Chris Heria’s Impossible Calisthenics Training

by Gym Slacker

I Trained Like Chris Heria… *Impossible Calisthenics!*

Have you ever seen those mind-bending calisthenics workouts on social media and thought, “There’s no way I could ever do that”? Well, I decided to challenge myself and train like the calisthenics master himself, Chris Heria, to see if I could push my body to its limits and attempt the seemingly impossible.

For those who don’t know, Chris Heria is a renowned calisthenics expert and the founder of the popular fitness app, ThenX. His workout routines are known for their intense and gravity-defying moves, such as one-arm handstands, muscle-ups, and human flags. Needless to say, this was going to be a monumental challenge for me.

I started my training by researching Chris Heria’s workout methods and carefully planning my routine. I wanted to make sure I targeted all the major muscle groups while also incorporating some of those insane moves that Chris is famous for. My goal was not only to build strength but also to improve my overall body control and balance.

After a thorough warm-up, I began my training session with some basic exercises to get my body warmed up and ready for the more challenging moves. I started with push-ups, squats, and core exercises like planks and bicycle crunches. These exercises may seem simple, but trust me, they are essential for building a solid foundation of strength.

Next, it was time to tackle the impossible. I attempted my first-ever muscle-up, a move where you pull yourself up from a hanging position until your chest reaches the bar. This move requires tremendous upper body strength and impeccable technique. It took me several attempts, but eventually, I managed to complete my first muscle-up. The feeling of accomplishment was indescribable.

Emboldened by my success, I moved on to handstand training. Chris Heria is famous for his one-arm handstands, but I decided to start with the basic two-arm handstand. I practiced against a wall for support and slowly built up my strength and balance. I was able to hold a solid handstand for several seconds, which was a major achievement for me.

Throughout my training, I also incorporated exercises like pistol squats, explosive jumps, and bar dips to challenge myself and work different muscle groups. Every session was a combination of fun and intense, pushing me to my limits and beyond.

Training like Chris Heria was not just physically demanding; it also required mental strength and discipline. There were moments when I felt frustrated and doubted my abilities. However, I reminded myself that progress takes time and dedication. I celebrated even the smallest achievements and used them as motivation to keep pushing forward.

After weeks of training, I can proudly say that I managed to perform some of the impossible calisthenics moves. While I’m not quite at Chris Heria’s level yet, I’ve seen incredible progress in my strength, flexibility, and body control. This experience has taught me the importance of setting goals and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone.

If you’re looking to challenge yourself and take your fitness journey to the next level, I highly recommend trying calisthenics training. It’s a fun and effective way to build strength, improve flexibility, and defy gravity. Just remember to start with the basics, focus on proper form, and celebrate every small victory along the way.

So, are you ready to take on the impossible? Grab your workout gear, channel your inner Chris Heria, and let’s defy gravity together!

It’s true about military press

I mean I can’t do it either but I watch a lot of gymnastics videos and you really need to stretch your wrists before those moves. Watching gymnasts how-to press to handstands is your best bet because they’re taught absolute technique.

Can you do a training like Hugh Jackman video??!

Yoshi June 20, 2023 - 4:38 pm

You are ruining your joints and tendons by trying things you can't hold for at least 10 seconds. Rushing into new exersizes ia a common cause of problems under unexperienced gymnasts.

Julie Wilkinson June 20, 2023 - 4:38 pm

Wow ur strong

Cinthya Lechat June 20, 2023 - 4:38 pm

I would loooove for you to train with him!

Sara June 20, 2023 - 4:38 pm

Training calisthenics for years and I still can't planche. It's probably one of the hardest Cali exercises. Resistance bands for your feet and some parallel bars will help. Chris is elite!

Love how you still have the Gymshark Band on. Glad to know I'm not the only one to wait until the next days to remove those from concerts/festivals/etc. 😂
