Squat flex and jump manual or the gym?

Hey peps, as the title says it, should i invest 297usd in squatflex, which gets you a free copy of jump manual and some other bonuses and is about 900 bucks in whr i live, or do i go for a monthly gym which costs 139 bucks per month or another gym which costs 230bucks with a pool facility?

Jacob is giving away free jump manual nwo if u purchase the squat flex. still, i'm not sure which is more worth it. If squat flex is really good as it seems

thx

How about hanging yourself?

It's much cheaper and it elongates the spine, making you taller. Cool stuff!

If they gave you both of them free you'd still be getting screwed over.
Relax.

so a squatflex on sale would cost you $891?

297 * 3 ^^

normal price would be, 497 * 3 = 1491..

I think if you didn't have any access to a gym at all, or any kind of training equipment, your time would be much well spent on sprints and depth jumps than on SquatFlex.

I'm willing to bet that if you take two identical guys and train one with the squatflex and one with sprints and depth jumps, the plyo guy would win in this competition. And it would be for no money and safer at the same time. Sprints will actually build "traditional" strength if you ask me and the adaptations would be much more specific to the jumping.

i'd go with the sprint/dj+reactive/bodyweight route too, but nonetheless, squatflex can provide progressive overload, so, if i did have one of those pieces of shit & nothing else, i would probably use it until i hurt my back with it. loool.. but that doesn't happen in the real world, how could i not have access to a gym or buy 300 lb of plates & a bar?

sprints are the best movement known to mankind.. all you need is some level-7 once in a while and you'd turn into a freak.

Or you could overload the sprints going uphill or downhill, doing bounds (overload), or running with a weight vest or even a backpack of some kind if it's really tight on your body.

well right, but barbells, db's, banded overload, chained overload etc, is alot less risky than downhill sprints/overloaded bounds/shock/high drops etc.. so it's nice to be able to have some form of sustained tension lower risk training available... when i was in bodyweight only mode, the drops were killing me.. bodyweight only training was fun, but i needed drops to really make those strength gains, just got really intense... but ya it's doable.
