Why trainers love the hex bar

Shoulder press

Place the hex bar in a rack at shoulder height and position yourself inside the hexagon. Hold a handle with each hand in front of your shoulders and remove the bar from the rack. Stand with feet hip-width apart and extend your arms, pressing the bar straight overhead. Bend your elbows to return to the starting position and repeat.

Push-up

Place the hex bar on the floor. Get into a push-up position with your hands holding the handles and legs extended behind you, body aligned from head to heels. Bend elbows, lowering chest toward the floor. Extend arms to return to the starting position and repeat.

Deadlift

Squat with feet shoulder-width apart in the center of the hexagon, and hold a handle in each hand with palms facing each other. Stand with arms extended at your sides. Keep back straight as you bend knees and hinge forward from your hips, lowering bar toward the floor. Rise up to the starting position and repeat.

Stiff-legged deadlift

Squat with feet hip-width apart in the center of the hexagon, and hold a handle in each hand with palms facing each other. Stand with arms extended at your sides. Keeping back straight and legs extended, bend forward from hips, lowering bar toward the floor. Rise up to the starting position and repeat.

Split squat

Squat in the center of the hexagon and hold a handle with each hand, palms facing each other. Stand and take a big step back with right foot so feet are a stride’s length apart, rear heel lifted. Keep torso straight as you bend your knees, lowering right knee toward the floor. Rise up to starting position and repeat. Switch sides to complete set.

Bent-over row

Stand with feet hip-width apart in the hexagon and hold a handle with each hand, palms facing each other. Bend knees and hinge forward from hips until back is nearly parallel to the floor, arms extended. Bend elbows straight back, raising bar toward your torso. Extend arms to starting position and repeat.
