Hydraulic Based Equipments
based equipments are based on the latest Hydraulic principle.These
equipments do not rely upon gravity, i.e. a person accomplishes/achieves
twice as much positive workout within the same amount of time
as compared to Weight based equipments. In other words it cuts
down the workout time by half as compared to the weight based
based on Hydraulic principle are 100% safe and can be used by
any age group (from 5years 85 years) by both male and female,
as it adjusts automatically and continuously to the strength,
power, the speed output and the need of the person using it. It
combines the best of Isotonic, Iso-kinetic and Isometric exercises.
In hydraulic machines
the resistance varies depending upon the speed and the force applied,
i.e. Higher the speed at which the force is applied, higher the
resistance will be and lower the speed at which the force applied,
lower will be the resistance. In no case it can over strain the
muscle groups unless a person tries himself by applying more force
than his capacity.
A person can start doing
his workout from any position and leave anywhere even in the mid-way,
very safely without any fear of accident because nothing will
or can come crashing down on him/her.It is mainly designed for
fitness. These machines are not for bodybuilding but they can
be used for bodybuilding.These machines give aerobic benefits.
Hydraulic based equipments
increases fitness level and improves body-shape by fast and repeated
workout.Circuit training i.e. set of repeated series of exercises,
is very easily attained in these machines.It provide maximum conditioning
in minimum space and time with maximum safety.There is no sound
generated when a person does his daily workout on these machines.
They are portable and
freestanding as they does not need any foundation/fixing to the
floor/walls and can be moved anywhere at any time.These machines
uses, no chains, no cams, no cranks, no water buckets and gravity
acting weights, which can make people hurt them while exercising.It
can be placed directly on the floor. Thus one can keep the workout
place more Hygienic by avoiding carpet or rubber flooring.
You can have marble or
granite flooring which is easier to clean and is more hygienic.These
machines do not need a supporter/instructor on every time workout,
as these machines keep on adjusting automatically and continuously
to the need and capacity of a person every time he uses.It is
essential to do workout with one side positive and one side negative
for proper muscle development.
These machines improve
Aerobic endurance, flexibility, muscular strength, cardio-vascular
conditioning and stamina. The user gains maximum flexibility,
as there is no chance of stiffness in the muscles and minimizes
the risk of building very stiff body.Due to busy schedule, if
you stop workout on Hydraulic based equipments there is no chance
that your muscles will hang and leave the bones.
These machines need hardly
any maintenance.These machines are the best for rehabilitation
as they help in the quicker/faster recovery of a person from illness
and attain back his fitness level.
Weight Based Equipments
Weight based equipments
are obsolete and out dated. These equipments are directly related
to gravitational force.They are risky, dangerous, unsafe, prone
to injuries or accidents and different health ailments/ problems.Only
Iso-kinetic benefits are attained in Weight based equipments.
In case of conventional
weight based machines, the person doing workout gets tired after
sometime. He is forced to lift the same weight, with which he
started. Eg. Suppose he starts his workout by lifting 50 kgs weight.
After 2-3 minutes he will get tired, then either he will have
to take rest in between for 5-6 minutes for next set of workout
or he will have to reduce the weight, say from 50 to 49-48-47-46-45-44-43-42
and so on which is not practical in case of weight based machines.
A person has to start
his workout from a fixed starting position and leave at a fixed
leaving position.These machines are basically designed for bodybuilding
and not for fitness.Aerobic benefits and Circuit training are
not possible in these equipments.These machines occupy lot of
space and workout time is 4 times higher than Hydraulic equipments.
They generate lot of
sound disturbing other people/ members, when a person does his
workout.They require foundation i.e. fixing to the floor, for
a person to start his workout.These machines uses, chains, pulleys
and weights for workout.In case of Weight based equipments,
a carpet or rubber flooring is a must to avoid damage to the floor
because there is fear of weights falling on the floor and to get
rid of the Bang-Bang sound while doing workout.
Carpet flooring is not
hygienic and rubber is prone to allergies.A full time instructor/
supervisor is required for ladies and gents separately in case
of these machines.The consequence of exercising on weight-based
equipment is, development of very thick muscles and stiff body
resulting in sprain very often.
If you stop workout on
weight-based equipments, your muscles will start hanging and will
leave the bones in the later age. The result can be seen from
the body builders who have stopped their daily workout.These machines
need regular maintenance and servicing.Not good for rehabilitation.
(If used, it should be used under supervision of qualified person).
