A Greener Approach
Recently I was contacted by a company called Emerging Green. They were sweet and sent me an at home kit! This kit was really great for the most part. Providing equipment for a full body workout or being able to split it up into sections. It was great to provide a kit that was easily portable as well. Traveling after COVID? Take this with you and keep up on your fitness.
Let's begin with the bad. The band, not a good band. This was the only disappointing piece of this kit. The band moved around too much and did not provide enough tension. It was difficult to do many exercises that could have been done with a mini band much easier. Mini bands are flatter and less likely to roll up the legs or arms. This band also felt flimsy and as though it may snap at any moment.
Push-up grips. These are a great tool for beginners to advanced gym-goers. They can be used for a variety of push-ups, core work and more.
I haven't jumped rope in years, when I say years I mean since I was a kid. Not a teen, a child. So after decades of not jumping rope I had some fun doing it again. This rope was perfect for me, I am nearly 5' 11 and it can be difficult to find a good and long jump rope. This was perfect, the thickness of the rope is also great. The smaller the rope, the more it hurts if you mess up. (Don't mess up and wack yourself, that sting stays for about five minutes! Yikes!) Jump ropes are a great way to add fun and cardio to the mix of your workouts as well.
Finally, the best piece in here (IMO), the ab wheel! I was more excited about this due to the structure of it. The larger wheel give s a much more stable base, especially for those who are new to using an ab wheel. This piece comes with a little foam mat to put under your knees. Protection of the patella is vital. This pieces is also very sturdy, my partner uses it nearly every workout. He is 5' 7" and 230 of nearly solid muscle. This is also a great piece to take with you on road trips. Having a nice active, strong core is great for posture and long car rides or plane rides.
With all other excuses out the door this kit is the bees knees! Never miss a workout again with this great kit. My only suggestion would be to add a different band or two to this kit as the band that comes with it is not suitable for any movement.
You can find their kit on their site or through Amazon! Stay healthy Warriors!
