Exercising has evolved in so many ways. Today’s athletes have access to great conditioning and health routines. Some choose sports as their main source of fitness while others like lifting weights. Furthermore, some like to challenge the body in different ways, such as targeting multiple parts at once. The power tower is a piece of equipment that aids in doing such. Here are top tips for using the power tower.
The push-up station is unlike doing the exercise with hands flush on the floor. The elevated arms enable an athlete to go down lower, which stimulates more of the chest muscles. Furthermore, a range of bars allows an athlete to choose from a number of motions varying in difficulty.
Pull Up Station
This is a great aspect of the power tower since it’s commonly inconvenient to do pull ups and chin-ups anywhere other than the gym. Pull ups are great for the arms, back, shoulders, and hand muscles. Actually, it’s recommended that you do exercises that strengthen your grip to supplement power tower activities. A better grip improves balance, performance, and longevity.
Dips are infamous for bulking up one’s arms, especially the triceps. More so, once you get better at balancing on the dip bar, you can begin leaning forward, which makes the exercise more challenging for the chest too. Athletes use dip bars to work abdominal muscles, doing leg lifts with or without weight between the feet.
Crossfit training is popular since it never gets boring and challenges the entire body, contrary to some workout routines that target one area of the body at a time. Read online forums and ask trainers familiar with power towers about suggested routines. Even better, you can tailor your workout to your wishes. More reps will increase a muscle’s form while maintaining or holding a posture can increase the bulk and mass of the muscle.
More Money, More Features
Aside from the quality of associated materials, know that a power tower’s cost reflects how many features are offered, thus how many exercises you can do in totality. However, unless wide variety is a primary reason for getting a tower, then you can rest assured that most models can address basic and most advanced exercises.
One’s hand strength and grip is important in regards to sports and strength training. A range of grips improves performance and makes the hands stronger. Types of grips include the crush, grip, and open crush. Hand grippers, barbell holds, and other products and exercises improve grip.
Some make a distinction between cardio workouts and strength workouts, while any sound exercise intertwines the two. However, you can go about a power tower routine with a higher heart rate in mind. Rather than doing a lot of repetitions, try doing a small number while switching to a new exercise every minute. Do these ‘circuits’ sporadically for more of a cardiovascular challenge.
