Here are some of the tools used in this video:
ABC Agility Ladder - The ABC ladder is a 10 yard long , 16" wide ladder with sturdy flat plastic rungs that form 19 squares, each 17" long. (also available as a 5 yard long ladder) Improves agility, balance, and coordination. Great for walking, running, and hopping drills to improving proprioceptive abilities and lower extremity functions.
The Heavy Sled - The Butcher has improved on the traditional sled design. The black powder coat paint means that the grip is better, the hand placement variations allow for different pushes and the weight-bearing bars can be removed for easier storage. Use this to increase your GPP, strength and endurance.
Jungle Gym XT - the most versatile, durable, and economical suspension system out there. Built for punishing commercial use, the Jungle Gym XT is very different from traditional suspension bodyweight systems on the market today. Most notably, it features a 'split design', which allows users to quickly and easily adjust the forces on the body by changing the width of the system. From "V-shaped" suspension (found on traditional suspension systems), to neutral suspension (found in Olympic rings) and now wide-angle suspension, the Jungle Gym XT offers new features and versatility unlike anything the category has seen before.
