THE Strength, Performance, Fat Loss and Health Tool
Even if I was the inventor of this piece of equipment, I would still never tell you it was the only training tool you will ever need to reach your goals (although I do feel it has the potential to be) Yes, you could only use this tool and excel at superhuman levels but I prefer to look at things in a complementary fashion vs an either-or. What is this tool?
Definitely my favorite piece of equipment and whether you are a newbie or a seasoned vet, the barbell is hands down one of the best tools for hitting all kinds of goals.
Barbell training is a great way to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time. There are a ton of exercises you can do that will hit just about every muscle in your body, from the superficial to the stabilizers. If you move the bar and yourself at a faster pace, you will work your heart muscle and cardiorespiratory system pretty darn effectively too.
Want to be faster, have a firm round booty, jump higher, throw powerful punches, improve your overall confidence, be able to add quality years to your life, not be on a medication timeline, look great nekked from head to toe etcetera? You can by including a variety of barbell exercises like the following:
Angled Barbell Press
I could go on forever on not only the variations of these particular exercises but the countless other exercises and ways to use barbells for any training goal. Maybe these are not fancy new-age moves, (and I could show you some in person if you’d like and have some training behind you) but these basics just freaking work. The entertainment exercises are great for just that as well as for advanced peeps but most just need to hone the basics.
With even just the above exercises you are going to build fat-burning, performance-enhancing muscle mass, and strength from head to toe.
With the above, you will be helping to prevent a whole host of diseases (and while I guess I am not really supposed to say this but you will most certainly treat or fix some you may already have) and other misfortunes that come from NOT training.
More work done in less time with barbell training no matter your goal, your age, or your training background, sounds pretty kick-ass to me!
