There are many ways of doing strength training: interval running, sprints, weight lifting, push ups, pull ups, planks. The list goes on. Bar exercises for strength training allow you to work on your upper body. So if you are a runner or cyclist, it’s likely that your arms and trunk muscles are not the strongest and endurant part of your body. That’s definitely my case: I can only do so many push ups before getting tired. But I can run a marathon. I can only swim so far. But I can ride for an entire day. So every now and then, I spend a few minutes doing strength training.
The notion of randomness with bar exercises for strength training
I like randomness and believe it to be necessary to the human body and mind. We would not be alive in a world that is completely certain or predictable. Likewise, varying exercises based on how we feel and what we want to work on makes it more fun and more useful. These exercises can be done in any order, with the amount of intensity that suits your level and interest.
One word of caution: only attempt the upside down flips after you’ve familiarized yourself with basic bar exercises. Make sure you have enough strength, especially hand grip, and balance to not hurt yourself. If you practice these on a regular basis you’ll make steady progress.
