How to Use Push Up Bars:
Push-up bars are used to work out your upper body. Muscle area's such as the chest, arms and back get a complete workout when you do push ups. Push-up bars were developed to add stabilization to the workout. Keeping a firm grasp on the bars will prevent slippage and wrist pain. Of course, knowing the proper way to use push-up bars is essential if you wish to build strength in your upper body.
- Find an even, flat area to work out. You will not need an exercise mat unless you plan on placing your knees on the ground. Remove all loose debris around the area.
- Place the push-up bars on the ground. They should be shoulder width apart. Test to see that they are positioned correctly by grasping each bar and locking your arms tight. Slowly move over the push-up bars until your shoulders are over the bars. Your hands should be directly below your shoulders, maybe a bit wider for a tougher workout.
- Stretch your legs out behind you. Place your toes on the ground so your feet stand up vertically from the ground. Carefully push up from the push-up bars until your arms are fully extended. Check your form and make sure your back and legs are straight and breath out as your push with your arms. Breath in as you come down.
- Continually push away from the bars, then slowly lower yourself again. Lower yourself until your hands are even with your chest, not your face. Keep your stomach and chest off the floor. Your arms and upper chest will support almost all your weight as you workout. Try doing three repetitions of 15 pushes with the push-up bars.
- Modify the workout by slightly bending your knees and placing them on the ground, instead of keeping your legs straight and locked out behind you. This transfers some of the weight to the knees and legs instead of all the weight bearing on the upper chest, back and arms.
How to Build Biceps With Push Up Bars:
Push-ups are a body weight exercise, meaning that they use the resistance of your body weight to provide the workout. One of the first exercises we learn in school, it's still among the most popular exercises. A traditional push-up exercises the triceps, chest and shoulders. You can work out these muscles even more effectively if you use a push-up bar, which isolates the muscles and allows for a deeper push-up. However, you can use the following three exercises to work on your biceps using the same piece of equipment.
- Sit in a chair with your back straight and your feet flat on the floor. Alternately, you can do this exercises sitting cross-legged or with your legs folded beneath you.
- Grip the bar in the center with both hands. The hands should be positioned palms-down, with the pinkies at the ends of the bar, resting against the bend.
- Press your hands towards each other like you're trying to collapse the push-up bar. You should press as hard as you can throughout the exercise.
