MS Workouts uses a strength training method that was developed in 2008, at our Practical fitness Studios, since then it has benefited thousands of people. The technique is called Steady-Pace®. It is a slow-motion, high intensity, low impact movement that is safe on your joints, and delivers a powerful neuromuscular engagement of the targeted muscles. There is no momentum involved, the movements are 100% muscle led.
Strength training is NOT the same thing as aerobic exercise (swimming, biking, walking). The benefits are VERY different. It's important that you have both aerobic exercise and strength training in your weekly exercise routine. While aerobic exercise is great for cardiovascular fitness, strength training is what will really set you on a path towards recovery from MS symptoms, like fatigue, atrophy, and poor balance & coordination.
MS Workouts utilizes a time-based graphics system, and uses CLX Multi-loop Therabands for resistance during the exercise. There are over 100+ guided exercises for the entire spectrum of MS in our program.
