Spotlight Product - The Plyo Bar
May 22, 2008 17:09
Build Speed, Agility, Strength and Quickness with Plyos
Plyometrics at Its Best
The Plyo Bar enables athletes to perform a variety of effective exercises, including plyometrics, with the highest level of safety. The apparatus consists of a round crossbar that is set inside an 8-foot-by-6-foot platform with a nonslip rubber surface. The crossbar is adjustable in one-inch increments to accommodate all users, and a mechanism is attached to minimize vibration as the athlete exercises.
The apparatus is called the Plyo bar because it is perfectly designed to enable athletes to perform lateral jumps while holding on to the bar for balance. This is the signature exercise of the Plyo bar, and it develops lower body power and, when performed for longer durations, improves muscular endurance. In fact, we’ve found that even when the crossbar is set at its lowest height, it is difficult for any athlete to perform lateral jumps for more than one minute – and you really have to try it to appreciate how great a workout this is.
Bigger Faster Stronger is committed to bringing coaches and athletes the best equipment for developing winning programs. To this end we are constantly developing bold new ideas to keep athletes challenged and engaged in their training. The Plyo Bar is perfect example of the BFS development team bringing excitement and enthusiasm to a coaches plyometric program and inciting new commitment from the athlete.
The versatility for upper and lower body training as well as flexibility and agility drills make the BFS Plyo Bar an exceptional value for any program. Bring the power of plyometrics to your weight room!

What's Happenning - Pull DOWNs instead of Pull Ups
May 28, 2008 21:53
We recently got a nice letter and some photos from Mark Garrett, who enjoyed the article on high pulls (March/April 2008) and wrote, "I’ve been saying that we Americans overemphasize the UPs (pull) of the sport and underemphasize the DOWNs (pull under)." Garrett certainly knows what he is talking about...
