G-Force + POWER BANDS Kit allows to exercise on a multi-planar space and to mimic and recreate everyday movements with an incredible smoothness and authenticity (swim strokes, nordic ski strokes, as well as mixed martial arts fighting techniques for enhanced training effect, to train speed and agility drills, to make you faster and stronger with shadow boxing, punching speed and toning).
This is great for working your joints, increasing and strengthening natural movement patterns used in daily activities, often characterized by sudden acceleration and deceleration.
Use the (included) POWER BANDS CONNECTOR accessory to connect G-FORCE with the POWER Bands.
The black strap wraps the POWER BAND and reduce the stress on the rubber (no pinching or squeezing), while you secure it passing through the double buckle system of the second component. Then you connect the G-Force Pulley to the buckle left free.
For swimmers, watermen and triathletes to improve their musculature out of the water, doing functional and specific movements (mimic specific stroke mechanics of freestyle and breaststroke style) to gain strength and endurance that should translate to more power in the water.
If you are on a busy schedule (like triathletes and waterman) and getting the adequate time on the water is a challenge, you can train with our system saving countless hours on the pool.
Train the upper body in combination with specific exercises for the legs (like legs power strokes in plank position, using the G-Force kit);
Although we swim using arms and legs don’t forget that the transmission of power between the limbs is due to the core: a strong core help keeping the body streamline by making the paddling and the kicking more powerful. You can reinforce your core doing the many exercises that the G-Force kit allows to do.
Improve punching power, cardiovascular endurance and overall muscular endurance through repetition. The system force the muscles to work harder and grow stronger, with patterns that are similar to the sport, providing resistance across the entire range of motion in the direction of the punches.
The training is dynamic. You manage the resistance by moving farther or closer to the anchoring point. It helps with explosiveness and also with bringing the weight into the punches. The whole body is in motion and work against the force applied.
Speed comes from your fast twitch muscle fibers. Building muscles will not make you slower: If you didn't have muscles you would not be able to move.
You need muscle mass to be able to perform explosive movements. Power exercises should generally be performed directly after your warm-up and mobility as explosive power exercises are highly neurologically taxing.
With resistance bands you can train in any direction (not only against the force of gravity, as with a dumbbell): you can pull forward and upward, you can push backward and downward, as well as perform rotational movements, even combining the moves in a fluid manner.
They are great for targeting stabilizing muscles, and to assist you in bodyweight exercises as pull-ups, push-up, squat...
Power Bands can bring seriuos value to your workouts thanks to the "ACCOMODATING RESISTANCE": the farther you pull a resistance band, the more it quite literally “resists” you. Take a biceps curl. Curl the dumbbell upwards, and there comes a point where the curl actually gets “easy” for your biceps, near the top of the motion. The length of the lever that challenges your biceps decreases as you finish the exercise, meaning gravity can no longer create challenge with the dumbbell (and your muscle no longer needs to create as much force to fight that challenge).
With a resistance band, as you near the top, it doesn’t get easier; instead, you have to work to earn the squeeze at the top of the curl. The stretched band is fighting you more, forcing you to accelerate through the entire range of motion and challenging your muscle fibers in a different way. You’ll have to squeeze your muscles extra-hard to fight banded resistance, a habit that will improve your dumbbell training, too.
The Ring Handle allows to hold the band firmly (without the discomfort of pressure points and friction when you hold the bands in your hand), and allows multiple grip positions (underhand, overhand, hammer grip and other angles to train with maximum comfort):
- with just one hand for maximum intensity and unilateral moves;
- with 2 hands to exert full power with bilateral exercises and rotational moves;
- you can also train without the handle for many multi compound, legs and bodyweight exercises.
The Ring Handle is made of Birch wood with a Diameter of 23cm and a Width of 32mm, with a textured, grip-friendly surface that works with or without chalk. It has a distinct natural feel preferred by many athletes.The setup is fast and easy.
Complete your training with a TOTAL BODY WORKOUT using just your G-FORCE.
It allows the practice of the WIDEST RANGE OF FITNESS EXERCISES in a single piece of gear (more than 250 exercises), it's physically CHALLENGING (to workout with heavy resistance), FUNCTIONAL AND VERY SPECIFIC to all our sport needs (for strength, endurance, explosive, acrobatic movements), FUN AND INSPIRING (as it's hard to have"long term discipline and constancy"), it's PORTABLE (to use at home, at the gym, when traveling), and EXPANDABLE (if you are like us, you want to train for all your sports).
With standard (static) suspension training systems, the straps are pinched together in the centre and cannot be altered, providing some kind of stability.
The inclusion of a central pulley means that the handles can be used to control the length of the strap on either side of the pulley as the strap is drawn back and forward through the pulley itself. The friction is strongly reduced and it allows greater unilateral motion. Greater unilateral movements provide disruptive torques that contribute to instability.
This significantly increase the amount of effort and strength required to control and balance the system while in use.
So the highest core and upper extremities muscle activation is induced by pulley suspension systems (Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, September 2014).
In SUSPENSION EXERCISES, Co-contraction is the key physiological difference with other forms of training: the number of muscles activated to control movement is higher, as muscles on both sides of a joint (or group of joints) contract to increase stability and to prevent unwanted movement.
In PULLEY SUSPENSION EXERCISES, the even higher instability produce an increased level of co-contraction around the limbs and all stabilizer muscles.
It can be used by all fitness levels and for all needs. By leveraging your body weight and using the pulley, G-FORCE offers the possibility for progression by increasing the load for further challenges.
It allows to work on your form and perfect some of the trickiest gym moves. From the perfect squat, to a single-leg squat, to a plank, using the G-FORCE can help you push that little bit deeper and really nail the move (so there are plenty of transferable skills to help you improve in sport, or just generally be a better-functioning human).
G-FORCE has great accessibility (not using any additional weight to your body), so it’s really safe and easy for beginners or people coming back from injury.
Thanks to the extreme portability (less than 2 lbs / 1kg), you can easily install it outdoors, when traveling or at home and as a result, you are not restricted to training only in a gym environment.
They’ve been awesome to use for resistance training and especially my core workouts. Holding the Ring Handle let you exert all your rotational power. Excellent product so far, and with the connection accessory you can do a wide variety of exercises with the G-Force Pulley system.
1.Very durable material. Tolerates good stretch/tension. 2. Portable exercise equipment. 3. Wide variety of exercises possible - comes with suggested exercise, but you can make your own variations, too. 4. Comfortable Ring handle for multiple grip options.
I like working out at home because it saves time and money. I am in the best shape since my 30's with these and I am very soon 48. I'm genuinely impressed that these, along with G-Force suspension system have given me a better physique than I've had in twenty years. Less wear-and-tear on the joints, too, which is important as we age. Totally recommended!
I have used other resistance bands before but these look much stronger, the resistance gets harder as you go through the range of motion.
They are a pretty amazing alternative to dumbbells. You can do a legit workout with them and the exercises you can do are really only limited by your creativity.
With COVID-19 on the rise, my husband and I were looking for something easy to store to supplement our home workout routine. So we decided to go for G-Force Pulley Workout together with POWER BANDS. They are great. They came with a rich training book that shows a ton of different ways to work out various muscle groups.
