    Building Strong Foundations

    By David (Jacko) Jackson
    Understanding the importance of and being able to develop your foundation strength is key for anyone in calisthenics (and any training for that matter) whether a beginner or advanced.

    In the video below, we take you through a number of foundation exercises with the key coaching points to ensure you are building strong foundations correctly. But first, and very importantly, Tim takes you through the WHY and the HOW from a theoretical point of view, including the exercise science and rationale.

    Hope you enjoy the video to develop your foundation strength and find it helpful. Please share with any friends or training partners you think would benefit from understanding how to build strong foundations better.



    Thanks for watching.

    Tim and Jacko
