Just some of the teams using The Difference


“The Difference” was developed in the weight room of The Ohio State University Football program to develop upper body strength, explosiveness and a high work capacity while enhancing an athlete’s hand placement/striking techniques for all positions of the National Champion Buckeyes.



The Problem

There is no training equipment designed specifically to build upper body strength, explosiveness and metabolic conditioning while promoting proper hand placement/striking techniques


The Solution

The Difference is a safe, simple and portable upper body training machine for all ages and all sports
