Stroops Slastix Double Gun – Explode with lower & upper body power. The Double Gun builds maximum force and range of motion created by the upper & lower bod. With the Stroops Double Gun, fighters can leverage the power of full-body resistance (from the hands and feet) to gain upper- and lower-body training. For fighters, this added resistance translates into faster and more explosive hands, quicker movement in takedowns, technical self-correction, and stronger offensive and defensive movements in the round. With the Slastix pulling from all four extremities, the body is required to work even harder to balance – especially when exerting the amount of force required for striking. Athletes use the Double Gun to gain the most out of upper and lower-body sports performance activities such as throwing and catching medicine balls, lifting weights, sprinting, or performing plyometric drills. The Double Gun provides added resistance to every move you make, which results in maximum strength-building benefits from your workout.

More commonly known for striking the Double Gun is proving to be very successful in the grappling world as it relates to hand control and takedowns. The wrist straps fit comfortably around the wrist & thumb to provide resistance if/when you practice on your own, or in a team environment. The straps around the feet fit over or above the shoe around the ankle. Resistance levels increase the further from the anchor you get as to teach the athlete to FINISH the move.
When using the Double Gun in a takedown the athlete’s first step is resisted to give the sense of immediate depth into the opponent. Soon after the extension of the hands, and with the resistance pulling from behind it works as a self-correct tool training the arms & elbows to stay inside throughout the movement. Continuing do drive through the opponent, both legs are now under resistance until the athlete has completed the takedown.
In the sense of an escape, the Double gun is terrific for Stand ups. Clearing the hands and getting the feet out from under the athlete seems to be easier for some over others. The sense of being restricted immediately engages the mind to move with quickness & power to avoid the opponent gaining control of his hands.
By using this product in "reverse" or with the resistance in front, many wrestlers are using the Double Gun to fight head/hand control & provide resistance to a sprawl. All in all the Double Gun is attached to the furthermost parts of the body to incorporate as many muscles as possible. Whenever the body is stretched, or has resistance from an outside object the greater the amount of force from the center of the body to create movement. Athletes using the Double gun in typical exercises for sport will feel the movement throughout the body, not just the hands or feet.
How It Works:
Simply attach the four independent Slastix from the foot and wrist cuffs to an anchored object or training partner behind you and perform MMA drills such as striking, standups, takedowns, clearing the hands, or engaging in offensive and defensive moves. The wrist cuffs fit comfortably around the wrist and thumb and can be worn easily inside gloves if desired. The foot cuffs should be worn over or above the shoe around the ankle. As you move further from the anchor the resistance level increases, which boosts your ability to continue to drive through the opponent and finish each move. (Note: It is recommended to wear a shirt while training).
