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. Hey,

    I really want to increase reps in pull ups.
    I spent a lot time doing these routines for beginners which include line 4 sets of 8 and I can honestly say, it doesn’t do shit for me.
    Im stuck at 10-15 depending on mood. How often do I need to train to increase this? How much is enough?
