With the HAMMER Upright Fit saddle grip, you can straighten your upper body and adopt a straight and healthy posture while sitting on your Cardio Motion BT or Cardio XT9 BT ergometer. In many activities that we do for hours every day, we tilt our upper body forward and our shoulders and neck move towards the chest. When we are driving, looking at our phones or sitting at our desks (often with bad posture), the muscles shorten and tense up, and this can cause pain. The Upright Fit saddle grip promotes an upright posture and prevents you from adopting a stooped position, helping to prevent the pain associated with bad posture.
Our long-standing and qualified personal trainer Halleh explains the technical details and shows you which muscles you can train with which exercises using the Upright Fit.
By using the Upright Fit grip, you will be able to adopt a sitting position during cardio training that is not only an alternative to the normal training posture, but also helps you to actively improve your posture. Grasp the grips on either side of the saddle and pull your shoulder blades back and down, straightening your torso and your spine. Stretching can counteract the tension and bad posture that can arise in everyday life, for example through frequent use of smartphones and tablets.
“Phone neck” is caused by continually lowering the head to look at a smartphone display and leads to pain in the neck and shoulder area. If you are constantly looking at your mobile device, your head is often lowered by 45 degrees. This causes increased strain on your back. It is important to counteract this proactively and release the tension through targeted stretching. With the HAMMER Upright Fit saddle grip, which is suitable for all age groups, you can adopt a posture that you can practise as often as you like during home training, both statically and dynamically, by pulling the shoulders back.
The effective use of the Upright Fit saddle grip opens up your chest and frees up your breathing. This will increase your oxygen supply, which allows new energy to flow through your body, like in yoga. The shoulders and neck are slowly stretched and moved backwards. Tension and incorrect posture caused by everyday life can be released and prevented. This will make you feel liberated and supple.
The Upright Fit saddle grip is the ideal complement to the Cardio Motion and Cardio XT9 BT ergometers, so you can diversify your training and activate muscle groups that are otherwise not trained in a comparable way during cardio training or cycling. The ergonomic design of the saddle grip allows you to integrate even more variety into your training through mobility exercises and yoga poses. Use the Upright Fit for healthy and upright cardio training and counteract neck tension naturally and without painkillers.
