What is Rip Training?
Rip Training utilizes a lever bar and resistance cord to provide a unique mix of rotation, core stability, control, power, strength, mobility, metabolic conditioning, balance and coordination challenges. TRX has developed a wide assortment of unique, leverage-variable resistance exercise movements, coaching cues, and programming and educational principles using the Rip Trainer, the collection of which comprises Rip Training.
The Rip Trainer allows users to engage in unlimited movements which, when performed properly, enhance fluidity and range of motion and decrease the risk of injury. Whether used for high speed striking movements or slow speed strength and stability exercises, the Rip Trainer is the perfect training tool for elite level athletes, fitness enthusiasts and even people wanting to exercise for the first time.
Life and sport require that we be able to both control and produce rotational force. Rip Training utilises the same asymmetrical loading we encounter every day. Whether you're carrying groceries, picking up your child, throwing a ball, or performing athletic movements such as swimming, running, and biking, your body is always producing rotation or controlling externally-induced rotation.
Rip Training provides a simple, effective method to integrate rotational movements into training with the ability to layer on complexity to suit your goals. Rip Training is also an effective solution for developing and challenging mobility and stability throughout the body. Rip Training utilises elastic resistance that allows for high-speed, low-load rotational movement training or low-speed, high-load rotational movement training.
