PT Home Exercise Software - New Images May 2020

Hey there, BPM Rx Crew! I hope you and your families have all been staying healthy during the quarantine. These are some wild times. My guess is that you are beyond buzzing to get back into the clinic or gym to treat clients one-on-one again.

In the meanwhile, how have your virtual training sessions been going? Besides emailing or messaging home exercise handouts to your clients, what other tools have you been using? Lots of telehealth Zoom videos and live streaming workouts? Any special tricks you’ve learned? I’d love to hear your experiences.

Anyhow, this post is a quick update on some recent exercise additions to the software. As of this writing, there are 14 new illustrations that have made it into image library.

The big news is that this is the first time that TRX-style suspension trainer movements have been incorporated into the program. There are also some new kettlebell exercises and mobility drills. Those of you in the post-op and ortho worlds, will appreciate a few new rehab-specific movements.home exercise software5 3

Hopefully the names make sense to you. It’s always a toss-up trying to find the balance between modern lingo and more conventional naming standards. If there are any movements that are totally foreign, go ahead and search for them in the program to see the illustration yourself.

As always, I am all ears to your suggestions. The TRX-type movements were incorporated as a direct result of user feedback. Please shoot me an email with some of your must-have exercises, and I’ll work to get them into the program as quickly as possible!
