Aiming high, achieving success

Specific goals need specific training

It is a well proven fact that human adaptation is highly specific. What you train is what you get. It is often claimed that training with machines with guided movement patterns is less effective than exercises which develop also overall coordination, like training with free weights. There is a fundamental error in this thinking. Each and every exercise will teach exactly what that exercise requires, not much more. A bench press adapts the muscles and nervous system to do this movement as efficiently as possible but this specific skill provides few benefits in real life. A question to be asked is if this exercise is the best to effectively and safely train the chest, shoulder and arm muscles and the corresponding joints.

 


Typical exercise devices do not provide consistent loading through the whole range of movement. One of the main reasons for injury and discomfort in training is poorly designed resistance curves. Good example of this is the leg extension machines in the market. With way too light resistance in the first part of the movement, these devices tempt users to accelerate the movement and reach an area of overloading by momentum creating a real danger especially in the eccentric portion with extended legs. Safety for muscles and joints can be secured by using correct resistance curves, which perfectly match muscles’ capacity at every point of the movement and take into consideration other factors like the stretch-shortening-cycle and disproportionate fatigue.

Our high tech solution offers to both athletes and coaches a vast selection of tools to improve performance. Every single exercise is stored to cloud and can be accessed from anywhere. EVE Professional redefines the controlling, monitoring and data collecting standards of a training program.

High intensity – minimal risk

For elite athletes the benefit/risk ratio of an exercise is crucial and it needs to be evaluated carefully when designing a training program. Therefore, exercises that can be executed near athletes one repetition maximum (1 rm) safely without a great risk for injury are essential. For example, typically in combat sports exercises for strengthening cervical muscles possess a high risk of injury. With our G140 and G160 devices cervical muscles can be trained in all directions with very high intensity but with minimal risk.
