Resistance training, also known as strength training, is an effective way to achieve the desired fitness level. The benefits of resistance training include:
- Increased muscle size and strength
- Increased bone density
- Increased stamina
- Improved sense of well being
- Better pain management
- Better weight management
- Decreased risk of injury
- Improved functionality
- Enhanced cardiovascular capacity
- Increased self-esteem
- Better recovery from injury
How Does Resistance Training Work?
Resistance training exercises force your muscles to act against a resistance force. This force can be gravity or mechanical resistance. Improvements are realized when these exercises are performed consistently and repeatedly over a period of time.
There are several types of resistance training:
- Free weights
- Bodyweight exercises
- Weight machines
- Resistance bands
- Mechanical resistance machines
Traditionally, the resistance force in resistance training has been gravity. However, motor-driven resistance training equipment utilizing Adaptive Resistance Exercise (ARX) technology is becoming more popular. ARX resistance training machines are more efficient, effective, and safer than gravity-based resistance training methods.
What is ARX?
When you exercise, your strength capability is always changing. Free weights and other gravity-based resistance training tools are unable to adjust to these changes. This greatly reduces the effectiveness of your workout.
The computer-controlled, motorized exercise technology used in ARX workout equipment machines is able to instantly adjust to these changing levels of strength, providing the perfect amount of resistance. They deliver a full-body, customizable workout for users of all skill levels.
Benefits of an ARX Workout
ARX resistance training machines are also safer to use than free weights. Free weights are always providing resistance. When you can’t overcome this resistance, accidents and injuries can occur.
ARX machines don’t use gravity resistance. When you stop pushing, the machine reduces resistance to zero. You’ll never have to worry about muscle strains and other injuries due to over-excessive resistance.
ARX technology allows users to track their progress in real-time. Users are able to track all aspects of their workout, including sets, reps, weight, maximum force production, cumulative output, work rate, and other important metrics.
ARX resistance workout machines provide the ideal way to achieve just about any lifestyle or fitness goal, including bodybuilding, physical therapy and rehabilitation, regaining lost bone and muscle mass, more resistance to injury, retaining functional strength, and more. They deliver a full-body, customizable workout for users of all skill levels.
