“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.

Bodyweight Training – Angles of Attack

In a world of instantaneous gratification, starting an exercise regimen and then waiting months, or even years, to visually realize the full benefits can be disheartening. And while 30 minutes a day of cardio is touted as the be-all, end-all of healthy living by medical professionals, the truth is it’s not going to give you the body you want. While cardio is excellent for your heart health and your waist line, relying solely on cardio to get that dream body you’ve always wanted is going to fail every single time.

 Enter bodyweight training. Requiring significantly less equipment than traditional weight training, this system allows you to build and lengthen your muscles without keeping a collection of heavy weights or oversized machines in your home gym. And suspension training drastically increases the success rate of bodyweight training by making it possible for you to achieve nearly any angle, thus targeting and working every muscle in your body.

 The suspension training gear offered by VersusFit.com allows you to engage in a strenuous, results-driven workout. With just 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week, you can get the best in bodyweight training and, therefore, the most noticeable results. Our system allows you to utilize gravity to your advantage, varying the intensity of your workout all while building a solid core and targeting muscles throughout the body.

When it comes to a home gym, you’ll find nothing more multi-faceted than the VersusFit gear. The results speak for themselves! VersusFit.com products are available online at www.VersusFit.com.
