I bought a trolley #TotalGym1000 a few weeks ago. I've used it only a few times as well as I've been thinking how to implement it in my trainings so it fits and helps well for other major goals. Honestly I've been struggling on knowing what movements to do with it, what volume, intensity etc... Which is dumb as fuck because I'll never know if i don't use it, explore it and play with it. Plus it's even dumber for me not to use it, as my main goal is just getting overall stronger. And by STRONGER i mean HEALTHIER. Not just moving more kilos.
So here's my quick review on it :
It's fucking awesome and everyone should use it. PERIOD. No matter the sport you do.
-The ranges of motion you can work on are incredible (even tho it could still be better).
-It allows you to perform movements with very good mechanics (IF you put the effort in!!)
-The resistance can be adjusted and you can add weight for extra resistance.
-It's of course a big advantage for #gymnastics skills as it allows you to work with a big volume, work skills with high reps & quality. Or with extra weight for strength. But still awesome for any other sport. -The body tension needed to perfom with good form is awesome (e.g the first clip).
-Shoulder health 🥰
-Pre-hab, re-hab, active recovery, assitance work, mobility, hypertrophy, strength, resistance... Great for everything.
