aerobis Kinetic Trainer: Using the flywheel build more muscle
The dual flywheel technology (hereafter referred to as “Flywheel”) allows targeted eccentric strength training wherever you want. The flywheel challenges your muscles in a completely new way. Your benefits: optimal training for muscle growth, significantly more strength and a shorter recovery time after injuries.
What does eccentric strength training do to your muscles?
Strength training is not all the same. Depending on the type of stress, our muscles react differently. In classic dumbbell exercises, for example, you perform concentric and eccentric movements in equal measure. You work concentrically when you overcome resistance, i.e. lift the dumbbell. This causes the muscle to contract. This phase usually does not last very long. Once the resistance is overcome, the load decreases. When you lower the dumbbell in a controlled manner, this is an eccentric movement and the muscle stretches again. When performed consciously, this phase of the workout lasts longer than the concentric phase. Many people work but exactly at this point sloppy and give away so enormously much potential in terms of muscle building. Because:
In the eccentric phase, small micro tears develop in the muscle. Perceptible as muscle soreness. These cracks must be repaired. And through this repair, the muscles become stronger than before, the muscle buildup is much faster. The principle is called “supercompensation”. It also takes effect during concentric training, but during eccentric movement, there are significantly more microtears.
The advantages of eccentric training at a glance:
- Faster muscle development
- Significant increase in muscle strength (maximum strength can be increased by up to 10% in just a few weeks)
- Improvement of the rapid strength
- Strengthening of tendons, joints and connective tissue
- Shortening the rehabilitation period after injury
Flywheel training: two phases for success
The Kinetic Trainer from aerobis delivers exactly what you’re looking for. Effective, concentric training to build your muscles quickly and sustainably. In doing so, it makes use of the yo-yo effect. There are two phases to the workout. You may have already guessed: A concentric and an eccentric.
The concentric phase: The heart of the Kinetic Trainer from aerobis is the flywheel. This is set in motion by pulling hard on a strap. When the strap is completely unwound, the flywheel automatically pulls it back again. Just like a yo-yo.
The eccentric phase: Exactly at this point, the concentric phase transitions into the eccentric phase. Indeed, the goal is to bring the flywheel to a standstill by muscular counter-pressure. To achieve this, maximum effort is required. The training stimulus for your muscles is enormous. Once you have successfully slowed down the flywheel, the movement starts again.
The great advantage of the aerobis Kinetic Trainer: You determine the intensity of the exercise yourself. The faster you unwind the band, the higher the resistance needed to stop it again.
The Kinetic Trainer from aerobis is thereby not an awkward hulk that can only be used stationary. Weighing only 5 kilograms, the workout wonder is easy to transport and can be used in almost any location. The integrated combi suspension in the set guarantees a trouble-free installation on walls, pillars, trees or fitness rigs.
