The FLEX Set is multifaceted and can be used for rehabilitation, strength training, general fitness and prehabilitative exercises. The set includes three FLEX band strengths, a door anchor and a training manual. The portable and lightweight set is perfect for travel and is suitable for all fitness levels.
FLEX bands or Therabands are used by athletes, general workout enthusiasts and senior citizens for improving strength and function, for general fitness to build stability and to increase range of motion, as well as to assist in injury prevention, active recovery, physical rehabilitation (helps in recovery from torn MCL, torn ACL, knee replacement, patella and meniscus rehab) and restoring muscle and joint functions. FLEX bands also have been proven to improve functional movements of older adults and improve athletic performance.
The FLEX set comes with three color-coded resistance levels: light, medium and heavy, which are slightly longer than usual Therabands or Flat bands (180cmx15cm) and have been designed to be as flexible as possible.
Most people will use a powerband FLEX under the direction of a physical therapist or as a method of strength training at home. Exercise with Powerbands Flex requires proper posture, warming up and stretching prior to use and knowledge of what exercises to do. Proper use of these systems for resistive exercise provides both concentric and eccentric resistance on the muscles, improving strength, range of motion and muscle balance.
Powerbands Flex are versatile, portable, and inexpensive. They’re made of natural latex rubber. Color-coded progressive resistance gives at-a-glance documentation of progress from one level to the next. They’re easily recognized by the colours – yellow, green and blue. Advancing through the sequential system of progressive resistance provides positive reinforcement and feedback for gauging results.
Powerbands FLEX are the perfect tool for resistance exercises. The elastic resistance has been proven to increase strength, mobility, and function, as well as reduce joint pain. Evidence-based exercise programs utilizing powerbands FLEX help rehabilitate injuries, improve functional movement of older adults and improve athletic performance. They are an alternative to weight training. Flex bands help build and tone muscles. The benefits of portability, weight, size, and cost of elastic resistance over dumbbells and other weights are unquestioned.
