How to Use HARISON HR-602 Sit Up Bar

Here is an introduction to the training skills of the HARISON HR-602 sit-up bar.

Before using the sit-up aid for exercise, fix the sit-up aid.

First, turn on the switch on the sit-up aid, then let the suction cup suck the ground, press the sit-up aid firmly to make it completely adsorb the ground, and then turn the switch off.

Exercise 1: Sit-ups

Sit-ups exercise the abdominal muscles, stabilize the core, and stretch the back muscles at the same time, exercise balance and physical coordination.

Bend your knees, hook your instep with the sit-up aid, and pull the elastic band to make your entire back off the ground during sit-ups.

Exercise 2: Seated Rowing with Elbow Open

This action mainly exercises the back muscles.

Sit on the mat with your legs straight, your back straight, your core tightened, your arms straight forward, and your hands holding both ends of the elastic band. The back muscles force the arms to bend the elbows and pull them towards the abdomen. The apex stops slightly, and the back muscles are contracted. Then, the back muscles can be fully extended by actively controlling the speed and returning to the opposite direction.

Exercise 3: Support to Plank

Mainly exercise the balance muscles in the front of the trunk to improve the stability of the trunk.

Put your feet on the sit-up aid, support your elbows directly under your shoulders, keep your head in a neutral position, and keep your ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles in the same straight line. Maintain normal breathing during training frequency.

Exercise 4: Bird Chest

This action mainly exercises the chest muscles.

Kneeling with your back facing the sit-up aid, keep your chest up and your abdomen stable. Pull up the elastic band and straighten your arms, your arms are at the same height as your shoulders, and your chest muscles will pull the handles inward to the front of your chest.

Exercise 5: Supine Leg Rise

The main exercise part of the supine leg lift is the lower abdomen, and the lower abdomen muscles can be fully exercised in the process of straightening the legs.

Lie flat on the mat, hold the sit-up aid with both hands, and keep your upper back, arms, and hands fixed during the movement. Bring your legs together and straighten them, and raise your legs until your thighs are perpendicular to the ground.

Exercise 6: Prone Press Up

The prone stretch is mainly used to train the erector spinae (muscles on both sides of the spine) and the quadratus lumbar muscles of the back muscles.

Lie on your stomach on the mat and fix your ankles on the sit-up aid. Use your hip joints to lift your torso slightly to see the belly.

Exercise 7: Standing Arm Curl

This exercise mainly exercises the biceps of the arm.

Hold the elastic band with your palms up, your hands shoulder-width apart, and your elbows at your sides. Pull up the elastic band, as far as possible to your lower jaw, tighten the biceps at the highest point of the movement, and slowly lower the bar under control until the biceps are fully stretched. During the process, keep the boom stable and not swing back and forth.

How to Protect Knees During Exercising

knee protection

Warm Up

No matter what kind of exercise you are doing, you must warm up. Muscle fibers are elastic, and full warming up before exercise can improve the mechanical characteristics of muscle fibers, make the broken length of muscle fibers longer, and make it less likely to break, and prevent injury to the knee joint. The knee can be slightly warmed when warming up, and also after exercise. Actively stretch and relax the muscles around the knee joint.

Corrective Action Mode

Knee joint pain is mostly due to incorrect posture and movement, causing long-term cartilage wear, excessive friction of the bursa, tearing of ligaments, and meniscus injury. Therefore, the correction of posture and the training of the correct movement pattern are very important.

Strengthen Hips and Legs

If the hips and legs are not strong enough, the knees will have to bear more pressure. Glute push muscle training can enhance knee joint stability and gait stability.

Bring Knee Pads

Friends who have a history of knee injuries or who are heavy can also choose to wear some knee pads to help increase joint stability, avoid abnormal twisting or hyper-extension of the knee joint, and more effectively prevent injuries.

Can You Lose Weight Faster by Exercising on an Empty Stomach?

Has anyone ever suggested you work out on an empty stomach? Doing cardio before or without fueling with food, otherwise known as fasted cardio, is a hot topic in the fitness and nutrition world.

So if people can lose weight faster by exercising on an empty stomach?

Here’s the answer from study:

“Fasting exercise has little effect on the change of body fat content, the key to long-term fat loss is to consume more calories than intake.”

Is the Fasted Cardio Useful or Harmful?

Although fasting exercise does not make much difference in weight loss, it has a greater impact on our body.

To achieve the effect of weight loss, aerobic exercise time needs at least 45 minutes. Exercising on an empty stomach for a long time often leads to fatigue, dizziness, palpitation, and “exercise hypoglycemia”, which is not conducive to ensuring high-quality aerobic exercise. The effect of weight loss can be imagined.

But if you choose fasting exercise, pay attention to a few points:

Fasting exercise should not be too intense, preferably at 50-60% of the maximum exercise intensity;

The time of fasting exercise should not be too long and should be controlled within 1 hour;

Fasting exercise should pay attention to supplement water;

It is best to eat some protein-rich foods after exercise, and pay attention to supplementing carbohydrates and water.

How to Eat Correctly Before Exercise?

It is recommended to eat 1 to 2 hours before exercise and choose a low GI carbohydrate.

Food with low GI value: The so-called “low GI” is simply understood as the effect of a certain food on blood sugar. Low-GI foods will increase blood sugar at a slower rate and decrease steadily, allowing the body to use these sugars slowly, making it less likely to feel hungry. Whole wheat bread, corn and some potatoes are all good choices.

Supplement the appropriate amount of high-quality high-protein food: moderate intake of high-quality protein before exercise can help muscle synthesis.

But remember not to be too full, just eat to 6 minutes full.

Tips: How to Eat after Exercising?

Within 45 minutes after exercise, the body’s metabolism will increase. Appropriate food can repair and grow muscles at maximum speed. Not only is it not easy to gain weight, it also helps to improve basic metabolism and exercise capacity, and will also make fat loss and exercise more efficient in the future.

The first thing after a workout is to drink water to replenish the water that you lost due to sweating during the workout.

You need to add some carbohydrates after exercise. Carbohydrates stimulate the secretion of insulin, and insulin can help muscles synthesize glycogen and promote rapid repair of the body.

Protein supplementation can help muscle repair. Protein is the source of muscle. The essential amino acids provided by protein can repair muscle tissue damaged during exercise and relieve exercise fatigue.

In short, if you want to effectively repair damaged tissues and quickly restore strength after strenuous exercise, then you need to consume carbohydrates and protein within half an hour after exercise.

Useful Suggestions for Choosing Best Elliptical Machine

The elliptical machine can be said to be an aerobic fitness equipment for the general public. There is no limit to the applicable people. You can use it regardless of your age, fat or thin!

In short, it is suitable for all ages, fat and thin.

When facing with many elliptical machines, do you know how to choose the suitable one for yourself?

In this post, we will show you how to choose the best elliptical machine for workout.

Tip 1: Flywheel

The elliptical machine has two designs for everyone to choose from, one is the front flywheel, and the other is the rear flywheel. Many people think that the front flywheel must be better than the rear flywheel, but it is not absolute. Both have their own advantages.

The front flywheel is more difficult in design and production process, and it performs better in stability, safety and sports effects.

The rear flywheel has a relatively simple structure, light weight, small footprint, easy maintenance, and easier movement.

Tip 2: Flywheel Weight

The elliptical machine does not need to rely on the inertia of the flywheel to drive. The weight of the flywheel is mainly to increase the stability of the fuselage.

If the flywheel is too light, there will be a feeling of floating when stepping on it. Although the flywheel with too much weight can increase the stability and user experience of the elliptical machine, its production cost is also high, the price will be more expensive, and the floor space will be larger. many.

For the average person, a weight of 5-8kg is sufficient. It is too light to step on under 5kg, and it cannot achieve the effect of daily exercise.

Most of the flywheels of 8kg-12kg are front flywheels. As a symbol of mid-range elliptical machines, they can satisfy most home users. This kind of elliptical machines can burn fat quickly and is more suitable for most people.

Flywheels above 12kg, the standard for commercial elliptical machines, are generally common in gyms, and of course the sports performance is even better.

Tip 3: Stride

It is the size of one step taken by one person. The stride size is related to the exercise effect.

Large strides are closer to the effect of running, and the amount of exercise is relatively large, which is better for reducing fat.

Small strides have a smaller relative movement range, but you can exercise your body more, which can improve the buttocks and leg lines. If you want a large amount of exercise, you must extend the exercise time to achieve the desired exercise intensity.

Generally, the stride of the elliptical machine is between 30-52cm, or even larger, and you can choose according to your own sports needs.

The stride of an elliptical machine is related to the size of the flywheel. The larger the flywheel, the larger the stride. Generally, the stride of the front flywheel is larger, and the stride of the rear flywheel is smaller.

In addition to the parameters of some main components we need to pay attention to, the overall design, workmanship, painting, appearance and other qualities of the elliptical machine are also important factors that we consider.

Good product design is reasonable, ergonomic, and beautiful in appearance. It is the coexistence of appearance and strength. It is smooth and stable to use, and the more you use it, the more you like it; while the poor quality product is rough in workmanship, and the more you use it, the more awkward it makes people want to exercise.

Why Choose HARISON Elliptical Machine? 

  1. FSR connecting rod structure, better shock absorption effect

The elliptical machine allows the exerciser’s footsteps to run along an elliptical trajectory. During the entire operation, the force feedback from the pedal to the exerciser must be consistent to ensure smooth and comfortable movement.

In order to achieve this goal, the elliptical machine adopts the FSR linkage structure design, which consists of four support arms. During the movement, the upper arm and the lower arm can rotate at the same time. This design allows the body’s force to be evenly distributed throughout the movement track The upper part reduces the stress on the joints and has a good protective effect on the knees.

  • Magnetic control system, the core component of elliptical machine

The magnetic control system on the elliptical machine is the key to achieving the best exercise effect.

Every step taken during exercise will drive the electromagnetic system of the elliptical machine. Pedal movement drives the balance flywheel to run, and the flywheel is connected to a motor to provide resistance for movement. The precision and smoothness of the magnetron resistance determines the movement effect of the elliptical machine.

  • High-precision parts to ensure the durability of the elliptical machine

The parts in the main joint must have sufficient strength and precision to support the high-intensity movement of the elliptical machine. Any wear of any part inside will make the elliptical machine loose. The high-precision and high-strength parts can withstand high-intensity exercises, making the elliptical machine last longer.

  • Simulation testing, the only way to ensure the smooth running of the elliptical machine

Before the elliptical machine leaves the factory, the simulation test is an important indicator to check whether the machine is qualified. During the test, adjust all slope and resistance to ensure the smooth running of the elliptical machine.

Such a rigorous production process can achieve the safe, comfortable and durable performance of the HARISON elliptical machine.
