The DVD kicks off with an instructional segment and practice drills that help you master the Bodyblade and maximize your results for strength, balance, cardiovascular fitness, body sculpting and burning calories. Physical therapist Bruce Hymanson, inventor of the Bodyblade, walks you through the art and science of why the Bodyblade is so effective, and then is joined by world renowned personal trainer Michael Carson for workouts that focus on movement, muscle activation and raising metabolism through the Bodyblade training system - a combination of continuous movements, functional strength and flexibility.

  • Trains the body from the center outward.
  • Train for resistance or endurance.
  • Easily customizable to your fitness level.
  • Improves balance, coordination, strength and muscle endurance.
  • Tone and sculpt your muscles quickly and automatically in a short fun workout for people of all fitness levels.

  • Tone and sculpt your body with 270 muscle contractions per minute of over 610 muscles in your body!
  • Calories are burned in the muscle during exercise so why isolate the muscles when you can train them intelligently, accurately and automatically.
  • Bodyblade burns more calories in a shorter period of time because it trains hundreds of muscles at the same time with thousands of contractions per minute.

    Bruce Hymanson is the president and creator of Bodyblade. As a registered physical therapist for the past 30 years, he originally created this product for his clients who were recovering from injuries. To fit their needs, he created a low-impact exercise product which allowed physical therapy clients to see results without using a wide range of motion. His products are now used by hospitals, health clubs, physical therapy rehab centers, and sports teams.


    Pre-Workout Warm-Ups

    The traditional view of stretching before workouts has changed radically in the last few years. It is no longer recommended to stretch all of the major muscle groups before a workout. Instead, we should concentrate specifically on the muscles that we will be working out during our training session. The paradigm shift lies in the way we view our warm up. Instead of stretching tight muscles, we are encouraged to gently warm them with a light exercise which slowly yet effectively engages muscles and tendons.

    Stretching without warming up the muscles is believed to cause the muscle to actually tighten, which is the opposite effect of what is desired. Many experts use the likeness of a rubber band or taffy to describe the muscle. Stretching out a cold muscle would likely be met with an unyielding tension just like a cold rubber band or piece of taffy. It sets up the muscle for a greater possibility for injury. It is therefore necessary to prevent injuries by ensuring that muscles are warm and ultimately flexible.

    Most experts agree that a muscle warm up specific to the areas that you are going to target during your exercise routine is the goal, but a basic heart rate raising activity is effective, too. Choose some form of cardiovascular exercise to engage in for at least 10 minutes as you begin your workout.

  • jumping jacks
  • a light jog
  • walking
  • biking
  • jump rope
  • Another option is to simply choose a lower intensity version of your workout to target a specific muscle area. The goal is to increase joint lubrication, blood flow and muscle temperature so that the muscles are able to stretch and function optimally. Once you choose the activity according to your workout, do several light repetitions of it before beginning your regular workout regimen.

    Targeted Warm-Ups

  • Running: Start out with a walk or light jog.

    Upper Body

  • Shoulder Circles: Rotate shoulders one at a time toward the front. Repeat both sides with shoulders rotating back.
  • Arm Circles: Standing with arms extended to the sides, circle them at shoulder height. Start with 10 each front and back. Create large and small circles for different sets.
  • Wall Push-ups: Place hands on wall shoulder width apart and legs together. Keep your body straight as you bend your elbows. Continue until your nose almost touches the wall and repeat. You can increase the intensity by placing your feet farther away from the wall. This exercise puts less pressure on the arms than a usual push-up, yet is successful at engaging the back, chest and arm muscles.
  • Tricep Dips: Find a stable bench chair and position your hands with palms side down about shoulder length apart. Slowly bend at your elbows and lower yourself down until you arms are at a 90 degree angle. Always keep a little bend in your elbows.
  • Bicep Curls (with light weights): Begin with feet about hip width apart. Hold light weights or soup cans in front of you with elbows bent and waist high. Bring weight toward the shoulders. When you lower the weights, keep a slight bend in the elbows. Repeat for three sets of reps.

    Lower Body:

  • Walking: Still touted as one of the best exercises you can do, it's also one of the easiest and most relaxing. Use it for a warm-up for any fitness routine.
  • Squats: Imagine getting up and sitting down in a chair. First use a chair to simulate the motion of getting up and sitting down. Don't sit all of the way, just tap your bottom. Eventually you can perform squats using the same motion without the chair.
  • Easy Chair Leg Lifts: Sit in a chair with legs positioned just slightly apart. Bend the knee and lift the leg up. Exhale as you lift. Inhale as you return to the starting point with your both feet on the floor. Perform this exercise by alternating legs.
  • Wall-sits: While leaning against a wall, bend your legs at a right angle like you are sitting in a chair. Keep your abs contracted while holding the position for 20-60 seconds. Stand up to take a short break as needed and then repeat.
