Hey there, everyone! It's David here again, your training buddy and the brain behind GoRollBJJ. Today, I want to talk about a crucial aspect of calisthenics: how to measure and track your progress.

Progression is a fundamental part of any training program. However, measuring progress in calisthenics can be a challenge, as it's not always about lifting more weight or running faster. Here are some tips on how to measure and track your progress in calisthenics:

  • Record Your Workouts: Keep a record of your workouts. Write down the exercises you do, the number of repetitions and sets, and how you feel after the workout. This will allow you to see how you're progressing over time. Try to be as detailed as possible in your records, as this will help you identify areas where you're improving and areas where you might need to work harder.

  • Take Photos and Videos: Photos and videos are a great way to track your progress. You can see how your form improves, how your strength increases, and how your body changes over time. Try to take photos and videos from different angles to get a complete view of your progress.

  • Regularly Test Your Strength and Flexibility: Strength and flexibility tests can be a great way to measure your progress. You can do tests like how many push-ups you can do in a minute, how long you can hold a plank, or how much you've improved in a particular stretch. Try to do these tests every month to see how you're progressing.

  • Don't Compare Yourself to Others: Calisthenics is a personal journey. Don't compare yourself to others, compare yourself to yourself. Look at how much you've progressed since you started, not how much more you can do than someone else. Remember, everyone is different and everyone progresses at their own pace.

  • Celebrate Your Achievements: No matter how small the achievement, celebrate it. Every extra push-up, every extra second in the plank, every little progress is a step towards your goal. Don't underestimate the power of celebration to keep you motivated and focused on your goals.

  • Be Patient and Consistent: Progression in calisthenics is not always linear. There will be good days and bad days. The important thing is that you keep pushing and don't give up. Patience and consistency are key in calisthenics.

Remember, progression in calisthenics is not always linear. There will be good days and bad days. The important thing is that you keep pushing and don't give up.
