Eccentric Weight Training – TestYou GYRO
TestYou GYRO is an inert device, thanks to which we can make eccentric training of every part of body. While exercising we generate resistance only by power of our muscles, which makes training independent from power of gravity.
Inert exercises are a perfect choice in power as well as in functional training.
Main advantages of exercising with TestYou GYRO in power training are:
- Enhancing power and muscle mass in short time
- Increase of muscle power without big metabolic burden
- Better mobility in joints
- Enhancing explosive strength and sport performance
Inert training with TestYou GYRO is a gradual process. Power which is used to put device into movement in concentric phase is lower than power which “comes back” to athlete – which is a power in eccentric phase. It prevents muscle strains and other possible injuries while moving.
In an eccentric exercise power generated in muscle is maximal, that’s why the main effect of eccentric training is power growth. A typical person is 30-40% more powerful in eccentric phase than in concentric one. It means, that if we can make a squat with 100kg load, we should be able to put down at least 130kg load in a controlled way.
Inert training positively affect muscle functionality – enhance their power, speed and contraction dynamics. Training based on a concentric phase causes greater hypertrophy than a traditional one.
What is more, we should mind that TestYou GYRO is a safe device, thanks to which we can make eccentric training without necessary help of coach. Adding to your training inert exercises is a stimulation for organism to enhance collagen synthesis and reconstruction of tissues in tendons. Thanks to it we will take care of our body and lower risk of having an injury.
