A lot of people know stretching is an important part of a complete workout but they rarely stretch. Some people think it takes too long or they don’t know how to stretch properly. Whether you’re playing sports, chasing kids, or just trying to lead an active lifestyle, stretching can help you move better.
The Precor Stretch Trainer is designed to isolate your muscles so you can stretch correctly and more thoroughly than stretching on the floor. Stretching from the seated position allows you to keep your pelvis and knees in place and better stabilize your back. Using your own body weight and by gently rocking backwards in the pivot seat while holding onto the handlebar, you are able to achieve a full stretch in much less time than stretching on the floor.
Depending on your level of flexibility, you may only be able to perform a stretch for 10 seconds or less, but with consistent use, you will see improvement. Many people are able to work up to 30 seconds or more for each stretch, allowing them to see great improvement in flexibility and range of motion.
The Precor Stretch Trainer has eight specific stretches that will help you see drastic changes in how your body feels.
Benefits of the Precor StretchTrainer:
You’re likely to see an increase in flexibility, range of motion, and coordination after consistent use as you perform the stretches for your lower, mid, and upper back, hamstrings, glutes, hips, inner thighs, shoulders, and quads.
Consistent stretching can increase your range of motion, from being able to touch your toes again to helping increase your running speed. Regardless of your fitness goals, flexibility and an increased motion can help you feel like you’re performing at the top of your game.
Many individuals who suffer back pain have inflexible hamstrings coupled with weak abdominal muscles. This causes the pelvis to tilt forward when standing, decreasing the curvature of the spine and resulting in added stress. Since the Precor Stretch Trainer keeps your pelvis in place and stabilizes extremities, you are able to relieve stress on the spine.
The Precor Stretch Trainer can also help arthritis sufferers and anyone with a degenerative joint condition. As your joints move, the amount of synovial fluid in the joints increases while the thickness of the fluid decreases. This process enhances the lubrication in the joint and can even delay the onset or progression of arthritis.
The next time you visit the gym, stop and try the Precor Stretch Trainer. Just look for the Gold Bow.
