Great session, thanks for sharing your ideas, I love that Grappler machine, ashJuly 31, 2008 at 10:32 pm #24276ashleyGuest
The grappler is one of those cardio machines that you just want to have access to all the time, particularly for lower body injured players, I put it right up there with my all time favourite the Versa Climber and of course the Concept II rower, here is a picture of the Grappler taken from there web site, http://www.thegrappler.co.uk cheers, ashAugust 1, 2008 at 5:53 am #24277bris83Guest
to echo your thoughts, it is probably the best ‘machine’ we have at our gym in terms of how it is used by injured players and also as a hypertrophy tool. Worth every penny!April 29, 2009 at 11:08 pm #24279boz84Guest
Hi all in regards to the grappler machine what type of workouts do you use for 1. Cardio workouts and 2. Strength/hypertrophy weight training sessions?
Any suggestions/ideas sample workouts would be great.

Session 1-20 pulls at each level. Rest for 60s. Complete 8 sets.
Session 2-20 pulls at level 6. 1 press-up, 20 pulls, 2 press-ups and so on until you get 10 press-ups. Take the rest where you need it.
Session 3-30s on, 30s off at level 4,6 and 8. Rest for 60s. Complete 8 sets.
You can also use it as a finisher after upper body weight sessions, say do 100 pulls, 200 pulls etc, the combinations are endless!!!
