Body Bar: The Gotta-Have Fitness Tool

It is a New Year! Whether you are trying to lose weight, get stronger, feel better or maybe all three, I want to tell you about one of my favorite fitness tools!

I love using body bars of all shapes and sizes. I was first introduced to the Body Bar Flex a couple months ago (which I love), and now I have had another chance to work with Body Bar on their 24 lb bar.

The 24 lb Body Bar is so versatile and can be used in place of clunky, rough weights in almost any exercise. The Body Bar Classic series comes in lots of different sizes to fit your needs, from 3 lbs all the way up to 36 lbs. So, as you get stronger, you can use the heavier bars. I love the 24 lb. bar, because it is nice and challenging for upper body work while still giving you a very effective lower body workout too.

I love to use this bar personally in my own workouts, because it isn't as rough and clunky as weights are. A lot of times when you start to lift heavier weights, they can really do a number on your hands, giving you calluses and sore hands. With the body bar, it is nice and soft and smooth, and it feels like a breeze on your hands.

Let me tell you, the first time I used my 24 lb. Body Bar, I was sweating like no tomorrow. My favorite move with the body bar is the one above - lunge jumps. It is kind of frustrating to do this move with heavy hand weights, but it is so much easier to do it with the Body Bar, since you can rest it on your shoulders. You will feel the effectiveness of this move right away!

I also love using the Body Bar for my personal training clients. It is so versatile and can be used to tone up your whole body and stretch you out when you are done.

So, where can you get your body bar products? From the company who first introduced them to us over 20 years ago - Body Bar. They not only will give you a high quality bar, but they have great free exercise charts and tools you can use to get started. Plus, they have every body bar imaginable, awesome DVDs to get you started, and fantastic customer service!

Body Bar is the company I trust and recommend to all my clients, and I couldn't be happier with them! Let me know if you agree with me that Body Bar is even better than traditional weights. Once you have tried them, let me know what you think and how you love to use yours!
