Introduction to Calisthenics

Jason Statham Human Flag

I have heard so much about calisthenics and calisthenic workout routines but I don't know what they are...

Calisthenics are bodyweight exercises.It is the art of using your own body weight and qualities of inertia as a means to develop your physique.They originated thousands of years ago in ancient Greece and since then they have been used in athletics, military, law enforcement and in home workout's.
Calisthenic exercises can be done at the comfort of your own house,at the park or at any place that suits you the most.So doing calisthenic exercises can also save you some money from going to the gym.
