Like any workout you do, keeping your form correct throughout the whole routine is important to not only make your workout more efficient but to also prevent injury. Here are the 5 most common calisthenics mistakes which are common especially for those who are new to bodyweight training:

  • Using bad range of motion
  • Using kipping and momentum
  • Not adding eccentric to the movements
  • Using too many exercises and changing the program too often
