Introduction

Introducing Spin Strong, the revolutionary handheld spin trainers that use air resistance for explosive strength and cardio exercise. While there are lots of new strength training products each year, there are few that provide something original or uniquely valuable. Spin Strong is the rare exception.

The specific details of how Spin Strong creates intense air resistance, the complex body mechanics involved and why this type of strength training is so valuable will be covered here, along with instructions for the nine key Spin Strong upper body exercises and their many variations.

 

 

 

 

The innovative Spin Strong Trainers

Spin Strong starts with the well known type of resistance training provided by a jump rope, which is air resistance created by circular arm movement. Jumping rope is excellent for cardio, and it is really good for upper body strength conditioning, even with just one basic arm spinning resistance exercise.

Imagine if you could do many more of these arm exercises?  Well, now you can. Spin Strong replaces the confining rope with a pair of spinning fin cords that provide freedom of movement and nine key exercises, as well as unlimited variations. Spin Strong also allows fuller arm movements for higher intensity training, and Spin Strong can be combined with leg exercises for cardio and full body training.

 

The Nine Key Spin Strong Resistance Exercises

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spin Strong’s Innovative Design

Spin Strong consists of a pair of handle attached fin-cords. Each of which includes an eighteen inch spin cable and five (or six) multi-fin modules that together create the air resistance when spun in use. Each fin module is made of flexible TPU plastic, has a hollow hub, and includes three attached fins that are symmetrically spaced around and extended outward. The fin modules are free to rotate around the spin cable, but don’t. As the cables and attached fin modules are spun in hand, the air force is balanced on each side of the cable for each fin module, holding it stable as it moves through the air, generating continuous air resistance.

 

 

Air Resistance and Circular Arm Movement

 

Air resistance opposes an objects forward motion. In the case of circular movement, it’s constantly changing direction, but it’s the same principal. Air resistance provides continuous and directly opposing force to an arm’s “forward”movement along the path of the circle, or around the circle. 

Unlike traditional upper body strength training, air resistance combined with circular arm movement strengthens for movement in every direction, especially when using all the exercises of Spin Strong. It produces extremely fast resistance training, which improves quickness and coordination, and it is continuous, which improves upper body endurance.

 

Air resistance is a function of speed and the size of the object (which determines the amount of air displacement). Spin Strong uses light and relatively small fin modules, but they are capable of being spun fast. So, they are highly effective at creating high intensity air resistance. This approach is so innovative, Spin Strong is patented.

Air resistance increases exponentially. For each doubling of speed, air resistance quadruples. It is not unusual to do 200+ circular arm movements per minute. As we will see later, circular arm movement is complex and each circle is equal to over eight sequential arm movements. So, this is a high number of arm movements in a short period of time, making Spin Strong very efficient.  Doing thousands of small resistance movements add up to significant and interrelated strength training. This is a new and beneficial type of strength training.

 

Spin Strong is not isometric exercise. There is significant movement occurring, even if it looks like small arm circles. Weight based circular arm resistance is much closer to isometric exercise, because spinning a weighted object creates an outwardly directed force, and you can basically hold your hand in one place to do complete those circles. Weight based circular training provides little resistance until you use a heavy weight which would be dangerous to spin.  Also, weights like dumb bells do not provide direct opposition to forward movement because they are always exerting a downward gravitational force.

 

 

The Forces Involved in Using Spin Strong

While air resistance is the primary force of Spin Strong training, other types are involved. Spin Strong trainers weigh only11 ounces, but this small amount of weight works with the air resistance to make it dynamic and provide fast training.

The other type of force is from using extended arms or “arm leverage”, with the shoulder joint acting as the fulcrum. Extending arms out and/or up intensifies and increases the leveraged resistance.

Additional ways to increase resistance include using more arm circle action versus wrist action. Also, configuring Spin Strong with an additional sixth set of air resisters (which can be purchased separately) significantly increases resistance.

 

 

 

The Spin Strong Approach to Jumping Rope

 

Spin Strong provides realistic jump rope exercise using a different formula for air resistance than a jump rope. A jump rope moves through the air faster, because it is traveling around a much bigger circle each revolution. But Spin Strong trainers provide bigger objects (and more air displacement). Spin Strong trainers have been sized to provide the normal amount of air resistance when used for jump rope exercise.

 

  

 

 

 

Complex Arm and Upper Body Movement

 

Spin Strong training uses flexible fin-cords. So the only way to spin them is to use a “pulling movement”, which creates a valuable whip-like movement and a sequenced  activation of muscles, bones  and joints from the upper body, through the shoulders, arms and into the hands. This whip-like action integrates strength, energy and movement from the upper body and transfers it to the arms and hands.

This Spin Strong whip-like training is very complex movement. It includes much of the upper body, the shoulder joint, the most complex circular joint in the human body, and which has a full range of 360 degree movement. It also includes the elbow joint and the wrist joint, which is also a circular joint with a full range of 360 degree movement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Four Arm Movements in One

 

A circular movement of the arm, or wrist, is called circumduction. It equals four sequential movements of flexion (up), abduction (out), extension (down) and Adduction (in).

Spin Strong uses circumduction at the shoulder joint, including these four sequential movements, as well as at the wrist joint, including four similar sequential movements. And in between these two joints, Spin Strong uses the complex elbow with multiple joints for constantly flexing and rotating the arm, as well as turning the forearm with pronation and supination. The sum total of all these arm movements is conservatively ten sequential movements. This is incredibly complicated circular arm movement, especially at such fast speeds.

 

 

Strengthens Major Arm and Shoulder Muscles


Spin Strong movements engage and strengthen all the major muscles of the hands, arms and shoulders. They engage multiple muscle groups of the chest and upper back, and stabilize the core. The hands are gripping and spinning the Spin Strong trainers, which likewise engage the forearms. Biceps and triceps are engaged in elbow and shoulder movement.

Spin Strong training builds fast twitch muscles for spe and increase the kind of strength that improves endurance. The many different arm spinning exercises that can be done with Spin Strong make this unique and very effective training for the upper body and especially for the arms and shoulders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Nine Key Spin Strong Exercises

Spin Strong trainers include a complete set of nine key arm spinning exercises. And there are a huge number of variations. These exercises can be divided into three general areas of movement:

  1. Out to the sides
  2. Out to the front
  3. Above the shoulders or overhead

Each of the following nine key exercises are described as being done in a specific arm and hand position. However, you can and are encouraged to move the position in which your hands are held while doing the spinning. Slightly moving hands up and down, left and right or in and out create different exercise, train muscles differently and increase endurance while exercising.

You can move from one exercise to another without stopping or rest between exercises. You can combine the Spin Strong exercises with leg exercise. You can use one arm at a time, which allows you to go extra fast while resting the other arm. This is almost like HIIT Training except one arm is always doing a high intensity interval.

You can find further instructions and workout videos for the nine key exercises, as well as full body workout videos at SpinStrong.com/train.

 


OUT TO THE SIDES

 

Jump rope arms

Use the arm spinning motion of jumping rope with arms at your side. Use different speeds and both forward and backward spin directions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The T 

Use arm spinning movement with arms out to the sides at shoulder height and parallel to the floor. Doing it with a backwards spin direction opens up the shoulders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUT TO THE FRONT


 The Propellers

Use arm spinning movement with arms extended out to the front, typically close to shoulder height.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Figure Eight

Using only one arm, do a loop movement on the right side, starting low and moving up then crossing in front while moving arm down and then do upward loop movement on the left side, etc. Do exercise with each arm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 In Front Synchronized  

Use circular arm spinning movements out to the front with arms synchronized (i.e., with trainers always pointing in the same direction).  Circles can be large or small.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOVE THE SHOULDERS - HORIZONTAL

Overhead in Synch

 Use horizontal arm spinning overhead with arms synchronized (i.e., with trainers always pointing in the same direction).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One Hand Overhead

Use one arm extended overhead with arm spinning movement in a horizontal plane. Do exercise with each arm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


ABOVE THE SHOULDERS - AT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE

The 45 Degree Angle 

Spinning only one arm, use a 45 degree angled spin plane with the arm above and slightly to the front of the head. Do exercise with each arm. 

Spin in the opposite direction. Excellent to combine with lunges.v

 

 

 

 

 

The “Y”

Use arm spinning motion with arms extended above the shoulders in the shape of a “Y”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Spin Strong Mission

Provide strength training and full body exercise, accessible by everyone

 

 

SPIN STRONG WAS INVENTED BY A PERSON LIVING WITH PARKINSON’S DISEASE

Phillip Davies Is the inventor and founder of Spin Strong. Phil is passionate about fitness and has three patented inventions in the area. Phil was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009. A few years ago, Phil‘s strength and ease of movement began to decline, and he invented Spin Strong, which involved reworking an earlier invention to help improve his strength.

 

SINCE TRAINING WITH SPIN STRONG, PHIL HAS SEEN SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN HIS STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE

After training with Spin Strong, Phil has much more strength and endurance. For example, he was only able to do hedge trimming for 30 minutes and now can go for three hours or more. His endurance for hitting the punching bag increased by 300%. Phil continues his battle against the progression of Parkinson’s and is having good success thanks to his fitness training including regular workouts with Spin Strong.

WIDE RANGE OF USES AND USERS

As it turns out, the invention provides such a wide range in intensity and uses, it fits the needs of practically everyone, including those beginning their fitness adventure to extremely fit athletes.

Slightly moving hands up and down, left and right or in and out create different exercise, train muscles differently and increase endurance while exercising.

You can move from one exercise to another without stopping or rest between exercises. You can combine the Spin Strong exercises with leg exercise. You can use one arm at a time, which allows you to go extra fast while resting the other arm. This is almost like HIIT Training except one arm is always doing a high intensity interval.

SPIN STRONG WAS INVENTED BY A PERSON LIVING WITH PARKINSON’S DISEASE

Phillip Davies Is the inventor and founder of Spin Strong. Phil is passionate about fitness and has three patented inventions in the area. Phil was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009. A few years ago, Phil‘s strength and ease of movement began to decline, and he invented Spin Strong, which involved reworking an earlier invention to help improve his strength.

 

SINCE TRAINING WITH SPIN STRONG, PHIL HAS SEEN SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN HIS STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE

After training with Spin Strong, Phil has much more strength and endurance. For example, he was only able to do hedge trimming for 30 minutes and now can go for three hours or more. His endurance for hitting the punching bag increased by 300%. Phil continues his battle against the progression of Parkinson’s and is having good success thanks to his fitness training including regular workouts with Spin Strong.

WIDE RANGE OF USES AND USERS

As it turns out, the invention provides such a wide range in intensity and uses, it fits the needs of practically everyone, including those beginning their fitness adventure to extremely fit athletes.

Introduction

Introducing Spin Strong, the revolutionary handheld spin trainers that use air resistance for explosive strength and cardio exercise. While there are lots of new strength training products each year, there are few that provide something original or uniquely valuable. Spin Strong is the rare exception.

The specific details of how Spin Strong creates intense air resistance, the complex body mechanics involved and why this type of strength training is so valuable will be covered here, along with instructions for the nine key Spin Strong upper body exercises and their many variations.

 

 

 

 

The innovative Spin Strong Trainers

Spin Strong starts with the well known type of resistance training provided by a jump rope, which is air resistance created by circular arm movement. Jumping rope is excellent for cardio, and it is really good for upper body strength conditioning, even with just one basic arm spinning resistance exercise.

Imagine if you could do many more of these arm exercises?  Well, now you can. Spin Strong replaces the confining rope with a pair of spinning fin cords that provide freedom of movement and nine key exercises, as well as unlimited variations. Spin Strong also allows fuller arm movements for higher intensity training, and Spin Strong can be combined with leg exercises for cardio and full body training.

 

The Nine Key Spin Strong Resistance Exercises

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spin Strong’s Innovative Design

Spin Strong consists of a pair of handle attached fin-cords. Each of which includes an eighteen inch spin cable and five (or six) multi-fin modules that together create the air resistance when spun in use. Each fin module is made of flexible TPU plastic, has a hollow hub, and includes three attached fins that are symmetrically spaced around and extended outward. The fin modules are free to rotate around the spin cable, but don’t. As the cables and attached fin modules are spun in hand, the air force is balanced on each side of the cable for each fin module, holding it stable as it moves through the air, generating continuous air resistance.

 

 

Air Resistance and Circular Arm Movement

 

Air resistance opposes an objects forward motion. In the case of circular movement, it’s constantly changing direction, but it’s the same principal. Air resistance provides continuous and directly opposing force to an arm’s “forward”movement along the path of the circle, or around the circle. 

Unlike traditional upper body strength training, air resistance combined with circular arm movement strengthens for movement in every direction, especially when using all the exercises of Spin Strong. It produces extremely fast resistance training, which improves quickness and coordination, and it is continuous, which improves upper body endurance.

 

Air resistance is a function of speed and the size of the object (which determines the amount of air displacement). Spin Strong uses light and relatively small fin modules, but they are capable of being spun fast. So, they are highly effective at creating high intensity air resistance. This approach is so innovative, Spin Strong is patented.

Air resistance increases exponentially. For each doubling of speed, air resistance quadruples. It is not unusual to do 200+ circular arm movements per minute. As we will see later, circular arm movement is complex and each circle is equal to over eight sequential arm movements. So, this is a high number of arm movements in a short period of time, making Spin Strong very efficient.  Doing thousands of small resistance movements add up to significant and interrelated strength training. This is a new and beneficial type of strength training.

 

Spin Strong is not isometric exercise. There is significant movement occurring, even if it looks like small arm circles. Weight based circular arm resistance is much closer to isometric exercise, because spinning a weighted object creates an outwardly directed force, and you can basically hold your hand in one place to do complete those circles. Weight based circular training provides little resistance until you use a heavy weight which would be dangerous to spin.  Also, weights like dumb bells do not provide direct opposition to forward movement because they are always exerting a downward gravitational force.

 

 

The Forces Involved in Using Spin Strong

While air resistance is the primary force of Spin Strong training, other types are involved. Spin Strong trainers weigh only11 ounces, but this small amount of weight works with the air resistance to make it dynamic and provide fast training.

The other type of force is from using extended arms or “arm leverage”, with the shoulder joint acting as the fulcrum. Extending arms out and/or up intensifies and increases the leveraged resistance.

Additional ways to increase resistance include using more arm circle action versus wrist action. Also, configuring Spin Strong with an additional sixth set of air resisters (which can be purchased separately) significantly increases resistance.

 

 

 

The Spin Strong Approach to Jumping Rope

 

Spin Strong provides realistic jump rope exercise using a different formula for air resistance than a jump rope. A jump rope moves through the air faster, because it is traveling around a much bigger circle each revolution. But Spin Strong trainers provide bigger objects (and more air displacement). Spin Strong trainers have been sized to provide the normal amount of air resistance when used for jump rope exercise.

 

  

 

 

 

Complex Arm and Upper Body Movement

 

Spin Strong training uses flexible fin-cords. So the only way to spin them is to use a “pulling movement”, which creates a valuable whip-like movement and a sequenced  activation of muscles, bones  and joints from the upper body, through the shoulders, arms and into the hands. This whip-like action integrates strength, energy and movement from the upper body and transfers it to the arms and hands.

This Spin Strong whip-like training is very complex movement. It includes much of the upper body, the shoulder joint, the most complex circular joint in the human body, and which has a full range of 360 degree movement. It also includes the elbow joint and the wrist joint, which is also a circular joint with a full range of 360 degree movement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Four Arm Movements in One

 

A circular movement of the arm, or wrist, is called circumduction. It equals four sequential movements of flexion (up), abduction (out), extension (down) and Adduction (in).

Spin Strong uses circumduction at the shoulder joint, including these four sequential movements, as well as at the wrist joint, including four similar sequential movements. And in between these two joints, Spin Strong uses the complex elbow with multiple joints for constantly flexing and rotating the arm, as well as turning the forearm with pronation and supination. The sum total of all these arm movements is conservatively ten sequential movements. This is incredibly complicated circular arm movement, especially at such fast speeds.

 

 

Strengthens Major Arm and Shoulder Muscles


Spin Strong movements engage and strengthen all the major muscles of the hands, arms and shoulders. They engage multiple muscle groups of the chest and upper back, and stabilize the core. The hands are gripping and spinning the Spin Strong trainers, which likewise engage the forearms. Biceps and triceps are engaged in elbow and shoulder movement.

Spin Strong training builds fast twitch muscles for spe and increase the kind of strength that improves endurance. The many different arm spinning exercises that can be done with Spin Strong make this unique and very effective training for the upper body and especially for the arms and shoulders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Nine Key Spin Strong Exercises

Spin Strong trainers include a complete set of nine key arm spinning exercises. And there are a huge number of variations. These exercises can be divided into three general areas of movement:

  1. Out to the sides
  2. Out to the front
  3. Above the shoulders or overhead

Each of the following nine key exercises are described as being done in a specific arm and hand position. However, you can and are encouraged to move the position in which your hands are held while doing the spinning. Slightly moving hands up and down, left and right or in and out create different exercise, train muscles differently and increase endurance while exercising.

You can move from one exercise to another without stopping or rest between exercises. You can combine the Spin Strong exercises with leg exercise. You can use one arm at a time, which allows you to go extra fast while resting the other arm. This is almost like HIIT Training except one arm is always doing a high intensity interval.
