If there’s one routine that can possibly give you a sense of overall fitness, it’s Calisthenics.
Calisthenics is just a complicated word that means, in its simplest form, “body-weight fitness.”
Most everyone has a fitness goal in mind, and can realistically reach that fitness goal with Calisthenics. Some of these are,
If you can push your body up from the floor with enough force for your hands to leave the floor, you’re a pretty strong individual. The same can be said for pull-ups and squatting (jump squats). I can’t say you won’t be the life of the party at this strange exercise shindig, but I can say you’ll cause a little bit of a ruckus.

With Calisthenics, you will build a tolerance to repetition and maximal effort. You can truly be the master of your body in space. If you can realistically complete a half-hour workout with minimal rest and explosive movements that spike your heart-rate, you’re in pretty great shape.
Now, the most important facet of Calisthenics training is the ability to jump right into any exercise routine and excel at it. You want to be a Strongman (Strongwoman?)? You want to be a powerlifter? Maybe show off in yoga classes? Perhaps run a half-marathon? Then train in Calisthenics. Become the master of your body. It will make any goal you set for your body that much easier to attain.
If I haven’t convinced you of the power of Calisthenics, check out these videos and try telling me these people aren’t strong. I bet you can’t.
