Bolnuevo Beach will be the first in the Murcia region to have calisthenics sports facilities. The exercise park will have double bars, low bars and complex push-up equipment. Installed in the sand in front of the Erosions this will offer a new option of healthy leisure for neighbours and holidaymakers.
The calisthenics park includes two parallel galvanized steel bars for exercising hamstrings, abdominal muscles, back, shoulders, chest, biceps, triceps and extensions of wrists and fingers. It will also have two low parallel bars, a triple French push-up bar and a tilted abdominal bench with wooden bars and leg restraint bar. The push bar is composed of three posts and three crossbars and the Freestyle complex is made up of two pull-up bars, a Freestyle bar, four poles and a support rail. This construction exercises the biceps, triceps, shoulder, chest and extension of the forearm and fingers. The multiple complex consists of three explosive pull-up bars, a pull-up bar, a sloping monkey bar, two support rails and a Swedish wall.
There will be an informative poster that includes a training routine for users with recommendations for the use of the equipment.
