Pendulum 3-Way Row
Contralateral is defined as 'pertaining to the other side'. Ipsilateral is considered the opposite of contralateral and occurs on the same side. When you train one limb at a time there is always an effect, because of neural flow to the contralateral limb even if the limb is uninvolved in direct exercise.
As far back as 1894 researchers had determined that muscular strength and skill learning could be improved in the contralateral limb following unilateral training. The term cross education was coined and referenced the gains made that were transferred to the contralateral limb following a unilateral training program of the ipsilateral limb.
Unilateral Training on the Pendulum 3-Way
Adding single limb movements that take advantage of the principle of cross education in a training program can improve overall strength, correct muscle imbalances, is an important part of the rehabilitative process and augments overall growth.
The Pendulum 3-Way Row is a bilateral and unilateral exercise device that can be used for not one but three areas of the back and posterior shoulder. A great way to Get Strong.
