Work Every Muscle In Your Body At Home With This New Fitness Technology
For some, it might be a long time until their gym reopens or until they feel confident using shared equipment in an environment of strangers’ sweat and heavy breathing. It makes sense that the home fitness industry has seen a massive tick in uptake.
Regardless of living through a once-a-century pandemic, it always makes sense to train smarter and more efficiently wherever and whenever possible. If you want to make real gains and see your body change, read on. It’s all about progression.
Most of the equipment you have at home will not be sufficient to actually challenge you enough to deliver meaningful results. It might be great for beginners new to resistance training, but you’ll quickly outgrow it – or find that you’ll need hundreds of reps to get anywhere.
Another pitfall of common workouts, both at home or in the gym, is that they often quickly get stale. This happens either because they’re not challenging enough or they’re lacking variation.
Loading plates and throwing heavy dumbbells seems somewhat primitive alongside other connected fitness options at our fingertips. One the one hand, you’ve got the if-it-ain’t-broke principle. Maybe we keep moving iron around because it works.
Sure, but that argument doesn’t really cut it, with humankind’s natural inclination to progress, innovate, and continually excel. For all the whizbang technology out there that has evolved in the ‘smart’ era, which opens up a world of possibilities for a range of exercise types, not much has effectively evolved weightlifting into the digital sphere. Until now.
The V-Form Trainer by Vitruvian Form has genuinely revolutionized resistance training and is generating strong interest and pre-sales around the world ahead of its official launch later this year. The interest isn’t just in professional athletic and fitness circles but across the spectrum from sports scientists and rehabilitative programs to young mothers, fit lads, and elderly folks.
Why so much interest by so many types? Because it’s not just repackaging existing technology or tools into a smart device. It’s providing individuals with a fundamentally better way to train, that until now has been the domain of only serious athletes with team support or people under the guidance of preventative health and rehab professionals.
Housed within a slim form carbon-fiber platform – light and compact enough to use and store away just about anywhere – is unique algorithmic technology that empowers the user to train more purposefully and safely than ever before. With just two cables and a concise range of accessories, this remarkable device can all but replace an entire gym.
Conceived of by an applied physicist and high-frequency trader, the algorithms that the V-Form is built on is what blows away the competition. The smart tech learns the user’s capabilities, meaning that it won’t allow you to cheat, it will push you to make gains based on previous performance data, and, importantly, it acts as a spotter.
Backed by hard science on the most efficient and effective ways to holistically train a body, the feeling of the V-Form Trainer’s seemingly intelligent responsiveness to the user’s technique and capability is a physical marvel that is hard to put into words – you really have to feel it to believe it.
Activated by the V-Form App, which has a vast catalog of exercises and classes, the V-Form Trainer enables the user to train through multiple strength parameters and modes. Fundamental to its appeal is the ability to use it for eccentric-only training as well as for eccentric overloading. Traditional resistance training consists of concentric-only or mostly concentric contractions.
Eccentric training has long been an integral part of preparation programs for athletes. During the lengthening contraction – say, when you’re lowering the weight; concentric is when you’re lifting it – the muscle is at its strongest, which means it is capable of exerting a higher force at the same energy cost.
For strength programming, eccentric overload is where it’s at. The beauty of the V-Form Trainer is that the sleek, compact device does it all for you, doing away with weight releasers and flywheel devices. You can train completely effectively and safely alone, with no spotter. With a few simple physical movements, you introduce your range of motion and weight capabilities to the machine – then it responds and adapts accordingly.
You can perform the concentric phase with little or no weight before the weight is loaded on at the top of the motion for full resistance in the negative phase of the movement. The V-Form can supply up to 200kg of resistance, although for many purposes, you’ll find that eccentric training at lower weights less frequently will provide the results you’re looking for.
Which brings us back to progression.
A successful purposeful training program will consist of three key elements:
- muscle activation and growth,
- increased aerobic capacity, and
- improved functional ability.
To get the best results you need to track your data and workout history. The V-Form Trainer solves this essential component of your workout simply. Never again print out a spreadsheet, fill in numbers or manually adjust settings.
