Jordan Fitness, the functional fitness specialist, has introduced a range of weightlifting Technique Boxes to their product spectrum to complement the Jordan Fitness Elite Bar and their Competition/Training Discs.
The Jordan Fitness Technique Boxes give a range of starting points for learning and training Olympic Lifts, Modified Lifts and Olympic Pulls. The possible height combinations available with the new Technique Boxes provide a means to effectively teach full lifts using a variety of progressive heights. The Technique Boxes are available in different sizes and easily adjustable to allow users to alter the height when learning the pull sections of the Clean and Snatch.
The Jordan Fitness Technique Boxes let the athlete to start each repetition from an equivalent position to their hip, thigh, knee or shin and gradually progress to a full repetition from the floor. The new Jordan Fitness Technique Boxes are also ideal for beginners who are using “hang” positions. Working from 'hang' positions can reduce the chance of fatigue among stabilising muscle groups, such as the lower back, which can potentially prevent the athlete from executing such a complex full body movement. With the adequate support provided by Jordan's Technique Boxes, a lifter can be confident in dramatically improving their weightlifting ability.
Made from wood, the Jordan Fitness Technique Boxes are stackable and available in four different heights: 5.7cm, 15cm, 30.5cm and 38cm high. They have a total height of approximately 90cm and thirteen different height combinations are available. Each Technique Box has “stoppers” to prevent the weight bar from falling off when placed on the box; this design feature is to help protect both the weight equipment and the user. The Technique Boxes are 91.5cm in length by 51cm in width and have a “working area” of 76 x 43cm to enable clean user movements.
Jordan Fitness’ Technique Boxes are a key piece of equipment within any training facility utilising functional and effective Olympic Lifts for the strength and conditioning of athletes or non-athletes alike.
