For those of you who want to make sure that your upper body gets the proper amount of workout so that ladies at the beach will be impressed when next summer rolls around, you might want to check out alternatives to push ups, bench presses and lifting weights. The $59.95 Isometric Resistance Upper Body Strengthener might be a decent option, where it will offer a muscle-strengthening upper body workout which does not cause any unnecessary strain on your joints. All you need to do is pull or push on the static handlebars while making sure you do not move your upper body joints, and it will be the equivalent of strength-enhancing resistance as free weights, albeit sans the strain or detrimental impact.
This is also touted to be one of the more ideal ways to improve bone density and mitigate muscle loss. Heck, it even comes with a programmable timer and automatically monitors the applied force and displays the readings on the integrated backlit LCD, so that you are able to see just whether you have achieved your goals or not, as well as chart your progress. You can enjoy up to 23 exercises that strengthen and tone the arms, shoulders, chest, and back, and make sure that there is always an extra 9-volt battery on hand.
