The XBAR will make traditional workouts fun again.
Exercising with free weights can be enjoyable and effective. In order to execute a decent workout though, you’re pretty much required to purchase several kettlebells and dumbbells.
Fans of free weight exercises are fans of the XBAR: many have given up their old routines and have made XBAR the integral facet of their daily workouts. With the XBAR, there really isn't much you cannot do. You can hit every muscle group with several variations and resistance.
If you’ve been looking for some ways to incorporate XBAR into your exercise routines, below are some workouts (explained) that you can perform virtually anywhere.
- Holding the XBAR at waist level, place both feet securely on the band.
- Slowly bring the bar up to your shoulders, focusing on your biceps and keeping your elbows at your side.
- Slowly release arms back to starting position.
- Holding the XBAR at waist level, place both feet on the band about shoulder-width apart.
- With your palms facing downward, grab the bar about 10 – 16” apart.
- With your palms facing down and elbows locked to your side, curl the bar upwards to about upper chest height.
- Release slowly back down and repeat.
Note: It’s important to make sure your elbows are stationary (not moving forward or back) because this maximizes the effectiveness of the workout. If you’re having trouble keeping your elbows locked in place, imagine they’re like a hinge; the visualization may help you
- Holding the XBAR at waist level, place your feet on the band about shoulder-width apart.
- Squat down to take the resistance off the band. Pull the bar up over your head and rest it on your shoulders.
- Then while looking forward, stand up straight.
- With your feet placed firmly on the band, squat all the way down to a full squatting position. Then return to standing and repeat again.
- With your XBAR in a similar position and your feet together, step one leg back while descending into a single-knee kneeling position.
- Rise and bring yourself to your initial stance (all in one motion).
Note: When executing a reverse lunge, you want to make sure that your chest is up, you’re never leaning forward, everything is controlled, and that you’re always pushing from the heel on your ascent.
Basic lunges and reverse lunges are simple and easy to do—best of all, you can do them virtually anywhere! And with the XBAR, you add a new and exciting element to an exercise that’s repetitive and boring otherwise.
