One arm Torsion Bar Lateral Raises
Pick a Torsion Bar and place it in one of your hands. Your non lifting hand should be used to grab something steady such as an incline bench press.
Lean towards your lifting arm and away from the hand that is gripping the incline bench as this will allow you to keep your balance.
Stand with a straight torso and have the Torsion Bar by your side at arms length with the palm of the hand facing you. This will be your starting position.
While maintaining the torso stationary (no swinging), lift the Torsion Bar to your side with a slight bend on the elbow and your hand slightly tilted forward as if pouring water in a glass.
Continue to go up until you arm is parallel to the floor.
Exhale as you execute this movement and pause for a second at the top.
Lower the Torsion Bar back down slowly to the starting position as you inhale.
Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
Standing Torsion Bar Front Raises
Adopt a pronated, shoulder-width grip on the Torsion Bar from a standing position.
Allow your arms to hang straight down to mid thigh with the elbows extended.
Your head should face forward, with your shoulders back and your chest up.
Maintain a neutral spine and contract your abs to provide core support.
This will be your starting position.
Initiate the movement by flexing the shoulder, raising the Torsion Bar straight out in front of you.
Keep the elbows extended and the wrist neutral throughout the movement.
Continue the upward movement of the arms until the Torsion Bar is just above shoulder height.
At the top of the motion, pause briefly, and then slowly return to the starting position.
