You might be able to overhead press your body weight, you might be able to planche, you might be able to do a bend back with your legs straight, and yet, for some reason, your handstand still ends up lacking. Why is that? It is because handstands are a combination of balance, strength, mobility, control and practice. Having any less than all five of these elements will leave you wanting more from your handstands.Read More

Here at the School of Calisthenics we like to break down complex movements, explain the principles behind them, what we need to do and then how we can progressively build up the specific strength aspects we need for things like the Human Flag.
The Human Flag is certainly one of those movements that feels impossible when you first try it. But stick with us and we’ll show you how to redefine your impossible!Read More

For this workout we're going to focus on TIME instead of reps.
We're going to do 4 sets of each exercise with no break in between the exercises - but a 2 minute break between circuits (upon completion of one set of all 4 exercises). Each exercise will be performed for 1 minute each.
This is a great fat burning workout and you can adjust the intensity by using different bands! Let's get it going! Clock Jumps: 1 Min Unilateral Rows: 1 Min each arm Boxer Press: 1 minute Arm Circles: 1 minute in each direction REPEAT x4 Let us know what you think! We're going to be putting out a new workout series every week! Stay Strong Banditz. Details: This workout focuses on keeping up your heart rate. Real strength is forged when you've got absolutely nothing left - so push yourself as hard as you can for the time allotted for each exercise. Wear away all the energy you've got until all you're pushing through with is pure will power. On the other side, this circuit is great for fat loss. It's intensity and "High Rev" nature will get your heart rate up, and make sure you get those calories running for their money!
This is a full body workout but the main muscles that are focused on in this circuit are:
Clock Jumps: Legs (cardio)
Unilateral Rows: Back/Arms
Boxer Press: Chest/Legs/Arms
Arm Circles: Shoulders/ArmsRead More

One great feature about working out with looped resistance bands is that you can combine different training concepts into each exercise. It’s great to explore the way your body naturally moves and challenge yourself by combining variations in strength, stretching, and stabilization. This exercise is an example that combines all three of those pillars. Don’t be afraid to get creative. Think outside the band.Read More
