Calisthenics / Bodyweight Training
With bodyweight training your body is your weights rack.
What are calisthenics?
Calisthenics are bodyweight moves designed to increase strength, speed, power and agility using only body weight for resistance. Their usage can be traced back to the ancient Greeks. Calisthenics routines can provide very high levels of muscular and cardiovascular fitness, whilst also massively improving balance, agility and coordination at the same time. The main advantages of calisthenics over other forms of training is that they are free, can be done anywhere, even by large groups at once, with no equipment required, to generate full body functional fitness and strength. Calisthenics is all you need to satisfy the 2 fundemental exercise pillars of health and fitness. Strength training and cardio training. Eat well at the same time, and learn the importance of calories towards your goal, and you'll obtain fantastic results from calisthenics.
Calisthenics for strength.
With calisthenics, your body weight is used as your adjustable weights rack for strength training. A built in free adjustable weights rack, that's fully portable, as it goes where ever you go, is accessible at any time, and can be multiplied or reduced by movement and leverage, with the ability to be isolated to virtually any part of the body at will. Calisthenics can also be used alongside and or integrated into other training methods, such as weight training, to augment the results gained and help break plateaus.
Calisthenics for cardio / HIIT.
When performed vigorously enough, such as to the HIIT protocol for instance, calisthenics will also optimally train your cardio vascular system and generate an incredibly high calorie burn in the time worked, as well as generating a high calorie burning 24 hour after burn effect at the same time. And the greatest thing is, you can do it all at home with no equipment needed. This will provide you with both maximum cardio benefit and a fantastic method of helping you to burn fat and tone up efficiently.
The all in one time saving workout.
The ability to receive all these benefits together in one time efficient workout is why calisthenics are the optimal method for generating full body functional strength and agility, and why they are used in training for athletics, dance, gymnastics, the armed forces, law enforcement, sports, and home fitness routines - whether that be for improved strength, agility, cardio, or just to burn some unwanted body fat. Calisthenics combined with HIIT, such as in The 4 Minute Max Outs, covers all these bases highly effectively and in a very short efficient space of time. Calisthenics and HIIT can also be used alongside and or integrated into other training methods to augment the results gained.
Misconceptions of bodyweight training.
Most people think of calisthenics as just the basic press up, squat, and sit up they learnt to perform tamely at school and so wonder how they can really return any kind of results or offer any kind of variety. They also wonder how using just your body weight can be enough to bring your muscles to failure. Well, if this is you, then the simple answer to that is to stop wondering and start doing. By doing The 4 Minute Max Outs, with just under 200 video moves and over 70 Max Outs, you'll very rapidly discover there's a whole lot more to calisthenics than just the basic press up, squat, and sit up, and experience a whole side of exercise and level of intensity that you never realised even existed. It's smart.
