Rumble Roller

The RumbleRoller was specifically designed to mimic thumb-like massage pressure in order to break up knotted muscle fibers, decrease muscle tension and diminish muscle tightness. This roller is much more aggressive than the conventional foam roller and is able to get deeper in the muscle fascia to reach the toughest trigger points.

The Bike Studio

The Bike Studio has chosen the Wattbike as the only indoor bike to be endorsed by British Cycling; developed to replicate the sensation of "real" cycling.

The Wattbike monitors everything you need to know about your cycling and will help you to track progress as your training develops. Whether you are looking to monitor your power output, cadence, heart rate and the effectiveness of your pedalling, there is a measurement parameter for you.

Operating the Wattbike is very easy. Simply sit on the Wattbike, select 'Just ride' from the 'Main menu' and start pedalling. The Wattbike Performance Computer will give immediate cycling feedback. The monitor has a powerful list of features (including: preset workouts, save favourite workouts, Reride against a previous training sessions or cycling analysis) and it is simple to use.

LIGHT vs HEAVY MEDICINEBALL TRAINING

With any assignment utilizing the medicine ball as weight and joint and stroke velocity as the mechanism of overload, the weight selected should be light enough so that the assigned stroke volume can be completed at the highest stroke velocity without substantially altering the kinematics of the assigned motion. If you error on the side of light weight, velocity increase will insure the practice- training effect. To error on the side of heavy weight, you fail in velocity, volume and integrity of the assigned movement leaving you with only a strength training set.
