The Recovery Series LEX™ (Lower EX-tremity) allows for faster lower extremity recovery, from post-surgery to explosive training, in a safe and progressive manner. Users work with a percentage of their own bodyweight to perform a squat or a jump, leveraging both linear bodyweight resistance and variable band resistance.
The RS LEX™ supports the spine during traditional squat exercises to comfortably control the descending and ascending phases of a squat or jump, while providing an opportunity for advanced variations including, single-leg squats and staggered stance squats. The included Slide Distance Regulator allows for a customized rolling distance of the glide board based on an individual's strength and mobility.

Introducing the Total Gym Jump Trainer: Plyometric Training
Total Gym Jump Trainer Demo
Total Gym Jump Trainer Product Overview: Physical Therapy
I use the [RS-LEX] Jump Trainer daily in my training for seniors and kids. The seniors really appreciate. It's real life training for people who can't do squats or have knee damage. It's a great way to work the legs out in a reality-based functional training way.
Members love the equipment - the [RS-LEX] Jump Trainer is probably the most popular of the pieces that we've seen so far.... everybody I've shown it to has come back and used it over and over again. It becomes their go-to-piece of equipment
Using the [RS-LEX]Jump Trainer is much smoother than other equipment and more versatile.
Patients love that they can do squats on the equipment when they can't perform them on their own.
The [RS-LEX] Jump Trainer is an invaluable resource for ACL jump training that's helped many athletes get back to sports quickly.
