Calisthenics exercises help you build strength, lose fat and improve your overall health… without the need for a gym membership. Today, I’d like to share with you one of my favorite calisthenic workouts. Some of the most enduring architectural structures in the world are pyramids.  The great pyramids of Giza are more than 4500 years old and still going strong.

In today’s workout, we’re going to channel the power of the pyramids to build a strong and durable body that, though it probably won’t live to be 4500, could keep you happy and active for a long time.

So let’s get to it.


Start the round with 10 push-ups, work all the way through the exercises and finish with 1 pull-up. Rest 10 seconds between sets and 4 minutes between rounds. Do 4 rounds total.
