The AquaLogix Bells have a unique bell shape that creates drag in all directions for optimum upper body resistance and intensity during your aquatic workout.
Durable, Heavy-Duty Construction
Each pair of AquaLogix Bells is made in the USA using a hard, thick plastic that will not dent or ding like foam dumbbells. Because they are plastic, the AquaLogix Bells feature a unique type of buoyancy known as "neutral buoyancy". They neither float nor sink, allowing the swimmer to maintain total control over the exercise. Unlike buoyant or weighted resistance, neautrally-buoyant workout gear allows for total body conditioning and muscle-specific exercises.
Indented hand grips make for comfortable extended training sessions.
Several Levels of Resistance
There are 3 resistance levels of the AquaLogix Bell available:
The red Cardio Bells are a low resistance bell perfect for beginners, rehab patients, children, seniors or unconditioned adults. The small rail of the Cardio resistance bells creates less surface area and friction, and allows for the least resistance through the water. These are also ideal for sport-specific workouts calling for fluid, smooth, quick or continuous movements. This includes underwater tai chi, boxing, karate, stretching and yoga, baseball, tennis and more.
The black Cross Trainer AquaLogix Bells are a medium resistance bell meant for teenagers, adults, athletes and select physical therapy patients. The medium size rail allows for a moderate level of resistance through the water.
The blue Sculptors are a high resistance bell with a large size rail that delivers significant resistance through the water. They are ideal for well-conditioned adults, military personnel, police and firefighters, and sports specific athletes looking to build strength and boost peak performance.
Instructors looking to carry many pairs of bells should also consider the Hydro-Fit Instructor Bag, a 15 x 15 x 36 rectangle mesh bag for proper drainage and natural drying of your AquaLogix resistance bells.
Pair the AquaLogix Bells with the AquaLogix Fins to combine a high-intensity upper body resistance workout with similarly intense lower body exercises. These neutrally-buoyant ankle resistance fins create drag utilizing rounded plastic "fins" attached to the ankle strap. Both lateral and forward-backward movements will create a fair amount of resistance in the legs, engaging the glutes, thighs, hips, and lower back.
If you like the AquaLogix Bells, you should also check out the Hydro-Tone Bells, another neutral-buoyancy resistance bell with a large, square shape that provides an equal amount of resistance all around.
The AquaGear Opinion
These bells really are neutral buoyancy; they neither sink nor float. This lets the swimmer dictate the outcome of the exercise rather than fighting buoyancy like with traditional aquatic dumbbells. The AquaLogix Bells have finger indentations for added comfort and a firmer grip. These resistance bells are easier to stabilize in shallow water, with your feet firmly grounded. If you plan on taking them to a deep water workout, AquaGear.com recommends using a flotation belt.
The Bottom Line
With three degrees of resistance available and buoyancy-neutral design, the AquaLogix bells create the perfect aquatic alternative to a traditional dumbbell workout. Bring maximum intensity to your upper body training with a pair of AquaLogix resistance Bells from AquaGear.com, today!
