Attachments!! Assemble!!

Ok, so my wrist support isn’t exactly Thor’s hammer but my word, it certainly opens up a new world of variety for me in the gym, a place that The God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth, would no doubt utilised to build his awesome physique in the Marvel series.

I love to share training attachment discoveries, for a number of reasons.

For me, the gym is one giant toolbox to help improve your fitness and can be used in so many different ways that help many with their goal. Think about it, the number of people that will head to the gym this week will each have a goal, some at the start, middle or toward the end of their targets. But each will be different.

Now, take a huge variety of equipment, multiply that by the ways in which they can be used and the mix of sets and volume that can be done, that’s a significant number of combinations right there.

This is why I love the attachments, they can be used to create and harness new mix ups of sets to accommodate my different style owing to my disability. I’ve talked before about the creative process that this produces in the gym, and those combinations increase week on week.

Be it a wrist support, ankle strap, V handle, ropes, lat bars, there are so many combos to suit the type of training you need.

Another challenge to tackle is how those different combos take time to bring together, as I’ve suggested before to seek advice from a qualified PT, this will help define what can work for you.

I’ve enjoyed taking individual trips to the gym to experiment these days, starting with just the attachment, looking to isolate the muscle area I want and finding a unique way forward, I just love discovering new paths and continue to find myself day by day…

It’s a world of discovery…
