  • Truly, an excellent video. This one ranks up there with your technique video for the Bulgarian Split Squat. These exercises are on my ‘todo’ list.:)

  • I realize this is 5 years old, but I’m glad you’ve stopped the continuous music in the background; too distracting and it felt strained when listening to your instructions.

  • Be careful on how hard you’re landing on some of these. Best to land lightly for the sake of joints, I recommend a touch pad for some of the plank/ ground exercises to measure landing force and keep that minimal.

  • I was having a pizza with my friend when he said he was on a diet and pizza is his regular cheat meal and part of diet plan he got from *Next Level Diet*. I thought he was crazy, but after a month I noticed his body has changed a lot. He looked better than ever. I should really visit that website

  • After this Corona thing is over, I assume that fitness industry will take a major hit as a lot of us will be just ok with working out at home. No more paying unnecessary huge gym and trainer fees

  • Yes you’re absolutly right, bodyweight brings you a lot of muscles.! If you don’t trust pigmie, I did a 1 year body transformation video, and you can see by yourself the effects… Anyway, I like this bodyweight workout videos, always very professional

  • I got my diet plan from NextLevelDiet and lost 2kg in just 10 days. So far, so good. Can’t wait to see numbers on scale after 20 more days. I am so excited about this.

  • I think its called Ballistic Bodybuilding, and must be done carefully so as not to overstrain. But Great way of Bulking without extra weights!

  • Anyone tried the Custokebon Secrets (do a search on google)? We’ve heard many awesome things about this popular lose weight diet plan.

  • 1:15 Plank push-ups.

  • Hello.
    I am currently doing a mix of self wight exersise and regular fitnes (ass you said iron addict). I am 210 pounds and 6.23 foot tall.
    I am verry pleased by the overall resolts I am getting.
    Do you have an oppinion as to how best to incorporate these two stules of workout.
    (sory for my speling)

  • Jeeze I need to start incorporating this kind of training. Like he said, so many train slow and controlled but not explosively. So tempted to buy one of his programs. I’ve learned so much but still so many questions.

  • Jeff, about what percentage of the Athlean Xero Program involves handstands? I must not do any of them for medical reasons, e.g., brain tumor, brain hemorrhage, coma. I am cleared to exercise in any other posture, but not those involving sustained inversion. Thanks for your estimate.

  • I have to fkn improvise, like where I leave I cannot do jag shit, I have to do pull ups in the top side bars of a rotting football goal that wags the shit out of itself:P

  • after 5 months of ‘starting’ with the pullups, i’m only able to do two reps. i give up. that pat is not for me genetically. Lost cause

  • The most important thing in doing bodyweight exercises is to do slow reps. Number of reps in not important. Quality of the reps is the key.
    Slower reps = gains

  • I see lots of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (do a search on google). But Im uncertain if it is good. Have you ever tried this popular fat loss system?

  • If your muscle gets bigger, it automatically gets stronger, so why all the bullshit about training for “size” or “strength” as separate categories.

  • There’s countless youtube videos that already show this. But what we need to see is the detail food to eat in order for these “cilesthenic body workouts” to actually work.

  • summary:
    40-70 reps/bodypart -> do it 2-3 times a week
    1 exercise should consist of 5-15 reps. Change the workout if it’s outside this range
    this requires some measuring, but if you want to put extra attention about nutrition:
    consume extra 100-300 kcal/day
    consume protein 2g/kg body weight.

  • Jeff you won’t believe this, I actually kinda figured the first one out by myself…. But I started doing it while seated, it’s good but yeah I remember your lesson more that standing exercises are superior…. Still feel proud about it though ����
    Thanks Jeff!

  • I GOT 2KG OF LEAN MUSCLE MASS IN ONE MONTH!!! I simply visited website called Next Level Diet and they provided me with diet plan, training plan along with amazing fitness and nutrition tips. Believe me, it’s just amazing!!! #*Next Level Diet*

  • Leg day is extremely important. Your arms should never be bigger than your legs, if it is then you will look disproportionate as fuck

  • As I started following diet and training plan from *Next Level Diet*, I took my confidence to the next level. Girls finally started noticing me.

  • Who would have believe that I will finally find a diet that works. It’s called NextLevelDiet and you are just a few steps away from getting your diet prepared. Trust me, don’t waste your time on stupid diets and fat loss pills or teas.

  • Guys. lost lots of weight doesn’t need to be hard (I used to think it did). I’m going to give you some tips right now. Look for a popular weight loss system called Fenoboci Diet Plan (do a google search). Thanks to it I’ve lost tons of weight. I probably should not even be talking about it cause I do not want lots of other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I’m just in a great mood today so I will share the wealth haha.

  • I notice on that pushup you were doing and, as I see you do on benching with the BB, or DB, that you don’t go all the way down. You have a reason you do everything, so what’s up with this.

  • am 38 years of age about 240 ibs about 6´2“ I have never work out my only problem with working out is I have been epileptic since I was 14 years old however it is under control with medical. do you think working out will harm me. Am 38 feel like 78 help please

  • As specialist, I do think Custokebon Secrets is actually great way to lost crazy amounts of weight. Why not give it a chance? perhaps it’ll work for you too.

  • For the doorway curls idk what he means why turn the forearm… was hoping he did the other side so I could see how the hands look

  • Jeff straight away read my mind. I was feeling somewhere addicted to weight training and felt quite monotonic. Every lifting the same weight. Thought of incorporating some explosive body weight exercises…..and bam! Jeff drops a video at the right time.

  • When it comes to eating healthy, you have to try not to fall victim to modern fad diet plans. Extreme diets are a danger for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your daily nutritionary intake. While they may generate quick weight loss, these diet plans are never a long-term answer for your waistline. You should check out Fenoboci Diet Plan on the internet since it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • Do natural popular lose weight methods like Custokebon Secrets really work and if so, how effective are they? We’ve heard numerous awesome things about this popular weight loss method.

  • Can anyone tell me how much time is needed (months) for noticable growth of muscles, for example I always had all muscles visible but chest muscles is what I am struggling. I’ve been doing calisthenics for one and a half month..Thanks

  • You want to increase speed and free movement, just do 300 punches in air with full speed without stopping. Than increase the number and then get 2 stones in hands and do the same. Do this for a week. Do speedy ‘spartan pushup’ on punch.

  • As I started following diet and training plan from NextLevelDiet, I took my confidence to the next level. Girls finally started noticing me.

  • I’m really into these videos. Everything’s kept fun and interesting, that’s always a good thing or I’ll just get bored of it. I watched your tips how to do a back handspring and back flip earlier, went to the local park in the evening and I was there for about half hour just practicing, haven’t done either yet though, it’s not lack of strength or flexibility, it’s still just lack of confidence doing those moves. Like you said though, repetition is important so I’ll be doing it often, I really hope to do them soon ; )

    Good stuff, ta very much.

  • i do 100 push ups and then 100 sit ups then that excersize where you cycle in the air and i do 50 of those but i cant do 100 in a row, i take breaks in between and so i do sets of 20 of all of them and ive made quite a lot of progress but i dont think im loosing weight and i also walk 5 blocks to school and 5 blocks back and so im confused, what do i do?

  • This is what i exactly do to replace bench press [ as i don’t have enough equipment in my home gym] and finally jeff approved it:)! Thank’s jeff And you really seem to have some influence from bruce lee type of training.

  • Do anyone know about Custokebon Secrets? Does it really work? I hear many people lost their weight with this popular fat burn method.

  • this is what I try to tell my friend who is about 5,7 and 180 or so and he is trying to get back into working out because of work and everything, he already has really big arms so I told him that if he could do calisthenics with me for a couple months because he would look a lot better instead of gaining more size which he doesn’t need he would feel better if he got more definition and ripped and lose his stomach fat and look a lot better

  • I just wanted to have flat belly, so I tried fat loss plan from NextLevelDiet. Guess what? I lost my beer belly in just 30 days. Now I want a six pack:D

  • Its still shock me just how a lot of people don’t know about Custokebon Secrets even though a lot of people using it. Thanks to my pal who told me about it. I’ve lost tons of weight.

  • You should do a video on qausi-isometrics (sorry if misspelled). Basically its like a 1 minute rep. For instance, an extremely slow push up. You could do 30 seconds up then 30 seconds down, that’s one rep. You probably already know all that but its another overlooked form of training thats brutal and I’d love to see a video about them.

  • I was doing this,without knowing its name.. I started it cause it was difficult to do it,so I thought it will also be beneficial. Some of Ur videos r really helpful since I workout at home in a tight space..

  • Bro I developed this, flexing your hands towards one another over 20 years ago and I showed it to a few guys it was my own personal technique that nobody else was doing I’m curious to where got the idea for this? I look forward to hearing from you and yes it works big time hit me up bye for now Ken

  • Thanks Jeff! Always waiting for Bodyweight Wednesday… I’ve already tried this in the moment I saw it and it was devastating! LOL

    I have a question for you… have you ever train a person with BPPV?

  • Brother,can you please suggest how many reps and sets do we have to do to build biceps? And plz suggest a better diet routine for build bulk muscle.

  • i have a problem. i have six pack abs but problem is that my chest is lower than my abs.i donot have any archer back.tell me the soution

  • As someone like me who weighs a pathetic 48 kg will i be able to get a ripped body with tons of muscles while also tipping my weight to ideally 70kg with these bodyweight workouts.Granted i would rather go to the gym but i cant afford a gym membership anyway so it would be massively appreciated if you can share your pearls of wisdom on the subject matter.Thank you jeff.

  • I feel like calisthenics should be the first step for everybody to build a good foundation and get some strength in smaller muscles before blowing out a joint trying to bench etc, the light weight will still be sufficient, and for heavier people youre still getting some good resistance but youll have to start adding weights or hitting the gym sooner or later lol

  • Two, when u say 210 reps per week but only 70 reps per day how can we do that if we only train two times per week each body part? Cause that’s only 140

  • after watching this again, a few years later, this is still 1 of the most important things, most trainees forget, even the most experienced and less experienced (like me:-)). mind muscle tension and connection. don’t need the weights anymore.

  • Boah this feels like having a conversation instead of like sitting in class. I wanna get raped by bitches tho, so I subscribed hehee

  • My friend laughed when I told them I was gonna lose weight with just implementing Custokebon Secrets, but after I showed them great results after I used it they’re begging me to share with them about it. Of course I won’t tell them the detail about this diet plan, lol

  • hello Sir,i am following u for a long time and have strong believe in u,i want to get stronger as hell so that i can throw deadly powered punch,i am Not a bad guy i just wanna help others,i need it for protecting My loved once,i am doing strength training for an year,but u did arm wrestling With a guy and i was lost easily and my wrist is paining bad,i want To be strong i don’t care about muscles,sure i wanna lean and strong but strength is far more important fr me,please help in This case.

  • That juxtaposition of his super chilled, well mannered, all around top bloke vibe next to him saying stuff like; “Wide grip pull ups will give you a sexy V-taper and make the hoes wanna r*pe ya.”
    Its hilarious and I love it.

  • Great video. People don’t push themselves on the bodyweight exercises. If all we do is 4×10 pullups along with 4×15 dips, how in the hell are we going to build muscle? Try 10×10 pullups, 10×15 dips. When that’s easy, combine with supersetting. Then add weight, nothing wrong with that. It’s not cheating, you are still progressing and meaning bodyweight now gets easy and you need to challenge yourself more with additional weight. It’s still the same pullup and dip exercise, just with you being much stronger for your body.

  • Genuinely the only fitness youtuber I’ve found that gives legitimate advice, solid work my man and you are shredded to the bone bro!

  • The title made me feel I was doing the wrong thing then I read the comments and it pretty much explained your vid. Now I’m about to watch lol. Otherwise I would’ve skipped past it If the comments didn’t defend the vid content lol.

  • Wow, man! What a wonderful exersises! Thank you! I know you may not see that, but still… That’s amazing for a start of your journey of explosiveness

  • Summer bodies are made in winter. I am making mine, what about you? You can create training and meal plan yourself, or you can save your time and visit NextLevelDiet. You chose

  • +pigmie, Please make a tutorial on how to breath during exercises..I mean when to inhale and holding the breath and when to exhale…

  • Why dont go longer than 6 seconds? Like you can work endurance and speed, if you do less than 6 seconds you only work speed right?

  • i am an endomorph i get fat very easily i have been doing body weight training for last 3 months and eating in a caloric deficit i have gained some muscle and lost weight but what about getting a better defined muscle

  • First exercise does NOT increase striking speed. Who strikes upward and outward? Fail. Second exercise improves power, not speed. When you use a resistance band or T-band it increase the resistance of the strike and slows it down. Fail. This dude is just naturally fast and quick. These exercises do NOTHING you say they do. What type of coach are you Phil? What degrees or certifications do you hold. Gyms you train at? Hint my friend you want to increase speed go with gravity ASSISTED exercises that mimic the strikes he will use. You are young and will learn. I fought pro before you were born and continue to teach. I have trained at all Hawaii gyms including Technics and Relson’s BJJ. In Las Vegas at damn near every gym. Currently at Syndicate where the S&C Coach is phenomenal. You need to explain to these newbies WHY they are doing a particular exercise. For what specifically in the ring or cage. If it is not functional, it is a waste of time and bullshit. Most of your program is the latter. I could care less if you competed or not. I have never heard of you, so you can’t be significant. Some of the CRAP you have people do is RIDICULOUS. Others like me and along with Benny “the Jet” Urquidez paved the way for guys like you to fight. Remember your roots.

  • Can’t do none of these cause I would probably fuck up my wrist
    I don’t know if I’m doing it wrong or something but my leg is not completely straight during whole movement and my wrist hurts like hell

  • I can’t believe I found this website. Next Level Diet completely changed the way I look at diets. When I started following their diet plan, I realised that diet isn’t something you should be scared of and it can easily fit in your daily routine.

  • well I’m still losing weight to get rid of my belly (almost there:) ), so no I’m definitely not going to eat 500 kcal more than I burn each day. Don’t want to get the weight I worked hard to lose, back.

    Of course I’m working out every second day.

  • You’ve a lot of knowledge but your speeches are too boring. You talk 60% in your videos. I reckon most of the viewers don’t want to know the biomechanics & we’re watching it for your demos. As an avid fan of yours, I request you to reduce your talktime

  • Coach Phil, do you train anyone willing to pay? With me starting this sport late I’m needing a teacher and not just a coach. I have a few thousand saved already as well as my Bacholars of Science degree.. I’m 5’11 147 walk around and ran track in college 2010-2014. Please take this serious and I thank You in advance �� [email protected] gmail.com

  • If you want to increase your speed, hang a piece of paper from a door frame, and punch that. Focus on staying relaxed, and only tensing your bodies muscles when your arm reaches full extension. When you can make the paper produce a loud SNAP with your punches, you are getting fast.

  • Next time don’t use the translation in the video because it blocks the movements you’ve been doing on the floor, so we can’t see the movement you’ve made

  • Thanks for this. I used to work as a Paramedic & I usedbody weight exercises. It’s a good way to get lean muscle mass when one doesn’t have access to weight lifting equipment commonly used in today’s gyms. Pull ups are good to do. Resistance cables work well too. I love going to a weight room but sometimes life gets in the way & you can’t get there. Don’t take the easy way out. Do pullups. Pushups( wide grip, decline, incline,triceps) A set of adjustable dumbells work well too.

  • Hi Jeff, thank you for all your effort and insight on exercise. You really have opened a door i didn’t know existed.
    Can you please consider an other host for you videos than you tube?
    I would be glad if i could avoid seeing their off topic annoying suggestions trying to disorient you.
    Thanks again

  • As I said in a comment elsewhere, I like to do slow moving Tai Chi dynamic isometrics, where I’m doing simple and fluid movements while contracting my entire body.

    I do a lot of dynamic isometric exercises just with the imagination of lifting weights or pull-ups or cables, or like I’m sweeping my arms through sand or water, such that if the resistance were actually there, then I would still be moving through it. Try rowing a boat with your imagination, make the boat really heavy and the oars huge, it’ll wear you out! And it wears out both opposite sides, because your pecs and core etc are resisting your lats and back etc. Or an even better example… Imaginarily row backwards, briefly relax, imaginarily press forward, briefly relax, rinse and repeat. It’s tiring not just because you’re using more muscles, but because those more muscles are using up more oxygen, which means there’s less of it to go around, which means that muscle fatigue sets in more quickly. Gets more of a workout in less time.

    Btw the suspended sit is one of my favs!!!! You can do it even on a bed or couch, and if you gotta suddenly drop, then it’s a cushioned fall lol.

  • Is the title a lie? Or does it mean you can’t build muscle but can maintain and tone muscle. I know I’m 90% thinking the title is a joke but just making sure.

  • gram per pound of body weight? protein plus carbs plus butt load of greens with some fruit(s) through’n in there some where. food yummy food but I love gummy bears, cheese cake, gummy bears, sour stuff, gummy bears, soda, gummy bears, meh

  • Takeout the background music. It distracts from what you’re saying.

    Good information as always man. I get lost in hours of your knowledge. ����

  • It’s now good to exercise every day? I’m still beginner AF. I just worked my way up to 100 pushup, squat and sit up variations. I’ve been trying to do them daily. I found this channel, and just ordered some rings, to change up what I’m doing.

  • People underestimate good and natural(no drugs) bodyweight training.
    Sure you won’t become Jeff Seid without some good cycles but you can still manage an impressive athlete physique.Plus you’ll have great endurance and strength along with good health.

  • I have a hard time working out because i am limited with the types of exercises i can do.

    I have the use of 1 arm…my right arm is deformed, very small and it cannot squeeze or move the wrist. So i can only do 1 arm push ups…and i used to do 300 a day…10 sets of 15 and 15 sets of 10 which added to 300 but my wrist would eventually start to hurt…

    My question is are you able to put together a routine that a person like me can do to work out the upper body…because lower body i have no problems… But i can do dips or pull ups…i can’t do diamond pushups so as you can see building my upper body is tough but i know it isn’t impossible…

    Can you help? Any suggestions would be greatl…hell if a fitbess guru was able to transform my body into a fit muscular specimen i am sure everyone would do as he said without question because my body is difficult to work with i have tied for over 20 years and t 1 point i was looking ok but i could never get my chest bigger or my triceps to grow because of how i couldn’t do exercises that could target certain muscle groups correctly…

    So i am down to be an experiment if you want to give it a try and help me sculpt my physique..

  • Question. Do you have an umbilical hernia? Or just an outtie belly button? I’m just wondering because I was born with an umbilical hernia and idk if it’ll lead to issues in the future if I keep doing body weight training. Please someone lmk:)

  • Hey, as a combat athlete, i’m looking to gain power and strength without fatiguing faster. If I do explosive, fast twitch workouts, I understand that especially with the right diet I’ll get bigger, stronger, more powerful etc, but will I also fatigue faster. It’s important for me that I am still able to perform after considerable time on the mat, in the cage, etc. How can I do both? Thanks

  • Just a question. If you add weights to the pushups/pullups/pistol squats would it make your progression faster/easier? I don’t have access to a gym so I’ve been doing weighted pistols(around 15-20kg), I gave up on pushups because they were too easy and pullups because they were too hard haha. I want to gain both size and strength

  • You dont have to be in a caloric surplus you can be 100 in deficit take your protein and still be gaining muscle while losing fat very slowly

  • Hey there love your videos. My backpain is gone thanks to you and your vids. Lots of respect.

    Just on a plus note how many should I do. Very disappointed my gym has shut down because of Covid 19. I want to give this ago:) NOT GIVING UP

  • Aight guys I’m tryna start learning the basics of calisthenics. I’m like real underweight 5’9” and 117lbs at age 22. I’m starting calisthenics bc I’m trying to improve my body confidence bc I’ve had/having real problems w depression bc of my body image. I’m hoping to see some results and probs make a 3month or 6 month later video. I’m starting today wish me luck!

  • Does Custokebon Secrets (do a google search) help me lost a ton of weight? I see many people keep on speaking about this popular weight loss methods.

  • Hi! Thanks a lot for this helpful video. By the way, I notice lots of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (look on google search engine), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you tried Custokebon Secrets? I’ve heard many unbelivable things about it and my cousin lost lots of weight with it, but she refuses to tell me:(

  • But there aren’t many ways to make it more difficult without the rings. He mentioned that one where at 3:32 and 3:52, but does anyone know anything else beyond that?

  • summary:
    40-70 reps/bodypart -> do it 2-3 times a week
    1 exercise should consist of 5-15 reps. Change the workout if it’s outside this range

    this requires some measuring, but if you want to put extra attention about nutrition:
    consume extra 100-300 kcal/day
    consume 2g/kg body weight.

  • When it comes to eating healthy, you have to never fall victim to modern fad diet plans. Extreme diet plans are a risk for your health, especially ones that seriously limit your daily nutritionary intake. While they may generate rapid loss of weight, these kinds of diets will never be a long-term solution for your weight problem. It is best to search Fenoboci Diet Plan on google as it isn’t just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • What is the best way to lost crazy amounts of weight? I read lots of good opinions on the net about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can help you lost crazy amounts of weight. Has any one tested out this popular weight loss secrets?

  • It is a great video, as good as all of your other videos. I think it’s amazing, and trully a real value added, the exercises and the whole explanation. Thanks Jeff!! You are a great professional.

  • Hey Jeff, I’m not sure if you’ve covered this before, but I’ll like to ask this: let’s take a pull up for example. You start with an isometric hold at the bottom, and maintain that same level of tension as you pull yourself up and lower yourself down, throughout the whole motion. The speed of pulling and lowering will obviously be slow from focusing on maintaining the isometric hold tension, but is there any effect on the muscle by doing exercises this way?

  • I think part of why calisthenics is so popular among skinny people (myself included) is that there’s the perceived embarrassment of being really weak at the gym. Having something you can work on at home is a bit more comfortable for people. The other is that it’s perceived that you’re less likely to hurt yourself with calisthenics as a beginner than other workout methods, which appeals to people who haven’t really trained in their life before. The third is that there’s a very low investment for entry. You probably have everything you need to get started and see if it’s something you will actually stick to just sitting around the house.

  • I read many people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets. But Im uncertain if it is good. Have you ever tried this popular weight loss methods?
