An inexpensive way to maintain your physique
Calisthenics or bodyweight exercises are great for people that don't have equipment at home to workout with. These exercises should not be the focus of your workout plan but more to supplement your weight lifting workout. Bodyweight may be too much weight to use for some which makes it hard for some to complete these exercises. If this is the case, we recommend you purchase exercise bands.
