My name is Robert Weeks, and today I'm going to talk about hand position and range of motion. If you notice anywhere in the world all barbells should have a universal lines already niched in them. These lines or circles that are niched in them are for your hand placement. This placement is very important. Because this kind of gives you an idea of where your arms would normally be if you were level on the bar, with the bar having a level weight on there as well. So this gives you a prenotion of where your head should be lined up in the middle. And also gives you an idea of what range of motion you have left to work with. Obviously from that type of position with a barbell in front of you you only have a certain amount of limited range of mobility. So therefore only certain muscles are going to get used. If I don't use this correctly and I go outside these lines or decide to use my own and just judge for myself, I cause myself to actually stop the prevention of injury that they helped already inquire in the system. I'm going to go and kind of make it a lot more dangerous then it needs to be. I could push one arm off too much on the side or I could have one arm not really stable enough. And if you can see the weight could become very dangerous and possibly land on my throat, land on my chest. It can land on somebody else. Or potentially be very fatal. So you are going to want to make sure that the range of motion and the hand placement are always going to be to what the machine requires. Or to the exercise requires as well cause it's very important, we don't want to hurt anything or ourselves. And that's hand position and range of motion in weightlifting. See you next time guys.
