 Are you looking to shred your upper body? Do you want to develop chiselled iron likemusculature in the chest, shoulders, arms, back and abs? If you¶re like most people outthere, you do. I¶m not talking about ridiculous ³can¶t scratch your own back´ obesity stylemass. I¶m talking about athletic Adonis style mass. By now, if you have read many of myother articles, you are well aware of the importance of working your LEGS to help makethis happen. Hormonal increases due to leg work INDIRECTLY improve your upper body. That being said, I want to take a moment now to focus on five exercises thatDIRECTLY affect the previously mentioned muscle groups. I¶m speaking of the followingtried and tested Upper Body Bodyweight exercises:
Leg RaisesBefore we get too far into how each of these exercises is going to carve up your physique like never before, it is important to mention a couple key concepts. Thesevariations will change the way you look at bodyweight training and the results you getfrom it forever more.
Variation #1:
Each of these can be done with ADDED WEIGHT! Whether you¶re holding a dumbbellbetween your feet, use resistance tubing, have a plate resting on your back or are usinga weight belt and chain, one thing remains the same: increased resistance (weight)means increased results when form and intensity are maintained. The addition of resistance is a superb way to take a typical body weight exercise to a new level andblast your lean muscle growth to levels off the charts.
Variation #2:
ROM (Range of Motion) increase. You may be asking how do I increase ROM? Accomplishing this depends on the exercise. Let¶s take Push-ups for example. During astandard push-up you lower your chest to the floor and press until arms are extended,period. This is an excellent movement, but what if you could drop your chest lower thanhand level and further stretch the Pecs during the movement? Well, I¶ll tell you what thatmeans. Increased ROM when performed correctly means greater muscular activationwhich leads to greater results.
So what do you need to make these variations happen? A collection of Pull-up, Abdominal, Dip, Push-up equipment is necessary. Better yet is a combo that has all of these capabilities in one saving space and money. There are a number of options outthere; but, for the price the POWERTEC Basic Trainer is one of the best in the market.It is sturdy with plenty of functionality. The POWERTEC BASIC TRAINER allows you tocomplete all five of the mentioned exercises while allowing you to work through bothVariations #1 and #2 as discussed for maximum results. Handle placement andadjustability make the ROM optimal and the construction of the Basic Trainer allow it tohandle 400 POUNDS. That means you can work through insanely effective ranges of motion with added weight. For example, if you are 300 pounds you can still strap on 100pounds for added resistance! What is the end result? A better physique.Okay, okay! Let¶s get into what each exercise will do for you.
The Pull-up:
There isn¶t much better for the Lats than the old fashioned Pull-up.Perhaps the only thing better are weightedPull-ups. The overhand wide grip fullyactivates the Lats and develops the Cobralike back; the V-Taper that is. What¶s moreis that the biceps get some good work too.If you work focus on your Range of Motionyou¶ll notice a crazy pump in the rear-deltsafter your sets as well. On the BasicTrainer you can work through an awesomeROM. The movable bar at top allows you topull-up directly on the centerline if you likewithout hitting your head.You can also do a standard pull-up in thenormal arcing patter. Either way, the Latsare greatly stimulated. Beyond that you canstrap on additional weight if you find regular Pull-ups get to be too easy for you. ThePOWERTEC Basic Trainer can handlewhatever weight you throw at it on thisexercise. Let me put it this way, if you aredoing Pull-ups for reps with a total of morethan 400 pounds YOU ARE RIDICULOUS!Once you see the awesome results in your Lats you are surely going to want to do thesame for your Biceps and Mid Back with«
