During competition, athletes constantly move at high speeds, reacting to opponents and doing whatever it takes to accomplish their goals. This makes strength that can be applied through the body's full range of motion essential for on-field success. In recognition of this need and to help meet it, ViPR, a company in London, England, created the ViPR functional trainer [seen in the video above].
The ViPR is a hollow tube made of dense, durable rubber and designed for functional and versatile sports performance training. Available in weights ranging from four kg to 20 kg, it can be lifted, thrown or dragged; and it is safe and suitable for all levels of ability and a wide variety of exercises.
Incorporating the ViPR into your training program will challenge your muscles and core in a fashion similar to how they are used on the field, helping to improve overall strength, balance and coordinated movements. Michol Dalcourt, creator of Vipr, says, "ViPR was created from a need to evolve training tools, foster purposeful motion and blend strength training with functional training and movement. Movement is fundamental. And what makes up effective movement is a blend of lifting, shifting and twisting."
Unique properties of the ViPR allow you to perform exercises you've probably never heard of. For some examples, check out the ViPR Boot Camp Circuit. You will be impressed by the versatility of this powerful training tool and its potential to amp up your sports training program.
