6 Exercises with GRIPR and Suspension Trainers

Today’s workout will use two training tools, Sand Bag (By Escape Fitness) and Suspension Trainers. These training tools when combined will give a full body workout. We will use body weight exercises paired with Sand Bag and Suspension Trainer. The workout will give your clients an excellent core training and strength training.

Sand Bags

Sand Bags are a new training tool by Escape Fitness. The unstable load makes users work harder and activates the stabilising muscles throughout the whole body. This bag is tough too – the robust material makes this the ideal tool for indoor and outdoor bootcamps. A unique feature of the Sandbag is the reinforced handles, while the number of handle positions offers true versatility. It comes pre-filled, so it’s ready for use immediately.

Extra tough –
our Sandbags feature superior design, double stitched, reinforced grab handles which allow the bag to be lifted, thrown and caught with one or two hands.

User friendly –
weight is created by steel sand granules to generate a smooth shift of weight rather than a sudden thud.

Multiple handle positions add new variety to fundamental lifting patterns. As well as throwing, our bags can be placed across the shoulders or chest for more challenging squats and jumps.

Suspension Trainers:

These are functional training exercises using a suspension trainer, Suspension Exercises work really well at encouraging a natural tension in a clients core. This tension then helps with everything from sports performance to core strength. Each of our suspension exercises were built specifically for different muscle groups or motions that help our clients improve physically or through the development of movement skills. The exercises can be focused on the core, whole body, legs and upper body. Each one can hit strength, power, stability or flexibility too.

Workout: 60 second intervals, 20 second rest between exercises, repeat 4 times
