Calisthenics Workout - Benefits & effective exercises

Calisthenics originated in ancient Greece and is still popular today. It is a combination of strength training and endurance training, but you only use your own body weight.

Calisthenics program & exercises

There are tons of different exercises you can pick from to put together your own Calisthenics program. Some common exercises are, for example, push ups, pull ups, lunges, planks and squats, but there are also lots of other exercises, exercises that you may not have heard of before. The Human flagpole exercise is an example. It is one of the most famous street workout exercises that involves grabbing a vertical bar and pulling your whole body up in a straight line with the bar so that you form a 90-degree angle.
