(On average a 33% strength gain after 24 weeks of strength training and a 41% strength gain after a year.)
You know it works, but ever wonder how? A big reason is because the Koko Smartrainer’s patented technology uses the Triple Progressive System.
- A movement or development toward a destination or a more advanced state, esp. gradually or in stages.
- A succession; a series.
Progression is extremely important when it comes to exercise program design in the following areas:
- Exercise Progression – Advancing from basic to complex exercises with same exercise group. For example, going from a Squat to a Squat to Upright Row to a Squat to Upright Row with Heel Raise.
- Pace Progression – Slowing down the pace of each exercise within each exercise session and over the course of a 24 session program. This, in turn, increases the “time under tension,” progressing from 30 to 45 to 60 seconds.
- % RM Progression – Progressively increasing the resistance or the load throughout a program – typically from 55% RM up to 80% RM. (RM is “repetition maximum” – the most weight you can lift for a defined number of exercise movements.)
…Now you understand “Triple!”
It’s hard to do on your own, but Koko precisely works progression in all three areas into each and every session and throughout all 100 Smartraining programs without you having to do a thing!
Koko’s Triple Progressive System = a simpler, safer, more effective workout and great RESULTS!!
Pretty cool, isn’t it?
