WOSS Tornado Pulley Suspension Trainer

Despite having a DIY rig here at the house, I decided to get a WOSS due to the positive praise they have received here and also because I am staring down the barrel of possible TDY's and deployments, so the idea of a "gym in a bag" sounds appealing.

I decided on the pulley system since I am pretty familiar with the standard 1 & 2 strap trainers. The pulley adds some definite difficulty to stabilizing through the exercises and also adds in the extra seesaw movement. You don't have to use the pulley if you don't want to, as there are some movements that I prefer not to have it. The single strap makes dips a little more of a pain, but not a huge one and I knew this going into it.

Construction:
Solid stitching and components. I have no fear of it coming apart, even if I use a weighted vest or backpack.
Setup:
Easy enough Andy could figure it out in a minute or two, despite crippling dementia. The door anchor works very well and holds solid.
Size/weight:
Fits in its bag like a charm. I will have no issues throwing in my ruck, overnight, or deployment bag. Total weight is maybe 2 lbs.

Overall: A great addition if you travel or want some minimal equipment that gives a good variety or training options.

Hmm I see ...what kind or ''routine'' are they going to use? Can you post some pics of the ''training'' sessions?

Slick video. They have a hip harness like Donny Thompson uses with bands for inversion if you look closely. http://www.gravityforcetraining.com/tablet/index.html
