Add-On weights for Aquaflex
Get more use from your Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise System with our add on weights set, which allows you to use active weight training techniques to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
Exclusive to Pelvic Floor Exercise™ and only useable with Aquaflex, the add-on weights are a three weight set in stainless steel: 50g, 85g and 95g.
This weights set cannot be used as a stand-alone exercise aid.
The Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise System contains 4 weights (1x 5g, 1 x10g, 2x 20g) which together add up to 55g.
The Add-on weight set progresses this from 50 -95g to further challenge your pelvic floor muscles.
Pelvic floor weights or cones like Aquaflex are sold as a way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles without doing exercises. As health professionals we do not recommend this approach, rather we suggest that you use them as feedback and resistance - to feel the weight in the vagina and gently lift, hold then relax .
In other words you do your pelvic floor exercises with the weights - just like you would when strengthening any other group of muscles.
The Aquaflex cones can also be used functionally. This means you can put them into the vagina and then do some activities such as hang the washing, make the bed , or even do a run or some pilates. The awareness of the weight or cone in the vagina will help you determine exactly when to contract your pelvic floor during a movement in order to maximise the effectiveness fo your muscles.
This product is supplied with expert physiotherapy guided instructions to ensure you get the most out of your product and use it effectively. You can download the guidelines HERE
These heavier weights, used as part of an active weight training program, can provide more challenge and build stronger muscle.
All three of these supplementary weights fit in the larger Aquaflex cone.
They can be used in flexible combination with the weights supplied with a Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise System, enabling further progression through stages of 60g, 65g, 70g, 75g, then 85g, then 95g.
Weights are supplied with instructions for applying weight-training techniques and repetitions, based on the American College of Sports Medicine's Position Stand on Progression Models in Resistance Training for Healthy Adults (ACSM 2002).
These weights are manufactured in Australia from high quality 304 stainless steel. They are supplied with instructions, in simple environmentally friendly recyclable cardboard tube packaging, and include a velveteen drawstring bag for storage.
