Strengthening connective tissue

Connective tissue is comprised of many different types of supporting tissues.

This tissue is found not only in the superficial layers of the body, but also in its deeper layers. Joint capsules and ligaments consist of connective tissue. A strength endurance training regimen which includes the use of the FLEXI-BAR strengthens the connective tissue.

One of the reasons for this is that such training increases the body’s oxygenation and significantly improves the removal of waste products from the body. As a result, the connective tissue can then regenerate much more quickly and effectively.

Since connective tissue - as shown in the illustration - has a 3-dimensional structure, there is always an advantage to 3-dimensional training. This means using a range of space and integrating all levels (sagittal, frontal and transverse planes). Large exercise equipment in gyms usually incorporates only two levels. The theme of connective tissue training is also addressed in Dr. Müller-Wohlfahrt and Oliver Schmidtlein’s book, “Richtig Trainieren” (“Train Correctly”). These two experts explain the multiple benefits of the FLEXI-BAR in their book.
