WORKOUT:

OVERVIEW:

Barbell training can be a critical training tool to help you increase your workout program effectiveness. Contrary to what you may have seen, the barbell is not just a tool to develop maximum power and strength in elite level exercisers. While you may not have aspirations of winning the power snatch gold medal in the next Olympics, you should become comfortable with the barbell before diving into a complex barbell workout. This workout was developed to help introduce you to barbell training and teach you some important movement patterns to master before you start to increase the load placed on the barbell. Follow along with Sunny Trainer Matt as he coaches you through 5 standard barbell exercises. As you become more familiar with these exercises and your technique improves, you can chose to increase the number of sets and load on the bar to give you a more intense workout. Perform each exercise in the order below.
