Researchers Discover Nature’s 5 Second
Bone Forming and Muscle Building Secret
Developed by internationally renowned medical expert and professor, Dr. Robert Swezey, MD, the OsteoBall is clinically proven to help build muscles and bone.
The OsteoBall isometric resistive exercise program gives a
full-body workout in less than 10 minutes. The workout is quick, pain-free, non-intimidating for beginners, and most important, highly efficient. The secret is in using partial inflation and the right amount of air pressure. Numerous Physical Therapists, MD’s, Chiropractors, Personal Trainers, Yoga and Pilates Instructors have recommended the Osteoball Isometric Program.
Finally, with the Osteoball you can beat up all exercise excuses.
Q What is Isometric Exercise?
A The answer, like the exercises themselves, is very simple. Isometric exercise is a natural strengthening exercise. It is one of the oldest, and purest forms of exercising.
Isometric exercises go back more than a thousand years -- forms of it can be traced back to the earliest yoga poses and postures. You might be surprised to learn that the inspiration for using isometric exercises came directly from the observation of animal movements in nature. Animals tend to stretch and strengthen themselves using many of the same principles applied by isometric exercises.
Q What are the advantages of this exercising method over other exercising methods?
A Isometric exercises generate maximum contraction in minimum time, producing next to no pain with minimal joint stress. Forget about the fatigue, excessive stress, and the discomfort that accompanies regular exercises. Performed properly isometric exercises usually do not have any of these side effects.
Only a few minutes of isometric exercises per week can help you strengthen muscles, increase bone and muscle mass, and get your body in shape - all without the use of expensive, heavy, or complicated equipment. It sounds almost too good to be true. But it is true and backed by mountains of research and years of clinical studies. These are important reasons why NASA’s astronauts use isometrics exercises to efficiently stay fit and fight against muscle atrophy in even the zero-gravity environments of space travel.
Q What is the origin of this doctor invented exercising devise?
A The inventor of the Osteoball, Dr. Robert Swezey, is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA, and is Board Certified in 3 specialty areas: Rheumatology, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Internal Medicine.
Dr. Swezey wanted to find a solution for his patients who were suffering with arthritis, and had painful joints, and therefore a hard time exercising. He came up with the idea of using a lightweight, partially inflated ball. Thus, his patients were able to hold the ball, stretch with it, and squeeze it isometrically, and as a result, achieve strengthening muscle and bone effect.
The Max Planck Institute in Germany, after extensive research, has proven that just a 2/3 maximum isometric resistance exercise is adequate stimulus for muscle strengthening. The problem with isometric exercises is that it often takes elaborate equipment and machinery, which in many cases, is impractical. The OsteoBall solves this -- it's safe, lightweight, portable, and affordable. Most importantly, it "does the job" as well or better than the elaborate equipment.
Q How do I do Isometric Exercises while having a busy schedule?
A Dr. Robert Swezey M.D., designed the perfect solution for you - the Osteoball®. This isometric, portable, exercise device is specifically designed for people with a busy schedule.
And here's more good news. You can do the Osteoball Isometric Exercise Program anywhere: at work, at home, during business trip or vacation, you even have your choice of sitting down or standing up. All you need is your Osteoball and a few minutes. Aren’t you willing to spare the time of a TV commercial break to tune-up your body? Because 10 minutes is all it takes.
Q Is it easy to do Isometric Exercises?
A Exercising with the Osteoball is simplicity itself. It is easy to learn, non-intimidating for beginners or inactive people. A whole-body workout takes less then 10 minutes. You can start feeling and achieving results from the very first time that you use it.
There are no complicated settings or weights or rubber bands you need to change, or heavy equipment you don’t have any idea what to do with. The Osteoball is ready when you are. Just hug it, tug it and get stronger muscles and bones. Simple enough, right? But we go further with our step-by-step instructional video and real-time, exercise audio CD narrated by Dr. Robert Swezey himself.
Q Is Isometric Exercise Safe?
A Isometric Exercises are safe, brief and suited to all body types.
The Osteoball is recognized as one of the safest, easiest to use, isometric exercising devices. Weights could become dangerous to already weak muscles or delicate figures, and rubber bands could do significant injury when maxed out. Well, with the Osteoball these concerns are all taken care of. Not only that, but with the Osteoball you can exercise even in sit-down position, which benefits tremendously those who have some sort of physical limitations.
Isometric exercises are so safe that physicians prescribe them in the physiotherapy and rehabilitation procedures. Forget about the old idea "No Pain, No Gain." With the Osteoball your joints are protected. And with very little effort you can achieve stronger muscles, bones, and tune-up your body.
Q Who is the Osteoball Isometric Exercise Device for?
A While we won't make the blanket statement that the Osteoball is perfect for almost anybody, it certainly comes close in the opinion of a growing number of health professionals. It is shown that the Osteoball helps aid in sport performance, increase muscle and bone mass, work our hard-to-exercise body areas like under the chin, nape of the neck, inner thighs, back, and the underside of upper arms. The OsteoBall is a great help to people with certain physical limitations or osteoporosis. Also, it is ideal for anybody with a busy schedule and it is great for people of all age groups.
Did you know that it is never too early to start exercising? It is a medical fact that we lose 2% of our muscle mass EVERY year after age 29. That’s 15% lost by age 38 and 33% (or 1/3) of your muscle mass by before age 50! Now thankfully, you can change it in less than 10 minutes exercising with your Osteoball.
