To increase and maximize muscular development a training program should include a purposeful manipulation of variables such as volume, intensity, rest intervals, exercise selection, contraction type, and velocity. This also means program design should include single-joint and multi-joint exercises to closely mimic daily tasks and sport-specific movement patterns. The inclusion of single-limb exercise ensures the targeting of often used movement patterns and aides in correcting imbalances that may occur. The acquisition of single limb movement exercise devices integrated into an exercise facility is a necessary part of the rehabilitative process.

The Pendulum Seated Squat Pro is a unilateral and bilateral machine that addresses the important facets of training to maximize development of the lower limbs. Simply and quickly disengage the work arms to move from pressing with both legs to pressing with one or vice versa. A tremendous way to Get Strong.

Closed And Open Chain

Open kinetic chain exercises of the lower limb are movements, where the distal segment is unloaded and free to move. The opposite is true of closed kinetic chain exercises, whereby  there is enough resistance to prohibit free motion.

Closed kinetic chain exercises are movements such as squats, Pendulum Squat Pro, leg presses and lunges, while open chain exercises are actions like leg curls, leg extensions and the Pendulum Reverse Glute Ham.

The kinetic chain can be understood as interrelated joints and body parts working with one another during motion. This creates a chain of events that affects the movement of neighboring joints and segments.

The advantage of open chain movements is that they tend to be better at isolating muscle and often are selected for specific rehabilitation and used to accentuate performance. While closed chain movements in general would be classified as more functional and closely approximating movements that are used in sport and daily life.

2-for-2 Method

Some trainers, coaches and athletes use what is called the 2-for-2 Method for increasing training load. The rule is if the trainee can perform two or more repetitions over one’s ‘repetition goal’ in the last set of an exercise, for two consecutive workouts, the weight is added for that particular exercise the next training session.
