Gorilla Bow: Ancient Bow Reimagined into A Versatile, Mobile Gym Equipment

I confess. I am not so much of an archer and so when I first picked up a bow and arrow, I realized that you do need some pretty serious core upper body strength to work this range weapon. It was nothing like Hollywood movies where the protagonist just picked one up and becomes a marksman right away. Not even close. Anywho, understanding the strength a bow can offer, a start up leverages on the shape of this ancient weapon to create a versatile and effective fitness equipment which you can bring anywhere. Gorilla Bow, as it is called, combines the structure of a bow with a powerful resistance band technology to enable users to work on their back, chest, arms, shoulders, and even legs. It is almost like having your own gym, but without the need to confine yourself in a mirrored wall, air-conditioned room with a dozen of sweaty dudes.

Man Bag Fitness Sandbag Kind of Make Gym Equipment A Non-necessity

Captain America Barbell Plates: Super Soldier Serum Not included

The truth is, Captain America aka Steve Rogers is not any different from Tony Stark. While Tony Stark propels himself to superhero status with advanced exoskeleton suits, our dear patriotic Captain was no more than a scrawny kid who got pumped with experimental super solider serum that turns him into a person with superhuman strength. So in a way, he’s like Tony: a cheat. The only difference is, he can’t simply shed his ‘suit’. Anywho, that’s sci-fi fantasy and all fitness nuts know that there’s no super soldier serum, nor are there any shortcut to bulging muscles and super strength. It takes hard work, but as consolation, you can at least work your way, in a traditional manner, with the soon-to-be-released Hero Elite Series Captain America Barbell Plates by fitness equipment maker, Onnit Labs (officially, ‘The Onnit/Marvel Hero Elite Series of Fitness Equipment‘).

The Strike Tech Sensor comes in a pair, worn on the wrist either wrapped in wrist wraps or inserted into a purpose designed wristband, much like the fitness band.
