Flex Trek By Body Bar - Product Review By Witness 4 Fitness

Nancy Ehle, Group Fitness Instructor and Owner of Witness 4 Fitness in Calgary, Alberta Canada reviews the BBFlex-355 bars by Body Bar.

“I love the subtleties in muscle activation involved when you use the bars. The shifting weight of the copper pellets, combined with the flexibility of the bars themselves, causes resistance that you don’t get with traditional hand weights. Muscles work concentrically and eccentrically to move and decelerate… and we don’t often think about the amount of muscle activity that’s involved in deceleration. Core muscles seems to work harder to stabilize as well.

“The bars are very comfortable to handle, and when you adjust your grip to the top end they mimic using walking poles in a sense, without potential ground reaction forces being transmitted through the elbow and shoulder joints. The fact that you can change how you hold them adds an interesting dynamic to the walk and you can feel the difference in movement/muscle activation simply by changing the position of your hands or moving your arms in a different way, such as over your head or out to the side. Of course, you’ll also feel as though you’re your own percussion section due to the sound of the pellets moving, which adds a bit of fun to your walk!”
