Total Gym Press Bar

The Press Bar attachment permits Military-style press exercises and creates specificity for performing a military press or shoulder press with both wide and narrow ergonomic grips to target the upper back, shoulders and triceps. The Press Bar attaches to the bottom rails of the Total Gym incline trainer providing a unique option for press exercises - inversion. The inverted design allows users to unload their spine when performing press exercises and opens up the shoulder joint to decrease shoulder impingement during the movement.
