SPIN STRONG INCLUDES THREE MAIN FORCES
1. AIR RESISTANCE opposes forward/circular arm motion.
2. ARM LEVERAGE from outstretched or lifted arms magnifies the original spin resistance.
WEIGHT RESISTANCE plays a role and creates outward force from the axis of the spinning trainer.
While Spin Strong includes both air and weight resistance, it’s the unique emphasis on air resistance that makes Spin Strong so effective.
Weight based spin trainers create outward directed force. With weight based spinning, your hands are basically held in the same position while resisting the rotating outward force. Once the rotating weight is up to training speed, it acquires it’s own momentum and requires little effort to maintain it.
Spin training using air resistance is totally different. It’s always intensely resisting your forward movement. You must constantly pull through it, while also continuously changing direction.
As you increase speed, resistance is increased exponentially. For each doubling of air speed, air resistance is quadrupled. The result is a highly effective form of resistance training.
Using outstretched arms increases the Initial resistance. The arms act like levers, and the further your hands are held away from the body, the greater the resistance is magnified.
Additional ways to increase resistance include using more arm circle action versus wrist action and extending arms further away from the body. Also, configuring Spin Strong with six air resisters (purchased separately) versus five significantly increases resistance.
Protective eyewear is recommended.
