WHAT IS REDCORD?
Redcord suspension creates fun and challenging exercises for physical rehabilitation and sports performance enhancement. Performing precise movement patterns in unsteady ropes is the foundation of Redcord suspension exercise. By leveraging your own body weight as resistance, you can do hundreds of movements (bridge, plank, squat, pull up, etc.) from just one single device. Each exercise demands total body awareness and accurate muscle control to help you build a lasting core foundation and a stable body in less time than conventional training methods.
Redcord suspension takes physical therapy, fitness and performance training to the next level by introducing slings and bungee cords to off-weight and support your body throughout each exercise. Similar to floating in a pool, this “zero-gravity” environment helps you facilitate neuromuscular control of the movement, without the interference of pain and compensation. You can apply higher resistances (i.e., more body weight) by releasing some of the pull of these bungees. You can also add more instability and neuromuscular challenge by shaking the ropes, a technique called perturbation.
Redcord suspension has become the global leader in neuromuscular based therapy exercise. With 25 years of research, development and utilization by physical therapists around the world, Redcord suspension now comprises the most comprehensive collection of suspension exercise equipment and training solutions available in the industry. In fact, there are over 100 hours of live continuing education coursework (CEU and CEC courses) to help physical therapists and other health and wellness professionals achieve superior outcomes. There are also more than 80 published research studies involving Redcord suspension to support its role in physical therapy, fitness and performance training.
Redcord suspension teaches you how to train smarter, not harder. It incorporates key stabilization movements into your existing training program. These exercises demand high neuromuscular effort, but without the need for high mechanical load, to help you build exceptional core stability and muscle control. There are bungee cords to assist and guide you throughout the routine. This allows you to focus on the quality and control of each exercise, before introducing more challenging movements, higher resistances and sport specific training.
FOR "EVERY BODY"
Only with Redcord suspension can someone of any age, condition and strength level safely and effectively do suspension based exercises. It creates a unique weightless environment to help bridge the gaps between injury, health and optimal fitness. In conjunction with other training methods, Redcord suspension can get you better and help keep you active and pain-free across your lifespan. Whether you are attempting to perform the simplest physical tasks without pain, or you are preparing for an Olympic event, Redcord suspension offers real solutions to address your needs and achieve your goals.
