🔎Are you looking for a way to improve your physique, get stronger and leaner, move better, and improve your health conveniently with minimal equipment?

If so, then calisthenics must be for you!

This is also the case for Wagner, a 33-year-old public servant who wants to improve his lifestyle and fitness level.🤸

Wagner has been pretty active throughout his life since he always enjoys playing sports, especially football. But recently, his lifestyle changed. Alongside becoming relatively sedentary, he also developed poor eating habits affecting his weight and lifestyle.

 to Minimal Equipment 💪

“I became interested in calisthenics when I saw someone training in a public square without using any kind of equipment except the bar. I was fascinated and wanted that as a way of life for me too.”

Like many, calisthenics caught Wagner’s attention because of the minimal training equipment. And that’s reasonable! There’s no need to purchase expensive training equipment or no need to avail of expensive gym memberships you need to renew.

You can start training with body weight if you can access a local park or get creative with your environment. There are plenty of options to choose from. For example, a tree branch can be a pull-up bar. Two sturdy chairs can be your dip station. While there will be some changes in your grip or hand placement, they will still work similarly to a pull-up bar or dip station.

This begs the question, “Do you need equipment for calisthenics?:” 

The answer is NO. 

There are alternatives for some exercises. However, minimal equipment, such as a pull-up bar and dip station, would make your life much easier and safer. It’s also very accessible and affordable if you ever would one to purchase one.

Many are intrigued by the minimalist approach of calisthenics, which is why Wagner also got hooked on the idea of bodyweight training.

👊Not All Calisthenics Programs Are Created Equal

“I actually used another fitness app before. But as it no longer served my purposes, so I looked for one that fit. Then I found the The Movement Athlete.” 

Calisthenics, in general, is an amazing approach for many fitness goals. However, many calisthenics programs and apps promise a lot but don’t deliver. Wagner has tried multiple programs before, but only upon finding The Movement Athlete app has he stuck to a program and realized that’s the one for him,

Why the TMA seems like a cut above the rest among the plethora of calisthenics apps and programs? Well, here are the reasons.

 

Personalized Training 🤳

“I signed up to see and test the progressions. And I loved it.”

The Movement Athlete app begins by providing a training assessment to gauge Wagner’s skill and training capacity. This assessment serves as a guideline for the app so its powerful AI can create a personalized workout that will suit his skill level.

Not all individuals are the same. A cookie-cutter workout that provides a         📍beginner, intermediate, or advanced level could actually be ineffective, if not dangerous, for progress. This type of workout doesn’t take into account individual differences. For example, a pull-up is considered a beginner move. However, not all beginners can do even a single rep of a pull-up. One may be strong with pull-ups but cannot perform a good push-up.

A program that lacks personalization can lead to two things:

  1.  😢Lack of progress because of unchallenging or too challenging workouts
  2.  🤕 Injuries and movement dysfunction due to a too-challenging regimen

A personalized training program removes this weakness so people get a workout that’s challenging enough but not too much that the risk of injury increases.

 

🎯Adaptive training with options

“I try to use it 5 days a week, but if I’m exhausted, I don’t train. I just do mobility exercises and stretches.”

On top of personalization, the TMA app also adds an element of adaptiveness. The program adapts to Wagner’s current situation.

The truth is that we can’t always give our full energy and time to our workouts. There will be times when accumulative fatigue sets in. If this happens, the program can adjust to provide you with a lighter approach to mobility work or a much lighter workout.

This is similar to the concept of having a deload week, but more so follows the 📍concept of auto-regulation. This is the secret of long-term, sustainable, and effective training. The TMA’s program for Wagner autoregulates by adjusting the training structure based on his daily energy levels and past training results. Doing so allows Wagner to get a challenging workout to help build and maintain progress without going overboard towards overfatigue and burnout.

Autoregulation keeps the workout effective while balancing mental and physical fatigue at the same time. By getting a PERSONALIZED and ADAPTIVE training program, Wagner continuously improves for the long term.

And now, here are some of the benefits he enjoys with the app.👇

 Benefits of Training with

The Movement Athlete

Convenient Training

“The main one is being able to train wherever and whenever you want. Calisthenics is freedom”

Since training with the app, Wagner can now train anytime and anywhere he wants to. Wagner can easily adjust the training equipment available to him; then, the app can provide a workout specific to the equipment he has right now.

If ever Wagner’s traveling, he doesn’t need to look for a gym or bring any equipment with him to train. All he needs to do is to show up and bring his mobile device with The Movement Athlete app.

 As Wagner said, calisthenics is freedom. Freedom in terms of you can dictate where and when to train. As well as giving your body freedom to move without restriction and pain. Calisthenics training is about improving your range of motion to express your strength and your body’s ability to move better. It helps you keep your mind free from possible stress regarding health and dysfunction. It’s freedom for your body, mind, and soul. It’s the freedom to move even as you age. The more you embrace calisthenics, the more freedom you get, just like Wagner is enjoying right now.

Life-long training journey

“The philosophy that training is for life and that I don’t need training just for 8 or 12 weeks”

A common practice for online workout programs proposes weeks or months of a training plan. However, there’s a big problem with this training structure. It sets you up only for a limited time, leaving you possibly unsure where to head next in your fitness journey.

 The Movement Athlete offers a lifetime of the training program as we view fitness as a lifelong journey. It does not stop after a training period. It does not stop after you master a specific move or skill. The journey continues as long as we’re alive and willing to improve ourselves.

 Wagner now enjoys the same philosophy as he sets up his fitness journey for success.

New knowledge

“I’m learning a lot from the texts; they are very enlightening.”

The Movement Athlete app acts like your online fitness coach, who is available to you 24/7. Not only it provides the workouts, but the app also shows how you need to perform the exercise and what it is for.

While following a ready workout seems convenient and optimal for most people, some programs lack proper guidance. This can be dangerous as exercises can be performed in bad form, leading to injuries and dysfunction.

With a “coach” guiding Wagner, thanks to the TMA app, he can perform exercises with good form. Good technique and form prevent injuries while maximizing the gains from the exercises.

For example, performing a push-up with an incomplete range robs you of getting a full stretch of your pecs and tricep muscles. Instead of building strength in the full range of motion, partial reps. You can read more on the mistakes to avoid when doing push-ups here:

You get a training program and complete guidance from the TMA app, so you can always get the most from your workout.

Wagner hasn’t trained with the TMA app for over a year, but he’s already experiencing meaningful progress in his strength, mobility, flexibility, and physique. He’s excited to see more of his progress in the coming months and years! 

📌Here are some tips from Wagner based on his training experience.

“Follow the process, today’s workout. The result will undoubtedly come.”

You might think since Wagner enjoys football, he’s already at a good starting point for calisthenics training. However, that is not the case. He actually started being overweight and relatively sedentary.

He opted to make a lifestyle change by improving his diet and incorporating calisthenics training, eventually leading to his progress.

Trust the process. And remember, fitness is a lifetime journey. It doesn’t get better overnight.

“Prioritize what really matters in health. And training is one of them.”

There are three things you need to keep in mind if you want to be healthy:

  1. 🤸Training – Calisthenics is one option, but you don’t need to limit yourself to calisthenics. Do what you really enjoy.
  1. 🍌Nutrition – Eat whole foods as much as possible and keep the “junk” in moderation. You don’t need to totally remove them unless you have a medical condition prohibiting you.
  1. 😎Rest – We get stronger during rest and not during our training. Get around 8 hours of high-quality, undisturbed sleep. And also manage your stress levels.

 

💧Health is everything. Make it a priority so you can function well for the rest of your life.
