If you could only choose to use one piece of exercise equipment for the rest of your life, what would it be? Here’s a suggestion: Consider choosing the Body Blade. This new exercise tool is quickly winning over exercise enthusiasts all over the world, and here’s why.
What’s The Body Blade?
The Body Blade is a relatively-new exercise tool that’s meant to replace traditional free weights and exercise machines. It’s basically two (very) flexible “blades” extending from a central handle. These blades undulate back-and-forth very quickly, up to hundreds of times per minute, to provide two-directional resistance.
Traditional resistance training utilizes gravity, where the individual resists the pull of gravity by lifting weights or doing exercises that involve one’s own body weight. This resistance helps build muscle and improve cardiovascular condition.
The Body Blade works differently. Instead of using gravity, the Body Blade uses dynamic inertia. Instead of resisting gravity (which only pulls the weight down), the individual will need to resist the dynamic inertia produced by the Body Blade’s two flexible ends.
That means resisting not just one direction (down), but two (back and forth) — and hundreds of times per minute! The motion fatigues muscles to failure very efficiently and with less time, allowing more sets and more muscle groups can be worked in a single workout session.
Exercises With The Body Blade
One of the simplest exercises you can do with the Body Blade is to hold it with both hands vertically in front of you. A few shakes, and the Body Blade will begin to flex back and forth on its own. As the resistance increases, you use your core muscles to hold the Body Blade in place — a workout that’s tougher than it sounds!
Muscle-building exercises, such as dumbbell curls, are easily replicated with the Body Blade, as well. Simply hold the Body Blade in the positive (bicep curled) position, and give it a few shakes. Hold the same position as the resistance increases. At hundreds of contractions per minute, you’ll likely work out your bicep in mere seconds.
There are too many exercises to list down in a single article, and more and more uses for the Body Blade are being invented every single day.
Who The Body Blade Is For
The Body Blade is for everyone! It’s a great tool for anyone who wants to lose weight, or build muscle, or grow stronger, or even simply improve their posture. There are thousands of ways to use the Body Blade, and you’ll only need to discover a few to create a complete workout regimen with it.
It’s also great for the elderly fitness enthusiasts out there, who need lower-impact exercises to stay in shape. Individuals undergoing physical rehabilitation also benefit from the easy, low-impact, adjustable resistance that the Body Blade offers.
Currently, there are 5 types of Body Blades to choose from. From the one that provides the least resistance to the most, they are: Body Blade Lite (for rehab), Body Blade CXT and Body Blade Cardio (for aerobics), Body Blade Classic, and Body Blade Pro (for serious workouts). Be sure to choose one that’s right for your body type and fitness level!
