Straightforward Calisthenics Workout

You can use a calisthenics workout to improve your fitness levels and reach new anti aging heights quickly. Calisthenic programs must include exercises that work to balance your abdominal muscles and hip flexors.

Complete core balance is optimal.

The main issue you have to correct before starting any calisthenic program is overworking your hip flexors. If you don't you'll run into lower back problems.

Overworking your hip flexors may change the curvature of your spine and place added stress on the front of your vertebral discs.

The strength of your hip flexors is an important part of a calisthenics workout but you need balance hip flexor exercises with good abdominal exercises.

Before starting any calisthenic training you need to determine which Calisthenics Exercises are best for each muscle group.

Basic calisthenics exercises that raise your feet or legs up off the floor will tend to focus more on your hip flexors rather than your abdominals. However your torso and upper abdominal muscles will stabilize your pelvis.

Calisthenic Tips For Your Abs

  • Use exercises that only work your abdominal muscles not your hip flexor
  • Do not use exercises that focus on your hip flexors more than twice a week.
  • Try to increase the number of abdominal exercises you do each week.
  • Do exercises such as back extensions, supermans, donkey Kicks, etc.
  • Use a flexibility program that works your entire body.
  • Always use proper exercise techniques during your calisthenics workout.

If your muscles do not have the strength to properly perform the exercises then assistor or stabilizer muscles will be used. In some cases this can lead to injury if the stabilizers are called into a situation they're not meant to be in.

As with any type of fitness training you need to make sure your nutrition is in line with your Calisthenics Workout.

4 Ways To Avoid Lower Back Pain During A Calisthenics Workout

  1. Keep one foot on the floor to reduce the stress placed on your spine and lower back. If you are performing calisthenics exercises that require both feet to be up off the floor at the same time you can change them so that one foot is always down.

  2. Putting a rolled up towel under your glutes will reduce the stress on your lower back by keeping your spinal column aligned properly.

  3. If you lift your head up and roll your shoulders forward a bit you will put your spine in a proper position to avoid injury.

  4. As mentioned earlier, do your hip flexor exercises before starting any ab exercises.

Sit-Up Tips

When doing sit-ups, bend your legs at approximately a forty five-degree angle at your hips. Place both of your feet flat on the floor about shoulder-width apart. Your legs should be turned outwards a wee bit. Do not pull your head forward with your hands.

When in this position, you will be able to slightly raise your torso up to a point where your shoulder blades come off the floor. This will cause most of your abdominal muscles and muscle fibers to become activated.

You can make the exercise more difficult by changing the variables.

You can add weight, do the exercises on a slight decline, change the position of your arms, etc. Here are some ways to change your arm position in order to make the sit ups more challenging:

  • Place them at your sides
  • Across your chest
  • At the back of your head
  • You can also put your hands together at the top of your head
