New (Thera) Band on the Block

Dr. Jeffrey Tucker on the new Thera-band CLX:

“I like CLX bridging for the glut muscles, at least 3-5 times a week. If you have back pain, sit-ups are taken out of the program and I teach patients exercises that do a better job of ab work anyway, like planks or core engagement leg raises with the CLX. These get the job done!

With CLX, patients gain decrease pain, increase flexibility and gain strength. They understand that it requires lots of reps and volume. In my class we do bouts of 30-60 seconds. Athletes understand they need volume if they want to build endurance. My patients in pain understand movements with CLX improves recovery ability.  A little soreness and stiffness after the first CLX workout is normal. That’s normal in any new training – it eases in a few days and then you are ready for more reps and sets.

I highly recommend you add CLX to your regular training. Try it as part of your correctives or dynamic warm up. Start with your bird dogs, squats, pushups, and knee raises.”
