Sunset on the bench with a barbell
Sunset on the bench with a bar – technique of the exercise:
- Stand straight, holding the bar on your shoulders. Before you should be a small platform or a horizontal bench. This will be your starting position.
- Put your right foot on the bench. Rise to the bench, transferring the weight of the body to the foot, while exhaling, exhale.
- On inhalation, step back slowly with your left foot, dropping to the floor. Attach the right leg, returning to the starting position.
- Repeat with the right foot the required number of repetitions, then do the exercise with your left foot.
Hint: this exercise is an alternative to deadlift with direct legs for those people who can not perform traction because of problems with the lower back.
Variations: like attacks, this exercise can be performed alternately, then right, then left foot. You can also use dumbbells. Beginners can perform an exercise without a bar, using only their own weight.
