Vert© Computerized Training
VERT© training revolves around the science of isokinetics and its application to sports performance. When training to improve performance, it is important to analyze and then enhance the speed at which the athlete moves from point A to point B, and how fast the extremities move throwing or kicking an object. How quickly he or she "explodes" when leaping, jumping, moving forward or backward or from side to side, or how fast the athlete reacts when placed in time sensitive athletic situations are all part of this science.
We ask the question: "Is the athlete who can squat 500 pounds, bench press 400 pounds, or clean 300 pounds the best athlete?" They are probably the strongest athlete, but not necessarily the best performing athlete. Why? Primarily with free weights and weight machines, the athlete is training at speeds of seven to ten degrees per second while their sport requires them to perform at 300 to 900 degrees per second on the field of play. The athlete's overall strength is very important! With VERT©, however, our secret is to increase strength and thus power, by training the athlete at top speeds. Strength training in a controlled environment at ten times the speed the athlete normally trains when using free weights, allows the athlete to simultaneously train the velocity portion (the nervous system) of the power equation for maximum strength and "Peak Power Performance". VERT© training is in essence, power training. As an example, if two people can bench press 200 pounds but one can do it in half the time it means they both have the same strength, but the faster person has created more power. Now that we have learned how to apply computer driven power training, we can dynamically impact strength, speed, quickness, explosion, endurance and recovery with consistent and quantifiable accuracy.
With Vert© the user can:
* create sport-specific programs that are computer generated and can be geared for any fitness level and age group.
* program machines to provide resistance in all of the following modes separately or in any combination: Iso-kinetic, Isometric, Isotonic, Variable Velocity, Variable Resistance.
* perform “bi-directional” exercises which allow training of two or more opposing muscle groups within the same repetition. Examples: Arm curl - Biceps up, triceps down.
* perform 20 times more foot pounds of work than conventional weight training in a fraction of the time. More results in less time.
* perform double-concentric contractions in the same repetition eliminating post-exercise muscle soreness. No load on the joints or stretching and tearing of the muscle.
* record, store, compare and analyze every workout. The computer keeps track of improvement and displays results in the form of charts and graphs.
