Trains supporting muscle structures, arm and shoulder muscles and (depending on the exercise) the abdominal muscles.
Stretching improves the flexibility of all major structures in the body.
Stand in the center of the bar with both arms extended for balance. Hold the support bar with your arms straight for a few seconds to gain balance.
For more of a challenge, try alternately bending and stretching your arms. Keep your upper body straight. Do not bend your elbows more than 90°.
Alternative exercises using the support rails:
- Swing your legs forward and back in a parallel position.
- Alternately pull your left and right leg up. You can also move both knees up and down at the same time.
- Extend your legs forward at a 90-degree angle and hold.
The bars can also be used for various stretching exercises.
