PATband: Strapping Techniques

PATband: Strapping

The PATband opens up new possibilities for your functional training and therapeutic use. Unlike conventional resistance bands, the PATband is made of stretchable, elastic textile and is over 5cm wide. It is therefore particularly suitable for our strapping techniques, as it lies on the body like a second skin. During functional movements, the PATband creates a resistance very close to the body, which activates various muscle loops as an additional training stimulus and optimizes posture. Weaknesses can be treated very effectively and gently with this new approach. The strappings generate a rotational load component that cannot be reproduced with classic exercises or treatment techniques. In this course I will show you various ways of applying the PATband.

"Strappings are new and a real value add to functional exercise!"

Follow my basic rules for a healthy workout:

Make sure you perform your exercise in a controlled manner. Perform them only as fast as you feel safe in the movement. Increase the speed depending on the training goal without losing the quality of the execution.

Basically, exhale through your mouth when exercising against the resistance of the band or moving up from the floor. The inhalation occurs when you yield to the resistance of the band or approach the floor.

Stop the exercise when it can no longer be performed in a controlled manner without evasive movements. This occurs before you feel the typical burning sensation in the muscle, which is not necessary for a purely functional training stimulus.

Pull your belly button inwards and straighten your chest. This will prevent your pelvis from tilting forward and increasing your natural hollow back. Also avoid unwanted head movements, such as pulling your chin towards your chest. These compensatory movements have the effect of worsening your posture through training instead of improving it!

The PATband gives you the possibility to vary the exercise intensity from easy to hard. Shorten the band or double it if you want to train with higher resistance. Depending on the exercise, training goal and performance level, you can adjust the elasticity of the band to suit you. Always make sure that all exercises are performed correctly, regardless of the speed at which you perform them. 

If you don't feel comfortable with an exercise or feel pain, it makes sense to replace it with an alternative. But: Just because you find an exercise difficult and exhausting, it does not mean that you should no longer do it. Because often it is exactly these exercises that bring you further!

The fast track to success is always linked to intensive coaching. Through my guidance in coaching you will better control your exercises and perform them without compensation. Thus, your sources of error are minimized and the effectiveness is increased many times over. Please contact me personally for this.
