DynaBell Spiderman Push-up

Lets step it up a little on our push up game! Try Spiderman pushups using the MoveStrong DynaBell. Assume the pushup position. As you lower your body toward the floor, lift your right foot off the floor, swing your right leg out sideways, and try to touch your knee to your elbow. Reverse the movement, then push your body back to the starting position. Repeat, but on your next repetition, touch your left knee to your left elbow. Continue to alternate back and forth. #MoveoftheDay

Stall Bar Hip Extension

Start with your feet on the floor. Activate your glutes and hamstrings to extend your hips until you are straight up and down. Alternate bending each leg one at a time to challenge your core and stability. It is harder than it looks! This exercise strengthens your hips, arms, hamstrings, and trunk using bodyweight exercises to strengthen muscles with dynamic movements and isometric contractions. 

Stall Bar Lunges Total Body Exercise

Fire up your glutes, hamstrings, and quads on the MoveStrong Stall Bars!

Perform total body lunges with back leg reach in 3 planes of motion. Not only will you feel it in your legs, but you also engage the lats, shoulders, and arms by extending arms and reaching towards your back leg in multiple planes.

Give it a try! We promise you will feel it!

Bodyweight Dragon Flag Progression on Stall Bars

Want abs like Bruce Lee? Watch Jared demonstrate Lee's famous Dragon Flag core exercise using the MoveStrong Stall Bars.  Start by hands grasping and bracing forearms against rungs that allow for a straight arm position, contract lats, and tighten core as you raise lower body.  Begin with the first progression and only proceed to the next based on your ability to maintain strict form for multiple reps in a slow controlled manner. Top position of each should finish on upper back and shoulders, NOT head or neck causing strain. Dragon Flags work all the core stabilizers and because it requires a controlled movement, it builds strength more quickly than isolated core exercises.

Climbing Rope Bounding on Outdoor Fitness Station

This video shows bounding with a climbing rope on the Kickplate feature of the MoveStrong T-Rex outdoor fitness station. 

Leg power to explode off the kickplate along with core and grip strength to keep your feet up while repeating for reps! A fun way to build functional strength!

The Kickplate is ideal for bodyweight exercises, bounding, stretching, handstands, and medicine ball tosses against a solid plate to withstand abuse and outdoor weather conditions.

Drew at Gametime Sports Uses Bands to Correct Squatting Form

Drew Massey, Strength and Conditioning coach at Gametime Sports & Training, demonstrates a method for correcting squatting form using the MoveStrong Club FTS and bands. To maintain an upright position and eliminate knees tracking forward and curvature in the spine, Drew suggests using a band that will slightly pull the body forward creating a natural response to sit back on the heels. This will result in better power position creating more power with a vertical torso and knees in line with the toes. Proper form results in more effective lifts and reduces the possibility of injury.
