The gallbladder concentrates and stores bile as a pear-shaped sac which it can release to help digestion after a fatty meal.
Calisthenics is a form of physical exercise dating back to the times of ancient Greece. The word is derived from the Greek words kalos and sthenos which mean beautiful and strength, respectively. Calisthenics help in improving strength, power, and balance. Sportsmen employ calisthenics to warm up before an event. Calisthenics include various exercises some of which closely resemble gymnastics movements. Principal freehand exercises performed in a calisthenics routine include pullups, pushups, squats, calf raises, crunches, and situps. Figure marches, club swinging, and rod exercises are also performed as part of a calisthenics routine.
