Day 75. Exercise difficulty levels in calisthenics

Because we started this week with a discussion about new exercises, I think that it would be quite logical to make an info-post in which we systemize different popular exercises on muscles groups involved and difficulty level.

As I wrote before for convenience we decided to split all exercises in 2 directions: firstly by complexity, and secondly by the main group of muscles which involved in them. At the end we identified 5 muscle groups: chest, back, abs, legs and arms. And here what we’ve got (approximate classification, it would be cool to get your feedback on it)
