The market is full of calisthenics apps. Some of them claim to get you up to a hundred pushups and charge you 2 USD for just that one exercise! Calisthenics Trainer features 8 exercises to give you a full body workout. At the competition's prices that is a 16 USD value. But the value doesn't stop there. Because unlike those other apps which add reps to your workout based on some predefined formula, Calisthenics Trainer bases your next workout's rep count on the last set of the current days workout. If the program is under working you, it will work you hard the next day. If you are already over worked, it will back off and let you build your muscle. After a few workouts it will find the perfect groove for you.
And talk about a workout! Calisthenics Trainer's rep counter is slower than most people do their exercises, packing more muscle building work into smaller rep sets.
Every 30 days days you will be required to take a test for each of the fitness categories to see how many reps you can do. After you finish the test, the app will remind you how many you did on the last test so you can gauge your product.
The app features the following 8 exercises, and includes a help section to help explain how the program works and how to perform each of the exercises. It is highly recommended that you at least read the 'instructions' section of the help screen.
Triceps Push Ups
Chin Ups (palms toward you)
Pull Ups (palms away from you)
Ideally, you should do all 8 exercises at least 3 times a week, but the program doesn't lock you into any given workout schedule. It lets you work out when it is convenient for you.
