This course introduces you to a scientific and evidence-based progression system for two of the most commonly prescribed bodyweight exercises in the industry.

Bodyweight training is a simple but effective training modality that utilises the body's weight in combination with variable resistance and multi-planar movements. In contrast to externally loaded resistance training, bodyweight training maximises relative strength while promoting spatial awareness and gross movement competency.

Learn to progress clients from novice to advanced level planks and push-ups, as well as how to combine these progressions into a cohesive program consistent with a wide range of health and fitness goals.
