Best Workouts to do on the Go

Is there anything worse than not being able to reach the gym? Maybe it’s due to travel or a late night at the office, but you will feel the need to exercise eating you inside. That’s why at POWERHANDZ, we created the one-of-a-kind POWERPACK. We’ve included not just our gloves but also our other fantastic products that will allow you to take your workouts to the next level. Best of all, it comes in an easy to carry bag that can go with you anywhere you go! Never worry about missing out on a gym session again with this incredible fitness goldmine at your fingertips. If you find yourself with some time to kill while on the go and are unable to make it to the gym, try these awesome exercises with our POWERPACK to give you the perfect solution.

T Push-Ups with Striker Gloves

Push-ups are one of the easiest but most impactful exercises you can do. There is a good reason nearly every routine out incorporates this classic into it. But how do you improve something that is so perfect? By doing T push-ups with your strike gloves of course. To master this technique, follow these simple steps:

  • Lay in the classic push-up position
  • Push yourself up
  • As your arms are fully extended twist your body left
  • Lift your left arm off the floor
  • Twist your body and roll onto your side so you are only balancing on your feet and right hand
  • Stretch your left arm up
  • Return to the starting position and repeat switching off each side

It might sound exhausting but we promise that it will give you an amazing workout. As long as you have some room to do it, you won’t regret it.

Ankle Jumping Jacks

Our resistance bands are quickly going to become your favorite workout tool. They are simple but so effective that it’s a crime not to carry them with you at all times. With a nearly endless amount of ways you can use them, all you need to do is choose a technique and run with it. Our personal favorite for the fitness nut on the go is the ankle jumping jack. All you need to complete it is:

  • Place the band around your ankles
  • Stand in a squat position
  • Jump while moving your legs outwards than back inwards
  • Move back in the starting position and continue

This can be done anywhere you go. In an apartment, hotel room, a park, any location you find yourself in! All you need to complete this is the POWERPACK resistance bands

Knee Tucks on Fitness Sliders

With a pair of our fitness sliders, you are ready to do one of the best exercises imaginable; knee tucks. This simple yet exhausting technique will help you build muscle, get in some cardio, and give you one hell of a workout. All you need to do for this is:

  • Put your feet on the sliders and get into a planking position
  • Pull your knees up to your chest while keeping your core tightened
  • Push your feet back out into the standard planking position
  • Continue moving your legs too and from your chest until you complete the set

Once you master this, you’ll be able to do it anywhere. All you need to do is find the room to stretch out and you are ready to go. This is the perfect way to get in some great exercise if you a stretched for time.

Supermans with Strike Gloves

This is an easy way to get a quick workout in without having to worry about getting to the gym. In fact, it’s one of our favorites. This is the perfect way to stretch your muscles and give you that fantastic high that comes with a great workout.

  • Lay flat on the floor
  • Raise one hand above your head while keeping your legs on the ground
  • Lift the leg on the opposite side at the same time
  • Repeat switching off arms and legs

This is the perfect way to warm up for a workout and give yourself some easy ways to stretch those muscles. If you are looking for a fast and easy workout, this is it.

Life is constantly in motion and sometimes it will prevent you from being able to get to your gym.

Traits of an NBA All-Star

It takes more to be an NBA all-star than just being a great basketball player. Don’t believe us? Then listen to this story. A teenager always dreamed of playing basketball so he went out for his high school team. Sadly, he didn’t even make it through the first round due to having poor skills. Rather than giving up, he trained his heart out for an entire year and the next year made the team. That teen was Michael Jordan and this year of training gave him the tools he needed to become the greatest basketball star of all time.

At POWERHANDZ, we have helped basketball players hone their skills to master levels for years and have seen what it takes for them to go all the way. If you looked at every single NBA All-Star under a microscope to see why they are so great, you will find these traits everyone single one of them.

Drive to Get Better

There is nothing worse for an athlete, basketball player or otherwise, to say “Good enough.” If you are just content with how you are now, you will never even come close to being great. Michael Jordan himself has said “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” No matter how many times you win or lose, you need to have that desire to get better. Always look to improve yourself regardless of what happens. If you have the drive to improve your game and get better, you have one of the traits needed to be an all-star.

Confidence

They say that fortune favors the brave, but what they don’t say is how confidence also is favored by fortune. You need to be able to walk onto the court and say, no matter who you are playing against, “I can win and I will win.” You have don’t just believe you can win and will dominate them on the court, know that you will. Don’t mistake confidence for arrogance, nothing will destroy you more than that. Being confident doesn’t just give you a cool head, it also has been proven to improve an athletes game drastically. Having proper confidence is exactly what you need to be one of the best. When you train with our weighted gloves, your hands will feel lighter when you take them off which will also elevate your speed and confidence.

Team member mentality

No matter how great a basketball player is, they will never reach the top without a willingness to be part of a team. Phil Jackson, a legendary NBA coach, and player, has said “The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” All-Stars don’t try to do it all on their own or focus on themselves, they focus on the team. Being able to allow other people to help carry everyone to victory and recognizing their strengths is key to making it to the top. If even the best players in the game are willing to put their team first and not let their ego go to their heads, you can too.

Competitiveness

All-Stars rarely play pick up games just for fun. Their strong competitive nature prevents them from doing something “just cause.” If you want to be the best, you more than likely have a huge competitive streak. Never being able to be second best and always wanting to be the best there is will give you the will to be a champion both on and off the court. It’s a good thing too especially if you learn to harness that drive and focus it when it matters most. Wanting to be the best at everything you do gives you that fire to make it to the top and there is no more useful tools than that. Let it fuel you and propel you to the stars.

A drive to improve, competitiveness and confidence plus team member mentality are all it takes to be one of the best there is. Don’t just look at Michael Jordan, look at all the best basketball players and they will have all of these traits in common. Best of all, these steps are easy to follow.

We don’t just treat you like another athlete at POWERHANDZ, we treat you like family. We make sure all of our gear will give you the most out of your workouts and take your training to the next level. We have an amazing basketball pack that will help any player surpass their own limitations with the game.

Enhance Your Football Training With POWERHANDZ

Another Super Bowl is in the books and we’ve already got our eyes on the next one and helping athletes train with purpose so they can get there in 2020. As Dan Gable, an Olympic Gold Medalist has said, “Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” Our family at POWERHANDZ wants each and every athlete to become a champion and the best version of themselves. We want them to take their training to the next level to dominate friend and foe alike, which is why we have created our incredible weighted football gloves. After crushing just a few workouts, an athlete will notice the benefits in these categories.

Catching

Santonio Holmes made the greatest catch in Football history as he caught the ball with only seconds left on the clock, giving the Steelers the honor of being the first 6-time Super Bowl winning team in NFL history. As a football player, you want to the next Holmes, which is exactly what we had in mind when creating our gloves. The anti-grip qualities of our gloves will make catching the ball more difficult so that an athlete will have more confidence when competing in a real-time game. In addition, the weight will strengthen hands and arms, making it easier to grab the ball due to increased strength in a player’s fingers. Training differently with POWERHANDZ gear will ensure that athletes everywhere always have the edge they need on the competition.

Throwing

Considering how important throwing is in football, a quarterback should be sharpening that skill on a daily basis. There are a number of great drills for strengthening arm muscles, but how about making the task more difficult? Our gloves are specifically designed to make it more difficult to throw the ball. If you can master throwing under more difficult situations, it will be easy without our gloves in a big game.

Build hand and arm strength

Any football player worth their jersey needs to have hand and arm strength. Not only do players need to be strong enough to hurl the ball across the field but also they need to make sure they will be able to hold on to the ball for dear life as other players try to wrestle it away. Players also should be able to grab the ball out of an opponent’s hands and turn their own play against them. All of this is done through hand and arm strength.

Increased hand speed

You see a fumble on the field and everyone freezes as the ball falls to the ground but before you can grab it, your hand is lost in the mountain of players diving onto it. How could this happen? Simple, your hands weren’t fast enough to reach the ball in time. Training your reflexes is extremely important when playing football. This skill is trained through repetition and focus and can be enhanced when you train purposefully. Our gloves are designed for your reflexes to work just as hard as your muscles during training. Good luck to anyone who tries to get that fumble before you do, they’ll need the reflexes of the Flash to beat you to it.

When you train with our gloves you aren’t just training like everyone else, you are doing it at a higher level. Our high-quality equipment will help you improve your hand speed, throwing, catching, along with strengthening your hands and arms. Together, these will transform you into one of the best players on the field, no matter what team or league you are playing for. If you are ready to dominate the competition, get your gloves today!

At POWERHANDZ, we want every single athlete we work with to be the best they can be. We don’t just make gear that specializes in football, but many other sports including basketball, baseball, MMA, golf, and more. We want you to be the next legendary athlete that people aspire to be like, so let us help you take your training the to next level today.
