The goal is to make the content more accessible and easy to follow.
Two new programs will also be added in 2022: Calisthenics Level 4 and the Special Levers and Human Flag Program.
2. The workout video library has also be re-organized in a day-by-day format, for each program, so you can follow along each workout day with the workout pdf.

The fitness world is full of tricks and programs to help you lose weight.
They all promise amazing results in 4 weeks and lots of people fall into those traps.
Meanwhile, there are very simple things you can all do in order to get leaner and stronger all year round.
This starts by avoiding these 3 mistakes:
1/ Thinking you can outwork a bad diet
A full day of calorie allocation goes roughly like the following when you workout:
- 80% goes to your daily physiological needs and vital functions. Think of things like making your heart beat, breathing, brain activity etc. There is an optimum amount of calories needed for that.
- 20% goes to your workout efforts (what most people call "burning fat")
So no matter what your workout is and how intense it is, you will only burn around 20% of the calories you intake that day and anything on top of the vital 80% remaining calories will be stored as fat.
Here is an easy (hypothetical) example:
Let's say you need...
Would you consider calisthenics art?
By calisthenics I mean it in its original sense, from the greek words "Kalos", beautiful, and "Sthenos", strength.
And if not an art, then it's definitely a meditation tool.
I learned to handstand by meditating without knowing I was meditating.
Learning to handstand allows us to tangibly feel the joy of balance. It requires focus, consistency and patience.
I have built the handstand program based on those principles and I strongly recommend learning how to do handstand to everyone.
You have access to the program inside your membership.
In the end, hand balancing is all about details.
Here is a slow motion video, where you can see every small adjustments that are needed while we are standing upside down.
The push up is the most famous calisthenics exercise in the world.
Everybody has tried one.
In this video, I am going to show you how to take your push ups to the next level with explosive push ups.
These are 4 different full body techniques to strengthen and tone your chest, triceps, core, and more!
It goes without saying that you have to master the classic push up first. You need to be able to do sets of 30+ reps with ease, before you move on to the explosive ones.
The shoulders are one of the most complex joints in the body, and they are a key to your overall strength.
You need strong shoulders for ANY upper body movement.
Calisthenics offers amazing and natural tools to train your shoulders.
So today I am going to show you and explain 4 exercises that will be an overall game changer for your shoulders.
Strength is often seen as a "two dimensional thing".
Specially when it comes to shoulder workouts!
People push or press, pull or row, go up or down.
But most of them are missing the rotational motion of the shoulders.
If your shoulders aren't strong and mobile enough fo this, I've got something you have to try.
These are techniques that are not often talked about...
But these are absolute game changers.
A strong back is the foundation of fitness. It governs something as important as your spine.
Calisthenics ring work is an amazing way to target your back and build great strength.
In today's video, I will show you 3 ring exercises that will be a game changer for your back workouts!
Note that you can also use a parallel bar and a pull up bar as a replacement if you don't have access to calisthenics rings.
Push ups are one of the most iconic calisthenics movement yet most people do them wrong.
Many of them actually lack core strength to perform proper push ups.
So today we'll dive into 3 movements to build the core-chest connection.
Each sequence will trigger different angles of attack for the chest and core. This will build solid form and make you gain mobility in the process.
These movements are part of the new Yogasthenics program, coming up in September, and available to all OnlineCalisthenics members.
Hitting the lower abs is crucial when training your core.
Calisthenics is the best way to get strong abs and today I am going to show you 3 different L-sit progressions to build lower abs strength.
Your overall progress will result from great form and the amount of time you hold these different L-Sit variations.
The difference between a 5 second hold and a 10 second one is immense.
Out of all foundation calisthenics movements, the pull up is the hardest. People are usually familiar with push ups and squats, but pull ups are always a challenge.
Most beginners lack range of motion when it comes to pulling skills.
So in today's video, I am showing you how to work on that, with 3 exercises to get instantly better at pull ups.
