Advantages of

The first thing to note is the fact that the bar is a public sports equipment that can be found not only in the fitness room, but in any yard. Many have a horizontal bar at home, which is very convenient, since you can train at any time of the day and in any weather.

The main advantage of training for the muscles of the press on the horizontal bar is their high efficiency. The fact is that when performing exercises, a significant load is necessary for muscle fibers, including deep muscles of the press, which is impossible with other types of exercises. This is due to the large amplitude of movements and significant burdening. To achieve such a result with the help of the well-known method to pump a press-lifting of the housing from the floor is practically impossible. In addition, classes on the bar allow you to get rid of fat deposits on the buttocks and in the lumbar region.

The effectiveness of training for the press depends not so much on the number of approaches and frequency of classes as on the correctness of the performance of movements. In order to get as close as possible to the desired result, a number of rules should be followed, which are described below.

  • Monitor your breathing during class. Lifting should be performed on exhalation, and lowering on inhalation.
  • It is important to have a reliable grip with the bar. In order not to slip your palms, they can be treated with a special powder.
  • To avoid injury when playing on a horizontal bar, it is recommended that you keep your thumbs below( under the crossbar).
  • When doing press exercises, which require gripping with a horizontal bar, it is recommended to use special straps for fixing the legs.
  • During training, you need to concentrate on a certain group of muscles, controlling their work. When performing exercises in the work must primarily be the muscles of the press, and to a lesser extent - buttocks and thighs. Do not strain your back.
  • Do not swing the body when lifting the legs, otherwise the muscles of the press will have a lower load, since the swing is due to the force of inertia.
  • When practicing vertical climbing in a straight position, try not to relax the muscles of the press after you lower your legs.
  • During the training sessions, you need to perform smoothly, without jerking, otherwise you risk damaging the muscles and ligaments of the hands or back.

Before classes make sure to warm up. To do this, it will be enough to perform the usual exercises and a couple of cardio exercises - a light jog or jumping rope. It is worth noting that with a weak muscular corset of the shoulder girdle, performing exercises will not be easy. Therefore, it is recommended to practice this group of muscles for the beginning.
