I am slowly building a portable gym. Not by design. I’m just kind of lazy about cleaning out my car. Tonight it’s supposed to snow, but last time it was warm (in February!) I decided to take inventory of all the exercise equipment in my car.
- One vertical jump tester (some assembly required)
- a found barbell
- one recovered gymnastics I thought might be fun for layout practice
- one aerobic step (overpriced and kinda useless)
- two medicine balls
- a yoga mat
- a lifting belt
- and uh… roller skates.
So how much fitness equipment does an ultimate player really need?
I’d recommend the following:
This is all you need for training. Never let a lack of fancy toys stand in your way. With less equipment you may have to think a little harder. But you don’t need parachutes, ladders, TRXs, futuristic footware, or expensive laser timers to make yourself into a better athlete.
You do need preparation, a plan, and some discipline.
When it’s warm again, these cones will become my most used tool for agility training. Stay tuned…
