Body weight exercises

I've decided to take a break from the weights for awhile, because of my right thigh(years of lifting, along with lifting too heavy and overdoing it) and decided to do body weight exercises. Now, I already do a lot of push-ups, but I wanted a body weight workout to work my whole body and I came across this YouTube video:





What do you guys think of it?


Btw, I did this body weight exercise last night before going to bed, and I must admit, it's a challenge. lol I did three sets of them six workouts that's in the video. It'll work you harder than weights can.

    Work on your handbalancing too fam. Not too many people know that balance is strength!

    Thats how most olympic gymnast are stong as 🤬 . Of course do the pistols, jumps and sprints for your legs.

    Google Christopher Sommers too for more information on diffrent bodyweight workouts, he's an olympic gymnast coach.

    Didn't watch the whole video. I love weight lifting but truthfully (and I did it when I was younger) you only need the following exercises to build a nice body:

    Pullups - upper back/shoulders
    Dips - chest/triceps
    Hanging knee raises - abs
    Squats or lunges - legs
    Back extensions - lower back

    And you'll only need weights for the legs. You can do alot with just that alone.

    You can always throw in push ups and burpees (ugh!) as well but i always fall back to those 5 above moves when I need to give my central nervous system a break from going all out with weights

    It's all about balance bro, just came back from the gym did a full rotation from 4:00pm to 6:00pm... You have to work on your elevation and balance. Then can increase your maximum strength.. You might want to look into vortex exercising as well...

    Hmm.. It's basically you are strengthening your core system. Power duration.. To give you that maximum performance..

    Looks tough. Good job switching it up and listening to your body so you don't hurt worse. I do Insanity, and that uses a lot of bodyweight resistance.

    Props fam. I did this exercise again last night and it'll still wear you out. lol Each of the six exercises, I do 3 sets of 20, and it's a killer.

    Thanks for the vid. I'm going to add that to my routine and see how it works. I'm into basic cardio and weight lifting. I need to switch up my routine since I'm not getting the full results I want.

    Those are some serious pushups. I think I may have to incorporate those into my routine!

    I f you have done body building in past and now you are not finding the proper time then friend it is not a problem more.You must have to do some push ups and chin ups on daily basis.It will keep your body stretched and tight other wise as you know that the irregular big gaps in body building make the body again bulky which also looks awkward.

    I mix it up with weights and calisthenics. Both serve their purpose. People usually lean towards one or the other but I think u can reach your max potential using both.

    Ok Ok i see oyu playa with the clapping pullups i might have to try that but i dont think the bar is high enough

    Hook me up with a routine

    I got Bars at the park and parallel bars..

    I usually do

    3 sets of 15 dips.

    3 sets of 10 chins

    3 sets of 10 pullups

    occasionally do wide grip ..

    i got a couple of kids under my wing that hang at the park.. two 14 year olds they use to 🤬 about it now they are good with it.. and seeing results

    Here is these two clowns joking around

    Bruh to get maximum results from calisthenics u gotta experiment and push urself. I'm sure 3 sets of 10 pull-ups aint doing nothin for your back anymore. This is what I did during the summer. I also have a resistance band.

    Monday/Wednesday
    Chest, Triceps, Shoulders – 5 Rounds to 10 Rounds
    1. Jump rope- 30 seconds
    2. 20 standard push-ups
    3. Frontal Raises – 10 Each Side
    4. Tricep Extensions – 10 Each Side
    5. Lateral Raises – 10 Each Side
    6. 15 Diamond Push-ups
    7. Jump rope- 30 seconds
    90-120 second rest between each round

    Tuesday/Friday
    Back, Biceps
    10 minute Jump rope
    1. 50 Pull-ups/50 Chin-ups
    2. Bicep curls- 5 sets/12 reps
    Alternate 5-10 pull-ups with bicep curls then finish off with chin-ups

    I’d recommend doing Ab Ripper X from P90X 2-3 times a week.

    if u want to do muscle ups do more pull-ups in volume...if u can add some type of weight on u..maybe feel a backpack with big rocks or something...the hardest and most important part on muscle ups is getting past the pull-up part

    Ever try Insanity? No weights, just your body resistance.

    Push ups and pull ups both are very nice exercise to build the chest. These exercises also useful for the triceps and biceps of muscles and give the strengthen to muscles.

    Almost forgot about this thread I made. lol I've switched my calisthenics up a bit; here's what I do now:

    50 push-ups
    2 sets of 25 mountain climbers
    2 sets of 25 half-burpees
    50 jogs
    50 jumping jacks
    2 sets of 25 prison squats
    2 sets of 25 jumping squats

    Then I rest for a couple minutes and repeat everything. I call the exercise "The 7 100's", because there's 7 total exercises and 100 total reps for each exercise, totaling 700 total reps. I still lift weights, as well.
