Why We Made the New NordStick Pro Banded

As a sports physical therapist, I frequently encountered a common challenge among my clients: the difficulty of performing effective leg curls and extensions at home. Recognizing the need for a solution that accommodates beginners and those unable to perform intense exercises like Nordic curls, we developed the NordStick Pro Banded. This blog explores the thought process behind this innovative product and its benefits for your fitness journey.

Key Takeaways

Here’s what you can expect from incorporating the NordStick Pro Banded into your workout routine:

  • Enhanced Strength and Rehabilitation: Perfect for essential leg strengthening and rehabilitation exercises.
  • Travel-Friendly Design: Lightweight and portable, allowing you to maintain your workout regimen anywhere.
  • Versatility: Adapts to various fitness levels with a range of exercises to keep you engaged and progressing.

The Genesis of NordStick Pro Banded

The idea for the NordStick Pro Banded sprang from a gap in the market for an affordable, accessible method for individuals to perform key leg exercises at home. Many clients struggled with Nordic curls due to their intensity and the physical demands of kneeling. Our goal was to create a more entry-level product that still offers the significant benefits of dynamic resistance training.

What Makes NordStick Pro Banded Your Ultimate Workout Companion?

Comprehensive Muscle Targeting

The NordStick Pro Banded isn't just about making exercises easier; it's about making them more effective. With the inclusion of a Doorway Band Set, this tool allows for a variety of exercises that target crucial muscle groups:

  • Leg Curls and Extensions: These exercises are fundamental for building the strength of hamstring and quadriceps muscles, crucial for both everyday movements and athletic activities.
  • Hip Strengthening Circuits: Targeting the hip abductors and extensors, which are vital for lateral movements and stability.

Easy Setup and Progressive Resistance Levels

  • Easy Setup: The simplicity of setting up the NordStick Pro Banded means you can start your workout quickly. Just attach the bands to a door anchor and you're ready to go.
  • Progressive Resistance: Starting with black bands for a gentle introduction and moving up to red bands for building muscle strength and endurance—this product grows with you. For those seeking an intense workout, doubling the bands can significantly increase the resistance.

Sample Workout Plan

To give you a taste of what’s possible with the NordStick Pro Banded, here’s a sample workout that maximizes the benefits of dynamic resistance training:


    • 3 sets of 20 hamstring curls with the red band
    • 3 sets of 10 standing hip extensions per side

    Intensive Strength Training

      • 3 sets of 5 slow eccentric Nordic curls

      Targeted Leg Work

        • 3 sets of 8 leg curls with the black band for detailed hamstring engagement
        • 3 sets of 8 leg extensions to strengthen the quadriceps
        Hip Strengthening Circuit
          • 3 rounds each of reverse squats, standing hip abduction, and hip extension with the red band

          Each exercise has been carefully chosen to effectively target specific muscle groups, promoting not only muscle growth but also enhancing joint stability and flexibility. Consistent training with the NordStick Pro Banded can lead to significant improvements in physical health, including better posture, reduced risk of injury, and increased metabolic rate.
