What Is Bodyblade and How It Works With Common Exercises

Every once in a while a new piece of workout equipment is introduced to the world of fitness. Some get picked up and stick around while others are forgotten in a couple of months.

Now its time for Bodyblade to take on this challenge and so for it has been doing great.

Taking the fitness world by a storm this simple piece of equipment has been changing how simple how workouts and group exercises are done for all age groups. And it looks like, it could be one of those things that becomes a part of every gym may it be a public or home gym.

So what exactly is Bodyblade, how it works and how could it help you reach your fitness goals?

What is Bodyblade?

From the first look, it really looks like a blade with a handgrip in the middle. A simple piece of equipment that might cause some confusion regarding its use and effectivity.

But it works!

And it works because of RCT which is the key to success of Bodyblade. RCT stands for rapid contraction technology which can be described as rapid contraction of your muscles. In case of Bodyblade exercises, your muscles are contracted up to 270 times per minute.

The flexible blade adjusts to your fitness level which means the muscle contractions vary along providing for best exercise insanity for different users.

Bodyblade is used by driving it back and forth creating resistance from the flexibility of the blade.

By moving your hands around in different positions, all muscles groups are being exercised which means this simple piece of equipment provides for a full body workout if used correctly. Keep in mind, the blade is lightweight and portable. You can use it literally anywhere which makes it a great piece of workout equipment to have at home so that you can use it when you want and where you want to.

Best Bodyblade exercises for beginners

One of the best things about Bodyblade is that it comes together with a DVD and an exercise chart with exercises for different users.

If you are a beginner and new to fitness, it’s best to start off slowly and let your muscles get used to the rapid contractions to avoid any injuries. This also means that you are sticking to relatively simple moves and positions.

About 10 minutes a day is all it takes for a good all body workout. Of course, if you feel comfortable, you can go further and try to build up the speed of contraction as well as the resistance.

Take a look at the video below to see how you can effectively start off with the Bodyblade and how you should use it for the best results even if you are just a beginner.

Full body exercises with Bodyblade

Just how all around your Bodyblade exercises are depends on you. Its all about how active you are with the movement of the blade and what are the positions you feel comfortable taking while exercising with the Bodyblade.

If you follow the exercise charts and DVD instructions included with the blade, you’ll soon find out that a full body workout with the blade is not that hard to get thru. This is also because the resistance adjusts to your fitness level.

This means, that even professional athletes can use it and still feel enough resistance for a good overall body training.

Watch the video below to get a better understanding of what the blade can provide for you if you are looking for a good full-body workout.

Which Bodyblade to choose

There are three types of the Bodyblade, each designed to best serve a slightly different purpose.

It’s important to understand the difference and make sure you choose to use the one, that best fits your body and needs. Therefore you can be sure to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

Bodyblade Pro Kit

As the title suggests this version comes packed with best features and provides for the greatest number of uses. It might seem that most of the features are equal to those of Bodyblade Classic. But it serves a lot better for the elderly users when in rehabilitation setting by frequency enhancing the position sense.

It is also strongly recommended for users with bigger body weight. Plus, it still can be used by those with a relatively smaller body weight.

However, it’s best for those with some experience in fitness, who are able to work with higher resistance without damaging their body.

The other you option you have is the classic Bodyblade

Bodyblade Classic Kit

The classic version of Bodyblade is suited for those, who are new to fitness and are in a fairly good shape.

It has less resistance, therefore makes for a good transition from only going into fitness and getting your muscles used to being active. After you feel like Bodyblade classic can no longer give you the desired results, its time to upgrade to the Pro version.

Just like the Pro and CXT versions, this one too is super light and portable.

It provides for 1 to 22 lbs of resistance which varies by how it’s used. This is why its great for both adult rehab and power training giving you some additional resistance.

And then theres the third option which is the CXT

Bodyblade CXT Kit

Providing a 1 to 8 lbs of active resistance, the Bodyblade CXT is the perfect choice for seniors, beginners and kids, which can be used in rehab, functional training and group exercises.

Active resistance means it adjusts to the user and their fitness level.

Just like Bodyblade classic and Bodyblade Pro, the CXT comes with an exercise chart and a DVD which guides you thru the workout process with this amazing piece of equipment. A complete workout with the CXT can be done in just around 10 minutes. Which makes it a must-have at every home!
