Are you safe strength training? Do you know if you are overtraining? How does your body and your joints feel the day after your strength training session?
You may receive the benefits you are looking for in strength training, but the longer term effect on your body could be very damaging. Most of us are training correctly, but at some point, we may have crossed the line.
ARX has now introduced a strength training program that ensures safe strength training all the time, every time especial in rehab situations.
ARX is safe for all forms of rehabilitation, offering the full spectrum of resistance ranging from passive resistance (stretching) all the way to eccentric loading (negatives). There are no weights to drop, the speed is manageable and controlled, and the machine can never act upon the user. This means that a user can never encounter any forces that they did not first produce, and this never-excessive scenario dramatically lowers the risk of injury.

For those interest in the effects of overtraining here is an extract from an article on DARWINIAN MEDICINE – AN EVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO HEALTH AND DISEASE
“I didn’t experience the problems I did because I lifted with poor technique or didn’t eat enough; rather, my body didn’t function optimally because I did too much resistance exercise, too often. This downward spiral began a little over a decade ago, as I started getting “obsessed” with strength training. I trained multiple times every week, did almost every set to failure, blasted each muscle group once or twice a week, and rarely left the gym with much energy left in the tank.
In retrospect, I obviously see that this type of program is anything but balanced, but back then, I didn’t recognize the inherent problems with my high-volume, high-intensity workouts. Most fitness competitors, bodybuilders, and even average Joes at the gym seemed to follow this type of approach, so why shouldn’t I? I just wanted to get big and strong. I also wanted to be healthy; but the problem was that I thought my heavy training regime was enhancing my health, while in reality, it was undermining it.”
