Just Let Go
The Flexsolate™ grip-free cuffs can eliminate gripping from all upper body exercises. Using the most up-to-date SEMG laboratory testing at the North Idaho Bio-Performance Institute of Northern Idaho Physical Therapy, Flexsolate™ has proven when you eliminate the grip from your exercise you can expect an increase in muscle stimulation of up to 400% in the targeted muscle.
The Flexsolate™ Experience
When exercising the back or shoulders, one requires as much nerve activity as possible in those particular areas in order for those muscles to work efficiently and effectively during exercise. This helps create more developmental strength. When you grip a handle, your hands and forearms will rob the targeted muscle of the energy needed for stimulation and growth. Over-gripping can also be a contributing factor to tendonitis in the hands, elbows, and shoulders, not to mention other health-related problems that can occur including dangerous spikes in heart and blood pressure.
The Flexsolate™ technology is so perfect, it is now being used in many other industries as well! Flexsolate™ technology is the most perfect technology for exercising there is. Period!

OK. I ordered these here a month or so ago and I must say I’m impressed. They are very well made and come with a DVD that describes how to use them and a wide variety of exercises that can be enhanced with the straps.
The first thing I tried them on was lat pulldowns and the feeling in the lats was incredible. You actually feel the tension directly in the lats versus traps and biceps. The range of motion is less but you really know the lats are activated the whole time. I can say my upper lats have grown considerably in just a few weeks.
They really shine on tricep pushdowns as you can rotate your wrists to put max stress on the muscles. I found it to be much easier on my wrists as well. Doing “rope” pushdowns, I’ve brought my lateral triceps up a bit using the straps, too.
The other week I used them on t-bar rows and it was the best they have ever felt. The upper back was activated much more and gave out long before the biceps. Doing seated rows is great, too, since you can turn your arms and get a longer range of motion.
Altogether, I would say it’s well worth the investment. They are especially good for those of us where age has taken a toll on the joints. I can do exercises that were painful before using the flexolate straps.
These might be a good “stocking stuffer”!
I heartily recommend the Gym-In-A-Bag to everyone.
It pleases me to applaud the development of the grip-free Gym-In-A-Bag, which I use several times each week. I have yet to find an exercise that weight-lifters use that I cannot closely duplicate. There are several advantages to using grip-free technology and the resistance bands. The most important is not what it does, but rather the injuries it prevents. My experience as a physician put me in contact with numerous injuries related to lifting weights. These included back strain, shoulder injuries, as well as torn ligaments and muscles. The violent jerking and straining is apparent to everyone who watches those lifting weights. The pulley systems are much kinder to the body, as are the Nautilus machines and their ilk. But in terms of safety, cost, and effectiveness, the hands-down winner is the Gym-In-A-Bag. The elimination of gripping to exercise the larger muscles of the body is a godsend, enabling children and seniors to exercise effectively without fear of injury, just like the middle-aged athletes. The progressivity of the band tension is fabulous. With heavyweights, especially, the initial jerk and launch of the weight is dangerous, and a violent event for the body. The bands begin with no resistance and the progressivity of resistance is nearly infinite, accommodating beautifully and naturally to the strength and physiques of the users. I think injuries are nearly impossible since one can constantly adjust for the ideal tension, no matter which muscle groups are being stressed. Muscles are like people: kindness is important and builds strength. Many are the kids and seniors who quit working out due to the violence inherent in the tools of the typical gym. There is more pain than gain, and injuries are common. Physical Therapist recognizes this, and much prefer elastic bands to weights. The typical weakness of grip that one sees in children and older adults further accentuates the virtues of grip-free technology. For everyone, irrespective of age, one can focus on the bigger, stronger muscles, without dissipating energy in gripping.
The device is darn cheap, in comparison with machines and weights and memberships in gymnasia, and it is very, very portable, fitting neatly in a fanny pack or backpack, perhaps leaving the bar at home. The convenience is stunning, allowing one to hook the bands to a fence, a post, a door, or a car bumper. I have never seen anything like it, nor anything better. I use it and encourage all my friends and family to use it. It is absolutely wonderful. I am possibly in better shape now at age 66 than I was at age 35. I feel like a kid again, and I feel in control when I exercise, nearly every day. I heartily recommend the Gym-In-A-Bag to everyone. It is revolutionary, and, in the future, will dominate muscle development and fitness like nothing before its arrival on the scene. Its impact on the physical therapy and rehabilitation world will be revolutionary. Trust me. I know of what I speak.
