Introduction to this section

This part of the training focuses on basic squat exercises. Joe shows us how to do the basic squat in order to minimize risk of injury and maximize the exercise benefits you get for your muscles. With almost all these exercises, the technique with which you do them is very important. With the correct technique you will get good results.

Wall squats
Toe taps
Butt kickers
Knee raises
Skater side lunges

Lunches are great exercises to strengthen and tone your butt and thigh muscles. This is another great exercise that you can do anywhere and doesn't require a lot of space. The basic lunge is a very age-proven exercise, and is a must for any leg training or toning routine. You can alternate between forward lunches and back lunges to hit more of the muscles of your leg.


In this part of the calisthenics workout routine class Joes shows us the right way to do the classic pushup. Your chest must be right over your arms in order to get the maximum benefit from each pushup. Pushups are great exercises to help you strengthen your chest as well as your triceps and your shoulders.

Push-ups: correct form
Working up to your first pull-up

In this part of the course you learn how to work up to your first pull up if you are not able to do pull ups yet. There are two kinds of pull ups: where your hands are facing out and where your hands are facing in. The type where your palms are facing out is easier to do at first because your biceps are engaged. The pull up is one of the all time best calisthenics exercises because it works your back and arms in a natural way.


In this part of the training, you will learn the basic ab workout position that many of the additional ab exercises start from. If you create an ab workout routine, you can alternate many different ab workouts, and after each different exercise, you can come back to this basic ab position. This makes for a great ab routine because it never takes the tension away from your abs, and continues to stress the ab muscles.
