Body weight exercies (calisthenics)

Post by soulblazer27 » Wed May 04, 2011 11:38 pm

What I want to know is if anyone has a good full body exercise routine working entirely with your body weight. I have a few good routines I try to use which are:

1. pull ups
2.any ab workout
3.tricep dip
4.inverted row
5.push ups
6. and some ass work out thats a killer..

do you guys know of any others?

i use pullup, dip,pushup,inverted row, squat, stepup, plank in that order.

there are three pairs of broadly complimentary movements (pullup/dip),(pushup/inverted row),(squat/stepup). some suggest situps instead of planks; this choice depends on your view of abdominal flexion.

there was a bodyweight section in the exercise directory at http://www.exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; but you'll need to look at the muscle or exercise view and click on things you're interested in to see ex suggestions.

Remember that you can do plyometric versions of several of those.

You can try one arm/one leg push-ups, one arm pull-ups and one legged squats when that becomes too easy.
I think that you don't need to work your abs.
