Calisthenics and mobility training are proven to develop strength and agility without the risk of injury, and with the tips, advice, and exercises provided in this book, anyone can become strong and supple. This practice-oriented guide goes far beyond the dry technical literature on proper strength training. The authors have combined the best strength-training methods with modern mobility training, meaning the reader will become strong through pull-ups, push-ups, and dips while remaining supple with active stretching. With mobility training, there will be no need for painful foam-rolling or dull stretching exercises. Instead, the reader will focus on movement and range of motion. Better mobility means more strength and combining these two aspects of training will lead to the best and fittest version of one’s self. Written by Germany’s first female calisthenics coach, Monique König, and mobility expert and founder of Moving Monkey®, Leon Staege, Calisthenics & Mobility provides the best instruction for redefining the body and shows how everyone can become agile and strong with simple and effective training principles.
Monique König currently works as a freelance calisthenics trainer and trainee teacher at a primary school in Neuss, Germany. She studied elementary school teaching in Erfurt with sport as a minor, with calisthenics for children as her focus, and graduated with a master’s degree in 2017. Since 2016 she has been giving calisthenics workshops.
Leon Staege studied physiotherapy at the Hochschule Fresenius in Cologne in 2016. That same year, Leon founded the online education platform, Moving Monkey®, which addresses the modern and scientifically based methods of mobility training and helps people integrate more movement into their predominantly sedentary everyday lives. Through this platform, Leon also trains numerous athletes so that they are strong, mobile, and pain free long term. He gives workshops on mobility as well.
