For professional athletes, a healthy, strong body is worth its weight in gold—and injuries can be catastrophic for their careers. One injury, and they can lose a whole season—or worse. Fortunately for pros and amateurs alike, they have Redcord.
So what is Redcord? Created, fine-tuned, and practiced by physical therapists for over two decades, Redcord is the most efficient and accessible suspension exercise method available, incredibly beneficial for preventing and treating injuries. Redcord includes the widest-ranging collection of suspension-based exercise equipment, training programs, and treatment methods in the exercise industry. In fact, many medical and fitness professionals use Redcord to achieve greater, measurable results, and the Redcord NEURomuscularACtivation (Neurac) courses, which are specially designed education system for doctors, therapists, and other medical professionals, are an excellent way to help prevent and treat injuries.
According to the official Redcord website, Redcord.com, the phases of the Redcord Neurac program are thus:
“1. Individual mapping to identify weak links in muscle interaction by doing exercises in Redcord.
2. Adjusting exercises to each individual.
3. Developing exercise programs with certain exercises that reestablishes body function, prevent further injuries and to confirm the effect on Neurac treatment. Retests are done to confirm the effects.
4. Continuation of the exercises to prevent future injury.”
Numerous professional athletes have found great value in the Redcord Neurac program. Runners, cyclists, gymnasts, and a slew of other pros stand behind Redcord. Sandra Bassot, distinguished swimming coach in Italy, remarked, “I have been using suspension training with Redcord for almost two years, and the improvements I have seen in the performance of all athletes are surely not only based on water training. I’ve recognized an improvement in all high technical parts of stroke cycles, starts and turns that are mutually dependent on proprioception and power.”
Bassot isn’t alone in her enthusiasm for Redcord. Says Suzann Pettersen, LPGA golf player,
“Core training is important for us golfers. I have experienced that myself. Redcord has helped me, and I never enter the course without having trained with Redcord. Redcord is now actually the only form of strength training I do.”
Italian world-class skier Lucia Recchia shares her enthusiasm about Redcord: “Training with Redcord allows me to do a higher level of exercise, in less time with little pain. Using Redcord, I feel the vast improvements in my coordination and functional training that specifically helps my competitive edge during the winter alpine season. I also enjoy training with Redcord more than conventional strength training because Redcord allows me to utilize many possibilities for the upper and lower body by inventing and improvising with different and challenging exercises. Weight training is generally boring, monotonous and does not functionally translate to my athletic or everyday needs. With the help of Redcord, I can work on the muscles that help me during competition, but also that help me with my daily life and routines; and now that the Redcord Mini is available, I am able to take my training routines with me wherever I go!”
If you’re looking to get rid your body of painful movement patterns, establish normal muscle coordination, or simply get in better shape, Redcord may be the perfect program for you. Check with a medical professional to find out if Redcord is right for you.
