Section 2: Ab workouts
02:07

In this part of the course, we cover basic crunches and sit ups. Crunches and sit ups are an essential part of your calisthenics ab exercise routine, and many of the more advanced exercises and exercise variations will build off the basic crunches and sit ups so it is important to get the correct technique for your crunches and sit ups.

01:35

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.

00:47

V-ups are a good ab exercise because it forces you to also work on your stability, and engages more of your core than the typical sit up or crunch. On the way up and down in your v-up, you must keep control of your body, and your whole core is engaged in the process of keeping things stable. When you start, do this exercise slowly so that you can focus on maintaining your stability on the way up and down.

00:48

Advanced v-ups are good ab exercises that give you a little bit more of a challenge than regular v ups.

00:35

Bicycle sit-ups are a great way to engage your core, and also work the side of your abs at the same time. This exercise builds on the basic sit up, and adds a twist at the end. The twist engages the side of your abs.

01:20

Side sit ups are great to work the side of your abs. The side of your abs, give you an overall stronger core, more body stability, and overall strength. Beginners usually neglect the side of the abs, but it is a very important muscle group.

01:28

Flutter kicks and scissor kicks are additional effective ab exercises that you can add to your ab workout routine. These exercises work the lower part of your ab muscles. This way you get your entire ab muscle group worked since we now have coverage of the upper abs, lower abs, and your side abs.

01:04

How to put all the ab exercises we learned in previous tutorials into one great ab workout routine that will work your entire abdominal muscle group. If you put all these exercises together, it might make for the best calisthenic ab workout routine you can have.

Section 3: Back and core strenghtening
01:07

The plank and different variations of the plank should be a part of any calisthenics workout routine. In this part of the training Joe shows how to do the basic plank which helps to make your back and core stronger. The plank also helps you to improve your balance.

01:13

Advanced plank variations to add to your workout routine to help you strengthen your core and abs.

01:03

The superman is a calisthenics exercise for the lower back. You should be careful when working out your lower back because it is easy to pull something since the back back be so sensitive. Nevertheless, this exercise is a good one to add to your workout routine as long as you are careful with it.

00:56

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.

Section 4: Stretches
11:14

In this part of the training, Joe explains when you should stretch, how you should stretch, and whether you should stretch before a workout or after a workout. The answer is that you want to stretch before a workout and after a workout. The main difference is that you never want to stretch cold muscles. Before stretching, do a little bit of physical activity that is nice and easy. So you start with basic and simple exercises for a few minutes just to do a small warmup. After the small warmup, you stretch your muscles and focus on your joints like your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, neck, and elbows. Joe shows how to loosen up the body from the upper body to the lower body. First he focuses on loosening the neck from side to side and then front and back. After that he loosens up his shoulders with small circles going forward and then going back. After that he does the cross-arm shoulder stretch. After that he loosens up the elbows by rotating them out and then in. After that he rotates the wrists side to side. After that Joe shows how to stretch the rib cage. After stretching the ribs, Joe shows how to stretch the hips, and after that he loosens up the lower back, then the hips, knees and ankles.
