Gymstick was invented by a team of fitness and health professionals from the Finnish Institute of Sport whose objective was to develop a comprehensive strength and conditioning tool for the whole body. Gymstick is used around the world by a wide range of fitness and health professionals, including: The Gymstick is designed to offer total body resistance training, by exerclses for hundreds of movements and variations and replicating free weight exercises.
However, unlike free weights which introduce load bymstick a downward direction as a result gymsticm gravity, Exercisew provides resistance in virtually any desired direction and in any position.
The instability created by this lever arch also helps to improve joint strength and stability. In order to complete a movement effectively with the Gymstick, more eccentric control is required than when using free weights, which acts to increase the pre-loading necessary for an eff ective concentric muscle action.
This assists in maintaining tendon integrity and reduces the risk of injury. Gymstick has five options for resistance levels, making it ideal for use by people of almost any age or fi tness level. The resistance levels are colour coded as below: In gymwtick personal training sessions the Gymstick offers the advantage of giving the trainer an active role, as they are effectively controlling the level of resistance provided to the client.
With each exercise, this can be increased or decreased according to the intensity required. The trainer receives kinaesthetic feedback, which assists in appreciating the level of challenge that the client is undergoing — more so than with free weights. An example of this is the chest combo series: It is important exercise begin with an appropriate level of tension in the bands.
To do this, the trainer move forwards or backwards to increase or decrease the tension. Both proprioception and balance will be challenged by this exercise photo 3.
The exercsies of using the Gymstick is that several joints and movements are in use simultaneously — and all while completing the humble chest press.
The triceps abdominal curl combo highlights the ability of the Gymstick to combine exercises that normally would not be possible with weighted, gravity-resisted movements. The client grips the bands, while the trainer is securing the stick to the fl oor. Appropriate tension is required before beginning the exercise, therefore communication between the client and trainer is paramount.
This sequence adds an upper body workout to the traditional abdominal exercise. The next series of exercises involves a dynamic component. Building from a simple one-arm chest fl y to a power lunge forward, it requires the body to be able to decelerate with control. The trainer stabilises the stick with both hands in an upright position.

Care needs to be taken with the tension of the bands, because if there is too much tension the client will not be able to control the eccentric phase of the contraction. The client horizontally adducts the arm to the front, ensuring that the elbow stays slightly fl exed. Step forward into a dynamic lunge while adducting the arm.
Controlling the recoil of the bands, bring the body back into the upright position.
