During my research, it was also apparent that there is a vast difference in quality and features between paid programs and free programs. If you are serious about finding a calisthenics program that helps you progress quickly and efficiently, then I highly recommend purchasing a paid program. For those of you unwilling or unable to spend on a program, we have created a list of free calisthenics programs elsewhere.
Calisthenic Movement is not a tailored experience, but the depth of programming and information the team has put into their calisthenics programs are outstanding, making them a top contender in this space. Calisthenic Movement was my #1 recommendation back in 2019, but it still holds strong as one of the best and most popular programs available in 2021.
Both FitnessFAQs (Daniel Vadnal) and Simonster have concentrated their efforts on creating programs that focus on specific skills. These types of programs are best for those who already have a solid calisthenics foundation and wish to work towards an advanced bodyweight skill. They are both masters of their craft and regularly demonstrate this in their high-production quality video content.
I also think that Calisthenic Movement is one of the few that offer a structured program that covers many areas of calisthenics, and has enough content to please both beginners, and more advanced people like myself.
Many of you reading this may have already seen members of the Thenx team, especially if you follow calisthenics athletes on Instagram. The most prolific member of the Thenx team is Chris Heria, though many of the exercises on the app are also demonstrated by Osvaldo Lugones, Stefan Heria, Zay Tiggs and John Oslager. You can spot their Instagram posts from a mile away due to the familiar minimal looking Thenx gym.
Hi Rick thank you for taking the time in putting all this together. I had exactly same doubts you have explained here. You helped me to decide how to start getting into calisthenics in the right way. Thanks a lot! 59ce067264
