HELPING YOU GET STRONGER SINCE 2004

The BGR (Suspension System)
Posted By Scott Bird
Looks great. The BGR (Bars Grips Rings) is a suspension system which combines the usual straps with rings and a chinning bar. A little video will show you what I mean :
Perfect for travel workouts, or any time you’re without either rings or a chin-up bar. The BGR (Bars Grips Rings).

NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

We also discuss a number of training-related books, videos & pieces of equipment (there's a full list here). If you're looking for the books I'm checking out personally, swing by Goodreads. And to see the various ones we've recommended over the years, swing by the Strength Store.

Incidentally, if this has got you thinking about grabbing one for yourself, swing by the SttB Strength Store. Massive range.

Over to you. Drop us a line on Twitter, or add a comment below. Cheers.

NB : if you love talking about strength-training as much as I do, you might also like to check out the Straight to the Bar Daily. A regular dose of fitness-focussed discussions, absolutely free.
