For those of you looking for an alternative to dumbbells, a weighted body bar can be a nice addition. They vary in weight size from 8 to upwards of 20 lbs.  I use them for shoulders, arms, lower back, thighs, tush, upper back and chest. You can do it all with one single bar! Storage is a snap, as it stands up in a corner taking up no space at all.  I’ll list just a few of many exercises you can do with this body bar:

  • Bicep Curls
  • Tricep Press
  • Dead lifts for lower back and hamstrings
  • Squats for thighs and tush
  • Chest press (laying down, pressing bar upwards)
  • Rowing for lats
  • Overhead press for shoulders

These are just a few basics you may recognize; I’m happy to show you other exercises that make for great “muscle confusion”!  (Confusion is what your muscles want to keep things fresh and effective.)

Warm regards,
