super system has several major advantages over other exercise bands
and strength training products on the market...You will love Bodylastics!
The Bodylastics strength training system has an impressive track record. It's design is similar
to the one currently used by hospitals and clinics for rehabilitation.
Throughout history it has been scientifically proven that the only
way to change the shape of a muscle and make it stronger is to lengthen
and shorten it against resistance. The thing that makes the Bodylastics
system so wonderful, is how similar it is to using weights or machines,
for strength training exercises.
The advantage of the Bodylastics super system is that you can use a number of different elastic bands. This means that you will be able to create the right
amount of resistance for every level of strength. Our unique-clip
system allows the user to vary the resistance in a snap so each
muscle group can get the maximum workout without feeling overloaded
or under worked. And Bodylastics is complete! -- one product
-- one price -- all strength levels. We encourage everyone to
compare us to the competition. Children, teenagers, baby boomers,
the elderly, men, women, athletes, models...This product works for
For the average cost of one personal training session or one night
out on the town, you can have an amazing strength training system that
not only works every part of your body, but also packs away easily
in a one square foot travel bag. Strength training should be affordable
and within the reach of everyone. We believe that!
One of the Greatest advantages of Bodylastics is that it's truly
portable strength training. It weighs under 2lbs. (TWO POUNDS)! It can be carried
absolutely anywhere! This mighty mite is perfect for
the traveler who wants their health club quality exercises without
going to a health club (that's time consuming, getting ready, driving,
parking, signing in, getting a locker, working out, waiting in line,
then trying to get back to your hotel or home again...) Problem
more clanging and banging! Bodylastics is clean quiet resistance.
It does not make any noise - none. The only noise that you will
hear when you use the product is your own struggling and breathing.
What does that mean in real life? That means that Bodylastics is
perfect for the new mother or father that does not want to wake
the child. It is perfect if you live in an apartment - you won't
disturb the neighbors. Even better, if you like to exercise in front
of the television, you will actually be able to hear it.
training can help you to look better, function better and feel better.
Here are 10 reasons why you should start strength training today:
training can help prevent muscle loss. Adults who do not strength
train can lose between five to seven pounds of muscle every ten
years. While cardio/aerobic exercise will improve your cardiovascular
fitness, it does not prevent the loss of muscle tissue and in many
cases and cause it.
training will increase your metabolism. Research shows that adding
three pounds of muscle increases our resting metabolic rate by seven
percent, and ups our daily calorie requirements by 15 percent. The
average adult experiences a two to five percent reduction in metabolic
rate every decade of their life, so strength training can help make
up for that loss.
training can increase muscle mass. Research shows that doing 25
minutes of strength exercise, three days a week can increase muscle
mass by about three pounds over an eight-week training period. After
that, muscle mass will continue to increase, but results will differ
from person to person depending on how much muscle has been lost
through the years.
can improve your glucose metabolism. Poor glucose metabolism is
associated with adult onset diabetes. Researchers have reported
a 23 percent increase in glucose uptake after four month of strength
training. This improvement is one of the many ways a healthy exercise
routine can fight diabetes.
training can increase your bone mineral density. Studies show that
four months of strength training can result in significant increases
in bone mineral density, which is important because we naturally
lose bone density as we age. In this way, strength training can
protect against fractures, "shrinking" and osteoporosis.
training can help reduce your body fat. The saying that the more
muscle you have the more fat you burn, is true. Increasing your
muscle mass will increase the number of calories that you burn,
thereby reducing the likelihood of fat accumulation. Researchers
have found that strength exercises produced four pounds of fat loss
after three months of training, even though the subjects were eating
15 percent more calories per day.
training can help speed up your digestion. A recent study showed
a 56 percent increase in gastrointestinal transit time after three
months of strength training. This is significant because delayed
digestion puts you at a higher risk for colon cancer.
training can help to relieve lower back pain. Years of research
on strength training and back pain show that strong back muscles
are less likely to be injured than weaker back muscles. In a recent
study, lower back pain sufferers had significantly less discomfort
after 10 weeks of strength exercise for the lumbar spine muscles.
training can help reduce your resting blood pressure. Strength training
alone has been shown to significantly reduce resting blood pressure.
Combining strength and aerobic/cardio exercise is an even more effective
means of improving blood pressure readings. A recent study showed
that after just two months of a moderate cardio and strength program,
participants dropped their diastolic blood pressure (the number
on the bottom which measures the pressure that exists in the arteries
between heartbeats) by 3 mm Hg and their systolic blood pressure
(the number on top which measures the pressure used when the heart
beats) by 5 mm.
training can help to reduce arthritis pain. Studies show that sensible
strength training eases the pain of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid
arthritis. This is good news, because most men and women who suffer
from arthritis pain need strength exercise to develop stronger muscles,
bones, and connective tissue.
