Get better at the sports you play and the life you lead at STACK. Improve your training, nutrition and lifestyle with daily

XDrifft Trainer

XDrifft is a floor-based functional training tool that trains your entire body for movement. Built to fit snugly on both your hands and feet, the XDrifft works several different sets of muscles by simply using your body's resistance against gravity—while simultaneously harnessing and increasing your range of motion.

The XDrifft is designed to slide on any exercise floor platform, allowing you to perform functional exercises with or without additional weight.

XDrifft endorses the concept that an athlete needs supreme core strength and mobility to maximize lower and upper body strength. Mike Goforth, director of athletic training at Virginia Tech, says, "The core must fire first before the [body part] moves, so we get a good total body workout, a good core workout, as well as being able to work a single extremity."Portable, customizable in terms of levels of intensity across multiple exercises, and designed for cardio and/or strength workouts, this versatile workout system could be a great addition to any athletic program's training facility. Priced at $84.95, the XDrifft comes with knee pads and an instructional video. View the video below for some of the exercises that can be performed using the system; and for more moves, visit XDrifft.com.
