My work with top natural health professionals and experience as a fitness instructor teach me health tips that I am proud to share.

You can develop a calisthenics workout plan that uses your own body as resistance to build strength and endurance.

Exercise Anywhere


Best Calisthenics Workout

Calisthenics consists of a variety of exercises you can perform without any weights or other equipment. They are simple exercises that use your own body as resistance to build strength and endurance.

Doing calisthenics saves money because you don’t need a club membership or a full weight room to get your body in shape. The exercises take 10 to 30 minutes a day, and you can do them any time of the day.

For the best calisthenics workout routine, schedule a minimum of three days of calisthenics and two days of cardio per week. Calisthenics also compliments a simple walking or jogging routine. The 10 minute or 15 minute exercises are hard to do at first but keep your focus on what you are doing and practice.

Calisthenics Beginner Workout

Don't underestimate the intensity and physical demands of performing calisthenics. Even the most skilled athletes know calisthenics workout plan is tough to perform at first.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned athlete, ease into the exercises even though they look easy. Perform the calisthenics at an intensity level that’s moderate for your body.

Anytime you feel shortness of breath, dizziness, discomfort or pain, stop the calisthenics routine and reassess your ability to perform at that level. You can start with 10 minute exercises or 15 minute exercises at any level and increase your overall stamina, strength, and poise for the rest of your life.

Calisthenics Training

You can start calisthenics workout routine at any level and increase your overall stamina, strength, and poise for the rest of your life.

Breathe Normally and Hydrate Often

You need to breathe naturally as you do each exercise. Though, you don’t want to concentrate on breathing. Let the body naturally breathe in air. This helps the performance of each exercise. Exhale when the body feels the need to let air out without holding your breath. Holding your breath will raise your blood pressure, causing unnecessary health problems. Pace our movement with the body’s breathing, so you’re not going too fast becoming short of breath or too slow where the lungs never expand and increase oxygen intake. Drinking water while you exercise is very important, too. Don’t drink water when you’re thirsty. Drink it before you’re thirsty. Purified water is the best.

Calisthenics Program

Getting bored with your exercise routine? Put a zing in your workout by adding calisthenics. It not only adds interest, it also strengthens and builds endurance in the body.

The benefits of modifying your workouts can’t be stressed enough. Personal trainers worldwide speak enthusiastically about overcoming workout plateaus with calisthenics.

Choose from the five standard exercises to add some variation: sit-ups, push-ups, dips, leg raises and jumping jacks. Rotate them by the week or month and you will notice the change in your body.

Gyms are great for an occasional workout, but make calisthenics your foundation and achieve your fitness goals.

Calisthenics Workouts

Develop a new workout routine with a trainer or by yourself and place several calisthenic exercises in the routine. It is a sure fire way to make sure you get the best workout each time you hit the gym.

You can even take some workout classes and ask the teacher to indicate any calisthenic exercises during the class. Professional trainers don't always think in terms of what type of exercise they are having you do - they are just telling you to do it.

So, it's important to ask, so you are aware of what your body is doing. That way, you will learn some new calisthenics to add to your routine.

Calisthenics Home Workout

Calisthenics training is the best way to achieve overall strength conditioning of the body. Carrying out these exercises can help specific areas of your body that have problems.

Allowing you to concentrate on helping your body get better naturally. For example, dips are great for toning flabby triceps, push-ups are for the chest, and sit-ups tighten the soft belly.

Gyms are great for an occasional workout. Calisthenics home workout is easier and make calisthenics your foundation and achieve your fitness goals.
