How would you like to have a fitness tool that was lightweight, small, portable, and allowed you to work on upper body strength while you're walking, jogging, riding in the car or an airplane, or sitting at your desk? Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it isn't!! I recently learned about Heartflex, and I was so excited when I received a Heartflex Fitness Tool for review.
The Heartflex is a very simple tool that is quite ingenious. What appears to be a short piece of tubing with handles on each end, is actually your key to upper body strength and toning. The piece is made up of 19 interlocking ball and socket parts, and features a comfortable handle at the ends. There are various ways to use this, and each different exercise or "move" works different muscles. The key to using Heartflex is simply repetition! I started out with the basic arms, chest and back exercise. When you start out, it might feel like you're not accomplishing anything. Keep it up for 10-20 minutes though, and you'll realize just how much it is working your muscles! Heartflex lists various exercises on their website, and also sent along a dvd to help with proper technique, and demonstrates how to use it. I recommend watching the dvd before use, just so you have a good idea of what and how it works.
I honestly love the Heartflex, and how it works the upper body-arms, shoulders, chest, back, even the wrists! I can use while walking and get a good arm workout in! Here are some pictures of a couple different ways to use the Heartflex to reach various muscles.
Heart Flex unleashes the time proven benefits of swimming exercise by combining "consistent resistance" with multiple repetitions.
Builds the most strong, dense muscle tissue.
Improves flexibility and endurance.
Burns lots of calories.
|Increases heart rate - burns more calories .....||Heart|
|Using the HeartFlex when walking, sitting, or lying down increases heart & pulmonary rate, lymphatic flow, and burns additional calories. By varying the rhythm and number of repetitions the physical intensity generated can be either gently increased or dramatically raised.|
|Builds strong, firm muscles that work .............||Flex|
|HeartFlex creates frictional resistance which affects muscles through the complete range of motion that is performed. Elite athletes build the strongest, most dense, muscle tissue possible by combining light resistance with multiple repetitions. Muscles formed in this way have consistent power and explosive speed.|
