Do you want to do a lot for your health in the shortest possible time?
Then before you start your training or exercises you should think about which structures of your body have the most influence on the general health and which exercises are the most efficient for it. Why should I do exercises that only benefit the back or only train the hips or knee joints, when there is a possibility to give a positive impulse to the entire body, including all joints? Why do single exercises for muscles or fascia or ligaments/tendons and joint capsules, when there is the possibility in so-called ALL IN ONE EXERCISES to activate all structures in one exercise?
If you are interested in these things, you should take a look at the SPINE BELT CONCEPT.
Little time required – promote health efficiently – sustainable pain reduction – better posture – more even, healthier load on all joints – more energy for life!
The Spine Belt Concept
I have been involved in health training for 25 years! As a fascia and health expert I was and am allowed to give lectures and workshops all over the world. This has allowed me to exchange ideas with movement experts and therapists over and over again. And so, over the years, an excellent movement concept with a special small device “THE SPINE BELT” has developed.
The Spine Belt – The Theory
If you want to train efficiently and save time, you should first think about which regions of the body have the greatest influence on the whole system.
From my experience it has been shown that “THE TURM” plays a central role in this!
The torso consists mainly of the rib cage and the spine!

Almost all organs of our body are located in the chest. All organs move in certain paths during a breathing process. This is very important for the functionality and health maintenance of the organs, but also of the spine. If the chest loses posture (chest caved in/arched forward) and mobility, e.g. due to a lot of sitting, this not only has negative effects on the organs but also on the spine as well as all other joints (bad posture – uneven load on the joints in everyday life)!
Integrated into the spinal column is the spinal canal! Through the spinal canal run all nerves, which innervate all muscles and all organs! If something is wrong with the spinal canal, you will inevitably have problems with your body!
Have you ever thought about special exercises to keep the spinal canal healthy?
So if you want to optimize your health efficiently and in a time-saving way, you can’t avoid exercises for the torso
The 4 structures
Our body is healthiest and most resistant when we have a balance between stability and flexibility. There are 4 structures responsible for this balance.
Since all 4 structures have different consistencies, in order to be optimally stimulated, they need different stimuli to move.
– Muscles stands for contraction
– Fascia stands for stretching
– Capsule/tendon/ligament structures stands for bobbing and springing
– Fluid stands for variety of movement
If one wants to perform an optimal health workout, then all 4 structures should be sufficiently stimulated, if possible.
If you also want to train in a time-saving and efficient way, then it makes sense to create exercises that optimally activate all 4 structures in one exercise.
These exercises are called ALL IN ONE EXERCISES!
In summary: All in One Exercises with the torso are the best option to cause a lot of positive changes in the body with little time!
What changes when you train – Example: Efficient strength training for health
If I train the large pectoral muscle on the Chest Press, then I accordingly only have a positive influence on the pectoral muscle. However, if you activate a pre-stretched pectoral muscle, this has a positive influence on the strength, on the surrounding fascial structures and on the general posture. Activating muscles lengthwise also seems to be the best way to improve flexibility! And thus, with one exercise, we have,
POSITIVELY INFLUENCED STABILITY, FLEXIBILITY AND POSTURE!
The Spine Belt
The Spine Belt is a belt in which you can fix different sizes of TOGU Rendondo balls. Thus, the ball can not roll away during the exercises. This also allows for more active movement variations with the balls.
Putting on the belt
First, the Velcro is closed in front of the body. Then turn the belt so that the support system for the ball is in front of the body.
Now take a TOGU Rendondo Ball and enclose it with the 2 red marked strips vertically and then with the 2 gray marked strips horizontally. Now the ball is fixed and can be easily rotated in all directions by a special coating on the inside of the belt! This ensures a high exercise variability.
Example: Spine Belt exercise with the lateral torso structure.
With the Spine Belt you can optimally pre-stretch the side of the torso. The belt ensures secure positioning of the client. The ball cannot slip. The positioning alone provides good stretching of the side of the torso as well as the fascial lining of the rib cage. The lateral portion of the diaphragm is pre-tensioned and can be exercised by deep breathing.
If you now reach around the wrist of the outstretched arm with your free hand and then actively press into the hand with the outstretched arm, you activate the complete lateral torso musculature in length (= positive impulse for strength – flexibility – posture)
If you start bobbing the trunk with the outstretched arm over the ball, then you additionally activate the shoulder joint and the capsule-ligament structures along the spine.
Another possibility with 1 to 1 care: treating in motion
The safe positioning gives the therapist the possibility to treat the fascial structures better as well as to apply special stimuli in a maximally pre-stretched state.
It increases the treatment flexibility of the therapist and enhances the effect of the treatment!
