Race Walking Training

Upper Body Exercises



  1. Sit firmly planted with your back supported.
  2. Place both hands on the machine so that your palms face away from you.
  3. Raise the bar, while exhaling, to just before your elbows lock. 
  4. Lower the bar back to the starting position, inhaling as the bar lowers.

Options:If you do not have access to a machine, use a set of dumbbells to achieve the same workout.

Keep control while raising and lowering the weight.  It’s easy to throw your back out if you lift too much or cheat using your back muscles.
