Builder, sailor and former gymnast Kare Mosberg was the inventor of Redcord®. Brothers peter Planke and Tore Planke founded the Redcord® company in 1991. They started the company after Peter was plagued by repeated episodes of acute low back pain for over 20 years. He found that the Redcord® system alleviated his pain.
Redcord®’s total and holistic approach bridges the gap between performance oriented training and injury rehabilitation and is based on the principles of combining body weight with resistance using suspension slings. A unique blend of applied scientific knowledge, patented equipment and trained guidance ensures the Redcord® system gets results.
Comprehensive knowledge of physical medicine and exercise science underlies a unique active training method.
Redcord® enables you to exercise in a safe but challenging manner in order to develop strength and control in end of range positions. And since Redcord® exercises can activate several muscle groups during a single exercise, training time is reduced.
Performance training with Redcord® consists of three-dimensional exercises with high carry-over effect to sporting situations. The exercises improve strength, muscular endurance, balance, coordination and core muscle stability. Studies show that suspension exercises in Redcord® improve athletic performance more than traditional strength training. Since Redcord® suspension exercises activate muscle interaction and multiple muscle groups during a single exercise, the training is also time efficient.
An increasing number of elite athletes use Redcord® suspension exercises to compliment their existing training and experience a dramatic reduction in injuries during training and competition. Redcord® is used all over the world by trainers and athletes as
- Performance enhancement
- Injury prevention
Suspension exercise provides fast and proven efficiency for anyone who would like to avoid pain, prevent injuries, enhance performance or for those looking to stay active.
