Bodyweight Beginner Calisthenics Workout

Tribesports has come out with another great workout guide that can be done at the park (if it ever stops snowing!)   This routine consists of 5 repetitions of 5 different exercises:
  1. Australian Pull-ups 
  2. Split Squats (right leg) 
  3. Split Squats (left leg) 
  4. Lying Knee Tucks 
  5. Push-ups
Not sure what an Australian Pull-up is?  Neither was I till I watched the video guide.  

I don't have a lot of upper arm strength yet, but I think the pull-ups will be a great way to work on that.  My form for push ups leaves a lot to be desired as well, but it's getting better!

  1. Wow, I'm still utterly confused! I think I have to watch that again a few times. . . is the easy looking stuff with the knees at the end still part of the Australian Pull-up? If so, I have a Canadian version to propose that involves closing the dishwasher door with your outstretched foot and then sprinting to the balcony where you do several crouches over a full kitty litter box where you do a lot of scooping before running back inside to wash/warm your hands. . . if you have OCD, it could burn a LOT of calories (or in my case, just lead to a mild and tolerable case of toxoplasmosis).
