I’ll be the first one to admit that I usually hate working out at home, but when a super-snowstorm was headed our way in CT last week I really had no choice. Luckily I had received my ActivMotion Bar just a few days before and had yet to give it a try! I’ve seen plenty of bars like this before in the numerous gyms I have been a member at so when receiving this huge package in the mail I wasn’t too excited….that is until I picked it up. This wasn’t like those other weighted bars, The ActivMotion Bar has rolling steel weights inside of it that move with every movement of your own. I picked it up and almost dropped it to the side because I wasn’t expecting it to shift its weight! So what’s so special about that right? Well because it is unstable, you are forced to contract your core muscles at ALL times while using this bar. The science behind it is based on disruptive training which challenges your body by creating an unstable, changing stimulus. Even a simple lunge, or overhead press suddenly became a challenging, intense exercise for me!
Here’s a sneak peek at what my workout looked like- and of course I had to add increased instability by working out outdoors in the snow!
I would highly recommend The ActivMotion Bar to anyone who enjoys working out at home, or for anyone who could always use a backup like I did! For more exercise options and information about this product visit their website here: ActivMotionBar.
