85 Year Old Vet Uses Bungee Training to Get New Leg

Thanks to ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Workouts there has been amazing progress for this veteran, and former NASA engineer, who was running out of time to get his prosthetic leg. After eight months at home doing professional physical therapy to recover from his leg being removed through surgical amputation, Ray could not even pick up a piece of paper without his shoulders hurting, and could not put any pressure on his good leg.

Ray came to Patty Cummings to try her ASTRO-DURANCE® Total Body Bungee System through her P2 Personal Training studio in Cape Coral, Florida after a lot of encouragement from his friend Al Pike. Ray had his leg amputated in January of 2017 and has been undergoing on going physical therapy to build muscle strength so he could be fitted for a prosthetic leg. He had not been able to make any progress and muscle continued to atrophy instead of build. Mainly because he was not able to put any pressure on his leg, no matter what they tried.

Ray’s time was running out, as he only has until September 28, 2017 to build muscle strength or he is not going to get his prosthetic leg. With only five weeks remaining, and muscle atrophy so bad he could not even straighten out his leg, let alone put pressure on it, the future looked very grim.

But, now that grim scenario has all changed.*****

It looks like Ray is going to reach his goal before September 28th!  His muscles are building, and there is no pain when he exercises, nor after. Everyone is rooting for Ray on the ASTRO-DURANCE® Facebook Page and watching each day as he progresses and gets stronger and stronger.  

Ray started his ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Training on August 24, 2017. In just three sessions he has begun to be able to pull his own body weight on a Total Gym with Astro Bungees providing back and posture support. This training setup allows for no pain on his shoulders. Now Ray’s arms as well as his good leg are building muscle!

Ray smiles and looks forward to his workouts that are pain free and results oriented!  Ray’s progress has proven that the “Motion Based Exercise” provided by ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee System builds muscle!  Motion based exercise is the concept of expanding and contracting the muscles using bungee cord assistance without putting pressure on the joints by assisting the body to do what it cannot do on its’ own.  It is the key to rebuilding muscle strength! You don’t actually have to pound the pavement and add harmful high impact on the joints!  “No pain, no gain” is yesterday’s motto, today it is “We Gain, No Pain” and it works!
