Kinesis Stations offer extensive versatility that can engage all your members
From a single station, your clients can perform numerous supported and ground-based movements. Here are a few examples from 3 of the Kinesis Stations that showcase the training variety:
Kinesis Stations - Press
2) From a seated position, hold the handles and press upward with one arm and downward with the other. In the next repetition reverse the directions.
3) In a standing position with your legs slightly apart, hold the handles and alternate arms in a forward press.
Kinesis Stations - Core
4) From a standing position, rest your lower back against the backrest and your pelvis on the support. Put on the straps connected to the cables above your shoulders and select the most comfortable grip position. Keeping your legs slightly bent, bend your torso forward. Return slowly to the starting position.
5) Place one leg forward and the other back. Put on the straps connected to the cables above your shoulders and select the most comfortable grip position. Control your stance and bend your torso forward. Without losing your balance, return slowly to the starting position.6) Standing up, hold the vertical cable, positioning yourself laterally to the machine and extending your arms in front of the cable with the handle at chest height. From this position, rotate your torso away from the machine, trying not to change the distance of your arms and body from the handle. Guide the motion with your shoulders, which rotate along with your torso.
Kinesis Stations – Step/Squat
7) Standing on the platform in front of the machine, hold the lower handles and put one foot forward on the raised step. From this position, push upward on the step, lifting the other leg off the platform, while keeping a grip on the handles. Try to keep your torso in line with your shoulders and the handles in line and near your torso. Go back down slowly and repeat.
8) Standing on the platform in front of the machine, hold the lower handles and drop into a squat position. Keep your arms perpendicular to the ground and the handles parallel to the platform. During this motion keep your back well aligned along with your shoulders, which should not tilt too far forward.
9) Stand with both feet on the raised step and your back to the machine. Hold the lower handles. Trying not to lose your balance, move one foot slowly forward, trying to touch the lower platform. To perform this movement, bend the standing leg, resisting and controlling the tension of the cables. Return slowly to the starting position and change legs.
