The Cybex VR2 Single Axis Chest Press eliminates the danger of excessive stretch by providing an adjustable starting position. Therefore, when preset to the individual user’s structure/mechanics, also serves as a range of motion limit. The handles angle, allowing optimum average wrist position throughout the movement.
They are in a barbell or horizontal position to encourage motion in the horizontal plane as well as the optimal position of neutral shoulder rotation. Vertical or neutral handles are less effective for chest work as they encourage motion in the sagittal plane (shoulder flexion).
- Overhead pivot provides a more natural pattern when compared to lower pivoting units.
- Adjustable starting position allows appropriate range and improves safety.
- Sliding 5-LB increment weights allow the user to fine-tune resistance levels.
