What does calisthenics mean? And what are the gym tools and instruments for calisthenia, or for calisthenic training? Let's start with the first question: the term calisthenics, in fact, indicates a long series of free body exercises that allow you to improve coordination, strength and body composition. In the Calisthenic world, in fact, one uses one's own body weight "against" oneself, in order to increase pure strength, joint mobility and flexibility. But it does not mean that for calisthenia it is enough to be able to count on your body and nothing else! Instead, it is necessary to have some indispensable tools at hand, so that a complete program can be developed and followed. But what are the fundamental accessories for calisthenics? Well, first of all you need to have for example a pull-up bar, a back and a Dip Station. It is no coincidence that the paradise of those who want to do bodyweight exercises is the Lacertosus Rig: our most complete models, real temples consecrated to calisthenia, have espaliers, dip stations, climbing ropes, rings, bars and much more, all in very stable S355 structural steel structures and with steel poles of the beauty of 80 by 80 millimeters! But that's not all: other tools used in the field of free body exercises are, for example, the Peg boards, coming from the world of climbing.
The most complete rigs tend to be designed to be installed in professional gyms. But not all tools for calisthenia are so expensive and so bulky! The calisthenics enthusiast cannot do without, for example, a climbing rope or, to remain the theme of hanging devices for free body training, of the legendary rings. But when it comes to bodyweight training you can only think of all those gym equipment that can be taken anywhere, without weight or bulk, and which at the same time promise very hard exercises: we are obviously talking about rubber bands! Also in this section dedicated to calisthenics you can find other products related to this world, such as wearable ones, starting from weight jackets, 30, 20 or 5 kilograms (adjustable), to get to training masks, to increase the lung resistance. And you, what accessories for calisthenics do you need?
