Good Monday Morning!
Time for a new Pick 3 Series! This time I’m giving you a closer look into a type of training that you might not think is even possible with a SandBell or SteelBell from Hyper Wear… I’m talking about Slick Floor Training!
Did you know your SandBell can be used to slide across a slick surface to help add resistance to an otherwise body-weight-only exercise? Here’s a look at one of my favorite Slick Floor exercises. (Make sure to check back in next week for yet another one.)
The Plank Knee Drive is a great exercise for strength and stability for the general population looking to increase the difficulty of a traditional plank. This exercise is also a favorite of mine to train explosive athletes looking for a more powerful take-off from a 3 or 4 point start position. The heavier the SandBell, the stronger the athlete’s push-off needs to be.
No matter the size or weight of the SandBell, Hyper Wear has created a versatile and durable piece of equipment that slides on multiple surfaces without bunching or tearing over time.
Never Stand Still!
