Calisthenics Workout Plan

4 minute read Modified:

My personal calisthenics workout plan for strength building and skill development.
Table of Contents
💪🏻 The main goal of this plan is to focus on skill development and strength building by having a holistic push, pull, legs and abs split.
Training Days (each workout is about 1 hour):
4 Day version: Legs + Abs - Rest - Push - Rest - Pull - Rest - Fullbody
5-6 Day version: Push - Pull - Legs + Abs - Rest - Push - Pull - Legs + Abs
Rest between reps: 1:30-2 Minutes
Bonus: Full body workout plan
Have a look at the Progressions library at the bottom of this page.
