- Focus on technique
No-nonsense weight training with tempo
Do you like straightforward weight training with tempo? If so, then Barbell is for you! Here you train to driving music as part of a group using a weights bar with free weights. This works on the stability and strength of your whole body. The leader guides you to find the right technique and motivates you to maximize your capacity. You decide your own level of strain as it’s up to you to choose the weights. Barbell is a great combination of strength and music.
Trying for the first time?
In a normal class you can expect
• warm up
• total body strength with a free weight
• strength training with the bar
• core exercises
• cool down and mobility
We focus on one muscle group at a time, and normally repeat each exercise 3 times (each set with 12-16 repetitions).
Barbell top tips:
1. Start with a heavy bar. Don’t be afraid to put on several weight plates on the bar. We start with the legs and back, the biggest and strongest muscles in the body – they need a challenge!
2. Take off weights. We move onto chest, back and upper body, which usually means we want a lighter bar. The instructor will tell you when to remove weights.
3. Lightest weights closest to the centre. We end the class with biceps, triceps and/or shoulders. At the beginning of the class, when you prepare your bar, put the weights that you want for the arm muscles on first. That way all you need to do during the class is remove weights, instead of swapping and changing them around.
4. Have a go! If you can’t do all the repetitions, that’s no problem, take a break when you need to! If at the end of the song you feel like you could do more, choose heavier weights next time! You know that you have the right weights when you really need the short breaks in between each set.
Barbell is for everyone, and everyone is unique. Do your best and forget the rest!
