Barra para flexiones de brazos Klarfit

¿No te pasa muchas veces que quieres hacer ejercicio, pero no encuentras tiempo para ir al gimnasio? ¡Hoy te damos la solución!

Desde Sportize.me te presentamos una forma muy sencilla, barata y eficaz para ponerte en forma sin salir de casa: la barra de flexiones de brazos Klarfit.

Con este simple elemento podrás realizar las famosas dominadas de gimnasio al más puro estilo atleta.

La barra de flexiones se monta fácilmente en el techo y puede soportar hasta 350 kg.

Podemos destacar lo siguiente entre sus características principales:

  • Posee una base de acero ultra sólida.
  • Dispone de dos  elementos para los distintos agarres.
  • Tiene la parte frontal con un asa de plástico y una zona de agarre antideslizante.

En cuanto a los distintos tipos de agarre (ver fotos) podrás realizar varios tipos de flexiones:

- Con las palmas de las manos hacia el frente y el agarre muy abierto. Aquí participan sobretodo los músculos dorsales, en concreto el dorsal ancho (parte alta de la espalda) y como músculos secundarios actúan los bíceps y el deltoides posterior.

- Con las palmas de las manos hacia el frente y al agarre a la altura de los hombros. En esta posición participa el músculo dorsal, pero predominantemente el dorsal largo (parte baja de la espalda). Igualmente, como músculos que también participan en la acción destacamos a los bíceps y el hombro en su parte posterior.

- Con las palmas de las manos enfrentadas agarrando los salientes de la barra. Con esta posición de manos, conseguimos implicar el dorsal largo, así como los bíceps y los antebrazos.

Hay que destacar que ninguna posición es mejor que otra, simplemente son diferentes. Por lo tanto, lo que debemos hacer es variar y trabajar con la barra en todas sus posibilidades.

Un ejemplo de rutina de entrenamiento de nivel muy básico para seguir en casa podría ser realizar una serie de seis repeticiones en cada posición anteriormente citada. Si te cuesta mucho subir al principio puedes pedir que alguien te ayude a intentar llegar con la barbilla a la barra. Es importante aguantar la bajada y descender sin brusquedades. La subida se debe iniciar desde la posición de brazos extendidos. Descansa entre series tres minutos.

Si aun te quedan dudas de la ejecución de las dominadas mira este video:

Find out here everything about  Plank.

If you want to learn more about abdominal exercises similar as Plank visit TIPS section in www.sportize.me just by clicking HERE.

Summarized explanation

In a face-down position, using forearms as support, and toes on floor, hold with an aligned body the indicated time.

Step by step

1-Place body aligned with forearms leaning on the floor.                                          

2-Hold hip suspended in the air with body aligned and without touching floor.  

3-Hold tensing abdomen indicated time.         


Must
Keep straight back and body aligned     
Don´t
Flex the hip (form and angle with body)
Tips
Strongly tense abdominals to maintain position        

Extended Explanation
Place forearms on the floor, under chest.  Keep legs  extended and together.  Lean toes on the floor. Elevate hip so that body weight is in suspension, tense abdominals and hold position motionless the indicated time.

Basic Muscles Explanation

The long and fine abdominal rectus goes vertically  along the abdominal wall, starting in the  pubic bone and ending in the cartilage of the  fifth, sixth and seventh ribs and the breastbone. The two halves are separated by a tendinosus parallel band, crossed by three tendinosus lines that give the characteristical  divisions in a defined middle section.

Muscles & Joint Actions
Abdominals are beneficial in bodybuilding and fitness in general to obtain a strong  and well developed stomach.  Abdominals play an important part in spine flexions and in actions such as in gymnastics, trampoline jumps, wrestling and martial arts. Abdominals are also very useful in some sport activities like pitching and batting in baseball, soccer throw-ins, shot-puts, javeline throwing (golf and boxing).

Sport Uses
The major rectus has its major participation in hip flexions in any of its variations.  But the action of the transversus is not the same, because it has to stabilize the interior of the trunk. We work the transversus in everyday efforts, when we cough or exhale with force.

Bench press with narrow grip on multipower

Find out here everything about Bench press with narrow grip on multipower

If you want to learn more about arms exercises similar as Bench press with narrow grip on multipower visit TIPS section in www.sportize.me just by clicking HERE.

In this article we are going to show you how to make Bench press with narrow grip on multipower:

Bench press with narrow grip on multipower just in 5 seconds: Video

Summarized explanation

In a multipower, lying on the bench with bar on top of chest, elbows at a 90 degree angle and less than shoulder width grip,  extend and flex elbows in a controlled manner

Step by step

1-Lie on bench

2-Hold bar at less than shoulder width  

3- Elbows at 90 degrees  

4- Extend arms without blocking elbows  

5-Lower to starting position in a controlled manner          

Must

Firm wrists          

Don´t

Block raised elbows

Tips

Movement must be fluid and weight has to be appropriate to avoid  excess exertion           

Extended Explanation

In the Multipower, lie on a flat bench with  bar on top of chest. Hold bar with a narrower than shoulder grip, with elbows at 90 degrees.  Extend arms upwards without blocking when we are completely on top. Descend must be controlled.

Basic Muscles Explanation

The most important muscle involved in the arm extension is the triceps brachii muscle, which is a large muscle that covers all of the posterior part of the arm.  Commonly known as the three-headed muscle,  the  triceps brachii is divided in three sections known as internal, middle and exterior heads, inserting in a common tendon  into the forearm bone. When the triceps is well developed the edges of each head are clearly noticeable.

Muscles & Joint Actions

In the elbow extension the superior part of the arm stays relatively immobile and the forearm moves away to achieve the complete extension of the arm. When we use a neutral grip the internal head plays a leading role extending the arm totally. Using a pronate grip (palms down) emphasizes the middle head and a supine grip leads to a stronger contraction of the internal head.

Sport Uses

The development of the triceps is very important for all the actions that involve extending arms towards the front or elevating them or in impulse actions when the elbows are near or pointing the front. Accordingly, it is crucial for weightlifting and powerlifting,  boxing (straight punch) and in martial arts.  It is used also in gymmastics for floor exercises and bars, in rugby for pushing and in volleyball. Also, in basketball  and other sports that require throwing or hitting above the head.
