Bodyweight Exercise


Welcome to our brand-new series featuring calisthenics expert Al Kavaldo. This week, Al demonstrates six of his favorite ab exercises. You need nothing more than a pull up bar to do these - Al does them in a public park. The movements are:



  • Plank
  • Hanging Knee Raise
  • Hanging Leg Raise
  • L-Sit
  • Front Lever
  • Dragon Flag


We advise that you work your way through the list roughly in this order - the last few are not easy! Let us know how you get on.


Every Sunday, we feature a new bodyweight strength training video from calisthenics expert Al Kavadlo. Al is also famous for smiling while performing some of the most difficult bodyweight exercises imaginable!
