Folding gym bench for athletic training
Who it is aimed at
Well Back System supports the athletes
Athletes dedicate much of their time and life to sporting activity. In order to achieve their goals, whether at the competitive or amateur level, it is necessary that their body is in tip-top condition.
Thanks to the postural bench and folding gym bench from Well Back System, athletes can regularly undergo specific treatments to prevent any injuries and keep the body in tip-top shape.
The benefits of the WBS method for athletes:
Recovery and Injury prevention
- Minimizes the effects of injuries and stress on the muscles and joints, helps the athlete not to skip training sessions and make them more effective.
- It prevents back pain and relapses.
- In endurance sports, where the same position is held for a long time, it helps stretch the muscles and relieve the spine.
- The position with the legs up, in addition to stretching the posterior muscular chains, promotes recovery and improves circulation after training or competition.
- Muscle stretching and postural symmetry have a positive impact on the athletic performance.
- Working with resistance bands from a relaxed position allows for targeted, effective and totally safe treatment.
Sports that have relied on the WBS method:
Trying, every day, to push the limits and the pursuit of movement perfection leads to significant overload of tendons and joints. Being able to train consistently and reduce the number of injuries can make all the difference. For this reason, the athletes of Ginnastica Brixia such as Vanessa Ferrari, Giorgia Villa, Elisa Iorio and the D'Amato twins have included WBS MOTION in their daily training program. As their coach Enrico Casella says in the interview, the athletes use it for two purposes: to avoid overloads and for faster recovery times, and to strengthen muscles from a stretching position.
Football is a sport characterized by sudden sprints and contact injuries where lumbagoes are common. Global Postural Re-education, especially on hamstrings, improves flexibility while reducing the risk of injury. Strengthening exercises with resistance bands on the stabilizing muscles makes the movements more effective without putting a strain on the back and joints.
Cycling, running and triathlon
Positions held for a long time cause muscle retractions, which means that the muscles become shorter and stiffer. In such cases, training with the postural bench and folding gym bench restores postural symmetry, relieving the tension caused by the posture. WBS allows for effective and safe work on the respiratory muscles through exercises with and without resistance bands, with the bench inclined and declined. Ideal for recovery exercises is the position with the legs up, which promotes venous return while stretching the muscles.
In addition to the breathing exercises, unique strengthening training can be done from a prone position on a declined WBS bench, with the correct posture to be assumed in the water.
Tennis is a sport that requires asymmetrical movements and therefore creates muscular and postural imbalances. Compensatory work done with WBS prevents possible injuries, helps with recovery, improves flexibility and core stability for more effective movements. On our folding gym bench, breathing and strengthening exercises are also very effective.
In this sport, constantly sprinting and jumping stresses the body. The height of the athletes also causes more stress on the spine and on the hip and knee joints, making stretching and decompression even more important. The size of the WBS allows athletes over 2 meters tall to use our equipment.
In skiing, the stress on the muscles and the compression on the spine are significant. WBS is the perfect device for the athletic training and recovery of athletes. By improving proprioception, flexibility and postural symmetry, competitive and non-competitive skiers will reduce the risk of injury and have faster recovery times, making skiing even more enjoyable.
On the postural bench and folding gym bench from WBS, specific stretching exercises can be done on muscle chains so as to improve range of motion and reduce the risk of injury. Specific training to strengthen the core and stabilizing muscles makes blows more effective.
Stretching and recovering from muscle fatigue and joint stress makes WBS the ideal equipment for both training and recovery. It is regularly used by the Italy national short track team.
