Eccentric training without limits at any location: an absolute novelty
In classical muscle training we usually work with concentric movements: The contraction of the muscles, like pushing up a barbell in bench press. Flywheel training with the aerobis kinetic trainer, on the other hand, requires mainly eccentric muscle work: the movement against a resistance, such as when lowering the barbell in bench press.
This works with a rotating flywheel, which should be set in motion in the concentric part of the exercise and then slowed down again in the eccentric part with maximum effort. Through this maximum effort, the deceleration of the resistance ideally occurs faster than the build-up of resistance in the concentric phase. This results in an enormous training stimulus, which is difficult to achieve by other means.
When you train with the Kinetic Trainer you increase:
- Muscle strength
- Muscle mass
- Jumping power
- Core strength
This is how the training with the flywheel works
The aerobis Kinetic Trainer is a compact device that can be attached in a flexible way to walls, rigs or pillars. The movement sequence is in two phases.
Phase 1 – Concentric movement: The flywheel inside the trainer is set in motion and accelerated by pulling the strap. It builds up kinetic energy. As soon as the strap has been completely unrolled, the flywheel automatically pulls it back again: like a yo-yo.
Phase 2 – Eccentric movement: The strap is pulled back by the flywheel. The challenge is to quickly bring the rotating plate to a standstill through high resistance. Afterwards the concentric movement starts again.
Once you get used to the movement with the aerobis Kinetic Trainer, you can vary the degree of difficulty individually by the amount of force in the concentric phase and the selected flywheel combination!
Decide for yourself how hard you want to train
No matter if warm-up or maximum muscle growth: You can determine the intensity of your training with the aerobis Kinetic Trainer yourself. The greater the force required to unroll the band, the higher the resistance when the band is pulled back. Unlike training with weights, your muscles are always under constant tension. This increases the efficiency and intensity of your workout!
The individually adjustable intensity makes flywheel training perfect for many different requirements: From top-class sport and sport-specific training, general fitness, personal training to rehabilitation and physiotherapy.
