Body Blade

The Most Efficient Core Power Training Tool Ever Designed!

 What is a Body Blade?

Body Blade

BodybladeŽ 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 BodybladeŽ, 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.

In addition, BodybladeŽ will directly impact whatever sport you play by specifically targeting those muscle groups used in a particular sport. Many of the exercises you perform with BodybladeŽ mimic the same movements athletes use in competition, allowing you to train your body to execute moves faster and with more force.

How does it build muscles?

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 BodybladeŽ move back and forth 270 times, and that's 270 times your muscles have to resist the movements. The resistance needed to control the blade can range from 1 to 34 pounds depending on the amplitude of the flexing tips.

How does BodybladeŽ create resistance?

BodybladeŽ 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 blade and creates a force due to the flex or amplitude of the blade. The greater the flex, the greater the resistance that is needed by the body to counteract the destabilizing forces delivered into the body. The blade's movement therefore requires the user to contract his or her muscles in order to neutralize these forces.

Huge number of exercises!

Inluded with every Bodyblade: 1 FREE Exercise Poster + 1 FREE Exercise DVD

One of the best things about the Body Blade is the seemingly endless number of exercises you can utilise to improve everything from core fitness to shoulder strength.

 

 Which Model Body Blade is right for you?

Sportstek supplies 3 different models of Bodyblade. They are PRO, Classic, and CXT. This is generally the order of weight/difficulty, thus each model can have slightly different applications and suit different uses. You need to determine which model is best suited to your requirements based on the tables below. Click 'Pricing' to buy bodyblade.

Rehabilitation using the BodyBlade®

As a rehabilitation professional, your goal is to provide a safe environment to improve the way your patients or athletes respond internally as well as to the gravitational forces we live with. The elements contributing to this process:

The compilation of these elements brings us to our ultimate result -- function. Rehabilitation is the process we perform that brings about function without causing harm in the process. Bodyblade, in it's unique application, contributes to all the elements necessary in rehabilitation.

 

STABILIZATION:

The human skeletal muscles total 640. After you strip away the larger prime movers and most familiar groups such as the Pects, Lats, Delts, Biceps, Triceps, Traps, Quads, Gluts, Hamstrings, Gastroc's and a few more, what are you left with? A lot! The majority of the ensemble cast of movers in the body are for support, and preparation for exquisite movement in the body. The ability to sequence motor activity requires a progression of muscular involvement from the very deepest muscles proximally to the surface and most distant muscles distally. The smaller stabilizers are "King" in the human body. When they are working properly, the entire system will perform well. If the smaller and more strategic muscles are slow to react, weak or communicating poorly, the process of degeneration, or sudden injury is imminent.

STRENGTH:

Dura Disc

Developing strength is critical in the protection of the bones, ligaments, and the organs of the body. Strength is important to overcome the earth's gravity so we can successfully move about. The body maintains a primary and secondary restraint system. The primary restraint system is the muscular system. It's job is to protect the secondary restraint system which is the connective tissue or ligaments that provide stability to the bony system. Rehab training must strengthen and protect the primary system of muscles to avoid risking injury to the secondary system. Bodyblade provides resistance training for both Type I and Type II fibers in the muscle. Also known as slow twitch (Type I) and fast twitch (Type II). Shown here using in conjunction with the Dura Disc

 

ENDURANCE:

The ability for a muscle or group of muscles to perform accurately over a sustained period of time is critical. Fatigue means breakdown of communication, loss of control, poor response and poor stability. Bodyblade works to enhance the muscles to perform more accurately over a longer period of time resulting in better posture and performance.Shown here using in conjunction with the Wobble Board

POWER:

The training of the muscular system for strength alone is not sufficient. Strength should always be part of rehabilitation but on it's own will fall short of the goal.. Power is the measure of force and the distance of those forces over time. Speed is the key element when the discussion of power is introduced. Bodyblade trains the body to react rapidly to external stimuli and communicate accurately and quickly within the neuro-muscular system.
 

BALANCE/COORDINATION:

Balance is so important because it is the essence of good strength, endurance and power combined. When you have good balance or control of the body, you also have coordination of movement. The ability to balance the shortening and lengthening contractions of the body with co-contraction of the joints at just the right time contributes to wellness and stability. An elderly person trying to raise themselves out of a chair is more likely to fall from imbalance and loss of coordinated movement than weakness. The more we can provide instability in training to expand the "inner zone of control", the more we move the outer zone "loss of control" away from us. Bodyblade challenges the body to make very rapid and accurate movements to improve ultimate function for our patients.

Bodyblade is a perfect choice for: all forms of rehabilitation including pre or post operative exercises, Spinal Cord Injuries, Stroke, Group Training Classes, Home Exercise Programs for continuity from the clinic, or any number of indications for Sport Specific Functional Performance Training.
