Push-ups is one of the most common calisthenics exercise for building upper body strength. We avoid this basic exercise for the gym fantasy bench presses machines. But this exercise if done correctly will help build upper body and core strength. There also plenty of variations to the push-up, find out different ways to challenge yourself.


The pull-up are one of the ultimate upper-body exercises. As a trainer I have grown to love this exercise, because how it helps build a strong back. Pull-ups works your latissimus dorsi-the biggest muscle group in your upper body. These muscles are critical for good posture. Pull ups is an exercise that will stand the test of time.

Squating is basic human movement. It builds strong legs and core. Too many gym goers go to the squat racks to squat heavy weight, and don’t master their own body weight, making the execution of the exercise bad. Do body squat to help tone and strengthen, don’t worry about adding weight. Body weight squats will do wonders.
