Not sure how to get started with calisthenics?
Here you’ll find everything you need to know to grow strong using nothing but your own body!
How To Start Training With Calisthenics
The Right Way
When you start out, the most important thing you should do is develop a strong foundation.
If you develop a strong foundation successfully, then you’ll progress to advanced movements faster and more safely.
If you don’t put the necessary time into building your foundation, then your progress will most likely stall and, even worse, you risk getting injured.
With that said…
What’s a strong calisthenics foundation?
It’s the mastery of the basic bodyweight movements. In short:
- 30 consecutive push-ups
- 5 consecutive pull-ups
- 50 consecutive squats
- 1 min hollow body hold
- 1 min reverse hollow body hold
- 2 min dead-hang hold
The resources below will help you master the basics in 3-4 months (depending on your current training level).
