The nordic solution you have been searching for!
Designed and built by us here at HGG Performance™, the Nordic Bar™ is used for nordic hamstring curls and holds the ankles in place while kneeling on the ground (or a padded bench for comfort), and leaning forward from the knee to extend the hamstring muscles.
One of the major benefits of using the Nordic Bar ™ attached to a fixed post is that it provides the option to tie a resistance band between your chest and the upright post. This means the exercise can FINALLY be scaled and regressed to a beginner level, allowing the exercise to be performed through full range of motion for multiple reps.
As you get stronger you simply reduce the size of the resistance band. This is something not possible on any other piece of equipment and will ensure your Nordic game levels up FAST.
The Nordic Bar™ has been developed with comfort, function and style in mind. Our Nordic Bar™ includes a larger 8mm plate making it extra heavy duty, an anti-slip textured pad for extra stability, and a wider back pad with two of our epic moustache bolts allowing for a bigger bite surface to stop any lateral movement during your exercise.
The adjustable Nordic Bar™ easily fastens on to any frame, gym bar, post or immovable solid object measuring up to 90mm in width. The 48mm round pipe that holds the ankles in place gives a sturdy and reliable support on the achilles and lower leg. The Nordic Bar™ is made from Australian laser cut quality steel and has a matte black finish.
DID YOU KNOW?
The Nordic Hamstring exercise has been shown to decrease the risk of hamstring injury by up to 51% (according to a study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine) by increasing eccentric hamstring strength.
Conventionally, this exercise has been performed on GHDs or as partnered exercise. We created an effective solution for all your hamstring strengthening needs.
HOW TO USE
Slide the Nordic Bar™ around the post you are wanting to attach it and fasten the two HGG moustache bolts up against the post until the clamping pad is tight and the Nordic Bar™ is securely attached. We recommend kneeling on a padded bench for comfort while doing this exercise.
Ensure you are doing this exercise slowly and controlled. Slide your ankles in around the cushions, then extend the hamstring muscles to lean forward (lean forward from the knees, not the hips) until you come low to the floor, then push yourself back up and repeat.
