Wether you are a complete beginner or you already workout, pull ups will always be demanding.
In this video, you will learn about foundation pulling exercises and progressions that will improve your pulling strength and overall back/shoulder mobility.
Let me show you how to get strong abs with 6 different plank variations.
In this video I show you the some of the best calisthenics exercises to build a solid core.
These plank workouts will increase your core strength and benefit all the other movements you are practicing, such as handstands, levers or planche.
Many people work on their core and don't see the results they want.
The key is to target the lower abs to build solid core foundations.
In this video I talk about how to do that with 10 exercises, from beginner to more advanced.
I also address some important points about how the core works, how to burn fat and build muscle overall.
Every day is leg day!
It needs to be the way we think about how important our legs are.
Workout your legs as much as you can. On days where you don't, make sure to do some active stretching, to keep making your legs strong.
Our legs have to be strong and mobile in order to cary our bodies around, ALL the time.
Here is a video to show you some great calisthenics exercises that will help you build explosive and strong legs.
Here is a video to show you 21 different exercise variations to give you ideas you can use at the park or at home.
These drills don't require a pull up bar. All you need is a simple jump rope (for a cardio warm up) and a light resistance band.
Here is the video summary:
Have you ever heard of kinetic chains?
This helps visualize that the human body is a complex and fascinating machine.
It works as a full unit. Calisthenics is one of the best way to put your muscle chains to work.
Everything is connected. It means that when you move one muscle, you also activate a chain reaction.
So let's chat about what a muscle chain is, and the role it plays in our movements.
Understanding this concept will give you sustainable results.
This will help you move more efficiently, save energy and reduce injuries.
Learn how calisthenics can help you take control of your body.

A lot of us workout from home these days.
Here is a video where I talk about 6 push ups variations that you can do anywhere and that will help you target your chest and triceps.
These home workout sets are good for intermediate calisthenics practitioners. You can also use them if you are an "advanced" beginner and want to break a plateau in your push up training.
There are a lot of other different push ups and this selection is an introduction.
These push ups are made to trigger more angles and add variations to your traditional push up routine. I recommend using and mixing these alternatives in your training.
Let me know if you have questions and have a good workout!
Let's talk about the secret to get good at pull ups: the "false" grip.
Many people want to do pull ups but their grip strength gives up after a few repetitions.
Keep in mind that your grip is one of the most important component of strength, and being able to hold a bar with a "false grip" will dramatically improve the quality of all your movements.
This will increase your pull ups, muscle ups, as well as push ups, handstands and more.
The "False" grip generates a lot of contraction in the forearms and forces us to use more of our forearm extensors, while these are usually under trained with a "classic" grip.
You will find 3 different levels of training for your false grip:
Practice at the level that suits you, and work your way up progressively!
Have a good workout!
Let's focus on how to get a full calisthenics warm up in 10 minutes.
We all need to warm up our muscles, but also joints and soft tissues, before working out. Sometimes people miss out on that part.
In this video I show and explain the main movements you can use, before any workout, to get a complete warm up in 10 minutes.
I personally also use the wrists and forearms stretches every night before I go to sleep. It is a great natural relaxing technique.
I highly recommend it.
