GR10 HMS are weight lifting chains which can be attached to a barbell to provide a more effective method of increasing muscle strength and speed of repetitions.
The extraordinary effectiveness of chains results from their influence on barbell weight during workout, and thus on how the muscles work. As the barbell is lifted, the chain links are lifted off the floor increasing the weight of the barbell. The resistance reaches its maximum at the highest point of the ascending movement. An exactly opposite situation occurs when the lifter lowers the barbell; the weight gradually decreases as the chain links come down to the floor.
The chains positively influence the physiological processes occurring in the muscles during exercise. This is possible due to the Post-Activation Potentiation (PAP) phenomenon, by which muscular performance is significantly enhanced as a result of prior contractions. In other words, after an initial sub-maximal contraction (of moderate intensity) followed by a short rest period, there appears an increase in power performance. Using chains in weight training also enhances the speed and cadence of repetitions.
The chains are made of high-quality steel which is resistant to environmental degradation. They can be quickly and securely mounted to the barbell with collars and screws. They serve as a perfect addition to a home gym and are designed for everyone who wants to optimize their weight training.
