Today, we’re going to talk about specific features different inversion tables have. And we’re going to find out how to pick the best inversion table for you particularly. As there are multiple brands, styles, and versions of this equipment on the market.
So, let’s get started.
Choose The Right Inversion Table
Functioning principles of all inversion tables are the same. Basically, you strap yourself to the equipment and go back very slowly. The table will flip over to your body weight. Despite the fact that it is specifically created for back pains, some people use it just to relax after long working hours. Nevertheless, consult your doctor before buying one for yourself.
You have to be sure that your health completely allows you to use this equipment by yourself at home. Especially, if you have a heart disease. As it is not recommended to use inversion tables in this case.
- When trying the equipment, you have to check if your feet can be fitted easily and locked in on it. You must be completely secure and comfortable while your feet are wrapped around on the table. While using the weight of your arms you have to be able to easily rotate the table and have absolute control of that rotation.
- Always check what are the height and the weight limits of each concrete model of the equipment.
- Choose models that include additional items, which can help you to learn to exercise on the inversion table. For example, a set of DVDs, which can walk through the basics of inversion table exercises. Thus, you won’t have to surf the Net for hours in order to learn how to use the equipment properly. Or it must include a printable quick guide through some basic stretches you can do as a beginner.
Among the most popular models are Teeter Hang Ups and Ironman.
So, consult with a physician and pick the right inversion table for yourself if it is allowed.
