The ability of the muscle to exert force during an activity, in other words maximal force you can apply against a load. The key to making your muscles stronger is working them against resistance: weights, gravity, and/or springs. Megaformer integrates the key elements of resistance and counter-resistance in a sequence that allows for periods of zero-gravity at peak muscle contraction. By exercising against the spring resistance, not only your muscle strength improves, but also our target slow twitch/fat burning muscle fibers stimulate.
The ability of the muscle to continue performing without fatigue. This is the ability for your body to keep working during continuous movement. Ironically, in order to perform without fatigue, you need to force the muscles but to a point. In Megaformer our main target is stimulating slow twitch muscle fibers that contract slowly and resistant to fatigue. These muscle fibers are utilized in endurance activities such as long-distance running, cycling or swimming. They are efficient at using oxygen for continuous, extended muscle contractions over long period of time.
The ability of the body's circulatory and respiratory systems (heart and lungs) to supply fuel to the tissues and cells during sustained physical activity. To improve your cardiovascular system, train the activities that keep your heart rate elevated at a safe level for a certain length of time. With Megaformer, each move require at least 60 seconds of constant, uninterrupted physical effort. This effort improves your cardiovascular system which has a direct impact on endurance and strength by controlling the oxygen flow to all your muscles.
The range of motion around a joint. Good flexibility in the joints can improve posture and helps to prevent injuries. If you want to improve your flexibility, your must perform activities that lengthen the muscles. Fortunately, every single move in Megaformer is designed to lenghten your muscles, as long as joints are not locked, effective range of motion kept and constant tension on muscles are maintained flexibility will improve each day better than yesterday.
