ViPR PRO® Grips 02:05

The design of the ViPR PRO® provides numerous grips or ways to hold/carry it. This offers many opportunities to load the body in variable ways, with each grip providing a unique training response. In Chapter 4, the Exercise Library, you'll notice we may regress, progress, or modify an exercise by simply changing the grip. This is the easiest way to modify an exercise to match the capabilities of the user. For example, with the Halo, we start using the Neutral Grip, and progress the user to a Wide grip as this demands greater mobility in the trunk and shoulders. As you explore the ViPR PRO®, try performing a given task numerous ways by simply changing the grip with that given task. You'll quickly find how each grip promotes a different response in the body. Fundamental Grips:
  • Neutral, Narrow, Wide, Offset
  • Front, Offset Front, Shoulder
  • Shovel, Suitcase (Underhand/Overhand)
  • On End, On Tube, Pinch (1 Hand, Both Hands)
