Enhanced training with bands/straps (SUSPENSION TRAINING) is a globally known training system that allows each trainee to practice using the weight of his own body, performing compound exercises in all directions. In essence it is a type of functional training, which enables three-dimensional movement at all levels and axes of the human body (Mid-sagittal, frontal, transverse). Movements can be vertical, diagonal, oblique, rotating, dynamic or not, which makes the workout with the bands/straps easily applicable to all levels of trainees (from mass to professional athlete training).
Known as drams, with a particular shape which resembles iron cannonballs. They come from the weightlifting world but in the recent years have conquered the fitness area as well. Kettlebells enable the simultaneous activation of several muscle groups when performing each exercise. The exercise schedule may vary depending on the purpose of training.
Strengthening your core benefits your body by stabilizing it, enhancing body posture and spinal alignment. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on strong core muscles. Learn how to increase core muscles strength by combining proper breathing with special body weight exercises.
ELASTIC BAND TRAINING
ELASTIC BANDS / MINI BANDS
The benefits of using elastic bands for strength training are endless. Elastic bands come in various colors and thickness. Each size and color typically correlates with a certain resistance level. They are also the most portable form of fitness equipment.
Originally known as a Swiss ball, Fitball is a specially designed ball used primarily for fitness and athletic training. Working out with Fitball increases abdominal and dorsal strength, balance, body alignment and flexibility.
SEMIBALL / BOSU TRAINING
Semiball is half of an exercise ball mounted on a sturdy flat platform and can be used with either the dome side or the platform side facing up. Semiball provides incredible balance, proprioception and muscle strengthening to beginners and advanced trainees.
These are exercise bags that look like small punching bags, with custom grips in various positions to allow good grab and execution of various strengthening exercises. Powerbags are stuffed with sand, which causes instability to the person during the exercise and helps improve neuromuscular coordination. There are different sizes and weights of powerbags in order to allow training to be adjustable to various strengths and to different levels of trainees.
The training method with ropes (Battling rope training) is a complete training system created and developed by John Brookfield. The main goals of this method are the following:
- Improvement of aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
- Development of muscle strength and muscle endurance.
- Increase of speed, explosiveness and agility.
- Building mental strength, reaching and surpassing your limits.
- Improving muscular fitness.
AGILITY LADDER TRAINING
One of the most widely used athletic training tools is the agility ladder. The focus, instead of agility, is really on proprioception – or body control & coordination. Agility ladder is also a perfect way to make your workout fun.
MEDICINE BALL TRAINING
Medicine balls have different weights and sizes and are used to perform functional throwing, stabilizing and strengthening exercises. Due to their shape, training can be transformed into a game.
