Calisthenics is bodyweight training. Any movement that ONLY utilizes your bodyweight can technically be considered calisthenics.
According to the Centers for Disease for Disease Control and Prevention, only 21.7% of adults 18 years of age or older met the Physical Activity Guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity. Most fitness activities tend to lean towards aerobic or anaerobic exercise. Calisthenics, on the other hand, are a balanced combination of both.
So why should you do calisthenics? Here are a few reasons why:
- Become stronger & leaner
- It’s fun!
- No gym membership costs
- No fancy equipment required
- Choose WHEN + WHERE to exercise
If you’re like most fitness beginners, you haven’t worked out in ages. And if you’re the type of person who hates learning complex things, you probably avoid the gym like the plague. The beauty of calisthenics is that it’s straight-forward. But don’t let the ‘easy-to-understand’ movements fool you. Calisthenics will kick your butt.
