  • Which calisthenics movement should I start excercising?

    Hey

    Im at day 21 of military fit and its awesome. Im actually 15 and when i got on this little world i thought that this period of my life was going to be all basic strength with only dumbells and abs excercises, so when I hit 18 i could start going to the gym. And now ive got a lot of knowledge, with my dad helping ofc ( he knows about nutrition and "hypertrofy"? Dunno if thats the right word ). Now i love those power circuits where you train tons of muscles, but i fell deeper with calisthenics. When you get the required strength, you can just go to the park and have fun. So thats what i want to do, calisthenics.

    ... But when i started excercising, i could only do 4 pushups. I can do 20 now, i feel like its a good progress, but dont know if its good enough. I really want to start adding excercises on my routines to try to do stuff like l-sits, planches, front levers, flags, handstands, etc. But i dont know if i should start doing basic excercises for basic moves, or if i should wait and get more strength. Help me please :>

    You probably mean hypertrophy-specific training?

    That's great progress, man. I don't know why you're doing military fit though, it's not very suitable for beginners, but, hey, you having fun is all that matters.

    Admirable. And yes, you need a very solid strength, coordination and flexibility foundation to even tackle planches, flags and other complicated moves (plyometrics? definitely!)

    With that said if callisthenics is your goal I would suggest going for Strength Protocol (it's built with classic calisthenic exercise sets, but you have to be able to do 30 PushUps) or 30 Days of Strength which focuses on upperbody strenght and includes bar exercises. (Pull-up bar, not drinking. Alas)

    Also there is a book on calisthenics that I would recommend that features progressions in complex calisthenic exercises like pistols, handstands, flags and whatnot as well as sample programs.

      J3ster oh yeah, forgot to mention that i have done stuff before, but very irregularly. When i had the mood, i used to do a few pushups, dumbells, abs and strangely some legs (god now that im typing i feel like a lazy and ignorant guy)

      And I have completed Strength Protocol too, but I switched to MFit because SP excercises felt way too light for me

        Strength protocol and MFit are different.
        One way would be to increase the level of difficulty in strength protocol.

        Like there are PU with elevated legs- do them with hold times in the lower position. There are one-arm PU- try them with elevated legs. Increase the elevation of the legs and go for handstand PU.
        There´s the frog stand (don´t remember the name within the program)- you can advance from there- longer hold time, legs up, legs staight going for a handstand and planche.

          I just want to throw in that we happen to have workouts in the making specifically made as preparation for the planche, front lever, muscle up and more

                  Oh Lord
                  Might try it on saturdays, when i go running to a park with calisthenics equipment (the only issue is that i still need to recover my bíceps and i cant even do 2 chins :c )

                  Do you guys work on other movement preps? Is it released yet and im stupid? This is the last one?

                      What calisthenic exercises should you do? All of them, as many as you can, as often as you can, whenever you can, where ever you can, and however you can.

                      Follow your dieting instructions from your dad and if you have questions, you can ask him or us or both.

                        TheRaven it's a good news. I think you can add two new filters in the "Special" box of workout page: "Preparation" (to retrieve the preparation workout) and "Express" (to retrieve the express workout)
