THIS CONCENTRIC FLUID POWER TRAINING SYSTEM DELIVERS THE ULTIMATE POWER ENDURANCE WORKOUT.
In 2018, FDF will launch its first concentric fluid power training system. A six-piece circuit, the first four pieces are due for release in Q2 and available for demo at TaiSPO and FIBO. The final PowerZone pieces, Power Climb and Power Press will be released in Q3.
What Is Concentric Fluid Power Training?
The PowerZone pieces are built to deliver concentric resistance only. Therefore, once you’ve completed the drive resistance phase of a movement (muscle shortening phase), you’re done; there’s no resistance on the eccentric (muscle lengthening) phase (the part that causes fatigue). This could be compared to a weightlifter who is trained to drop the weight at the top of the movement, rather than lowering it under strain.
To really understand the essence of concentric fluid power training, you first need to understand the essence of power endurance training. Power is the most functional form of fitness; it is the combination of strength and speed. Endurance however, adds an aerobic component, which is central to group training.
The unique advantage of FDF’s patented fluid resistance, the mechanics behind every PowerZone unit, is the ability to apply peak power to the entire range of motion without risk. It is practically impossible to hurt yourself because the force is simply based on your output. The more force you generate, the more resistance you receive.
Why Is PowerZone Circuit Training A Game Changer?
The PowerZone will transform the group circuit mentality due to its functional flexibility and ability to accommodate such a broad range of users at the same time – from a teen, senior or average gym goer, through to elite athlete. The PowerZone will even satisfy the high intensity and volume of training necessary to supplement traditional Olympic lifting without compromise.
By way of example, two individuals with massively different abilities could appear to be doing the same workout, but can both be training at an individual peak power.
From complexes to functional training, the PowerZone allows you to perform Olympic style movements without the technical skill, risk of injury, or intimidation that typically comes with that environment.
Its small footprint, yet high volume, high intensity range of movements really does provide a solution for group training that keeps patrons safe and is easy to administer with very little knowhow.
