Training bars are a popular type of weighted resistance product. Weighted resistance training means that you’re using external weights, not your own body weight, to improve muscular fitness as you exercise certain muscles or muscle groups. Weighted resistance training helps you maintain muscle mass by increasing your muscular fitness; this can decrease the risk of health conditions like heart disease and high blood pressure. Some users of weighted resistance products also work to achieve better muscle definition and high levels of conditioning. The choice of product for weight resistance training depends on the user’s level of fitness and individual workout goals.
Training bars come in a variety of styles, sizes, and weights for different applications. The SPRI Weighted Bar and Mini SPRI Weighted Bar are used for strength training but can also assist in helping users achieve flexibility and balance. As training progresses successfully, users move up to the next weight as they work towards lean body mass and muscle definition. Because these types of training bars are easy to hold, sometimes even with one hand, they are often used in conjunction with other exercise activities, including yoga and step training.
Traditional barbells help users achieve total body strength conditioning. They’re easy to customize to your unique needs, because you can add (or remove) the weighted plates as you go, depending on where you are in your training—or even how you’re feeling that day. Additional accessories further help you meet your fitness goals; Lifting Hooks help you avoid over-gripping and hand fatigue, a Barbell Pad offers comfort as the weighted bar rests across your upper back and shoulders, and a Triceps Rope attaches to any cable pulley machine to add variety to your training.
Training with weighted resistance products can lead to injury if the user pushes too far too quickly; seek the advice of a professional if you’re not sure how quickly to proceed to the next weight level. The American College of Sports Medicine advises that, once you can comfortably perform with the current weight value for one to two repetitions more than the desired number on two consecutive training sessions, a 2-10% increase in weight can be applied.
