  • Universal Strength Apparatus Suspension Trainer

    Hey Gang -

    I recently got to test out a new suspension training system called the Universal Strength Apparatus. I wrote a review and put a video of me working out with it on my blog this morning. Click the link to check it out - as always, your comments are appreciated!

    I was first introduced to the USA when I was a member of the BodyWeight Culture forum. Unfortunately I don't own a USA, because they're awesome. Thanks for the review.
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

      Glad you enjoyed the review! The USA is relatively cheap compared to some other similar pieces of equipment.

        Looks like a fun (or annoying) do it yourself project... I'll find out soon...
        I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

          So you're gonna try to build your own version?

            I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

              Loved the review. I have to say that I think the "ladder" idea is probably the most novel change with regards to suspension training setups. Personally I just built a... cheap/minimal suspensions system out of lashing straps and lengths of sch-40 PVC because of your Australian pullups article.
              Many thanks for that article as well because I'm 6'5" 237lbs and can't do more than one real pullup. It's also nice to get the additional core strengthening while working up to real pullups.

                Yeah the ladder is pretty sweet.

                Glad to hear I inspired you on the DIY pull-up setup for your Australians! They are a good core exercise for sure!

                  Got mine a few months ago. Planning on doing a review of my own, but in my research on the USA, your review definitely pushed me towards the purchase. I absolutely love mine.

                    Thanks for this, Al. Posts like this make me feel good about throwing your name out there for the newbies.

                    I built a TRX-like system out of 550 cord (parachute cord), some carabiners, and some handles. I love it.

                      Glad I was able to help with your decision. And glad that you're happy with it!
