Standard Agility Band
An Agility Band will increase the forces of gravity, make you work on your ground reaction time and increase the amount of momentum involved in a given movement pattern.
As a result of training with bands you will become stronger against gravity, accelerate faster and become more capable of controlling your momentum and deceleration. These qualities will increase your agility.
To hit your target, you have to be able to put yourself in the right place at the right time. To avoid getting hit, you need to be able to get out of there before the attack arrives. This is the essence of footwork and the reality of dictating the pace of the fight, or the match or whatever the job you need to do.
There are two ways to attach an Agility Band; one is via the hip attachment, while the other is the harness attachment. The hip attachment is the basic method and will fundamentally engage your legs. The harness attachment means that your upper body, especially your abdominal muscles become more involved. This increases the effectiveness of the exercise, but also increases the stress exerted on your lower back. It is best to develop a solid base of the hip attachment first before progressing to the more advanced harness attachment.
Attach one end to a fixed object, like a pole, stump or car (preferably parked) using our Utility Strap and carabiner and you're ready to go.
As with all resistance training, effective training is about adaption to a load; you need to be able to execute the movement with the appropriate weight in order to get the benefit. The standard Agility Band will provide sufficient resistance for the majority of athletes to get underway and begin to develop the benefits the band offers.
Enhance your Agility Band training with the Utility Strap
The Utility Strap will enhance the performance and lifespan of your band. Utility Straps enable you to attach bands to anything in seconds, as well as preventing knots and protecting from sharp edges.

2. Product Range
Iron Edge has one of the biggest ranges of high performance training equipment available in Australia. From Nike Romaleos weightlifting shoes, through to kettlebells, Power Bands and weightlifting equipment.

At Iron Edge we employ experienced and qualified engineers to design, test and then source the best manufacturers of all our equipment. Up until 2017 we manufactured in-house, but market pressures forced us to move manufacturing overseas. However we weren’t going to compromise on the quality and structural integrity of our products, so after rigorous research, we’ve been able to partner with some of the industry’s best and most experienced equipment manufacturers. In many ways they are more advanced and sophisticated than our in-house work shop, so you can be assured that the quality of all our products meet the same high standards and are worthy of the Iron Edge brand.
When you promise 'serious training' you have to back it up. Fortunately we do, drawing on our extensive experience dealing with Australia's best coaches, athletes, sports scientists and exercise physiologists. It's enabled Iron Edge to be one of Australia's leading authorities in high performance strength training- and with an educational arm of the business comprised of over ten certified courses launching soon, we plan on increasing the industry standard across the board.
