Product Review: Lebert Equalizer Bars
Simplify your exercise routine, and conquer your fitness goals with the LEBERT EQUALIZER Total Body Strengthener™. The Lebert Equalizer™ is a simple, portable, yet multi-purpose and versatile piece of strength training equipment that works arms, chest, back and core muscles like no other can, using your own body weight as resistance. Created by personal trainer and Taekwondo Black Belt, Marc Lebert, the Equalizer™ is now being used by athletes of all levels and ages, in bootcamps, group fitness, sports conditioning classes, martial arts clubs and home gyms everywhere.
Participants use their own body weight as resistance and decide what level is right for them by “self-spotting”. Self-spotting means the legs can be used to assist the user to perform exercises and/or when they cannot continue an exercise. A simple modification (usually leg placement) can allow for the set to be extended.
With the ability to easily add more repetitions (without having to stop and change a pin in a machine or have someone helping) this product becomes very versatile. This simple versatility allows the user full control over the amount of body-weight used for a given exercise. The result is greater muscle endurance and strength.
The Equalizer™ adds a new dimension to Group Fitness, Sport Conditioning, Personal Training and Home Gyms. The Equalizer™ is great for athletes, martial artists and anyone wanting a simple, yet versatile strength training tool. The Equalizer™is ideal for personal trainers who are always looking for new and innovative tools to keep their client motivated and challenged. The Equalizer™ fits easily into any home gym environment. It is safe, lightweight and easy to store.
Each Equalizer bar weighs 8 pounds and comes in 3 colours – yellow, pink or lime. The dimensions are 28-1/2 inches high by 25 inches wide and it has been tested to support up to 400 pounds of body weight. The Equalizers can easily be stacked together, taking up little storage space.

**Update** October 3rd 2014
I got the bars today and to my amazement they were much more sturdy then I anticipated! These things are heavy and built like a tank! So awesome! Can’t wait to use them! I did a leaning pushup and I thought it would be easy! But it was actually tough!
Lime Green Lebert Equalizer with the Big Boy Legs! An additional 3″ height! And the Lebert Fitness poster in the background. I taped it to the front of my box jump box.

Ok it’s finally starting to get warm out after this horrible winter and it’s time to get back in our gym.
Here is my Wife Nicole using the Lebert Equilizer bars
She said the Equilizer bars are much harder than Lebert makes them look! She has been trying for some time now to do a handstand and so far this is where she is at. I am not going to break my neck, so I am happily using them for dips. I could use them for the underneath pull-ups, but I have a pull-up bar installed in the wall, a set of hoops and a TRX system. Too many options! I do however, love my dips and they are well worth it even if you just want them for dips or you can go crazy like her and try to do all kinds of moves she finds on Instagram lol. Any way you choose to use them just above all, have fun!
