IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE IN ALL THREE DISCIPLINES AT THE SAME TIME
ThoraxTrainer™ imitates the movements of swimming, but you get far more resistance than in the water. You increase your core stability, strength and endurance faster with ThoraxTrainer™ compared to training in the water. This leads to more power in your stroke and a better position in the water.
ThoraxTrainer™ is designed so that for each pole stroke you must push with your legs with the same power as you do with your arms and upper body. It provides a highly efficient endurance strength training of the thighs, buttocks and hamstings resulting in increased power on the pedals.
In ThoraxTrainer™ you even train your core, leg muscles and the muscles under your feet. This will give you an enhanced “bounce” in every stride because your core absorbs the shock (impact) from the ground – you will not “loose the hip” and your foot is bouncing better. This gives you increased speed, better running technique over time and reduced risk of injuries.
RESEARCH PROJECT ON PERFORMANCE LEVEL WITH TRIATHLETES
Six triathletes participated in a training project over a 12 weeks training program with 3 x ThoraxTrainer HIT intervals per week, and reduced traditional training in the three disci- plines. They were tested before and after in 1200 m. swim- ming, 20 km cycling and 3000 m running.
The illustration shows improvements in seconds for the three respective disciplines and in total.
All six triathletes improved in the 3 disciplines, and they all achieved Personal best times in the IRONMAN Copenhagen. 2013
“After usingThoraxTrainer™ for one month, I can feel an improvement in both running and swimming. I use the ThoraxTrainer in adition to my daily training 2-3 times a week. It has definitely strengthened my core and I have gained more stability in running, and therefore I run more economical. It’s a great exercise which is very gentle to the body”
Pro-triathlete, winner of IRONMAN Copenhagen 2014
“The ThoraxTrainer™ is extremely useful if you have a time constricted program as a triathlete It exercise all muscles of the body – and you get it all: Strength, core and cardio at the same time. I use it about 2×30 minutes a week, which saves me 6-10 hours a week on swimming incl. transportation.”
“After 14 days of training on the ThoraxTrainer™ three times a week for 15-40 minutes I swam under 26 sec at 50 meter free for the first time 10 years! I feel positive effects when running and cycling, and I look more trimmed”.
