“Training with Intent” ; by Professor Ted Stickel, Black Belt Instructor, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; Katy, Texas
I have been using the VersusFit Suspension training straps and have found them to be the most effective total body performance conditioning system I have ever used. Like everyone else, I have trained extensively with free weights during my lifetime and find VersusFit suspension training to offer far greater core strength, total body power, flexibility, balance and stability conditioning. This method of conditioning meets the requirements of what I call the “Four Pillars of Fitness”: cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength, muscle endurance, and flexibility. In my profession of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, strength and flexibility are very important for competition and self defense events. The VersusFit suspension straps improve strength and leverage in a large range of angles; this is crucial to optimum performance in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA, and most other sporting events. I use and recommend the use of VersusFit suspension training straps to all people who want to improve their overall fitness level and manage body weight. A great amount of calories are burned while working out with suspension straps versus free weights, and especially weight machines, because most of the body’s muscle groups are used during each exercise. The VersusFit suspension straps are very heavy duty and are probably the most durable suspension gear on the market. VersusFit suspension straps are certainly built with durability to last in our rugged MMA and self defense training environment.
