Who Are The Bar Brothers?

Bar Brothers is a worldwide fitness movement that focuses on calisthenics training and has members from different countries all over the world. The founders of Bar Brothers are Lazar Novovic and Dusan Djolevic. The two are known for their impressive ability to perform advanced calisthenics exercises. And they are also known for their well ripped physiques that they claimed to achieve through calisthenics training only. Lazar and Dusan are the creators of the popular calisthenics training program, Bar Brothers – The System. This program was designed to help anyone lose fat and build muscle with bodyweight training while getting motivation to reach all your goals in life.


Lazar Novovic said he got introduced to calisthenics in Serbia by Ivan Markioli. After that, he left Serbia to move to the United States. However, he did not train because he wasn’t that motivated. When he met Dusan Djolevic, he introduced him to calisthenics. And it wasn’t too long after that they started team Bar Brothers, and it grew as a worldwide movement really fast.

Bar Brothers Workout

According to the Bar Brothers founders, their training is based on constantly making their workouts more challenging, which is the key to getting results from bodyweight training.

They said in an interview: “Our type of training pushes your body to new levels. Therefore your mind is challenged and forces you to focus in on your regiment even more. The level of focus needed to perform some of these moves is ridiculous. It takes weeks of training and dedication. This builds the blocks to your fundamentals that can be carried on to any aspects in your life”.

Bar Brothers Workout

“We train 3-5 days depending on how much energy we have. When we workout we push ourselves until failure each time. That way we are always challenging ourselves and becoming stronger week by week. Some days we rep out to the max and some days we practice fun freestyle moves”.

Bar Brothers Movement

The movement is a worldwide network of calisthenics groups representing Bar Brothers in different countries. The Bar brothers movement comprises of male and female calisthenics enthusiasts pushing each other day by day to be the best that they can be. “It has grown worldwide and it is growing exponentially which we are very proud of”. Said Lazar Novovic.

Bar Brothers Movement

A large number of countries in the world have Bar Brothers representative groups, and that number is countinuing to grow. Countries include US, UK, Canada, Australia, Spain, France, India, Japan, China etc. In some of these countries you’ll find also different Bar Brothers groups representing specific states, cities and towns. So the movement is very big.

Bar Brothers Requirements

Anyone who is interested in starting a group to represent Bar Brothers in their country must show their dedication by completing the the Bar Brother’s Requirements. According to the founders “It is a test we designed where it’s a constant flow of the fundamental calisthenics exercises that need to be performed in a certain time range. But for the most part they were made to show that the person is at a certain advanced level of training when they complete them”.

John Barban’s Body Transformation

John Barban Body Transformation

John started working out in high school as a skinny kid who wanted to build muscle just like the other guys. However, because he never really understood at the time what it meant to truly be in great shape, John got caught up with the idea of “bulking” up.

After spending decades using the “bulk up” approach to getting in shape and not getting the body he wanted, John decided to start at square one and forget everything he had ever read about getting ripped and muscular. He shifted his focus to human anatomy, genetics, psychology and attraction research in order to discover what male build has been proven to create the most admiration, respect and physical attraction.

With his new mindset and hours of research John discovered what is now known as The Adonis Golden Ratio (AGR). The Adonis Golden Ratio represents the perfect proportion many studies prove women are genetically and evolutionary hard wired to seek out and be attracted to and men respect because it displays the highest degree of genetic fitness.

And from there, John developed the revolutionary one of kind Adonis Golden Ratio 12 week System. It’s the program John used to complete his transformation you see here.
