THE BOB simultaneously develops balance, flexibility, strength, vertical jump, and speed. For stretching, strengthening, and enhancing the leg and calf muscles, most people do not like to exercise. You will be able to stretch your Achilles, tibialis, and gastrocnemius muscles to places they have never been before.
Working your ankles high and low with ease, you will feel like you're not even exercising. The results are incredible in less than 3 minutes a day.
The main reason this happens is that your toes are straight, not bent. When doing a calf-rise, THE BOB will able you to use the full range of motion with an isokinetic exercise. The calf muscles work from top to bottom with NO STRESS, NO PAIN, to the KNEE at all. THE BOB is great for any age.
When you walk, jog or run, THE BOB will make you're exercising simple and easy. All stretching and strengthening of your legs muscles will be enhanced through isokinetic exercise. This is a kind of muscular contraction in which muscles contract at a constant speed against varying degrees of resistance.
Isometric is against immovable resistance and does not change the length of muscles. Isotonic is a kind of muscular constant in which muscles contract at varying speeds against a constant resistance, which will affect the tibialis muscle. Both anterior and posterior will help in eliminating the chance for shin splints, an excruciating injury.
The gastrocnemius and Achilles will stretch to the full range of motion with the use of THE BOB from both ways. Your Speed, Balance, Quickness, Vertical Jump, and Flexibility will increase for both your personal and athletic use.
THE BOB will decrease your chances of injury by using your own body weight. THE BOB will automatically keep you within your natural ability. Gently rock your toes forward, then rock back to your heels, repeating the BOBBING motion from heel to toe. Proper "foot placement and standing straight up is vital to maintain your center of gravity. Hold on to a wall or counter. You will make a more difficult exercise while gradually placing your feet back further till your toes are on the edge of THE BOB.
Reverse THE BOB repeating the same, but moving your feet forward till your heel is at the edge will benefit your Achilles tendon and tibialis muscle. This is the simplest calf builder and strengthener. THE BOB is quick and fun to use and can be used in conjunction with your everyday exercise regimen.
I am tall and have had trouble with knee pain and ankle mobility. After using the bob for a few weeks in the mornings when doing mobility work and before squat workouts I have noticed gains in dorsiflexion and lessened pressure on my medial meniscus (which I have torn and had scoped). Excellent product, would recomend to others having issues similar to mine. I will be trying to get my cousins (division 1 and high school cross country) to try it out as they have had issues with ITBS, patellar tendonitis, and shin splints. Thank you Louie, for promoting useful tools like this to help allow people to stay on the path.
I was having a lot of trouble with plantar fasciitis and ankle mobility. A friend had a Bob and said it eliminated his issue with plantar fasciitis. I decided to buy one and see if it would work. It was amazing. After just a short time of working with it daily the pain in my heal was gone and my ankle mobility improved tremendously. I highly recommend this product!
We’ve had The BOB for years. My husband had a stroke in early June and lost use of his left arm, hand and leg, though not totally paralyzed, so rehabilitation therapy is helping. His left leg has shown the most improvement, arm can be lifted some, but his wrist and hand have not shown much “return” due to a “dead spot” in the nerve to both.
We’ve learned that the location of his stroke cut off communication from his brain via nerves to his left extremities and that rehab is aimed at retraining the brain and nerves to send those messages again, in addition to preventing atrophy.
Last night I got The BOB out and had him work his ankles, while sitting. Then I thought perhaps it might help his wrist and arm and placed it on his lap with the narrow side out, and lift it from the front edge, holding his palms down, to rock his wrist. Most of the effort was made by his good hand, but that moved his left wrist simultaneously. He did that, a couple minutes at a time, for 30-40 minutes. This morning when he woke up, he called to me saying, “Honey, look!” He was able to slightly lift his hand using his left wrist! Only maybe 1/2”-1”, but his wrist had been totally limp since he had the stroke, so it was BIG!
This will be a daily part of his at-home exercise from now on. He is 69 and I am 74, so I’m using it for balance improvement. We highly recommend this piece of equipment, not only for regular strength training, but especially for rehabilitation purposes!
