Calisthenics is a form of exercise that uses body weight movements to build strength, flexibility, and endurance. It typically involves exercises like push-ups, pull-ups, squats, and lunges, as well as more advanced movements like muscle-ups and handstands.
One of the benefits of calisthenics is that it can be done anywhere, without the need for equipment or a gym membership. It is also a great way to improve overall fitness and athleticism, as it focuses on functional movements that translate to real-life activities.
If you are interested in learning more about calisthenics, or need help with specific movements like the muscle-up or straddle-planche, check out Calisthenics Club Berkeley's website.
