How to Train With a Power Twister Bar

...

A Power Twister bar is a piece of exercise equipment composed of two metal rods with molded grips and a metal spring coil between them. It's approximately 27 inches long, weighs about 4 lbs. and is available with various degrees of tension in the spring. The Power Twister bar allows users to exercise their chest muscles, biceps, triceps, wrists, forearms and shoulders by applying pressure to the grips and slowly bending the bar. The bar-bending exercises involve two basic variations.

Exercise 1

Step 1

Place your hands on the grips of the bar with your knuckles facing up. Raise the bar to shoulder height and hold it 1 to 2 inches from your chest.

Step 2

Bend the bar slowly downward until your hands touch in front of your abdomen. Hold your hands together for 2 or 3 seconds.

Step 3

Slowly raise your hands until the bar is straight and in the starting position.

Step 4

Perform one set of 10 to 15 repetitions. Increase the number of sets and repetitions as your strength increases.
