Sometimes the prescribed exercises in Freeletics Bodyweight workouts can seem daunting. They can be too tough when you’re recovering from an injury, or just too intense for your current level of ability. Here’s an outline of the different versions of each Bodyweight exercise and how they compare in difficulty.

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