About the Teeter Hang Ups Dex II
The Teeter Hang Ups Dex II Decompression and Extension Machine is a versatile, multi-purpose chair that allows for a variety of stretches and strengthening exercises in addition to the much needed spinal decompression you are looking for.
You can easily build muscle in your back, glutes, chest and arms by performing hyperextensions, tricep dips and push-ups using the Dex II.
Because of its Roman-chairlike design, it alleviates the stress and pain on your knees and ankles that more traditional inversion tables can cause because the pelvis and thighs will bear your body weight instead of the knees and ankles.
Here are a few stretches and decompression moves that can be performed with the Teeter Hang Ups Dex II.
Use caution and pay attention to your physical limits when starting new stretches or exercises.

*People who have a coronary illness, hypertension, eye problems (glaucoma, infection, etc.) or are pregnant are at high risk for problems identified with invasion therapy and should consult with their medical specialists first. Such individuals, with their physician’s approval, would need to advance gradually, beginning at light levels of therapy.
