Wow you make it look so easy! I’ve been dipping in and out of getting fitter post baby🙉 my arms are pathetic, so thanks for tips and motivation 💜
Aww thank you! It definitely doesn’t feel that way and there has been many a time (and still is) where I can’t do things!!! ❤️❤️❤️
@Lucy Lismore Natural beauty-all the best girl!
This is exactly what I needed to progress my climbing skills! I’m gonna try this on Wednesday <3
This series is going to be very helpful for starting to learn calisthenics. Thankyou so much 🙏❤️. I’m gonna do this ❤️❤️
This is a very informative video. It is truly for beginners. I appreciate the progression exercises. Will embrace the journey and hope for good progress. We have to start somewhere. Cheers from Toronto Canada…and paws up to your kitty.
This is great! The idea of calisthenics has been flirting with me for years and I’ve never really done it, and I was looking for an easy beginners’ guide with little/no equipment to start exercising again, thanks!
Hey Lucy, I switched from knee press ups to inclined ones after watching another one of your videos and it’s really improved my overall press up movement. Thank you for this incredibly helpful tip! Still working towards non modified press ups but I’m getting there slowly.
“Enjoy being a beginner, and learn something new, enjoy the process.”
This is harder, than the excercises themselves.
Then instead, let’s choose to tell ourselves that it “is” not “harder than the exercises themselves”.
“Be patient and enjoy the process”. Excellent advice for ALL things!!!
I’m a girl and unlike most of my friends I don’t want to be slim, I want to build muscle and seeing these women have so much strength in their upper body really inspires me. So hell yeah I’m gonna do this till I have money to go to a gym or get a trainer.
YESSS! I was an athlete in HS so I have alarge legs. Would like my upper body to match, but not bulk to much!. Nothing like sexy legs, butt and back!
@An the meaning of ‘ripped’ is very lean so your comment makes no sense
@parajacks4 I’m literally 13 and lack any semblance of grace. And I’m stiff as a board 🥲 smiling through the PAINNNN
I see your authenticity, and I feel your vibe. Love the simple, honest, and transparent approach. Thank you. First time here, subscribed.
8 to 9 months thank you I tend to give up because I don’t notice any change but knowing it can take this long is actually really helpful!
Go lift weights in the gym and you’ll have results in just couple weeks. Also you can become much more stronger by lifting weights than doing anything else that is not lifting weights.
@Nihilist wrong, ignorant and wrong, even your gym trainers would say this that your body is your weight, you gym buffs are addicted to crutches.
@Nihilist you see results in a couple weeks doing this too. It’s just more difficult to see progress because the progressions aren’t measured with a definitive number and progressing from one exercise to another typically involves a significant load difference (certainly not as simple as adjusting in 5lb increments). So progress appears slow. At the end of the day how quickly you progress depends on how good your routine is and whether you can tailor your routine to reach your goals. Neither method is superior. The only muscle group you really can’t hit effectively without weights is the low back, and legs absolutely benefit from weighted exercise over bodyweight alone. But to say that weights build superior strength is just wrong. Strength is relative. A calisthenics athlete may not be able to win in a deadlifting competition, but the average weightlifter can’t do a muscle up, planche, human flag, or single arm pull-up (not without injuring themselves at least). Its a different kind of strength. Weights tend to build larger muscle groups while calisthenics train the large and small muscle groups (less isolation). I think the perfect exercise routine would include both bodyweight and weighted exercises to get the benefits of both.
“One day, what you’re doing today – which feels impossible, will be your warmup” — best motivational training comment ever!!
That’s what I LOVE about calisthenics/z weightlifting/body weight more than any other sport. Or gymnastics
This is so trueee
It’s true. I couldn’t do two push-ups. Now I do 15 before work everyday to get me pumped.
Embrace the suck!…..become comfortable…being uncomfortable!…….this makes training a way of life and daily living easier….???
Very informative, thank you, Lucy.
Okay, I’ve watched a couple of your videos and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to start exercising. I’m not young, I’m overweight and I haven’t exercised much in awhile but…you’ve motivated me. Thank you for these videos. 🙂
First video I’ve seen admitting that it takes a long time to archieve these skills properly. Mostly the instructors give the unrelistic impression to expect fast improvements. Thank you for the good advice to enjoy the long process. That will help significantly to make training a habit of its own.
Well said. I‘m a 50+ guy and I started moderate exercise — but every day — a couple of years ago. I followed an online program, started small and worked up. One exercise I absolutely hated was the humble pushup… I can do a decent number of pushups now but it took about a year to really get them flowing. I found building chest muscle to be really hard. Most fitness things seem to require that 6-12 month time frame. But once you got them, it‘s so good.
Finally a real BEGINNER friendly introduction. Thank you very much. Your story is very impressive!
I’m 14 and a girl and I’ve always thought this was cool. I’m also tired of being called weak so this is one thing I wanna try
goodluck, keep us posted on your progress?
This is my fourth day doing a version of each of these at night. I used to get discouraged because I couldn’t keep up with a ton of cardio. This is a great place to start with some added stretching. Thank you for the beginner video!
Negatives are a great way to build up strength! That is the “slowing down the eccentric movement” that you mentioned in the video! This is an amazing video! Great job on the production quality!
I really want to start calisthenics and i think this video is very beginner friendly I’ll start doing these everyday and guess I’ll update you guys day 1 is done✅
