Step 3 - Equipment Guide

(Scroll down to see video ⬇︎⬇︎⬇︎)

Here's some equipment you might find helpful during this strength and agility program.

Helpful Equipment List

If you choose the Body weight / Suspension trainer track:

  • Jungle Gym XT, or similar suspension trainer (highly recommended)
  • Suspension trainer wall anchor (Optional)
  • Push-up handles (Optional - I use these because I have wrist issues)

If you choose the Weight track:

  • Squat rack
  • Bench
  • 7 foot Olympic bar
  • Barbell weights
  • Barbell weight collars
  • Pull-up bar
  • Dumbbells 

(If you are interested in home gym equipment, comment below. If there's enough interest, I'll put together "my favorite things" at a good price. I've been researching for months for myself, so I'm ready! )

Agility and miscellaneous 

  • Jump Rope 1 (highly recommended) or here's some less expensive options: jump rope 2, or jump rope 3
  • Jump Rope mat (highly recommended if using jump rope)
  • Jaeger Bands or similar bands (shoulder care and strength training)
  • Agility ladder (highly recommended)
  • Cones (Optional. If you don't want to buy cones, you can use old shoes, a water bottle, or whatever you have laying around)
  • Ankle bands
  • Box (to elevate feet for pushups, side bridge, or make suspension trainer more challenging)
  • PVC pipe, broomstick, or baseball bat
  • Something for hand and forearm strength.  The program has “Farmer walks” which is walk down and back with dumbbells or kettlebells in each hand. Can use a dumbbell to hold, bucket full of water with sturdy handle, or we can modify by hanging in the air from a straight bar (such as a pull-up bar), so your hands are holding your bodyweight.
