The Calisthenics Training Program

Calisthenics Training

Weight training equipment like dumbbells and barbells are no doubt great tools for getting in shape, but calisthenics training offers a lot of benefits that are very useful. You don’t need any equipment except a bar for some exercises, and you can workout anywhere, from your local park to your bedroom. But I think the biggest reason to incorporate calisthenics into your fitness program is you get to have a lot of fun performing the exercises. This calisthenics training routine will hit the major muscle groups in your body including abs, chest, legs, back, shoulder, biceps and triceps.

Does This Program Work?

Using bodyweight movements allow you to train multiple muscle groups at a time, which is great for developing strength and muscle. For example, it is easy to look at the simple pushup as working the exact same muscles as the bench press. And by employing the right pushup variations, you can achieve good progressive resistance with this exercise to continue adding to your strength level and muscle mass. One other key factor why you can rely on this calisthenics training program for results is it was created by one of the most recognized names in the calisthenics world – the Bar Brothers. This is one of the programs they have personally used to help build their amazingly ripped physiques.

Directions For This Training Program

According to the bar brothers, they train 3-5 days per week, 1-2 hours per session. You can split these routines through out the week, either 1 or 2 routines a day, whatever works best for you.

You can also customize the program to your personal needs whether you are a beginner, intermidiate or advanced. You can pick out the exercises that help you the most or what you prefer to do. you can also adjust the reps and workout schedule to fit your fitness level and personal preferences.
