Aerobics is usually considered a completely safe and uncomplicated sport. But she also has such directions that completely do not fall under this description, for example, the Super Sculpt system. What it is? The program is a serious strength training, which requires some training and is popular with both women and men. Let's take a closer look at what a “Super Sculpt” is.
The main equipment in power aerobics is all kinds of weights. The most common form of weights that is in any fitness club - dumbbells. The huge dumbbells used in bodybuilding are not suitable here. The weight of a projectile for power aerobics usually does not exceed five kilograms. It is recommended to use special dumbbells with rubber weights. They will protect you from injuries that may occur during intense training.
The second type of weight, which is almost always used in the "Super Sculpt", is a special bar for the pump. Pump is a muscle pumping method that takes light weight, but does a lot of repetition. It is usually used at the end of the main approach for the complete study of muscle fibers. In our case, no one is engaged in a pump, and the choice of just such bars is due to the high intensity of training. A lot of time is spent with the shell, so if it is heavy, nothing will come of it.
The third type of weight training for power aerobics is bodybara. They are often used in the Super Sculpt system. What it is? These are just special weighted sticks that weigh up to five kilograms and are used instead of a barbell. The stick is a metal hollow pipe, clad in plastic that is pleasant to the touch. Bodybars can be used both independently and with pancakes, as a simple bar.
