10 exercises to perform with a weighted bar

Posted on in Industry News, News


Incorporating strength training into your fitness routine is essential for getting in shape and adding muscle definition to your body. Incorporating a couple of strength training sessions can be enough to help you get in shape.

Beyond adding definition to your body, strength training:

  • Burns calories and helps you keep your weight down
  • Increases bone density
  • Strengthens muscles
  • Reduces the risk of joint injuries
  • Increases your ability to take care of yourself

You don’t need a gym membership to start strength training. One of the easiest ways to add weight to your exercise routine is to buy a weighted bar, like our CanDo® WaTE™ bar. The CanDo® WaTE™  bar is different from a barbell you may have seen at the gym. Instead of adding weight to a bar, the bar itself is weighted. Keeping a couple of WaTE™ bars on hand at home allows you to add weight to standard exercises and gives you a tool to perform exercises such as curls and presses.

We recently found this article that describes 10 exercises you can do at home with a WaTE™ bar. For some of these exercises, such as the single arm row and biceps curl, we recommend using one of our Mini™ WaTE™ bars. The Mini™ WaTE™ bar measures 14 inches long, making it ideal for curling and rowing exercises.
