Bodyweight Training

Calistenics is an often overlooked and underutilised training tool. Yet you will find that it has been used as a staple by many old school conditioning coaches. I always begin bodyweight training with any new clients. Whereas swinging a kettlebell takes some time to learn, bodyweight training is much safer to begin with and can even be used as a deload week as a break from weights.

We have tons of really challenging bodyweight workouts that require zero equipment, and can be challenging from any level from beginner to advanced.

Bodyweight Exercises:

  • Pressups
  • Burpees
  • Situps
  • Lunges
  • Jump Squats
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Leg Raises
  • Planks
  • Pullups
  • Chinups
