Traveling to get some good time off, we all love that!
However most people also fall off their good habits when doing so. Some lose their healthy rhythm, trading it for more drinks, less exercises and less sleep.
We’ve all been there.
So here is a great, 3 day full body calisthenics workout program.
You can do anywhere, with minimal or no equipment at all.
Day 1: Push-Legs-Core
Day 2: Pull-Legs-Core
I remember when I first had a massive win with calisthenics.
Unlocking the all mighty Muscle Up!
It was incredible!
Before I was able to do a muscle up, I was a completely different person.
I thought I would never be able to achieve that from where I was standing. Pull ups were already challenging so the muscle up seemed to be from another dimension.
I felt fatalistic and I was ok with the idea that this move wasn’t for me, that I wasn’t a gymnast anyway and that I’d stay stuck under the bar forever.
How the muscle up happened…is actually the most important part of the story.
This quest for something that seemed unattainable has changed my life.
I wouldn’t mind rewinding these moments a few more times...
I would go train every single day for years, and haven’t stopped ever since.
I was getting great advices from the older, more experienced guys that were training at the park, and encouragement from the whole...
Static holds are some of the hardest things to achieve in calisthenics.
They are very different from the classic repetitions we do with regular movements such as pull ups or push ups. The obvious difference is that one is an isometric exercise while repetitions are dynamic exercises.
But there is much more to it.
There are 2 main reasons why static holds are more demanding than traditional movements:
They challenge your nervous system.
Your body needs to learn how to cope with a continuous, strenuous effort. Indeed, when doing reps, your body is used to taking partial "breaks" between your repetitions, even if it does not feel like rest! So the key is to calm your nerves down and learn to breathe optimally through the static hold.
It addresses your weak links.
Static holds will automatically highlight any weakness in your body very quickly. When doing reps there is always a slight compensation or swing in one way or another that will cover for your weaknesses. But isometric...
Do you find that you reach certain limitations in your movements like push ups or pull ups?
Are you able to perform good form, full-range-of-motion movements?
It pains me to see so many people with bad form. That’s what happened with David.
Like many, he spent months and months training, yet still not being able to get good form on foundation movements like push ups and pull ups. But things are going to be different for you!
Here’s why people do not have good form: they don’t always know about bio-mechanics, and how to use their muscles and joints in the best way.
Since everyone “does” push ups, people think they all know how to do it. Simple, right?
Instead of assuming, they need to understand the movements they are doing and pay attention to details.
When you figure that out, you can quickly get to the root of that limitation and eradicate it.
Here are 3 reasons why the online calisthenics course is the best way...
I used to be quite disorganized when trying to figure out how to get strong and lean on a daily basis. Not anymore!
Today, I follow an embarrassingly simple 3-step process to workout and stay lean all year round. I spent months trying to tweak this process because I knew that I will be repeating it hundreds of times to come.
Here’s the 3-step process that I make sure to follow now!
A good routine every coach should have is a solid routine to follow when it comes to building muscle, staying lean and improving skills all year round.
Over time, having a streamlined process to do that will benefit you tremendously:
Let’s break things down.
Here are 3 things you should do to get year long results:
#1: EAT RIGHT IN THE...
I wanted to write this article to share something I've learned with you.
In my early days, after a few years of training, I was disappointed with my results.
It happens to the best of us. I did make clear progress but was training with guys much stronger than me. I also thought I’d reach their level within a few years of hard training.
Then, I had the opportunity to have a conversation with a ripped, retired professional rugby player in his mid 40’s. He was THE guy everyone was looking up too where I used to train - and I went for it.
I went for the long term, small steps, consistent approach than this guys had been using for decades.
This chat has been a life changing experience. I realized results take time. This guys had been training for 30+ years! And I was thinking that 3 years of intense training was going to get me where he was. LOL.
After that, I felt so refreshed and gained so much clarity on how to get lean, strong and healthy.
Let us not beat around the bush. As some of you may know, I am a Calisthenics - Bodyweight movement expert. I help people like you with getting strong, lean and see results for years, not just a few months.
So I will be sharing with you 3 reasons why you should do calisthenics and embrace holistic health.
More importantly, I will be helping you to make a solid decision of whether you want to get serious results with calisthenics or just keep spending your time browsing the internet for free videos and endless 4 week bullsh*t programs.
The thing is, my calisthenics course is NOT suitable for everyone. That’s the truth.
I know of so many people who were only slightly interested in calisthenics and wanted quick "tips" to achieve goals that take years of learning and practice... but they never got anywhere because they did not dig deep enough to truly understand why calisthenics and bodyweight movement are so important.

If you've ever tried to do a handstand, you know it's not as easy as it looks!
This goes especially when trying to avoid the infamous "Banana" handstand, where the back is arching to compensate for lack of technique.
You will often see people trying to stay on their hands while balancing their legs and feet up, as they try to find balance to stay still.
In today's video I'm going to show you 3 moves to fix your handstand if that's your case.
This also works if you are a beginner starting to learn proper handstand form.
