The FX are aqua training bags suited for a wide range of exercises including squats, lunges, lifts, curls and swings. While the Fluid X Boba is similar to a medicine ball, the Fluid X Tank can be used like a sandbag to train. However, that's where the similarities end.
Made of eco-friendly PVC, the Fluid X gives you the option to fill the bags with air or water up to 20 kg to match your training process. Drained, the bag can easily be stored or taken on a trip.
Training with aqua bags promote instability training, a form of training that engages all of the body's stabilizing muscles for stronger core, performance, and co-ordination.
TheBoba 13is shaped like a ball and holds up to 13 kg of water weight. It can be used for stretching, lifting, and swings, just like a kettle bell or medicine ball. TheTank 15andTank 20are similar to sandbags or barbell weights in the gym for deadlifts, lunges, squats, and other fundamental movements. We recommend beginners new to aqua bags experiment with theBoba 13andTank 15before trying the heavierTank 20, as water weights can feel much heavier due to the balancing element.
While static weights promote greater risk of injuries and are limited to training certain muscle groups, an aqua bag forces you to engage all your stabilizing muscles to balance moving water, re-creating real life sports reactions and optimizing your motor control to prevent injuries. Because aqua bags train instability, there is evidence that this form of training improves physical rehabilitation and maximizes athlete performance, making it great for people at all levels of fitness.
