STYLES AND DIRECTIONS
There are attempts to somehow organize the styles, break the workout in directions, taking into account the peculiarity of the execution of the elements. So, conditionally, the following styles can be distinguished:
Ghetto workout – focused on repeating the same exercise frequently. Exercises with a slowdown in time, when the athlete keeps the body in a stance due to muscle strength, also belong to the same style.
Handstand – this style includes all exercises performed in a handstand: push-ups, walking on hands, spichagi (power outputs in a handstand).
Jimbarr is a style originally from Colombia. It combines all the exercises on the horizontal bar: acrobatic sketches, holding the body in an unusual position, stands and candles on the horizontal bar, dismounts, turns and somersaults. In addition to muscle strength, the athlete requires incredible agility and flexibility.
However, it is not possible to clearly distinguish all styles of Street workout. And athletes usually do not dwell on one style, but use elements of all kinds.
