Calisthenics is the art of using your own body weight as resistance to train and develop your physique.
"Calisthenic" is the English synonym for the Italian term "callistenico" or "calisthenic", a qualifying adjective referring to the now well-known training method or system based on free-body gymnastics, or to a specific exercise or workout. The plural term calisthenics is almost always used as an abbreviation for "calisthenics exercises". The etymology of this adjective is probably derived from the combination of the Greek words 'kallos', meaning beauty, and 'sthenos', meaning strength.
In the Anglo-Saxon world, calisthenics refers to: Warm-up movements performed free-body such as alternately throwing the arms up, circling them, performing jumping jacks by alternating arms and legs. The practice of calisthenics was documented in use as early as ancient Greece, for example the armies of Alexander the Great or the Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae.
The Italian championship, in accordance with current regulations, takes place in the renowned Bardolino on 31 July and 1 August. The best Italian athletes in the discipline will compete for the title of Italian champion in the freestyle, endurance and strength categories for men and women.
