Exercises that use only your body weight as resistance don't require any special equipment. This type of workout is a fantastic method to increase strength, improve flexibility, and boost fitness.
Calisthenics is a type of bodyweight training that emphasizes using simple, natural movements to engage several muscle groups simultaneously. Push-Ups, Squats, and Pull-Ups are exercises that you do intensely to increase strength, coordination, and endurance.
Push-Ups are a well-known calisthenics exercise that includes pushing your body up from a prone posture, targeting the chest, triceps, and shoulders. You can target particular muscle groups or make the exercise more challenging with Push-Up variations.
Another essential calisthenics exercise is Squats, which work your glutes, and legs. For this exercise, you sit back as if in a chair, then push back to the starting position.
You do Pull-Ups by hanging from a bar or other substantial object and pulling yourself up to the bar. This works your back, arms, and grip strength. You can change the difficulty level by altering grip widths or performing Chin-Ups involving a palms-facing position.
The plank is a bodyweight exercise that focuses on the core, including the back, and abdomen muscles. You hold a position similar to a push-up, but without movement, for an extended time to do a plank.
Bodyweight workouts are practical because you can do them anywhere. They are also easily adaptable to varying difficulty levels, making them suitable for individuals of all fitness abilities.
