Talking about gymnastics, I’d first like to say that I agree with some statements about it being the “mother of all sports”. Gymnastics is so diverse there are dozens of varying activities within it. As such, the amount of gymnastics equipment that can be in use is rather massive. One of my most popular gymnastic tools are the gymnastics bars, for their massive utility in all-round body development. Namely, on a gymnastic bar you can work out just about anything, your core, back, arms, abs, even the thighs. Of course, this is not exactly gymnastics related, but in order to properly perform kips, swings and other elements, you need a body that is both flexible and strong, with immaculate precision. Now talking about purchasing these items, their price is very arguable depending on the manufacturer and where you live in the world.
If you are purchasing at least one of the many pieces of equipment, you should also get gymnastics mats, as they will provide cushioning and a safety zone in case things go wrong while you exercise. It is extremely important to be safe while practicing gymnastics because we all know just how sever some injuries in this sport can be, resulting even in death. Mats are also good for floor exercises, including not only regular gymnastic workouts but even martial arts as well as strength exercises, giving you additional protection for those moves that you perform on your back. To conclude this, I will say that every person even remotely serious about calisthenics should have the bar and mats installed in one room of their home.
