ActivMotion Bar Review

I was invited by Sweat Pink and ActivMotion Bar to test out their product and accompanying workout DVD’s.

I will be honest, at first I wasn’t sure how this bar was going to help me get stronger. I was sent the 8 pound bar, so it was not very heavy. However, I quickly learned what makes it different and how it really helps you get in a good workout.  It’s filled with rolling steel weights constantly in motion as you move the bar, so strengthens your core and also helps with balance, which I am terrible at!

The steel weights in the ActivMotion Bar create variable resistance which make you engage and hold steady for the movements. They call this disruptive training. Say what? The website says: it is “training that is based on utilizing the body’s experience of an unstable disruptive training stimulus”.

The ActivMotion Bar comes in five different weight sizes, ranging from 6 to 18 pounds, and also included a set of DVD’s which is what I needed. I had no idea how to do workouts with this thing!

Another great thing is that the bar doesn’t take up a lot of space. I can prop it up in my closet and just pull it and my yoga mat out when I am ready for a workout!

The movement library on the ActivMotion bar website also has some great exercises to try. I haven’t had a chance to try out all of the videos, but as I get better core stability and balance, I will be trying out the rest. Lots of room for growth!
