I recently discovered these Lebert Equalizer Bars through our Kuel Coach, Risa Lynch. After poking around and researching them, I felt compelled to share them with our Kuel Community.
If you don’t already know, Lebert EQualizer® originally was designed by Marc Lebert for one of his in-home PT clients to help her master pull-ups.
The “EQ” has evolved to be one of the most versatile fitness products on the market today used for bodyweight exercises like dip/pushup/pullups, for calisthenics, as an agility ladder, for stretching and more! The EQ is used by Group Fitness, Personal Training, schools, martial arts programs and is a favorite in bootcamps around the world! – Marc Lebert
The Equalizer Bars come as a set of two, and they look and function a lot like hurdles. The bars are weighted (eight pounds each) and designed to independently support up to 400 pounds. The result is a multifunctional piece of equipment that can be used to perform hundreds of exercises targeting the entire body.
Kuel Coach, Risa Lynch, shows us a few different ways to use the bars in our home gym.
Adding innovative equipment to our workouts can liven the routine and spark our interest in exercise. These bars are the perfect piece of equipment, if you are looking to take body weight workouts to the next level. With so many available exercises, theses bars are a great way to kick-start a dull workout routine. Lightweight, portable, and easy to store, these bars are an easy add-on to your home gym.
Here’s an example workout from SkinnyMS:

How To Do The Tricep Extensions
I am always looking for ways to promote muscle confusion and keep myself curious when it comes to physical exercise. These bars are a reasonable addition to the at home experience. I priced them at around $130. Please note, this is NOT a sponsored post – it is something personal I stumbled across and thought it might be of interest to other Kuel Women.
