How To Train Calisthenics With Bad Weather!


How To Train Calisthenics With Bad Weather!

Bad weather is the only real enemy of outdoors calisthenics training, along with extreme heat.

But there are ways around that!

1/ The first option is to stay indoors.

For those who like to go to the gym, that’s an option, then you can train exactly the same way you would at the park.

I personally don’t like the gym environment and prefer home workouts when I have to stay in.

If you live in a place where bad weather or extreme heat is the norm, then investing in a few items such as a doorway pull up bar, dips bar and a few resistance bands goes a very long way!

But you don’t even need any equipment to get a good workout at home.

Here is what I did last Saturday at home, for my push day:

  • 300 push ups: 50-30-20-30-70-30-20-20
  • 100 ab raises: from the floor, keep your feet on the ground with bent legs and lift your torso off the ground, to bring it to your knees).
  • Time: 30-45 min.

2/ There is also a second option: face the climate and adapt to it.

If it’s too hot, this could mean train earlier in the morning or later at night.

If it’s raining, then just go train, under the rain.

When you do that, your body burns more calories than in a controlled, comfortable environment, hence making your workout more efficient in terms of energy expenditure.

You also get an amazing feeling from being outdoors with endorphins rushing in after the workout.

Monday was a very rainy day in L.A but it did not stop me and my client Lukas from getting a really good session.

Here is the detail of our full calisthenics training session:

  • Pull ups/push ups x 5/5 x 5
  • Bench dips x 20 x 3
  • Lunges/squats x 20/20 x 3
  • Walking wide lunges x 25
  • Steps up negatives x 5 per leg x 3
  • Tibialis raises x 25 x 3
  • Standing Glute leg raises x 10 per leg x 3
  • Hanging knee raises x max x 3 sets

So next time the weather is not ideal, use these tips to make the best of that day anyway.
