Wanna get ripped? Try the TRX Rip Trainer
We’ve carried the TRX Rip Trainer on our shelves for a while now but it probably doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It’s a hidden gem of a training tool that will help take your off ice workouts to another level.
Every player is looking for ways to improve hip flexibility, core strength and shooting power but the thing we like best about the Rip Trainer is that it’ll help counteract some of the common problems that hockey players who skate a lot face.
The corrective and preventative nature of Rip Trainer exercises strengthen the low-back muscles, which can be problematic due to the flexed skating posture; and they improve the mobility of the hips, which are often tight from repetitive lateral pushing movements when skating.
