LIFT WEIGHTS MORE NATURALLY! GRAB A BETTER HANDLE!
Most gym equipment only offers straight or flat bars. Our body, however, is not made to move one-size-fits-all weights with only one grip option – at least according to numerous studies and the best coaches on this planet.
From a biomechanical perspective, our arms should move freely while lifting in order to alleviate pressure on your wrists, elbows, and shoulders. This problem can become especially clear with pulling movements like lat pull-downs, pull-ups, deadlifts, and barbell/machine rows because these often have limited grip options – unlike chest or shoulder exercises.
Let’s use dumbbell press as an example: Here, you intuitively choose a range of motion that feels most comfortable on your joints and that squeezes your target muscle most effectively…
“So why not use such a natural range of motion with all exercises?!” is what we thought back in 2017. So far, we have solved this problem for 60,000 clients by offering a handle that adapts to them and not the opposite.
FROM AN IDEA TO 60,000 CLIENTS
Invented, designed, and made in Italy! Back in 2017, Simon Sparber, former gymnast and Angles90 founder, cut off old ski-stick handles and attached them to a pull-up bar. The idea of Angles90 was born right there. Since then, we have built a community of 60,000 athletes and helped them to train more naturally!
DIFFERENT GRIP METHODS
The unique and patented handle design allows for different grip methods. Most clients use the ERGO method for medium to high reps, while using the POWER method for lower reps and high weights.
The most ergonomic method, where the handle fits the form of your hand. With this method, the stronger part of your hand (the middle) does the most work while relieving pressure on the weaker parts. Ideal for 12 – 20+ reps.
Now you are basically gripping half of a gymnastic ring! With this method, the weaker parts of your hand are supported and you can lift heavier.
Instead of your middle finger, put your ring finger through the strap to increase the difficulty of gripping the handle. In this way, your forearms work harder.
This position allows you to perform push exercises at cable machines or with the A90 Sling Trainer. This grip is also used for heavy weights while doing pulling exercises.
