Advanced Training Modes maximize your training. There are four modes for the XS1 strength training exercises: Overload, Chains, Burnout, and Perturbation.
For pre-configured exercises, access the training modes by selecting Advanced Settings in your workout, located near the lower right side of the active workout screen. For freestyle exercises, access the training modes when you set up your movement.
You can change the training mode within an exercise by unloading the weight and selecting Advanced Settings, located near the lower right side of the active workout screen.
NOTE: Unloading will end the set. Ensure Advanced Settings have been adjusted prior to loading an exercise.
ADVANCED TRAINING MODES FOR STRENGTH TRAINING
- OVERLOAD increases the resistance during a selected phase (Concentric or Eccentric) of a repetition.
A NOTE ABOUT THE CONCENTRIC PHASE AND ECCENTRIC PHASE:
A rep has two different phases: the Concentric phase and the Eccentric phase. The concentric phase is when you pull the cables out against the resistance of the device or, in traditional weight lifting, raise the weight. The eccentric phase is when you release the cables back into the device, or in traditional weight lifting, lowering the weight. The concentric weight will apply during the concentric phase of your motion. If you stop moving during the exercise, the system will default to the concentric phase and will only return to the eccentric phase if you start an eccentric motion.
- CHAINS increase the resistance throughout the range of motion. At the minimum range of motion, there will be no additional weight. The chain weight will be slowly applied with your motions. The full chain weight will be applied at your maximum range of motion. When you start your set, the system will not start the Chains until it has determined your range of motion.
- BURNOUT increases or decreases the weight with each repetition of a set. The weight will adjust with each repetition unless the weight is higher than the maximum weight or lower than the minimum weight.
- PERTURBATION creates randomized impulses of force on the cables. Perturbation intensity is the relative strength of the random impulse - the higher the number, the greater the force impulse applied.
