One of the toughest workouts ever can be done with cross training systems. Because cross training is one of the most strenuous sports in the world. In principle, you can even compare it to a boot camp. The training methods and facilities are only known from the army. In Germany, too, cross training is now a growing trend, which originally comes from the USA.
The advantage of this training method is that it is a mixture of three training variants:
1. Functional training
2. Competitive sport
3. Classic fitness training
This makes it suitable for every age group. You can also get through the tough workouts as a beginner and constantly improve. Each training is divided into three categories. There are endurance units, gymnastics elements and strength exercises. In a crosstraining gym you will always find the current training written on a box.
In short, this sport can be described with the following slogan: Maximum stress on the cardiovascular system and muscles. The physical fitness but also the mental strength is incredibly stressed. Even if the training can be done with your own body weight, you still need some accessories and equipment, such as power racks, pull-up bars, dip bars, kettlebells and other items.
Basically, such training can also be carried out without a trainer. You can hardly hurt yourself with your own body weight. The muscles, joints and bones are not stressed too much, but in an appropriate range.
In the following, we explain exactly what you need and what expenses you can save. But not only the sports equipment is decisive, but also the accessories. An important note at this point: A large part of the TOLYMP devices is certified for use in public areas in accordance with the TÜV standard DIN EN 16630:2015-06 (stationary outdoor fitness devices).
The 5 most popular training devices!
The most popular and important are the rigs. Because with it you can claim almost all parts of the body and keep fit accordingly. In most cases, you do not need products such as a cross trainer. Finally, you can also go for a run in the fresh air, which is also much healthier.
The rig is also often called a rack. In the rack you can store dumbbells and barbells or do pull-up exercises. This means you can do without weights and you don't need any weight plates that you lose at home or are unnecessary.
With such a fitness article, you can combine it with a rope. Place this around a corner and now carry out the corresponding movements. The ropes mainly train the condition. Nevertheless, shoulders, abdomen, back, arms and legs are also trained.
Not to be forgotten is the pull-up bar. Normally this is included with a rig. If you only need the rod, you can also buy it separately. In our online shop we sell the pull-up bar as a single part. If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us. We are happy to help.
The fourth product we can name is Pullup Rings. You can also do pull-ups or muscle ups and dips on these. However, the challenge here is maintaining balance, which is a typical aspect of functional training.
Because you have to keep your balance, other muscle groups are also addressed and used.
Athletes like to use such training equipment. After all, they are significantly more demanding than others.
Finally, we want to highlight the kettlebells. Below we go into more detail on the subject. After all, they are the classics for every workout. You can't do without a kettlebell for strength training either. The movements are very natural and therefore easy on the joints.
Your home equipment should mainly consist of these five parts. Almost every gym now has such equipment. Performing calisthenics does not necessarily have to be done at home, but it is much more pleasant and cheaper in the long run.
Good outdoor fitness machines for strength, speed and condition
Healthy fitness consists of strength, speed and conditioning. So that your condition and your heart are also pushed to the limit. Normally this is achieved very quickly through jumping exercises. For this you can use skipping ropes or so-called plyo boxes.
The condition can also be trained by punch series. In addition, fast series of punches on a sandbag also strain the upper body muscles. This also puts a lot of strain on the cardiovascular system.
Another option is to get a truck tire or tractor tire and hit it with a hammer. Of course, you can also do simpler training exercises for your condition.
However, you need a bicycle ergometer, spinning bike or rowing ergometer for this. Of course you can also move in nature. It's definitely a lot more fun too.
Medicine balls are also recommended for strength training. In addition, you can also exercise very well with cross-fitness equipment. The medicine ball is also intended for fitness and speed. For example, you take it in your arms and run with it.
You can set up different stations. A satisfied customer of ours told how he implements it. He has set up different stations at the sports facility. Finally, you can also use it as a dumbbell stand. There he then does squats with a barbell, then hanging exercises and then dips on the rings.
Meanwhile, his little daughter is playing on the horizontal bar and is also doing sports. In this way, you will be introduced to healthy sport and fitness at a young age.
