Callisthenics are essentially bodyweight based exercises designed increase body strength, body fitness, and flexibility. Callisthenics does this through a variety of classic functional movements such as pulling or pushing oneself up, bending, jumping, or swinging, using only one's body weight for resistance; usually conducted in along with stretches. When performed vigorously and with variety, calisthenics can provide the benefits of muscular and aerobic conditioning.
In addition to improving psychomotor skills such as balance, agility and coordination. Many consider calisthenics as "movement through space", meaning you can move freely without any restriction blocking your full strength.
