Without the strain on your wrists that you get with normal press ups you can do more reps and sets. All because your press up bars prevent your wrist joints becoming painful during the performance of standard press ups.
Using your PP plastic press up bars will also provide you with a greater range of motion during core and abs training. It will be easy for you to adjust the position of your press up bars so that you can focus on the development of your shoulders, chest and triceps in a number of different ways.
Your lightweight PP plastic press up bars are strong and are 21cm in length, 12.5cm in height and 14cm wide.
Some great exercises you can perform with your Press Up Bars
Here are three great exercises that you can easily perform with your PP plastic press up bars that will help you develop your arms, shoulders and chest:
Exercises for your Arms
One of the best ways that you can focus on your arm muscles rather than your chest and shoulders is to perform seated dips using your Urban Fitness press up bars. When you perform this exercise correctly you will really work your triceps (the muscles at the back of your arms). Developing your triceps will increase the size of your upper arms.
Your starting position with these press ups is to have your legs extended in front of you. Place your PP plastic push up bars behind your butt on the floor. Place your hands on the press up bars located behind you and keep your elbows bent. Press up and keep your arms straight lifting your body off of the floor and use your feet and hands to support your body weight.
Exercises for your Shoulders
If you really want to focus on your shoulders then use your Ultimate Fitness press up bars to perform handstand press ups. This is a really intense exercise which is very effective and will really help you to reap the benefits of your press up bars.
The starting position for your handstand press ups is to grip your press up bars with your hands and then use a wall to rest your feet against. This will enable you to be pretty close to becoming upside down.
You then need to perform your handstand press ups from this position. You will find this a pretty severe exercise as you are pressing up all the weight of your body through your shoulders and arms. When you get really good at the handstand press ups using your press up bars and a wall you can try to do them without using a wall.
Exercises for your Chest
When you perform the standard press up you will work many areas of your body including your arms, chest and shoulders as well as your abdomen and your core muscles. By using your PP plastic press up bars you can increase the effectiveness of the standard press ups.
This is best achieved by performing elevated press ups by placing your feet on a rest so that your feet are at a higher level than your head. You can use a chair to elevate your feet or you can even elevate your feet using a wall. Place your hands on your PP plastic press up bars and perform the exercise.
With an elevated press up you will increase the amount of work that the muscles that your arms, shoulders and chest have to do. You will not be able to perform too many reps of this elevated press up exercise but it does provide more resistance which will test your chest muscles and increase your overall strength.
There are other great exercises that you can perform with your PP plastic press up bars along with your favorite aerobic equipment. With the increased range of motion you can really focus on specific muscle groups. Be sure to get your PP plastic press up bars today.
