EQUIPMENT FOR ISOTONIC TRAINING

One of the benefits of using isotonic machines is first and foremost the greater security of use. In fact, it is almost impossible, during training with one of these machines, to damage the body as the weight is not suspended but fixed and therefore can not hit or fall on those who use it.
Another advantage is the type of exercises that, being mainly monoarticular, give greater muscular isolation.
Learning times are much shorter. In fact, with constrained movements, the end result will always be the same regardless of the applied force and direction given to the tool.
They are therefore perfect for the beginner who does not have good coordinating abilities yet, and movements can be easily assimilated. The disadvantages in the use of isotonic machines, however, relate to movements that are stereotypical, that is, movement is that and can not be altered, as well as the execution speed that is reduced and at an ever-increasing rate.
The major disadvantage, however, is the lack of coordinated engagement due to the constrained movements and the engagement of very simple gestures that mainly concern a single articulation (single-art exercises).
Being primarily mono-articular exercises, they stimulate a lower hormonal response. In some machinery where pulleys are present, the eccentric work is lower, while in the cams the tension and the muscular velocity are constant.
In most isotonic machines (but not all), it is not possible to verify either the amount of force or the velocity of movement that differs between the right and left parts of the body. In addition, these tools need external adjustment that sometimes (especially in excessively high or low subjects) does not respect the articular levers of the subject, leading to physiologically incorrect postures and therefore forced trajectories.
It is good to use them when you are totally inexperienced or when you need to train only a precise part of your body.

CARDIO TRAINING EQUIPMENT


The term cardiofitness means a set of exercises that help to improve the most important system for the health of our body, that is, the cardiorespiratory system, consisting of lungs and heart - the true motor of our body.
With cardiofitness we increase resistance, we condition the body for athletic-recreational activities, reduce stress, prevent the risk of illness and prepare for a healthier life thanks to a body not only more pleasant because it is lean but also more efficient (decreases the risks associated with heart disease, stroke, hypertension and stroke).

The exercises that form part of cardio-fitness are all exercises that aim to simulate a "moderate movement", such as what can be done every day by walking, climbing stairs, or riding a bicycle.

The use of tools simply replicates these exercises, but with greater control of useful parameters such as heart rate, time spent, and burned calories.

A cardiofitness training should last for 15-60 minutes and should take place between 3 and 5 times a week.
The best tools for a good cardiofitness workout are: heart rate monitor, treadmill, elliptical and exercise bike.

FREE TRAINING EQUIPMENT

Using free weights as a workout with overloads allows you to work with movements that are not constrained and therefore the trajectories are physiologically more correct with an articulation of greater movement.
Coordinated effort with free weights is also higher, in addition to involving muscular activity, both concentric and eccentric, it employs more complex muscular components that hardly isolate a single muscle group.
In the weights room, even a single movement with free weights can affect multiple joints simultaneously (polyarticular exercises).
They also stimulate increased anabolic hormone response with testosterone and growth hormone production, thanks to the involvement of large muscle masses. They also involve the muscles stabilizing the movement. These, through their static contraction, allow the maintenance of proper posture.
The speed of the movements may vary (while in the isotonic machinery it is constant), even carrying explosive power gestures.
The free weights are also more versatile, in fact you can adapt them to several exercises with the ability to vary the gesture.
The disadvantages of using free weights are the longer learning times and the need for more assistance in learning and training because of the high level of coordination effort.
Movements must in fact be controlled over all space dimensions (unrestricted free movements).

Discovering the Functional Training

In the weight room, it is also possible to perform functional training, an exercise that is based on exercises that can mimic the movements that the body performs in the environment.
This workout does not use complicated machinery, it is achieved by placing the body and its movement as the hub of the exercises.
The work of many muscles simultaneously allows you to work in the weight room for a short time but achieve great results.
