ISOmetric Health and Fitness with Bullworker

Life

Sep 11

A few years ago I setup the website for Bullworker UK who were distributing this excellent exercise device called – The Bullworker. It’s a stretchy muscle builder and really does work (honestly!). They sold a few different exercise devices all designed using the principles of ‘isometric exercise’: Bullworker, Steelbow and a German product called the Exxerwatch, which has been upgraded with some cosmetic changes and christened it the isokinator. Based on the same exercise principles pioneered by Gert Kolbells BULLWORKER.

FACT – Muscle deteriorates at a rate of 1% per annum when you are over 50 years old!

People generally refer to fitness when comparing sporting activities and use this as a social yardstick however quality of life, health, strength and mobility are the keys to personal well being.

Cardiovascular vascular activity is vital exercise of the heart muscle and this can be initiated through brisk walking and skipping as effectively as using a static cycle, treadmill or stair climber. Just a 30 minute brisk walk three times a week will have immediate and long lasting effect. The rest of the body muscle groups can be exercised with isometrics.

From 8 to Middle 20’s

Levels of fitness, strength and physical performance increases steadily from early puberty through early twenties and then levels off. Your level in this age group should be the coordinated development of all your major muscle groups. Avoid the temptation to overdevelop the showy muscles or just those that improve your performance in your favorite sports.

Compare measurement to the left and right hand sides of your body, many people are lopsided in their development, now is the time to correct this tendency. A high level of fitness, once achieved and maintained through a regular training program with Bullworker this level of fitness through their thirties into their forties.

Late 20’s and 30’s

The body is now matured; it is your personal choice to determine how long you want to retain your personal fitness level. Without regular exercise fitness levels will begin to deteriorate at a steady rate and many people begin to show signs of growing old prematurely. Within two or three weeks of using Bullworker you make a bra break through regaining previously lost fitness levels, after which the sky’s the limit.

Even if you have never been particularly athletic, you will still attain an increased level of fitness and your progress in the first weeks will be spectacular. Continue to train at your own pace and you will quickly match and outclass friends, family and sporting rivals.

40’s Plus

At and around the age of 40, our physical capabilities start to decline and the only sure path of slowing down and reversing this decline is by maintaining your level of fitness. Research has shown that with adequate attention to fitness, performance levels of the 40 year old can be maintained well into the 60’s and 70’s.

If you have been keeping fit all your life you know how it’s done and Bullworker will keep at your per peak. If you were fit, get back into the habit. No need to go full out; train moderately and regularly, without sweat, stress or pain.

Over 50’s

If you have never made much of an effort to keep in shape, now is the time to do so regardless of age or fitness level. Follow the instructions, do not overexert yourself, find your own natural pace and development, add exercises only when you are ready.Try to workout everyday, concentrating on circulation training and deep breathing to promote stamina and boost energy levels.

No matter what your age or condition , in just a few minutes a day Bullworker fitness training help you attain a higher level of personal fitness, keeping you stronger, more powerful and mobile years after your contemporaries have become old.

Brain Function and Isokinetic Training

A healthy body promotes healthy brain function. Force training (isokinetics) actually causes bioelectric brain activity and Professors Herholz and Hollmann discovered that blood flow of the brain increased when using physical force training. In the case of a resistance perseverance sport such as running, using a load of 25 Watts the brain blood circulation increased by 15%. Using isokinetic training with 100kg of resistance the the brain blood flow increased by 40%. (Comp. with Kiselkova/Dobrev thus in sport Biol9, 61, 20,4). R.

Research from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute announced in 1999 (world on Sunday 46/1999) that physical training promotes the growth of nerve cells and improved memory capability. Studies showed that sport training increases the memory ability and training tests on animals showed an increase in the number of the nerve cells in the brain by 2.5 times.

Cardio effects in the past and present

In the past we have been told by fitness equipment manufacturers and personal trainers that only stamina training such as running or cycling would improve the capacity of the heart muscle.

Controlled interval running or pedaling on a home cycle made the heart work at an increased rate increasing training stamina over a period of time. Only people exercising within a specific training program did it right, increasing their stamina and heart rate to cope with the demands of everyday life.The jogging fad is no longer in vogue leading to the consensus that “Blind” running is no longer considered to be a safe cardiovascular exercise.

Meanwhile, scientific research into the effects of power training has discovered that power training provides superior impulses, resting and recovery for the heart muscle. These effects are discernible through pure logic: In spite of a healthy heart, some people occasionally experienced a “piercing pain” in the heart. Following a visit to the family doctor a circulation ointment such as “Recorsan” is often prescribed for rubbing on the left side of the chest. This ointment warms the skin and deeper muscle tissues causing them to expand, thereby promoting improved blood circulation through the coronary blood vessels. This would normally stop the piercing pains – a medical solution for the problem.

ISOMETRICS – the Gut Buster

Using ISO METRICS the abdominal stomach muscles become taut, defined and stronger as never before.

The stomach and bowels fill after eating, pushing weak tummy muscles forward creating a physical “dome”, appearance; taut abdominal muscles counter this action keeping the stomach flat.

Muscular workout of the abdominal muscles using the ISOKINATOR increases the fat burning effect during exercise which continues with the “afterburning effect”. (Comp. with Poehlmann, de Marèe,hard, Rost iost in “Sport Biology”004, 501) 5 T)e bas

emetabolitaratec rate increases by 5% for 48 hours and the body temperature rises by 0.5°C, so that without physical or mental awareness, the fat burning effect continues for hours after exercising.

Why your Body Massages its own Stomach The special exercise routines for the abdominal muscles massage and mill the inner abdominal area like a “deep tissue” massage from a sports masseur. This effect aids the flow of food through the digestive system’s intestines and gut, reducing retained waste and maximising the body’s in take of nutrients. Furthermore, these exercises will help produce a flat abdomen which in itself enhances the digestive process and lessens fat retention.

When a flat abdomen is achieved, the redefined stomach allows you to eat food stuffs that would ordinarily create body fat. Strong, fit abdominal muscles no longer tolerate sluggish digestion (National Institute of Ageing, Dallas, USA).

Redefine the Stomach Bust that gut…a flat toned abdomen with improved digestion is easily achieved using isomotion. The unique abdominal exercises will redefine and toughen stomach muscles.

You only need to train for just a few minutes every second day to see the results.
