Frank Medrano’s Training

Build your upper body with Frank Medrano’s training tips making calisthenics look all too easy.

“This is a good exercise to build your upper body. It works your pectorals, triceps, and anterior deltoid. For this exercise work up to high rep range and then add weight.

If for example someone could only do 12 body weight push-ups, they shouldn’t add weight but instead should work on increasing their rep ranges. Then they should gradually start adding weight with someone standing next to them, pushing down on their back (lightly or hard depending on their strength).”

Thanks to the growing popularity of ‘Street workout,’ Calisthenics is growing in popularity . There are street workout competitions in over 50 counties worldwide, run by organisations such as the World Street Workout & Calisthenics Federation and the World Calisthenics Organisation based in Latvia, Europe and L.A.
