When you do the majority of your workouts at home, convenient fitness is one of the biggest components. If it takes too much time to set up, too complex to use or needs to many things, chances are you won’t do it. Enter the LifeLine USA Jungle Gym XT (JGXT) for $99 and those three things are easily remedied.

You don’t need a ton of things to improve your fitness levels as evidenced by the fact that you can get a long way to strong using just body weight. Add in the JGXT and fitness now is a lot easier to come by in the convenience of your home.

I really like this piece of equipment for home exercise. It can be set up quickly, is incredibly easy to use and all you need is you to make it work. That is a check, check and check for the three things you need for home fitness that I’ve already mentioned.

Think of doing a moving plank with all of the exercises the JGXT allows you to do, and you’ve got a heck of a core strength fitness tool at your disposal. You can push, pull, squat, hinge and lunge your way to improved fitness. There are also videos on the LifeLine USA website that show you how to use it as well.

I’ve previously written why I am a big fan of the Jungle Gym XT because of its value, portability and effectiveness for at home fitness equipment.

You can squat, hinge, push, pull and plank (every way possible) yourself to a much stronger core, and that’s a good thing. It is a great stand alone fitness tool as well as the perfect complimentary component to bod

The red strap tips don’t stay in place and slide down. You can’t just turn around from pushups to pulling without changing hands and switching the handles.

Bottom Line

For at home or outdoor fitness, its hard to beat the value, effectiveness and convenience of the Lifeline USA Jungle Gym XT. Since I’ve used the JGXT, I’ve become a big fan of dual attachment points when it comes to this kind of fitness training. I still think the TRX system is an amazing piece of equipment that can help you get plenty strong.

I just prefer being able to move the straps around independently. Particularly for pushups, I find that pretty wide angle between the handles hammers my pecs into oblivion really well, helps me feel my core more and allows me hit the muscular mark that much easier.

If you’ve got one of these, and would like to learn how to use it and you live in the Silicon Valley, drop me a line and we can set up a time to put together one of my Done For You Fitness Programs.
