Queenax™ of the Week: 4D PRO® Superhero Workout

Train like a superhero, challenge your core control, and empower your movement! The 4D PRO® bungee fitness trainer allows you to leap further, fly higher and be bolder with your workouts. The elastic training system reduces stress on your joints while increasing total muscle work by reducing rest time between loading and unloading phases of movement. Equally important, it’s fun and allows you to take your training to new heights. 4D PRO is a natural fit with Queenax: it easily connects to the Queenax™ Training Bars, and the open space beneath the frame allows for considerable freedom of movement.

This 4D PRO Superhero workout includes six movements to elevate your fitness (smiles guaranteed). Perform each movement for one minute back to back. Rest for two minutes and repeat circuit.

V-Sit

 

Training goals: Determine if 4D PRO is set-up correctly. Experience dynamic core control.

  1. Sit in the 4D PRO with one belt behind your back and the other below your bottom. Most users will require 2 red lambdas per side.
  2. Lean back into a v-position, holding on to the lambdas for support if needed.
  3. The lambdas should not be fully stretched. If they are, add an additional lambda on each side.

Hopping Push-Up

 

Training goals: Core control, play.

  1. Start in a push-up position with belt around your hips.
  2. Begin hopping up and down, ensuring four points of contact with each landing.

Flying Push-Up

  3. Land with four points of contact and repeat.

Sprinter

 

Training goals: Lower body power, coordination, play.

  1. Position 4D PRO around your hips.
  2. From a sprinter start position, run forward and drive one knee to leap, keeping weight forward into the belt.
  3. Return to starting position and repeat.

Eagle

 

Training goals: Core control, confidence booster.

  1. Set arms in a T-position with a tall, neutral spine and the sleeves around your upper arms. Most users will require only one red lambda for this exercise.

  3. Repeat.
