It’s not only athletes who need to stay flexible. Flexibility is important throughout the day - tying shoes, reaching that high shelf, getting in and out of cars - and helps prevent stress and injury.
A gentle warm-up on a bellicon® not only loosens muscles, joints, and cartilage, but also lubricates discs and vertebrae - giving you a wider range of motion. Since most exercises on a bellicon® involve moving your arms and legs in opposite directions or twisting your torso, you’ll be stretching your core muscles from abdominals to chest and strengthening them at the same time.
If you’re into yoga or your workout already includes a lot of stretching, try spending 20 minutes on a bellicon® before your routine. You won’t believe the difference it makes. The gentle bounce cycle relaxes muscles, joints and connecting tissue, making them more supple and less prone to injury. This world-class, low-impact cardiovascular workout is the perfect complement to range of motion stretching, helping to build strength and flexibility. Stiff, sore muscles that cause body aches and pains are gently massaged out.
