Pat Walker Exercise Bed
Pat Walker Exercise Unit
“Firms and Tightens Tissue at All Ages”
While you lie on the equipment, be sure your nose lines up with the center bar and spinal column is down the center of the unit.
This position introduces circulation to you on the equipment. With arms extended overhead, hands holding the bar in a stretch position (do not lock elbows); there is an uplifting of the rib cage and a stretch working with the alignment of the spine. The uplifting of the rib cage is wonderful for people with an upper respiratory problem.
The body is in a supine position which puts the heart in a rest position, taking the stress off the heart while stimulating and increasing the circulation. Hypertension people after short periods of time on the unit have been found to have more stable blood pressure. Their diastolic pressure appears to be more easily maintained at the 90 or below level.
The arms are still extended above the head where the stretch and proper alignment is necessary. However, there is an emphasis on keeping the buttock in the contour of the hip position. People with chronic low back strain begin to have more mobility in the back without pain and this also holds true with arthritis of the spine.
Due to the configuration that the frequency and amplitude of the exercise achieved on the Pat Walker, people with arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and other joint problems begin to experience some relief of pain and increased range of motion.
You will bring your arms to your sides in this position, taking hold of the handgrips on either side of the unit. This creates a more vigorous effect. The underside of the arms is now against the unit for the first time.
The hips should be high up on the contour in pelvic tilt, pressing the lower back against the cushions. Stimulation in the abdomen and hip area is still being achieved; however, this is a very restful position.
This is the second most corrective position, as it is still working on the abdomen area, waist, hips and entire leg area. People who have had hip replacements, knee replacements or other joint problems have found relief of pain and increased mobility.
Because the equipment comes with variable leg speed action, you can choose the motion best for your individual need.
If you need to reduce inches in the leg area, the slower motion is best with mild resistance or a backpedaling action. Once the inches are removed and firming is needed, the faster leg motion is best. To achieve this, lift the buttock off the unit in order to re-train the lower back muscle, inner and outer thigh and abdominal muscle.
The faster motion can be used during reducing, however, to be most effective you would not bring the hips off the equipment. This is only done for firming as the fat would interlace in the muscle and be more difficult to remove.
The arms should be extended once again above the head. This time there should be no stretch, but a very loose hold. There should be no resistance in this position at all. The unit is stimulating circulation overall and there is a certain amount of heat calories generated and increased urinary output.
With the moderately rapid exercise of all muscle groups, increased urine flow increased circulation, excess fat begins to break down immediately. You should empty the bladder upon completion of this position.
With proper diet, combined with adequate time on the unit, an overall loss of inches will occur. It is recommended that no less than two hours per week and of course three or more hours is preferable.
