Low-Tech Tools = High-Performance Results

We’ve posted a number of blog articles about the variety of training tools available. Additionally, we’ve posted dozens of “low-tech” training programs at hybridfitness.tv, which involve everything from sandbags to sportbands to kettlebells to bodyweight. Why do I refer to them as “low-tech”? Because they don’t have a bunch of cables or attachments, they don’t cost thousands of dollars, they’re not difficult to learn and they take up very little space. On the contrary, they’re easy to use, easy to transport, inexpensive to purchase and you need very little space to train.

Don’t get me wrong, though. I’ve been going to the gym since I was 16. I love to run intervals on a treadmill or push my limits on a Concept 2 rower as much as anyone and I love to load up the lat pulldown or cable cross machines and see how much weight I can move. If I’ve got an extra $8000 laying around and a few hundred square feet of extra space at my house, I could get myself a couple of these machines. But for 99% of the population, the prospect of outfitting a home gym is out of the question.

Where does that leave you? Easy. Look to the low-tech solution.

With a few different bands of varying resistance, you can replicate most machine movements. Throw in a kettlebell or two and you’ve just expanded your options. Top it off with a couple sandbags and you literally have everything you need to get in shape, increase your muscular strength and endurance and skyrocket your conditioning.

We don’t sell these products directly, but everyone at Hybrid Fitness has purchased them for our training clients as well as personal use! With that said, we recommend you try them for yourself. You’ll be amazed how challenging an overhead squat is with tiny resistance band, or how a simple set of kettlebell Up & Overs will test your mental and physical limits. Visit our Training and Exercise of the Week sections for lots more exercise ideas.

  1. I would highly recommend the Iron Woody bands for versatility and durability ( a bit corny). I recently bought the athletic pack and had them shipped to the UK. I’m so impressed with them. I commonly use them with weights, but more often than not use them alone for tricep pushdowns, foot stompers, pull aparts, abduction etc the list is endless in fact who needs a gym they’re so portable I even do them on lunch times at work. I get some strange looks but get a session at the same time

  2. Hey Rob, thanks for the post! I agree with with what you said about durability and versatility. I use my woody bands all the time for strength drills, conditioning drills, etc. and NONE of them have shown signs of deterioration. I’ve had them for a few years now.

    Keep training hard!
