What’s the use of elevation masks? For those who don’t know what that is, it’s an awesome looking fitness accessory that makes you look like Bane from Batman. Other than making you look like a complete bad-ass in the gym and your morning/late night runs, does it have any real purpose?
If you are having troubles improving acceleration in your game, look no further. The now popular prowler can be used to improve just that.
The great thing about using the prowler is that it very easy to use and does not require much skill to use. All you need is a prowler, some plates (if desired), and some space to run up and down, preferably indoors or an area where there isn't too much traffic.
The following is an excerpt from a presentation during our senior year of university. It is a brief video explaining an issue that arose a few years ago in the fitness industry. CRUNCHES... were all of the sudden a taboo.
Physiotherapists, personal trainers and any rehab specialists were "educating people" to avoid doing crunches because "it is bad for your back".
The shearing forces... The degenerative disc disease... The time wasted not doing something else more "functional" (ahem a topic for a future post)... it is madness!
