As many of you know, we like to constantly add new products to our lineup in order to bring as many unique exercises to our customers' attention as we possibly can. Often, at this time of year, I post blogs about a new piece of equipment we recently started carrying and explain some exercises that can be performed with it. The product I am going to talk about today is not really new, but we recently realized the true benefits that can be obtained from using it. This product, the Short Length Large Diameter Rope, has many different uses and can functionally train several different muscle groups. In order to best show what types of exercises you can perform with it, I am going to let video clips of the product being used do most of the talking in this blog.
Baseball players in Tulsa, Oklahoma are a lucky group of athletes. Last week I spoke with Scott Glanz, a former professional baseball player who recently opened up a training facility in Tulsa. Just yesterday I had an interesting conversation with another group of coaches from Tulsa at the D-Bat facility in the Broken Arrow community. I began the conversation speaking with Richard Irvin and Danny Bean about their use of the Speed Chains when training baseball athletes who come to their facility. Danny immediately expressed his belief that the Speed Chains are phenomenal training tools but referred me to the D-Bat Tulsa’s strength and conditioning coach to learn more about the specific integration of the Speed Chains.
