Using a barbell while on a cross trainer?
I want to know if there is anything wrong with using a barbell while on a cross trainer??
I read that it is bad for you to use freeweights while doing cardio because of the strain it puts on your shoulder joints, but if using a barbell across my back as if I were to do squats is a bit different... and talk about INTENSITY!
So good or bad? Cheers
Sounds dangerous and I'd wager there's a more efficient way to elicit the adaptation you're hoping to stimulate.
Do you have access to a prowler?
I would think a weight vest would be a safer approach. Trying to hold onto a barbell while on a cardio machine sounds like the set-up for a nasty accident.
I concur, sounds like a good recipe for an emergency room visit. I second the suggestion for a weight vest - you will get the effect you want in a safe fashion.
I've bought a Proform 900 Crosstrainer but it did not come with an instruction manual. How can I get one? Thanks! For the paper-version ($7.95), use this link: ...
