"Fit Bits"...by April Kassebaum, Certified Personal Trainer
A new feature offering timely fitness advice relevant to your Civic Center workout experience.

The Civic Center recently added a set of FIXED BARBELLS (pictured left) that range in weight from 20 lbs. to 110 lbs.  Try the five fixed barbell exercises below to add a little pizazz to your workouts!
Here's a few training tips when performing these fixed barbell exercises:

1)  Alternate each set between the narrow and wide grips provided on the barbells (see photo left).

2)  Proper lifting form during each exercise should include keeping your elbows straight, maintaining a tight core, and good breathing.

3)  For endurance and definition, perform 3 sets of 30 reps of each exercise.

4)  For mass and power development, perform 3 sets of 10 reps of each exercise.

#1 - Posterior Deltoid Straight Arm Press
Arms behind the back pushing the barbell
away from the body.  Works the 'back' or
posterior of the shoulder.
#2 - Tricep Press
Photo shows the starting position of the exercise.
Elbows at 90 degree angle, pushing the barbell
above your head and extending the arms.  Works
the triceps on the back of your upper arm.

#3 Chest Press
Photo show the starting position of the exercise.  Bring barbell down to your chest and push up for one rep.  Works the chest (pectoral)
muscles as well as the triceps.
#4 Standing Bicep Curl
