Sports Performance Benefits
The Bear Mountain is a unique combination of four different exercises that build full-body strength and power. Its primary focus is to improve hip drive, which will make you faster and improve virtually any athletic skill. The Bear Mountain is also a great conditioner. Performing repetitive power movements helps you fight fatigue when you have to take multiple shots or throws in a row, or make repeated checks or tackles.
