Compilation training, created by physical therapist Bruce Hymanson, consists of three pillars: multiple-muscle activation, multiple-joint participation, multiple-body segment interaction (proprioception). The results are better balance, coordination, joint/body communication, circulation, function, wellness and performance. To read more about the Bodyblade, visit us at www.Bodyblade.com
Tips to get the most out of your Bodyblade® workout—
•Keep a light grip on the Bodyblade with wrists in a neutral position. Avoid bending or flexing the wrist.
•To hold the Bodyblade in a wide side position (wide side facing the body), the center ridge is located between the thumb and forefinger.
•To hold the Bodyblade in a narrow side position, the center ridge is located in line with your knuckles.
•To flex (oscillate) the Bodyblade, move (drive) the handle back and forth in a rapid, repetitive motion. The Bodyblade flexes at a constant rate. You can increase the intensity by changing the force applied through the handle. When you are correctly flexing the Bodyblade, your hands will appear calm and move no more than 1 inch in either direction.
•Start standing exercises with soft knees and a wide base of support, feet facing front and positioned slightly wider than hips-width apart. Add challenge by gradually narrowing your base of support until feet are about hips-width apart.
•Work up to performing each exercise for 30 to 60 seconds.
•Make sure you have enough space around you to safely use the Bodyblade, about 5 feet on all sides.
