Choose easier Bodyweight exercise alternatives

Sometimes the assigned exercises in Freeletics Bodyweight workouts can seem intimidating. They can be too intense or advanced for your current fitness level. Here’s an outline of the different versions of each Bodyweight exercise and how they compare in difficulty.

Each row of exercises tests a similar group of muscles, but to different levels of intensity and complexity. Standard versions offer the least level of exertion per repetition, with Advanced providing the most challenging.
