How to develop Strength in Bodyweight training

Many exercises are very difficult especially for beginners in Bodyweight training. Luckily Calisthenics has simple progression models for beginners and elite athletes.[1] Eccentric movements have long been used to provide a low energy solution to Muscle and strength development.[1] The push up, pull up and dip can all be trained with eccentric movements , to build muscle and strength. So beginners can benefit and get into Calisthenics, straight away. Additionally we can use Resistance bands to help provide further support, balance and provide a feedback system to learn how to move the body through various calisthenics movements.
