In the below video, I demonstrate two pullup exercises using a door. All you need is a hand towel.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMnWRHim3MM

In my new YouTube video below, I demonstrated some exercises that strengthen the wrists, fingers, knuckles, and grip, in addition to the muscles of the upper body. Allow a realistic time frame for working up to the more difficult exercises. If you have already worked through basic progressions for pushups and pullups, and have good flexibility in your wrists, you're ready for hand specializations.

I have to agree with all of the points made in the below video, as well as the progression. The only exercise I'd add is bodyweight triceps extensions, which utilizes the same movement pattern, but with a deeper range of motion. I include a second video for this exercise.

In the video below, I demonstrate a calisthenics progression for Dragon flag, a technical, difficult, and cool looking movement credited to Bruce Lee. Rocky Balboa also used the Dragon flag as part of training for his fight with Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Dragon flag works most (if not all) of the torso, as well as the hips and glutes. In my opinion, the Dragon flag most difficult bodyweight training exercise for the abdominals that I can think of.

Very straightforward, practical, minimalist workout - which is expected from the progressive calisthenics approach. He quickly touches on the important points, including warming up the mind and body, generating tension, and such. Great and to the point video - check it out! https://youtu.be/MNauLfcPEtw

Think like a ChampionThis month, I have been reading “How Champions Think In Sports and in Life”, by Dr. Bob Rotella, a well-known sports psychologist.  The book explains that a successful life is based on how you perceive yourself.  Wow! If you take a hard look at that factor, it can be an intense review.  But, let’s keep it a bit lighter for the beginning of 2016.
