On Thursday I wen to my last class as part of the #fitmamasyeg challenge: ViPR HIIT. While I thought ViPR was just the name of the weight, it turns out it is an acronym for Vitality, Performance and Re-Conditioning. If you have never seen a ViPR before it looks like this:
This workout was 100% new to me! It was in the same studio as the TRX class and I kept telling the instructor how much I loved it! It was very challenging even with the lightest ViPR (4kg).
ViPRs come in 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 & 20 KG options. The ViPR is made of rubber and has specially moulded hand grips that you can see in the photo above. According to the official site:
You can also place your hands through the ends or use the single handle on the other side for a grip. This allows maximum variety and comfort for clients to lift, shovel, push, pull, rotate and throw while integrating the whole body through movement at the same time.My thoughtsI loved it! I am considering getting a ten pass for the studio just to go to the class more regularly. The ViPR didn't feel cumbersome and the total body workout was intense. I also tend to need new types of workouts to keep me motivated.
