I will start by stating that my workout is strict calisthenics based (meaning i do not use weights or exercise with olympics lifting drills).
This does not mean that i have no experience or knowledge of how to use weights.
Being a personal trainer one has to know a little bit of everything to enhance one's credibility.
Throughout my few years of fitness training i have come to mess with extreme circuit training having brought me closer to CROSSFIT at some point.

For a really long time I had only and always been driven by the infamous saying
"PAIN IS WEAKNESS LEAVING THE BODY"
until i reached a level of performance and aesthetic which suggested that i get familiar with the following saying: "
What a disgrace it is
for a man to grow old
without ever seeing
the BEAUTY AND STRENGTH of which
his BODY is capable

".
The key is really just an open secret people manage not to stick to: WORK ETHIC that encompasses Hard Work, Dedication and Determination.

I could never give enough details about how i workout and what i exactly do.
I would however manage to give some headlines about what exercises i use to target differents body parts.

Functionality is one thing you perceive easily when calisthenics topic is brought up.
Calisthenics is a set of functional movements and exercises that get your body to where
it needs to be as a super fit entity.

Benefits of working out with calisthenics are countless.
The very obvious ones are those of "Injuries Proof" and "Cheap Equipments".
Not saying that you will be injury free when you workout with calisthenics;
however working out with your body weight will ready your body
(in particular your tendons and ligaments which are the hardest pieces
to condition and recover from due to the low blood irrigation through the latter)
slowly to sustain greater stress applied to it in the future.
In extreme weight weights lifting,in the least amount of time, one is compelled to progress
and add a whole lot of weights to your routines.
This practice will most likely wear your joints (ligaments and tendons) down.

Notice that it took mankind millions of years to adjust body weight and joints to functional motions.
It would be only right that a body which took centuries to adapt to its own weight
gets broken down when forced to handle ridiculously heavy weights in just a lifetime.

Let us take TIKTAALIK which is is a monospecific genus of extinct sarcopterygian (lobe-finned fish) with
many features akin to those of tetrapods (four-legged animals).Tiktaalik lived approximately 375 million years ago.
It is said that it was one of those species pioneers of the transition from water to land and thus our ancestors.
When in shallow water that fish was believed to execute some PUSHUPS to extend enough out of water to breathe some air then drop back down in it and so on.


THAT IS AN ILLUSTRATION OF THAT FIRST GLIMPSE OF PUSHUPS USEFULNESS
STARTED OCCURRING 375 MILLIONS YEARS AGO AND THEREBY IMPRINTED IN OUR DNA AS
A NATURAL RESSOURCE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF.

As much as we may tend to mistake CORE with RECTUS ABDOMINIS
which is the ABS muscle, the core is consisted of the latter ,
the transversus abdominis, the multifidus, the erector spinae(sacrospinalis),
the internal and external obliques , the diaphram.
Latissimus dorsi , gluteus maximus, and trapezius add up to the list
as minor core muscles.
The core strength is really important as it is responsible
for the stability and control of oneself during any motion.
For example women use core muscle during delivery.


The following pictures represent some of the basic exercises i use for my core workout routines.
However i will address few routines later on another page.


Dragon-flag
(Advanced Exercise)
Usually used for the whole core strength and torque.

Crunches
(Basic Exercise)
Usually used for the core (Rectus abdominis/Abs)endurance.


Leg-raise
(Basic/Advanced Exercise)
Used for building the core (Rectus abdominis/Abs targeted) strength and endurance.

Leg-raise-pullup-stance
(Basic/Advanced Exercise)
Used for building the core (Rectus abdominis/Abs targeted) strength and endurance
Notice that getting on a pullup stance will just spice it up a bit.


Arms-stepping
(Basic/Advanced Exercise)
This exercise isn't mainly targetting core..
However i use it because to perform it properly
one needs to engage the whole core in order to make
the sturdy as a board.

Triceps-extention-with-towels
(Basic/Advanced Exercise)
This exercise isn't mainly targetting core..
However i use it because to perform it properly
one needs to engage the whole core in order to make
the body sturdy like a board.
