These Bodyweight Exercises Will Take You Beyond Push-Ups.

Working out without equipment is comfortable and can build strength , but when you get bored with push-ups and squats, here are some advanced techniques to try.

Gymnast Ryan Hirst shares some advanced moves for beginners on Greatist. They can still be very difficult to get started, but he gives advice on how to work with them. For example, the “leg scale” (stretching the leg straight at different angles) requires a lot of strength and control. But once you figure that out, you’re on your way to pistol squats and graceful jumps with turns.

Once you master these movements, you can move on to even more impressive skills – for example, after you understand the “double lever” in a photograph, you will have a basis for other movements that require balance on your hands. …

As a bonus, working on these skills will give you a great workout. See the full article for video tutorials and additional tips.
