Is your life such that you do not have time for regular gym exercises, you cannot spare yourself time to join a fitness club, but you cannot imagine your life without training? Then the best solution is a multifunctional device that will be perfect at home and can replace the entire gym. The equipment includes a gymnastic wall bar, a dip bar with armrests and backrests, a pull-up bar with handles, and a training bench. This versatile “gym” allows you to perform a variety of exercises for all muscle groups. It is enough, for example, to change the position of the bar, and it will serve as a chuck or barbell holder. The bench is double-sided, which means that it is suitable for both abdominal training and dumbbell exercises. What else can we do with the BenchK multifunctional wall bar? We advise you some.
Exercises that can be performed on a gymnastic wall bar – home training
First of all, remember that warming up before exercise is the most important introductory part when practicing your workouts. A proper warm-up will reduce the likelihood of injury. If you want your exercise to bring better results – do not forget about a proper warm-up. You may think that training on a gymnastic wall bar can be boring. After all, most people associate such equipment with the school gym, where the wall bars were not used to their full potential. However, thanks to multifunctional wall bars, you can perform a number of exercises that will strengthen your body, improve condition and shape the figure. A multifunctional wall bar with accessories is the perfect equipment for various workouts and combinations of exercises that stimulate all the muscles of our body. For training, you can additionally use TRX resistance trainers for exercise with your own body weight, resistance bands or a mat.

RAISING THE LEGS IN THE SUPPORT WITH TORSION MOVEMENT
During this exercise, you should follow the same procedure as described above, with the difference that when you lift your legs up with bent knees, you need to twist your lower body – that is, direct your knees first to the left and then to the right, trying to touch the rungs, at the same time keeping the spine from the wall bar.
RAISING THE LEGS AND TURNING IN A HANGING POSITION
Grab the top bar shoulder-width apart and straighten your arms. In this version of the exercise, the legs should hang freely downwards. Being in this position, lift your legs up as close as possible to your chest or chin, while bending them at the knees. We keep our legs elevated for a moment, then lower them to the starting position.
SIT UPS ON THE BENCH
You have to get comfortable on the bench, lock your legs on the rung and put your hands behind your head. Then lift the torso up so that the forehead is as close to the knees as possible, distributing the weight of the body between the abdominal muscles and the back muscles.
KNEE JUMPS WITH A SUSPENSION TRAINER
First, attach the straps properly. We start from the starting position, supporting the arms straightened in the elbows, as for push-ups, with the feet placed in the handles of the straps. Then we make the movement by lifting the hips, while bending the knees, directing them to the chest. At the moment of maximum tense, hold the position for a few seconds and then slowly return to the starting position.
LATERAL HIP RAISING SUPPORTED ON THE ELBOW
We start by lying on the side and supporting the body on the elbow and forearm. Straighten the legs at the knees and connect them, resting them on the second rung from the bottom of the ladder. Then we lift the hips up so that the torso is in line with the legs. We tense the muscles of the abdomen and buttocks, holding this position for a while. We repeat the exercise several times on one side, then lie down on the other side to do it on the other side.
Upper body exercises
DIPS ON THE DIP BAR
It is an exercise involving the upper body strength. To do it, stand in front of the wall bar at a short distance from it, rest your hands on the handles of the dip bar so that the entire weight of your body rests on your hands. One foot is placed steadily on the ground, and the other is placed on it, then we perform the dips, bending our arms at the elbows and bringing the torso closer to the ladders, then straightening and returning to the starting position.
PUMPS AT THE LADDER
An exercise similar to the description above with the difference that without the use of the handrail. We grab the rungs of the ladder with our hands so that the entire weight of the body rests on them, rest both feet firmly on the ground, and then perform push-ups as described above.
For this exercise you will need Resistancestraps attached to the ladder. Stand at a certain distance from the ladder so that the tape is taut. We grab the tape with our hands so that we feel stable. Then, remembering about keeping the spine straight, lower the body down, leave the feet in the same position, and transfer the entire body weight only to the hands and shoulders, and then lift them up, taking the starting position.
BICEPS WITH TRX TRAINER
It is a version of the exercise similar to the one described above, with the difference that we try to keep the body in the same position, using only the strength of the biceps muscle.
TRICEPS WITH THE TRX TRAINER
As in the exercise above, this time we use the strength of the triceps muscle of the shoulder, but we stand with our back to the ladder, grasping the straps with our hands and alternately lowering and lifting the body with the strength of the muscles.
Single-handed rowing paddle with a resistance band
To perform this exercise, kneel with your left leg on the bench, leaning your left hand on the bench, place your other leg firmly on the ground, and grab the resistance band with your right hand. Then, with the strength of the muscles of the hands, we stretch the tape, making a fall, bending the arm resting on the bench in the elbow. After the fall, we return to the starting position. We repeat the exercise several times and then change the side.
Exercises for the muscles of the legs and buttocks
With your back to the ladder, rest the selected leg on the second rung from the bottom. Place the other one firmly on the ground (it should be slightly forward, as in the case of lunges). The weight of the body should be transferred to the front leg by squatting, going as low as possible. Hold for a while and then return to the starting position.
HIP PUSHING DOWN WITH LEGS CLUTCHED ON A LADDER
Lie down on the mat next to the ladder, place your feet at the height of the second rung from the bottom, and place your hands freely along your body. Then we try to push the hips up as high as possible, leaving the shoulder blades “stuck” to the ground.
HIGH SQUIRT WITH THE HELP OF EXERCISE BELTS
We stand in front of the ladder, grasping the straps attached at the height of the chest, our arms are slightly bent. We keep the back and lumbar section straight, tighten the abdominal muscles and buttocks. Then we squat to a position below the right angle, keeping the straps slightly taut, followed by dynamic extension of the knees along with the jump. When descending, the jump should be cushioned by bending the knees, and by directly descending to the squat position, we prepare for the next jump.
SITTING ON ONE FOOT WITH EXERCISE BELTS
We stand in front of the ladder, grasping the straps with both hands so that they are tight. Then we do squats on one leg, trying to maintain balance and working with the muscles of the hands.
STAND ON THE HEAD BY THE LADDER
When doing this exercise, remember to use a mat or gymnastic mattress. You should stand in front of the ladder and place your hands on the ground in front of them at a distance of 20-30 cm. Place the arms at shoulder width, parallel to each other, and straighten the elbows. Then we dynamically bounce off the ground, lifting our hips up and swinging our legs in a scissor movement until the straightened legs rest on the ladder. Hold the weight of the body for a few seconds on the hands and then return to the starting position.
LEG STRETCHING AT LADDER
This exercise can be performed in several variants. In one of them, we stand in front of the ladder at a slight distance from it, keep one leg steadily on the ground, and rest the other leg, straight at the knee, on the ladder rung at such a height as to create a right angle. Then we bend the torso to grasp the rungs with our hands and touch the knee with our forehead. Another option is to perform the same steps while standing sideways to the ladder.
