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).

 

Why?

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.

The Biological Hack For Optimal Training Time

Training is a battle.

A war against your own physical and mental limitations.

Your biggest enemy? The amount of excuses you can come up with.

This battle isn’t one for the weak. The naïve. The impatient.

 

You’ll need to embrace the pain of being a beginner again. New challenges. New routines. New soreness.

But none of those things matter if you don’t train at all.

So before you go further down the rabbit hole of calisthenics training, you better make sure you know what the best time is to do so.

 

The key?

Knowing how your body responds to the time at which you train, is something you must learn.

The battlefield is right in front of you and you have the opportunity to write the heroes’ story.

So when you enter the calisthenics arena, arm yourself with this knowledge.

And keep fighting the good fight.

Everybody is counting on you. (more…)
