WHAT IS A GRIP 'N' RIP DISC?
There are times when you won’t have the opportunity to throw discs at medium to maximum distances, prior to the days play. Or there may not be a driving range available prior to a tournament. This is where the Grip ‘n’ Rip (GNR) disc is an advantage.
GNR disc is a stand still (static stance) warm up implement used by disc golfers to warm up their muscle groups, related directly to disc golf. Golfers hold the GNR disc just like they would a regular golf disc, and then go through their normal throwing motion or routine. The grip plus the GNR disc towel provides resistance to really work those muscle groups safely. Adding more towels provides more resistance.
Going through your normal shot routine vigorously, with no resistance at all, could lead to unnecessary stress on tendons, ligaments, and joints in your shoulder, elbow, and wrist.
A good warm-up aids in:
Preparing your body for aerobic activity,
It gradually revs up your cardiovascular system by raising your body temperature and increasing blood flow to your muscles,
Helping reduce muscle soreness and lessen your risk of injury,
Helping you to mentally prepare.
Once you find a warm up routine that works, repeat it as habitually as possible.
