Calisthenics For Beginners: The Ultimate Guide

You’ve discovered calisthenics.

Exciting, isn’t it?

Training with just your body weight. Actually it’s a combination of several different elements: Skill, strength and flexibility.

And if you’re looking for a healthier, stronger and more muscular body then calisthenics is a MUST.


For a long time in history, people did nothing other than calisthenics. Those days are long gone. 

Make no mistake: Working out with weights definitely works. But in a lot of cases it’s not nearly as effective as training with your own body weight.

Becoming a master at calisthenics requires a serious investment (motivation, time and sweat).



Because high level skills require a lot of time to learn. And going from no activity to doing handstands or chin ups isn’t easy. 

But when you understand how calisthenics works, the rewards are HUGE: the world becomes your gym and your body becomes stronger and more capable than you could have ever imagined.

1 Essential Tip For Unmotivated Beginners

It hurts me to say this -I know you are working your ass off- but you are failing miserably at on thing.

A few months ago, you could nearly lift the phone you are reading this on and now you are doing push ups, pull ups, dips, squats and perhaps even muscle ups.

Still, you feel like you are a weakling compared to all those athletes on youtube, instagram and facebook.


You think about quitting, giving it all up.

Your motivation is leaking away, like water in a bucket filled with holes and the thought of that happening disappoints me, it really does.

After all, you’re leaps closer to where you where when you started working out.


And you work just as hard as those ‘people you look up to’, sometimes even harder because you know you have some huge patches of ground to cover.

Believe it or not, but they look up to you too.

At least I do, not because I’m trying to kiss your ass. No, the real reason why I look up to you is because you are willing to go out there.

You just need to find a way to fill up those holes that are eating away at your motivation and discover how much you have really grown.
