Before the first training
If you have not already done so, you should have a check-up carried out by your sports or family doctor. If your doctor gives the go-ahead, training with the Get Strong is no longer in the way.
First of all, a few security hints about the Get Strong:
- Do not leave minors unattended
- Do not bounce or bounce
- The risk of injury when hanging on feet or legs is higher
- They must not weigh more than 150 kg with training clothes
Healthy muscle training
With the pull bar from Sportastisch much is possible. A total of 12 different handles are possible. The resulting variation of different pull-ups, which allows training for many muscle parts. This device is particularly suitable for the back, chest, abdomen, upper and arm muscles.
Through the pull-ups, it is possible to build up and strengthen the back muscles in such a way that a lot of back complaints abate or disappear completely. Also the relief of the back during the pull-pull helps with back pain.
The upper and lower arms are trained by pulling upwards. With your legs stretched forward, you can also train your abdomen, chest muscles and thighs.
Exercises with the Get-Strong pull bar
First of all, pursue a realistic goal with easy-to-reach targets, because wild unstructured training can quickly frustrate. Exercise regularly two to three times a week with a rest day in between. Once you have achieved your goal, the training intensity can be increased with weights. However, be aware that your weight plus weights should not exceed 150 kg.
In addition to the classic upper handle, a handle from the bottom of the bar is also possible. This is how you train other muscle groups in your upper arm.
Pull-ups in the upper grip
The hands embrace the bar from above into shoulder width. By this type of pull-up, the muscles in the latissimus, which run obliquely through the muscle, are mainly stressed. These back muscles are part of the stabilizing back muscles. A strong back musculature supports the spine and the intervertebral discs are relieved.
Pull-ups with neutral grip and under-handle
In addition to the classic upper handle, a handle from the bottom of the bar is also possible. This is how you train other muscle groups in the upper arm and the lower parts of the latissimus, which run vertically. In the neutral grip, the outer sides of the pull bar are included. The effect is similar to the Untergriff.
Some of the possible pull-ups:
The wide Brustklimmzug
Wide shoulder handle, the back of the hand to show the body.
The corn-cob-chin (corn cob chin)
this is the body at chin left us right moves before it is re-directed to the center.
He is like the corn-cob only one page is served here and then set the new chin chin ever.
Half the chin
here is not the chin lifted over the bar, but set halfway to new chin.
It is a combination of a normal chin and a belly exercise. The legs are stretched at a 90 degree angle and then a wide chest pull is performed.
These are pull-ups that come especially climbers to Good. They can be performed with normal wide chest cramp.The maximum height is held for three seconds.
The setup lasted a good 20 minutes and was not so easy, although the instructions for the assembly were well understood, although not as detailed as we would have liked. In the construction, the pull bar got already scratches by the assembly. The painted steel is very sensitive.
Fortunately, as soon as the pull bar is hung over the door, you only have to touch the rubberized handles, which are very robust and well-processed. These paddings are also comfortable to use with sweating hands and give a very secure grip.
The Get Strong pull bar by Sportastisch, is ideal for intensive and specific muscle training.
With its multifunctionality and stability, the pull bar was convincing in its entirety. Due to the maximum weight of 5 kg the Sportastisch pull bar is easy to transport and can be used in many places.
The only drops of vermouth are the somewhat complicated and long lasting construction and the fact that the pull bar can only be fixed by drilling, which gives it the security to train safely.
The rod is a great tool if you want to save yourself the way to the gym and still want to get fit.
