WILD BILL I USE IT TO DO A LOT OF DIFFERENT EXERCIESES WITH IT

broker45 Most people probably haven't ever heard of eccentric exercise, which is the type of exercise these bars provide. Eccentric, or "negatives" as bodybuilders call them, are basically the lowering portion of an exercise. For instance, if you lift a weight over your head and lower it, the lifting is the "concentric" part, and the lowering of the weight is the "eccentric" part.



Without a doubt, this is one interesting tool you can use that will provide eccentric exercise for your wrist muscles. So what's the big deal with eccentrics? Well, there have been studies showing that when people with tendonitis conditions do just the eccentric part of an exercise, they get better. Problem is, there are tennis elbow studies specifically showing that if you do just the concentric (or lifting part) only, you get better too (Martinez-Silvestrini 2005). Therefore, eccentric exercise, as this tool most surely provides, will help tendonitis, but its far from a "magic" cure, and you can achieve the same results as doing "concentrics" with a light dumbbell.



Perhaps more importantly though, people with tennis elbow need to know that resistance exercise is just ONE part of what you need to be doing to totally get rid of your tennis elbow.



Studies on tennis elbow and eccentric exercise, such as the one I quoted above, had patients ALSO do stretching exercises and I know of no studies that have had people with tennis elbow do just eccentric exercise alone and they've gotten better. Therefore, suggest people with tennis elbow check out this tool, as well as books like Treat Your Own Tennis Elbow for a well-rounded program. Good luck.

E. S. Brown I am a 48-year old male who has experienced more than my share of tendinitis throughout most of my adult life, particularly the tennis elbow variety. The positive reviews for this product are for real. A few months ago, I developed moderate tendinitis from guitar playing. I was doing the standard tennis elbow exercises for a few weeks with only slight benefit. I did some research on tendinitis on the web and came across the FlexBar. I ordered 2, the red and green. Within 3 or 4 days of using the red FlexBar, my tendinitis was remarkably better, such that I was able to play again. About a week ago, I noticed my other elbow was a little sore, and after a few days it was apparent I had tendinitis in that elbow too. I grabbed my red FlexBar, and did a few gentle sets. About an hour later, I noticed my elbow was significantly worse - this can happen when beginning exercises for tendinitis. The pain calmed a bit a few hours later, and I did a few more gentle sets. The next day - several more gentle sets. 36 or so hours later, I literally am pain free.



I am going to make it a practice to work a few sets every other day or so with the FlexBar, and hopefully ward off any future attacks of elbow tendinitis. For tennis elbow sufferers, you do not need anything more than the red FlexBar. The heavier strengths - the green and blue - are for other exercises.



If you have elbow tendinitis, don't think about it, just get the red FlexBar - now.

Mojo I had recurring tendonitis in my right elbow. I've been using these bars to do the Tyler Twist (look up this exercise online - there's a good article in the New York Times about it). Started out with the red bar and worked up to the green bar. As far as I'm concerned these bars have completely cured my tendonitis. I still use them to keep up the strength in my arms and prevent the tendonitis from coming back.

cwhedon This is a GREAT product! Easy to use with several exercises you can do from the comfort of your chair!

I use it several times daily and already have felt a difference in my arm and wrist strength as well as some relief from arthritis in my hands!

Charles I bought two of these Theraband FlexBars. First x I got one in green (the correct choice por moi.) Then I bought the blue which is bigger in diameter and the most resistance. I still use the green... plenty. Through playing jazz guitar (and always lots of pianistic 'stretchy chords') I've LONG been dealing with a tendonitis scene that I barely managed to keep reasonable. This is both the elbow and tennis forms of tendonitis plus my shoulders some, actually. This tool (with any regular use) really helps me out. I've tried so many things with limited success. Forearm weight training and a Powerball gyroscope to build up muscle strength and take the stress off the tendons ---> these do help. But truly not like the FlexBar has managed to do. These two Theraband exercises (doing them correctly is HUGE) have w/o doubt been THE most effective remedy yet. It's clear enough that the exercises very directly impact things for progressively greater health and overall strength to offset the continued strain of how I use this bod. I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who knows a little discipline. Sticking with it as a maintenance thing is key. It will fo' sho' address your problem directly and make a difference in turning around your symptoms and begin the healing. Distinct Bonus: this tool travels well/ easily in luggage. So, no excuse not to bring it with you. Get one and start to know some honest/ authentic relief!

Rittenhouse The item was exactly as promised, thanks for helping to spread the ability to strengthen and flex while assuring less chance of injury for our young high school golfer!



THANKS!!

GreenVt I've been battling an ongoing issue with mouse/tennis elbow for about a year. The doctor determined I had moderate injury to my elbow suspected to be from repeated use of mouse at work with my arm being over extended. I changed my ergonomic configuration at work, Ultrasound, physical therapy and different elbow braces. Nothing worked after some research I purchased the Red Thera-band. Started with 3 sets of 6 reps of the recommended exercise to address tennis elbow.

Now up to 4 sets of 25-30 reps after using for over 2 months. I'm no longer in constant pain and have regained about 75% strength and still getting better with each passing week.

Be patient with this product follow the instructions for the proper exercise this product really does work. It can help stregthen and heal an injury that's not too damaged requiring a more aggressive treatment plan.

Jason T I have tendonitis in my right arm caused by "Overuse of a palm down lifting technique"



I've been using the Green Thera-Band Flexbar for about 3 weeks now and have seen a significant reduction in arm pain.

It was so bad I couldn't pick up anything, even a book, glass of water, or anything really more than the weight of my arm.



Today I have most of my arm's strength back and am able to function much better, I'm sure with more time and constant use my symptoms will dissipate further.

This worked where other excersizes and a cortizone shot had not.



One thing to note, seems one needs to "keep at it" or else the pain comes back. Probably because I am not fully healed. Just because the arm may feel better doesn't mean you should skip the next exercise.



I have been doing a 15 rep 3x a day and things seem to be getting better.
