Welcome to a gymnastics based calisthenics exercise class! If you've always wanted to train & build strength(insane amount of it) using your bodyweight, we have a beginners class just for you to challenge yourself.
Calisthenics workouts are one of the best ways to build & develop upper body strength. The front lever movement requires a high amount of focus, form, & core strength to pull it off, but when you do, there is nothing quite like the feeling of being able to do them! Joining a class that promotes specific strengthening not only for the upper body, but to include lower body( legs & core) as well brings a complete workout for the body, to avoid injuries, & to strengthen throughout the end range of motion.
A workout that builds on from mobility, flexibility balance, & strength can come easily from bodyweight exercises. With little to no weight/ equipment, the whole body benefits from doing bodyweight exercises than to weight training, just like yoga classes, you improve overall strength, & there is plenty of progression for muscle mass to follow closely. Body weight training programs also encourage the body to go through a full range of motion which can help people with low mobility to improve on joint range, preventing injury & have better carry over to any sport. Practising calisthenics exercises(eg push up, sit ups etc) is just another type of training that
Anyone's fitness journey isn't as complete if you don't practice the basics in movement that either helps them to improve strength, skills(sports specific), & agility using free weights. Training & progressing through classes that employs free weights such as the GAT classes are amazing to have a carry over to many things in life or sporting activities.
Most of calisthenics(street workout) training involves movement like chin ups(pull chest to bar), dips etc. Your program/routine should consist of strengthening the shoulders to avoid injuries to it due to the small socket of the shoulder joint. During the class, you can practise handstands technique & break down your weak points & progress faster. Calisthenics exercises are challenging to the body because you take on a high amounts of stress on the joints if poor form is used. Proper execution of calisthenics is mostly done on the muscles, less on the joints!
