TRUE Fitness has created Composite Strength, a series of 3 strength machines for exercise, which includes the Full Body Press, Glute Press, and the Ab Crunch/Back Row. These composite motion machines are functional, safe, and can be used in various ways for any fitness routine. They are used for strength purposes, and if used together, create a full body workout. The Composite Series is a reliable mix of machines for anyone trying to improve their body stability and strength.
This series is very attractive. Meaning, anyone who takes a look at them would want to give them a try. When grouped together in a gym setting, the users will definitely know that these machines are supposed to be used in a complete workout with each other. Gyms or fitness centers can also hold classes for the series to teach people how to use the machines properly when first introduced. Form is highly important for use of these machines to prevent injury, and could be taught in the class or by an individual trainer in a one-on-one session.
Many functional exercise movements coincide with each range of movement provided on Composite Strength machines, replacing other movements for a higher calorie burn while cutting workout time in half.
The Full Body Press activates more skeletal musculature than any other machine on the market today. It works the chest, shoulders, core, hip flexors, quads, calves, and hamstrings by replacing movements such as:
By combining a reverse decline lunge motion and a chest press motion for faster, more accurate fitness results in one movement, the Glute Press provides users a complete upper and lower body workout simultaneously. By using the Glute Press users can skip the high step ups, box jumps, lunges, declining bench press, split squats and more since the machine targets the:
As for the Ab Crunch/ Back Row, you can replace motions such as:
The Ab Crunch/Back Row combines the benefits of core conditioning with a simultaneous knee raise and back row exercise, working the core, upper and lower back, upper and lower abdominals, and oblique muscles.
These three machines and the movements that go with them all can take training to the next level. By pairing the Composite Strength machines with one another or with TRUE’s HIT Cardio, users can experience high intensity interval training (HIIT) like never before..
The Composite Strength series alone can compose a HIIT workout by decreasing the volume of weights and increasing the amount of reps. A HIIT workout on the Composite Strength series is easy. Due to light starting weights, users of all levels can start with higher reps and a lower amount of weight to increase heart rate then add weights to incorporate muscle-building movements to challenge even the most elite athletes. A HIIT workout can also be accomplished by pairing the HIT Cardio, such as the Alpine Runner while using the Composite Strength pieces as tools in active rest.
HIIT training is one of the highest proven ways to lose body fat. In HIIT training, heart rate should increase and decrease in intervals to increase caloric burn. Start off with a fast pace on any HIT Cardio machine to get the heart rate up quickly, then use a machine from the Composite Strength series to slow it down to gain strength, stability, and coordination. Repeat as needed.
The Composite Series has a wide range of variety for those who want to strengthen their bodies, gain stability and coordination, and to overall get in shape. The three Composite Strength pieces are easily accessible and adjustable for users of all sizes and levels, yet smooth with every push and pull. You can experience the Composite Strength series with TRUE’s HIT Cardio as part of Next Level Training live at IHRSA 2017.
