Mirafit Guide To The Bootcamp Kit

Mirafit Guide To The Bootcamp Kit


Hi everybody, this is Steve Parke from
Parkecore personal training and today we have a basic guide for using the
bootcamp kit from mirafit. Okay, so let’s get started. we’ll go onto this bad boy,
first this is the battle rope it’s great for conditioning work and strength work
really great for working your core, arms legs, backs in one unity so great for
your chain. Really good conditioning highly recommend this and great for
using outdoors as well as indoors. Then we move over to the slam ball. Really
good because as they slam down on the ground or the energy disperses so it’s
really good for your speed, your power and endurance. So again ties really
nicely with the battle ropes for the conditioning work moving over to the
kettlebell again it’s something that can be used outdoors or indoors, various
weights, excellent for conditioning and also because it can be used
independently, helps the body balance out any imbalances with the body so a
really great bit of kit to again complement the range. And then we move
over to sandbag. Great for again adding strength, conditioning and functionality
with you training and also variation which is important to keep it exciting
and fun. So using this you can really load it up on it, do your basic moves;
squats, pulls, rows, but having a functionality of the bag and the
variation. And then moving over to this big bad boy behind me; the sled.
Excellent for building the power, the strength. So when we’re working with
trainers it can be used to push and also use in a pulling motion as well. So you
get the combination of both. Again working the front and the rear anterior
and posterior chain of your body. So the combination of all of these or these
five bits of equipment are excellent for getting a really good workout, keeping
things varied and simple and getting the best out of time that you have in the
gym or outside. okay so let’s get into a bit more detail
and we’ll start off with the battleropes and the great thing with this one
is as you move in it, as the motion kicks in you’ll find you’re having to work your
core that really had to tighten up to keep the good form. Arms get worked, the
legs get worked, even the anterior chain also gets worked as well. So it’s really a
great bit of industrial strong kit. Great products and great grips on
there, so you’re gonna have a really fine grip and also varied in sizes as well so
you can increase the intensity or increase the duration of your training. One of my favourite tips and one of my favorite ways of using this one is a
minute on, 30 seconds off and having five different types of battlerope exercises
for each minute on. This is something that you can build up over time, but if
you aim for that minute period of hard work. I guarantee you, you’ll definitely
know about it in the end Moving over onto the slam ball. Another
great bit of kit, something that can be used anywhere. Indoors, outdoors. Needs
minimum space for it, so a really versatile. When the ball bounces
down, this is not like a medicine ball which will spring back up. It’s a slam
ball. So it drops down, it’s a dead weight. With this it means you have to
use all your energy to pick it back up again and slam it back down again. It’s
quite a basic move and it’s one of the moves you can use with it also use it to do press ups with which you can get into more detail in regards
to later on. The nice thing about this one is although they can look quite easy
again once you get to that minute to a minute and a half stage things start to
really work hard. Your arms, shoulders, back, legs. The whole chain. The whole part
of your body has to work to get this right One of my favourite moves with this
one is instead of standing up and doing the slamming, is to kneel down, so you’re
in a similar position to I am at the moment. You’re kneeling down and you’re
slamming that ball down for all it’s worth onto the ground. It sounds easy but
I guarantee you, it’s probably harder than the standing option and I’d highly
recommend that as a pro tip and moving over now to the kettlebell a bit of
equipment that’s been around for centuries literally, but really great for
functional training. Allows you to move and allows the body to move naturally so the body works around the equipment the equipment works around the body and
it’s in great unison. There are lots of things you can do with these. Very
similar to use in free weights but it gives you that movement that that
essential movement to keep the body healthy strong and more functional
around robust day today. One of my favourite moves with the kettlebells are the
kettlebell swings. It’s something that when you get right, and you’ll know when
you have them right because you’ll feel all the muscles working correctly. Again,
it involves the whole body, everything gets worked so there’s nothing left out,
there’s no imbalances and it’s a great little move. And with this one I would
say go for a 30 second on, 30 second off period and as you find that gets a
little bit easier for you, you have the option of either increasing the weight
or increasing your duration within the exercise. Great bit of kit and that’s
another pro tip. Alright, moving over to the sandbag this is something that again can be used indoors or outdoors. Needs minimum space and also you can look at
it as using it very similar to using weights with it again it allows your
body that movement, that natural movement that’s sometimes you won’t get with the
weights when they’re being used. They come in various sizes and weight, so you can
really wrap them up and again with something like this it can be used for
conditioning so utilising it for deadlifts, squats, carries. Even things
such as farmer carries, if you have two of them. A great conditioning exercise
really good to be able to use indoors and outdoors and with the formation of
it and also the varying grips, it gives you a lot of functionality and options
on how you want to use it as well. One of my pro tips for this one, use it to do
squats with. So you rack it up and do your squats with and then also unrack it
and do your presses. So you flip it up and press up with it. It’s a great one
for working the lower part of your body the upper part of your body and also
including your abs and working your core at the same time. So everything gets
worked in a very short period of time. Okay, now moving over to the Sled. This
is a great bit of kit and it has a lot of varying grips. So a lot of
functionality in regards to how you can use it. One of the nice things about this
is it can be used to push and pull as well as using it with a harness
attachment. So this allows you to train the front and the rear
almost at the same time, within the same workout and also incorporating the
harness as well which increases the speed/power endurance for any endurance
athletes that might be utilising it as well. One of the main benefits with this
one and a little pro tip I really like to use, is utilizing a 100-meter space
and then using it to push initially down that 100-meter run way and then spinning it
around and then using it as a pull so that way your work in both aspects of
the body. It’s really tough, it’s surprisingly tough and that’s just
without the weights. You’ll find if you can do maybe three or four rounds of
that, with just enough rest period in between to catch your breath. It’d be
really challenging workout and you won’t have to do much more. It’ll leave you on
the floor. Okay, hopefully that was helpful to you and thanks for staying
