Hello, inspired by the Barstylers of http://vkontakte.ru/club16633290, I wanted to bring their challenge to youtube. This is my video and this is a little challenge to those who work out - reach these qualifications and post a video as a response- this will give you motivation to work out and also someone to beat)) The subtitles are in Russian, because it was originally made for a Russian website.

If this is too easy for you, go ahead and post a video anyway, because as soon as first video is posted, I will post a new one with much harder requirements.

Rules - The body must be visible on the video entirely and video should be of acceptable quality.

This is the order in the video and how everything should be done.


Pull ups - 15 (no kicking, legs must be straight with as least bending as possible and chin MUST go over the bar.)

Dips - 20 (your elbows must bend to at least 90 degrees and also, keep your body as straight as possible - no kicking)

Push ups - 30 (elbows must bend to 90 degrees almost, body straight and chest must go down to about 4 inches off the ground. When going up, you must go up all the way)

Picking up legs to the bar - 6 (must touch the bar with legs and legs must be as straight as possible)

Muscle ups - 2 (make sure there is as least as possible kicking)

leg raises and over the bar - 6 (Do as shown in the video)

Leg raises and over the bar from the back - 1 (as shown in the video also)

90 degree hold under the bar - 3seconds (legs straight and keep your body over the bar)

It doesn't matter how long it takes you to finish all these things, you can do each one separately even if it took you a month - the main thing is that the video must have them all completed.








































this is from the BarStylers... I think that it is very SUBPAR and not even worth doing

I wish I'd seen this years ago!

One thing though; the biceps are hit really hard in front/ back levers, and planche, and the front lever hits the lats really hard too- might be worth putting them next to relevant categories...

Really nice Thread helped me a lot. Would you reccomend to do weight lifting and calisthenics combined or are calisthenics sufficient?

Greetings Benjamin

Front levers are on there, planche should have been Smile. Didn't think back leaver worked your biceps half as much though?

Glad it's helping Smile. as to mixing it up, it really depends on what your aims are. But in terms of general conditioning. It can't harm to mix things up Smile. Plus it can help to work areas that you cannot with your current equipment/space.

I would however, only use free weights, not the machines...

What every you want to.

If you've got the basics down and sorted then really it's up to you to choose where you want to go next. However some of the more advanced moves are aided by others. Eg planche is aided by front/back lever and handstand.

So... what do you want to do next ? Smile

No problem :-) .

What exactly did you want from the supersets? All they are, are multiple exercises done back to back... no rest. You can do it with any pair (eg muscle-ups followed by squats) but it is typical that opposing muscles are used (eg pull-up/dip or frontlever/backlever).

Some more variations,not like dirty 20s,30s,40s,50s.
Something more,like exercises for time :
100push-ups
50pull-ups
in 5min.
Well...you get the idea Smile
