Calisthenics is essentially resistance training using your body weight — push-ups, lunges, squats, jumping jacks are all examples of calisthenic exercises. Keep reading to learn more about calisthenic workouts and their benefits. What Is a Calisthenic Workout? “Calisthenics is a form of strengthening the body using a series of movements, or flows, that rely on gravity and your bodyweight for the challenge,” says Holly Perkins, BS, CSCS, and author of “Lift to Get Lean.” Calisthenics — which comes from the Greek words meaning “beauty” and “strength” — combines strength-training exercises and gymnastics movements.

You know jump rope workouts get you winded fast, but that they also build muscle in a major way. Yep, one of the benefits of jumping rope is building muscle, says Cody Braun, CPT, assistant manager of fitness at Beachbody. That muscle makes you stronger in and out of the gym and improves your overall health. And, get this, it’s the key to hitting your weight loss goals. Why? Because muscle burns fat. After all, the amount of lean muscle on your frame is one of the biggest factors in setting your basal metabolic rate, or how many calories you burn each and every day — without trying. Research from the University of Nebraska shows that just 12 weeks of regular jump rope workouts improves the body’s balance of lean muscle versus fat tissue.
