Jungle gym XT

Been using one of these recently, likig it a lot but needs some concentration and control to do the exercises without damaging yourself

Started doing atomic pressups last week, didn,t "control" my core and have fooked my back, now walking like john wayne

Anyone using this gear, any thoughts on best use/exercises or whether its just a gimmick

Looks like a gimmick, probably a high-priced one to boot. Haven't used it, but don't see how it's any better than a pair of gymnastic rings hung from a pullup bar.
Our gym has just been installed with hard points for circuit sessions with this, the general consensus is its nails.

I'm doing it over a tree branch, in the garden at the minute. I think i'm gonna go with the ******* nails but gimmicky option.

Costs a 100 quid and you could rig one up yourself but for absolute ease of use this is the second gen of theses things and seems mega well designed

I've got full faith in it and you have to when you are putting full bodyweight through it with your face six inches of the deck.

Still dangerous if you haven't really gone to town on your core prior to using it. i've been smashing alsorts of exotic pressups and doing some v strong core exercises when boxing training ( explosive plank to press up ect) and it stil caught me un awares

So far though its seems like a god shake up, muscle confusing bit of kit

We use rings at my gym, and they wake you up all right. You assume that dips, pushups etc. won't be any harder on the rings - you soon learn otherwise.
Yeah this seems to be the opinion, if your core isn't up to it, it soon will be. All the rage at our place and these guys are fit fellas so I bow to their wisdom.

I stuck the jungle gym xts in my day sack flying round the world they do'nt take up much room and are nicely designed for door anchorage, trees etc

The foot stirrups are confy as fook but add to the relative bulk

I seriously considered a TRX - until I saw the price!

Edit; still a smashing bit of training kit - makes you realise why gymnasts have such ripped physiques.
Buy the real thing

TRX Suspension Training & TRX Rip Training: Total Body Workouts | TRX

I've been using this for years, you can shove it in a backpack and use it indoors (hotel room) or out. The work outs are great particualry when you are past 40 and don't want to f#$k your back-up in the huge factory trying to bench like Arnold
^what he said. Bollox that kit, get it off amazon.com or from another supplier in the US and forget about DVD's etc. go to the gym and pay a good PT for some lessons on this.
TRX Force Kit is 110$ the regular package is 160$, it is hardly more expensive.

Amazon.com: trx
Get a set of elite rings, mine go everywhere with me. You can use them in the same way as TRX etc but you can also do pulls up, dips and muscle ups (Hardcore, not for the faint hearted) etc. I have had mine about 5 years and I paid about 80 quid for them, most of my workouts in the time I have had them are based around them. You wont be disappointed.
I just tried a TRX workout at the gym for the first time. It's a stinking, horrible and painful experience which made me nearly puke my liver through my nostrils.

It's fùcking mega.
