I’ve always made the case that workout tools, gadgets, and devices have their place. Something new to try keeps your fire burning. Of course, most of these things eventually find their way into a spare bedroom closet.
But what hasn’t? What training accessory has become a staple for you?
I made my case for some type of landmine device HERE.
What has earned its place in your gym bag or home gym and gets used often?
Ok, seems a little silly. But, I LOVE this thing! Stability ball leg curls had me shifting all over the place and it was hard to get a good burn in both hamstrings equally. This thing works wonders, and is VERY humbling.
Yes, but I’m only doing half scoops on training days (for cut purposes) so the effect is pretty minimal.
To be honest, I’m taking other things that are FAR more likely to increase vascularity than Surge or BFR Bands. But I can see like all my veins when using them, so it’s hard to act like it doesn’t have a noticeable effect.
I’ve had a few different brands of thick grips sent to me over the years for testing. (They’re hoping to get a mention or a review on T Nation.) I’m honest with them. Had to tell one company that their design was just off and that Fat Gripz simply does a better job. I declined to write about the other brand because I didn’t want to slag their company.
I’m also interested in the Fat Gripz less-fat version too. For some exercises (and hand sizes), I think a smaller diameter would be better.
Same, pretty much using those on everything(I’ve had grip problems for years before )
Also dunno if it counts as “gadget”, since I’ve started running last year again, I’ve been a huge fan of inov8 running shoes(it’s pretty much the first manufacturer that ACTUALLY has something for my size 13 feet. Auto win in my book)
