Bodyblade Classic

Currency: 

Bodyblade® is unlike any other piece of exercise equipment on the market today. Most other systems work on the principle of the user attempting to lift a weighted item or stretch an elastic band. The Bodyblade, however, works on the opposite premise: Once the ends begin to move, inertia wants to keep them in motion and it's up to you to resist. Thus, the risk of injury through overexertion is greatly reduced.

It's easy for eveyone to use, from world class athletes to rehabilitation patients. With a fixed rate of 270 contractions per minute, Bodyblade will help you enhance your power, coordination and overall performance. Bodyblade is great for aerobic conditioning or for developing speed, strength and joint mobility.

Benefits

Bodyblade® is unlike any other piece of exercise equipment on the market today. Why? Because Bodyblade uses low level vibration and inertia to train the body. Bodyblade rapidly changes directions at a rhythm of 4.5 cycles per second, which translates to your body reacting 270 times per minute to resist the forces of the blade moving back and forth. We achieve this using inertia to challenge the body to contract its muscles to maintain balance, coordination, speed and strength.

This rhythmic dynamic stabilizing system of training is not used in any other exercise device as it is used with Bodyblade. Your body becomes the machine and the Bodyblade becomes your exercise partner. The harder you push and pull on the blade, the greater the oscillation or flex in the blade, which requires greater force output from you to neutralize the speed and movement of the blade. You have to start, stop and change directions of your own body while controlling your mass. This wonderful equalizer automatically adjusts to each one of us. The same blade in the hands of two different people will produce a workout perfectly matched to the individual’s size, strength and muscle endurance.

Since Bodyblade is not dependent on gravity, we can assume any position with the blade relative to our body or with our body relative to the planet to train standing, sitting or lying on a flat surface. Unlike a device using gravity—weights, springs, pullies, tubing and other forms of resistance—Bodyblade can adjust the force challenge anywhere throughout the range of motion instantly by the user. Best of all, you can never over train your body. As you fatigue, you loose your ability to coordinate the rapid change in direction and automatically stop before you reach complete muscle failure.

Bodyblade® is a tremendous asset to your sports performance because we train movement, not muscle. Rather than isolate muscle, we bring groups of muscles together as a team to perform with greater precision, accuracy and with less risk of injury. Many of the exercises you perform with Bodyblade mimic the movements athletes use in competition, allowing you to train your body to execute moves faster and with greater controlled force.

Bodyblade improves muscle tone.

While the rate of oscillation stays the same, the workout intensifies when the amplitude, or magnitude of the flexing tips, increases. Over the course of just one minute, the ends of the Bodyblade® move back and forth 270 times, and that's 270 times your muscles have to resist the movements. The resistance needed to control the can range from 1 to 34 pounds depending on the amplitude of the flexing tips.

Bodyblade is inexpensive, efficient and easy to store.

Timesaving: Bodyblade's® efficient movements provide a complete workout in just minutes, so you're never tempted to skip exercise during your otherwise busy schedule.

Bodyblade is different than any other exercise equipment.

With Bodyblade® there are no weights or elastic bands that can break. You control the intensity and acceleration of the movement, which makes it safer and more effective than other equipment. Bodyblade® is technically known as a dynamic reactive instrument, which means that it matches the force you put into the and nothing more. As it moves back and forth four and a half times per second, it uses the principles of inertia to stimulate the muscles and make them stronger. The better conditioned the user, the more enhanced the workout. Yet since the user controls the movement, you can never injure yourself with Bodyblade®. All of this is possible due to the patented technology and the inertial exercise principles built into every Bodyblade®.

Bodyblade creates dynamic resistance through basic physics.

Bodyblade® is a reactive, oscillating device that utilizes inertia to generate up to 270 muscle contractions per minute. The laws of inertia state that an object set in motion remains in motion until another force acts upon it to stop or change its direction. You push and pull on the apparatus, which accelerates the and creates a force due to the flex or amplitude of the . The greater the flex, the greater the resistance that is needed by the body to counteract the destabilizing forces delivered into the body. The 's movement therefore requires the user to contract his or her muscles in order to neutralize these forces.

Bodyblade is great for sports training, especially golf.

Bodyblade is designed to improve the communication in the body for better hand eye coordination and position sense. Bodyblade will also improve the core strength which is vital in all sports. Golf is a sport in which accuracy, club head speed and human performance go hand in hand. The list of Pro golfers is long. Visit our professional customers/testimonials section.

Bodyblade burns calories without impact or heavy lifting.

Calorie consumption is difficult to calculate using Bodyblade for several reasons. Varying factors are your age, conditioning level to begin with, weight, mass, lean body mass, and true intensity of workout. Since Bodyblade is a progressive resistance device which ties very closely to the users mass and conditioning, results will vary as would two people running a mile at different paces and conditioning levels.

There are good reasons to do aerobic and anaerobic exercise to help burn calories and lose weight. The burning of calories via aerobic exercise is great for the actual workout, but also for the metabolic changes in your body at the cellular level. A more fit person, burns more calories faster and more efficiently then a sedentary person. The key is to change your metabolism and burn fat more efficiently then someone who does not exercise.

The anaerobic exercise with Bodyblade or more strengthening part of the workout will increase the muscle size to some degree and provide more fuel for the furnace. The more muscle working, the more calories are burned even at rest. The combination of more mass and more power capability, plus a better more efficient metabolism will change the way you look and feel.

Bodyblade is an excellent aerobic training tool.

You control the intensity of the workout and how much aerobic work you do. As for weight loss, no product alone will guarantee weight loss. You must combine the proper nutritional program with exercise. Aerobic fitness will change the way your body's metabolism functions. The more aerobically fit you are, the better the cells process energy and burn calories. The more sedentary person will store food as fat while a fit person will take the same food and use it for energy. The key is to challenge the body with Bodyblade, tone the muscles, strengthen the muscles and change your metabolism.

The proprioceptors (receptors located in the joints, tendons, and muscles) provide feedback to the muscles, joints and brain. The muscles then produce rapid concentric (shortening) and eccentric (lengthening) contractions, which result in highly skilled adjustments in the control of movement. This muscle fiber recruitment results in increased muscular strength and endurance. It also increases the joint's mobility and range of motion, while protecting the user's joints. It also enhances coordination, flexibility, posture and the efficiency of muscle function.

By varying the positions of the body or direction of the flexing blade, Bodyblade can target specific muscle groups throughout the body. Bodyblade trains movement through muscular teams and patterns rather then isolated single plane muscles. This makes it a valuable tool for rehabilitation, performance sports training and functional wellness. Coaches have found that Bodyblade helps athletes increase their skill levels and improve their performance. Research has shown that using Bodyblade improves the individual's ability to reproduce joint motion more accurately and repetitively. Since it can be utilized at any angle and position, Bodyblade can mimic the movements in a particular sport and provide the required specificity of training. The resulting muscle fiber recruitment will also encourage increases in strength that are relevant for the particular sport. Bodyblade's use of inertia also helps the body to become more efficient at agonist (one side of joint) / antagonist (opposing side of joint or action) activities as it promotes a better balance between muscle acceleration and deceleration on both sides of the joint. This leads to less trauma and injury, and less downtime for athletes.

The key to Bodyblade's success in functional rehabilitation, performance training, and overall fitness is proprioception, power, stabilization, balance and coordination. Physical therapists have discovered that restoring normal movement patterns and contractions to muscles that control joints seems to assist painful areas. This includes extremities immobilized in a cast or brace which can be exercised with Bodyblade without initially requiring an excessive range of motion. This unique, oscillating action makes it an ideal choice for treating acute injury, chronic disability and post-surgical rehabilitation in a variety of environments and task-oriented activities.

Bodyblade tends to normalize the way in which the joints function, eliminating the potential for imbalance that can occur with other exercise systems. It also permits a high efficiency of motion, producing the greatest rehabilitation gains with the least amount of effort.
