X-Force Exercise Fitness Machines in the United States
Main Line Health & Fitness presents X-Force Training Equipment
Main Line Health & Fitness is proud to offer you the United States' most complete X-Force training center.
X- Force is the most meaningful advance in strength training in the last 30 years. A patented "tilting" weight stack allows for a 40% heavier resistance on the "negative" (lowering) part of the exercise. This heavier negative resistance allows for a greater intensity of effort through a higher quality of resistance. Great strength gains in less time! Results that previously required several workouts a week can now be stimulated in ONE workout a week or even less! For EVERYONE!
What is X-Force Training
The fundamental point of X-Force Training, compared to other forms of training, is to deliver a
combination of static, concentric and increased eccentric resistance.
Early machines utilizing pneumatic or electrodynamic resistance failed to provide this combination. The first machine to be constructed was the Eccentric Jo-Jo, developed by Swedish strength-training physiologist Per Tesch at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. This machine provided extra eccentric force in leg extensions. However, there was no static component and it was not possible to maintain a constant 40% increase in eccentric force. The best in Swedish engineering brings X-Force to America at Main Line Health & Fitness.
Recent research has now proven that the eccentric training found in X-Force Fitness Machines improves muscular strength and muscle growth better than concentric training does. As such, X-Force eccentric training can be expected to deliver far better results in regard to the development of tendons, ligaments, joint surfaces and skeleton – and the way fat is metabolized.
Eccentric strength training is recognized as a principal cause of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). Simply by increasing the intensity in the eccentric phase (instead of decreasing it) a person training eccentrically will be able to work out less frequently and in shorter bouts.
Attempts have been made to apply these facts in commercial gyms, but up until now no machine has been able to provide a precisely regulated eccentric force combined with concentric and static components in the correct proportions. The X-Force is the first machine that actually meets these requirements. X-Force provides modern man with excellent way to get fit and stay in shape, as it helps him achieve greater muscular mass and strength by spending less time at the gym.
X-Force Training Equipment Benefits
Applying the full potential of the X-Force operating principle reveals several benefits. For example, research shows that a properly trained muscle takes from 48 to 92 hours to recuperate and be ready for another bout. The stronger you are and the more intense your workout is, the greater the need for rest. Our predictions indicate that a highly motivated person will require a rest period of ten days in order to recover completely! The case for X-Force is strengthened 1) by the fact that training with this system also helps regenerate passive tissues (bone, cartilage, ligaments and tendons) and 2) by the way it accelerates recovery from injuries.
