25 Weighted Bar Exercises That Are Really Awesome

By performing upper body workout with a weighted bar, you’re gonna elevate your game to a whole new level. With the super sculpting body bar workout, you’ll need a four to ten pound weighted bar and you can easily add awesome muscle mass and definition to your body.

We’re talking about an easy way to add weight to your exercise routine by purchasing a weighted bar. Those bars are pretty much like the barbells you see in the gym. However, they are pretty long, easy to grip, and somewhat heavy. Unlike a barbell where you’ll have to add extra weight, a weighted bar is itself  a weight. The weight of the weighted bar ranges from 3 pounds to about 45 pounds.

If you perform exercises regularly, it is really great to have a mid-range weighted bar (10-20 lbs) enables you to add resistance to basic exercises like squats and lunges. Moreover, the symmetricity of the bar also expands its usage for upper body workout too like biceps curls or triceps extension, shoulder press, chest press etc.. Thus, spending some bucks on some mid-range body bars is definitely going to be beneficial for your fitness journey.
