while also only doing calisthenic exercises. Showing not only that you can gain muscle by doing calisthenics, but also with a strictly vegan diet too.
Frank’s transformation shows that there is no excuse. Don’t think you can ever achieve your dream body because you think you have bad genetics? Well, Frank did it. Don’t have the time or money to go to a gym? That’s fine you can get results without either of those.
Frank shows us that the body you want is in your grasp.

Kali Muscle quickly banishes the stigma and myths surrounding calisthenics, showing that not only can you build muscle following strictly calisthenic routines, but you can also build a truly impressive amount of size.
He began his calisthenics body transformation when he was in prison. He had a desire to put on muscle and get stronger to make his time in prison worthwhile but he faced what he thought was a huge obstacle at first. There were no weights. Prisons no longer allow weightlifting equipment in the yard because there were multiple occasions where they were used as weapons. However, Kali Muscle did not let this stop him. He began making creative calisthenics exercise routines with whatever he could get. This included his bodyweight, everyday items such as towels, and even other prisoners.
Kali Muscle is now a very well–known and popular personality with millions of views on YouTube and has made many videos with other popular influencers.
Kali Muscle’s calisthenics body transformation has inspired millions of people around the globe, being living proof that calisthenics is a viable option to build a hell of a lot of muscle.
