Happy Tuesday! I hope that you’re all having a great week so far. I’m currently recovering from Rock n Roll San Antonio weekend (my quads are angry with me) but today I wanted to share my experience with the ActivMotion bar. If you want to add variety to your workouts, this piece of workout equipment would be perfect for you!
What is the ActivMotion Bar?
The ActivMotion Bar is a bar that contains rolling steel weights that train your body to maintain balance. In fact, “the active resistance inside ActivMotion bars activates muscles of the core and extremities up to 173% more than standard, static fitness tools!” You can use the bar for a variety of workouts, with the most popular being core workouts.
I found their YouTube channel to be extremely helpful! Through their videos I was able to learn how to use the bar properly and I even did a few of the workouts offered on the channel. I feel like this is a great perk of the product. Ever been to the gym and tried a new machine but had no clue if you were using it properly? Yup, been there, done that! With the ActivMotion Bar videos you not only learn how to use the bar, but you perfect your technique as well.
The ActivMotion Bar also comes in a variety of different weights so you can utilize it for different workouts. The weights of the bars range from 3 lb – 18 lb. I decided to get the 10 lb bar. I figured that was a perfect weight as it was in the middle between their lowest and highest weights. While 10 lb may not seem like a lot, trust me..it is! It’s very challenging using the bar to do core work and any moves on one leg. Using the bar for the past few weeks has definitely helped me with my balance (something that could use improvement for sure) and I’ve used it for a few of my PT exercise workouts. Using the bar while doing hip thrusts and bridges adds a whole new challenge, that’s for sure!
