Last month we launched our bellicon ACADEMY program. The bellicon ACADEMY offers a variety of training options to teach anyone interested in educating others and sharing the joys and benefits of the bellicon exercise regime.
Have you ever wondered why the police will test sobriety by asking people to touch their nose with eyes closed?
Well, there is a scientific reason for that, which is called “proprioception”.
This term comes from two Latin words: proprius, which means one’s own/individual, and capio, from the verb capere which means grasp/sense. The combination of the two forms “proprioception”, basically the sense of the body in space: its position, movement, and acceleration.
Do not allow your Achilles Tendon to become your Achilles' Heel!
The Achilles tendon is one of the longer tendons in our body, stretching from the bones of our heel to our calf muscles. This tendon allows us to extend our foot and point our toes to the floor.
Close-chain rebounding, the perfect low impact training for your body
No doubt when you get close to a bellicon you cannot resist it: you need to jump! And like a kid you try to jump as high as you can. But, did you know you can get so many health benefits rebounding with your feet never leaving the bellicon mat?
Here at bellicon we call it “close-chain rebounding”, allowing for a low impact workout: feet stay on the mat and just the movement created by gravity provides so much good to your body.
Strengthening your upper body, especially the shoulders and back, will give you the solid posture important for aesthetic appeal and to prevent back pain even when you're not working out. Sure enough strong arms and shoulders can also give athletes like runners an essential boost of speed, and a solid upper body can help them maintain balance.
Remy Draaijer from the Netherlands joined bellicon Home and put together a great video workout at the coast line of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Many of you may know him from other video workouts he did in the past. This one is about our posture and feet position.
Do you want a High Intensity Interval Training workout but do not have a lot of time for yourself? Follow Fayth’s new bellicon Circle Tabata style video and get a proper circuit training in only 10 minutes!
This workout is inspired by bellicon Circle, a specific training designed by the bellicon Academy: typically, it is performed in pairs at various bellicon stations set up circularly.
