Strong women series Day 1: how to use the power cage

Healthista’s new Strong Woman series brings you a lesson a day to get you started lifting safely and effectively. Your coach is Nicola Addison, personal trainer of Eqvvs training who trains models Elle Macpherson, Daisy Lowe and Erin O’Connor. Today. it’s all about using the power cage

 

You would have seen these bits of kit in the gym and you probably thought I don’t even know what they are, let alone how to use them to reap the benefits.

The cage literally cages you in, so you use your bar in a safe way ensuring the bar will never travel outwards of this space and you will be perfectly safe within it.

Bar hooks these move up and down the cage to allow you to set your starting point at different heights to pick up your bar and start at a certain height.

Catchers These are at the bottom of the cage and they literally catch the bar, so it doesn’t land on the floor or your feet
