Whether you are training professional athletes or weekend warriors, these classic athletic conditioning props can mean the winning difference.

In honor of our #UpYourGame series this month, we’ve highlighted three classic props that everyone from elite athletes such as NHL players to yoga-moms and novice runners use to improve their performance.

Medicine Balls

Medicine balls can be used in countless exercises to improve coordination, balance, cardiovascular endurance and most effectively, strength. Experts agree that explosive strength – the ability to exert maximum force in a short period - is key to athletic performance. Adding a medicine ball to plyometric exercise adds greater challenge and builds quick muscle response to enhance an athlete’s explosive strength.

Stability Cushions™

Simple but effective, Stability Cushions™ add variety and challenge by providing an unstable base that forces joints and muscles to react to maintain balance. Create greater challenge for athletes by forcing them to stabilize parts of their body while performing athletic conditioning sequences. Improve stability, strength and balance in standing, sitting, kneeling, supine and prone positions.

Strength Tubing

Strength Tubing is simple but extremely effective at working the entire body. Add to athletic conditioning exercises - chest presses, rows, triceps extensions, bicep curls, and squats – to create a full-body workout that challenges every major muscle group, while boosting stamina, flexibility, and range of motion. Strength Tubing also offers a more dynamic challenge than traditional weights. Unlike weights, where gravity can diminish resistance, Strength Tubing provides constant resistance throughout movements, so athletes have to work harder.
