5 Things You Didn’t Know About Ripstix®

Whether you rock out at a Pound class nearest you or you’ve decided to download our streaming workout videos (get your Backstage Pass here!) for an at-home Pound sesh, you know that this hot drumming workout would not be what it is without our special Ripstix!

These exercise drumsticks have been specially engineered for your Pounding pleasure, but here are a few things that you may not know about these babies:

  1. The name “Ripstix” was born out of the concept that these are drumsticks that get you ripped.
  2. At ¼ lb, they are twice the weight of a standard 5B Drumstick and slightly shorter in length. After first designing the workout with regular drumsticks, we implemented these design modifications to alter the physics of your arm movement and maximize your workout. These small changes get you burning more calories!
  3. You will pound your Ripstix more than you will ever realize — about 15,000 reps per class! (For more about how Pound tricks you into losing weight, click here).
  4. Neon Green isn’t just for fun. Studies show that color is important for the brain to detect motion and neon green is one of the most detectable and easily processed colors! Thus, neurologically, using these green sticks helps you detect your own movement (motion distinctions) as you work out.
  5. They’re made of durable plastic and can go through airport security* – so take your own pair of Ripstix anywhere!

Just be prepared to explain to the TSA that you are a rock star and the look of confidence-boosting amazement that follows.
