Leverage Bar Training

Edward Aston Leverage Bar Training

The Leverage Bar is one of the truly underrated methods of training. It’s convenient and you don’t need much weight, as the great Edward Aston demonstrates above. There’s maybe ten pounds on the bar but with the leverage–or lack thereof–it probably feels like at least ten times that much, if not more. Plus the keeping the bar level gives an entirely different feel than “normal” weightlifting. Aston referred to this device as the “Un-Barbell” and he did NOT swing it like a mace. Hermann Goerner also did some interesting things with different leverages in his training.
