The Exxentric flywheel training product range is optimised for a wide range of defined exercises targeting most major muscle groups. However, creative users can apply an infinite variety of exercises using their kBox or kPulley and various accessories for specific purposes. Here are some examples.
When professional teams implement general physical preparation in their pre-season, they oftentimes rely on basic full-body movements such as squats and deadlifts, or even Olympic movements and derivatives like snatches or clean & jerks.
Flywheel training has been scientifically proven to be more effective than traditional gravity-based training, and presents itself as a valid and reliable alternative for pro teams, especially when training camps are done elsewhere.
Thanks to its versatility, both the kBox and the kPulley can be used for performance sports during specific phases of the training to mimic sport specific movements and angles, and get athletes ready to perform at their highest level.
Here are some examples of flywheel training application for sports performance:
Whether we like it or not, injuries have been and will always be part of professional sport. Injury incidence can vary depending on the sport and discipline, but the risk is always there. Pro club’s medical staff together with S&C coaches do their best to minimize the risk, by relying on technology and the latest science-validated best practices.
Furthermore, as we get old, sarcopenia and loss of bone mineral density become a real threat to health, and strength training is one of the best ways to fight it. Several studies on flywheel training in seniors have shown improvements in muscle strength and power as well as functional mobility.
The resistance in all Exxentric product range is user-generated. This means that each device adapts its resistance to each individual’s strength, making it accessible for seniors as well as injured athletes. Both kBox and kPulley can be creatively used in different settings exposing weaker joint angles in order to strengthen the muscle and joint, to both avoid injuries or recover from them.
Here are a few examples of how can flywheel training be used for both injury prevention and rehab:
Although flywheel training has been around since the mid-1920s, for the average gym-goer it might be perceived as something only professional trainers and coaches would use. Far from the truth, over the past years, we have seen an exponential growth of fitness users adopting flywheel training and getting excellent results.
Since the resistance is user-generated, everybody can train with it as the kBox and kPulley automatically adapt to the user’s strength, even seniors can benefit from the unique features flywheel training provides.
Flywheel training has been scientifically proven to be more effective than traditional gravity-based training in both strength and power due to its unique stimuli. This has encouraged users to seek creative solutions to optimize their kBox and kPulley usage, for both the upper and lower body.
