Exercises that include gross motor movements such as standing, running, pushing, and more – without any special equipment – is called calisthenics. You might not be aware of the name, but you may have already done some lunges, push-ups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, crunches, squats… and the list goes on.
Calisthenics is often performed rhythmically and it is generally the most common form of physical exercise that people often start with when they want to begin a new healthy lifestyle. It is simple to do since there is no equipment needed, and you can incorporate elements in your environment to change up your calisthenics routine.
