Train Anywhere... Anytime - Just Add Water!
Workout At Home Without Damaging The Floors Or Fold It Up And Take It With You On The Road Wherever You Go.
Harness the Reactive, Volatile, & Unpredictable Properties of Water as an Unstable Resistance Training Tool.
By simply changing the hand position and exercise selection the highly versatile Aqua Ball can be used as a Medicine Ball or Kettlebell. Unlike a kettlebell which is made from steel or iron, the Aqua ball is soft making exercises like the clean and snatch comfortable to perform. Save money buying one Aqua Ball that can be filled to your desired weight by simply adding more water to increase the resistance as you become stronger. The largest Aqua Ball fills to a maximum of 65kg’s making it a very economical alternative to many other strength tools.
WHAT IS DYNAMIC RESPONSIVE TRAINING?
Dynamic Responsive Training, or D.R.T., is a philosophy on how to enhance movement and improve adaptability through dynamic external resistance.
D.R.T. harnesses the reactive, volatile, and unpredictable properties of water as an unstable resistance training tool.
No repetition ever feels the same and every muscle needs to activate to control, stabilise and move the unpredictable force of water.
BENEFITS OF DYNAMIC RESPONSIVE TRAINING
AMPLIFY CORRECTIVE FEEDBACK
Whilst lifting a dead weight (i.e. barbell single leg deadlift), it’s easy to move through lifting errors without really being aware of them. However, when performing the same exercise with an Aqua bag. If a mistake is made the water quickly flows to that side, highlighting the error and amplifying the corrective feedback. Receiving this intrinsic feedback during the exercise will result in improved learning and better motor skills.
The design of the Aqua bags allows you to; press, pull and move with the bag in an almost endless number of ways. Plus, the water filled PVC bags are soft to hold making bodyweight exercises such as squats and good mornings comfortable to perform. The different handle positions allow for different grips providing an unparalleled amount of variety to your training.
Increasing the load is a fundamental element for developing strength. However, an optimal strength progression system is overlooked in most training programs. This is one of the reasons why many people hit plateaus in their strength gains. Aqua Bags are the perfect micro loading training tool, simply add more water after each workout and watch your strength gains explode!
SUPERIOR CORE ACTIVATION
D.R.T builds full body stability from the ground up and is scientifically proven to achieve greater core activation. Using the unstable properties of water your core is forced to stay engaged through virtually all Aqua bag exercises, which in turn increases maximal muscle recruitment, whilst improving motor control and increasing full body stabilisation.
The versatility of Aqua bags are ideal for flow workouts where combinations of three or more exercises are performed in sequence one after another without rest. Full-body flow workouts will elevate the heart rate and build lean muscle mass making them excellent for Metcon workouts. This style of training is efficient, great for fat loss and burns more calories than many other training methods.
IMPROVES JOINT STABILITY
D.R.T improves the adaptability to unpredictable, unexpected, and quick changes in resistance because the water flows freely, thus creating a dynamic resistance. This dynamic resistance forces your body to actively engage in order to control and stabilise the shifting load. The resulting improvement in active stability enhances athletic performance and reduces the risk of injury.
Train at home without damaging the floors (or your feet) or simply fold up and take it with you wherever you go. Weighing less than 1kg, the Aqua products can be easily packed away into your luggage which makes them the perfect travel training tool. Just fill with water, add air and you’re all set for a killer workout!
The shape, design and different handles on the Aqua Power bag lends itself perfectly to unilateral training. Unilateral training incorporates single-leg or single-arm exercises that train both sides of the body equally helping to correct muscle imbalances. Unilateral training is also beneficial for developing athletic performance. Explosive movements that require sprinting, jumping, turning, and throwing can all be targeted with unilateral exercises.
