Thomas Kurz – Flexibility Express
Flexibility and Functional Strength in No Time
Get the flexibility you need—quickly and painlessly—with Flexibility Express!
Spend only 15-30 minutes twice a week on our Flexibility Express exercises, which simultaneously increase strength and flexibility, and in just a few weeks you’ll perform splits, back bridges, and high kicks with ease.
- Achieve great flexibility and functional strength at the same time! At any age!
- Do back bridges, high kicks and splits with no warm-up—fast and easy!
- Stop wasting your time on the usual stretches that give minimal flexibility that doesn’t last!
All exercises are demonstrated by a senior citizen, a 55-year-old man—if he can do it, you can do it!
This easy-to-follow DVD offers a proven method of increasing your range of motion while increasing your strength—whatever your age or flexibility level.
With Flexibility Express DVD you will be an expert on strength and flexibility training. This is what every instructor of sports or martial arts ought to know!
You will learn…
- how to arrange your strength exercises and stretches for the quickest results (so you can achieve splits and back bridges quickly and painlessly)
- how to have your full flexibility—your back bridges, high kicks and splits, normally available only after a warm-up—without any warm-up
- how to recognize and correct small errors that hold you back or even cause injuries
- how to test your flexibility potential (to see if you can achieve front splits, side splits or Chinese splits, and back bridges even before you start the training)
You will learn innovative functional exercise progressions from weighted squats to splits and back bridges. Each exercise will build your muscles while increasing your flexibility, saving both your time and energy. The saved time and energy then can be used for more and better practice of your skills….
Attention: No stretching equipment or stretching machines are needed, but strength exercises require weights (barbells, dumbbells, or kettlebells).
