MostFit would like to welcome head strength and conditioning coach from Drexel university Michael Rankin as a new Master Trainer and member of Team MostFit.
"For years I have wanted to incorporate an exercise that was similar to splitting wood or cutting down a tree. Not easy when you work in the city. The Core Hammer has solved this challenge. I have used sledgehammers in the past but if you work in a facility like mine you do not always have access to your tractor tires. The Core Hammer does not need a tire and depending on your surface you may not need anything at all.
I have found these movements to be especially beneficial for implement sports (field hockey, lacrosse, tennis, squash, and softball). This is a total body coordinated movement that unlike other variations incorporates a tremendous amount of grip work. This can not be simulated with a medicine ball throw or slam. Not to mention it is pretty gratifying to hit something as hard as you can with a hammer."
Coach Rankin will be leading Core Hammer Workshops for fit pros and incorporating MostFit gear into his training protocols. Check out his athlete page and our other ambassadors here.
