t a gym before, but it’s quite a simple fitness tool that might help you a lot. It’s quite easy to use because of your weight will be built into the bar itself with no extra bulky weights necessary.

Personally, we all think that a weighted workout bar is a perfect tool for women, especially for those who are generally intimidated by the idea of laying down the bench to lift weights. The body bar comes in a wide range of weights, from 9 to 12, 15 and 24 pounds. So you need to choose the right bar based on what you intend to do with it.
