If you think that you need to be training in a gym to get a muscular back, think again. There are always other alternative. And this exercise ideas came about when I bought a double decker bed recently. You can train your back muscles and abs using this bed. Interested to find out more?
There are 3 exercises you can do on this bed, but please make sure your bed frame is strong enough for your weight though. I usually do these exercises in the morning but you can just do it according to your own time.
1 – Upper abdominal training
You should know how to train your abs via doing crunches right? But instead of doing crunches on the floor, you can just do it on your bed. You can start off with 50 to 100 repetitions per time and slowly increase the number of times you can do.
2 – Lower abdominal training
For this training, you have to sit right at the edge of the lower deck bed. Lean slightly backwards and lift your legs up. Most important point here is to feel that it is your lower abs that is lifting your legs up. Same as the above exercise. Do about 50 to 100 times per set.
3 – Training your back
Sit in a position whereby you are sitting on the lower deck bed and you will be able to grab the edge of the upper deck bed. Once you have manage to find a comfortable position, pull yourself up so that your face can almost touch the upper deck bed. You should feel the muscles being trained in your arms and your back. The impact will be felt on the upper back muscles mostly.
In any training methods, consistency is important, especially if you want to get a muscular back. Try it out for 1 month and measure the results.
