Let’s talk about the products. Belly roller is a roll for the abdomen. Based always in the original form, is an easy way to define the muscles. The two rings are made of birch, and the rod of maple. As one part as the other, they have the brass detail, which improves the aesthetic and the function.
The push-ups, follows the harmony of belly roller. With the base completely rounded for a good support of the body, to not imbalance the corporal structure. And the straight bars for a good support while the push-ups are made. They are thought to not force the wrist and the forearm.
On the other hand, the Kenko weights are the most simple structurally. They are two completely cylinders and its available in four sizes. The weights are of 0,5 – 1 – 1,5 – 2kg. This weights are fill with an iron core, with the coating of maple wood, and this can be natural or dyed, so you can put colours on. It has too, the brass ring to jointly the collection.
