Experience a plain and simple training principle. These instructions are well thought through.
Are the tensile and pressure resistance of dumbbells, fitness studio equipment and the Isokinator comparable?
This depends on various factors such as body size, joint position and leverage.
Working out with the ISOKINATOR is whole-body training. This makes all other forms of exercise unnecessary.
No, not generally. But it doesn’t hurt to try out some exercises in STAND-BY mode to begin with.
It’s simple. Just put it in the dishwasher (not the washing machine).
An ISOKINATOR often trains agonist and antagonist muscles simultaneously.
If you want to engage in a leisure-time sport as well, you should do so on training-free days or on weekends if possible.
After a 20-25 minute workout, your musculature will need a training-free day for regeneration and growth.
Endurance effects are included in the ISOKINATOR training program as well, however.
If the resistance regulator shifts during an exercise, this is a sign of a lack of concentration.
Two to three days after an unfamiliar workout, the body shows you where the exercise "hit home". Give your body a break for 1-2 days and restart your training slowly.
If you are coming down with an infectious disease, the ISOKINATOR often gives an indication of this early on.
The right resistance per exercise should always be high enough that you can plan to do the next set of 10 movements, but often only manage to do 6 to 8.
Avoid additional speed exercises to supplement your ISOKINATOR training. Forget fast chin-ups and push-ups while clapping your hands in the air.
The ISOKINATOR provides your musculature with the same training resistances used for large fitness studio equipment.
Once you've used the Isokinator, you'll know that it's not necessary to constantly keep your eyes on the gold balls.
Yes you can, but you're never guaranteed to get better results. Read here why this is so
There are 3 things that are responsible for this. And only the clever combination of these 3 points succeeds only with the Isokinator.
