The Training Tool
Patented because it’s one of a kind -successful because it’s easy to use!
The XCO-TRAINER (or briefly XCO) is a 26 cm long anodized, weather-resistant aluminum tube containing a highly specialized shale granular substance. Hold it like a dumb-bell and work out with dynamic exercises for the whole body. Swing rhymically when exercising and you will automatically activate the power of XCO. The oscillating mass of the XCO dynamically harnesses the power of your momentum and XCO unleashes a powerful conterbalance to your activity. This greatly increasing the effectiveness of your work out. You have created the XCO EFFECT. The effect trains your muscles as well as impacting on connective tissue (sinews, ligaments, joints) resulting in accelerated growth.
Do workouts like a top athlete
Whether football, basketball, handball, skiing or cross-country skiing – a lot of top athletes have worked with XCO for a long time. By now XCOs have arrived in general sports and can be found in many leading fitness centers.
XCO® TRAINING is extremely effective whilst being joint-friendly.
In fact, training with XCOs is more demanding but also much more effective than conventional training. Energy consumptions by XCO WALKING and XCO RUNNING is up to 32% higher compared to “normal” walking. At the same time the oscillating mass absorbs better parts of kinetic energy. XCO TRAINING is effective AND joint-friendly!
Using XCOs is really simple and appropriate for everybody because the intensity of the exercise is individually controllable. Step up your work out intensity and you step up XCO’s power. The harder you worjk the harder XCO works. As the oscillating mass builds up momentum, the movement of the granules from one end of the XCO to the other can be felt and heard. This indicates to the user that it has been properly activated.
Advantages of XCO® TRAINING:
- Whole-body training
- Loosens hardenings- Ideal for fat burning
- Tightens the body
- For outdoor and indoor use
- Suitable for group fitness and/or individual training
- Recognized form of physical therapy
- Trains body awareness
- Acoustic monitoring
- Individually adjustable
- Improves rhythm sense
XCO TRAINER EFFECT
The XCO-TRAINER, briefly called XCO is an aluminum tube which is two third filled with a highly specialized shale granular substance. The XCO is a dynamic swing dumb-bell.
By swinging the XCO the loose mass needs to accelerated and decelerated by muscular strength. The granular substance follows the impulse but slightly delayed. This creates the XCO EFFECT.
What is the XCO TRAINER EFFECT?
When XCOs are moved the loose mass reacts delayed. The bounce of the granular substance hits just when accelerating to the other direction. So the user must absorb the rebound PLUS move the mass. Moving the XCO back and forth gives a reactive impact. That means there’s an impact to your deeper muscles, sinews, ligaments, joints and collagen. That’s why we call it XCO: X-cellent COllagen.
Other then training with standard “dead” dumb-bells XCO TRAINING is joint-friendly. The granules have different sizes and therefore move with different speed. As a result they reach their final positions at slightly different moments and the bouncing energy is spread over those moments. Also, the loose mass absorbs a big part of kinetic energy.
As the loose mass builds up momentum, the movement of the granules from one end of the XCO to the other can be felt and heard and indicates to the user that it has been properly activated. That enables you to keep your moving quality constantly on a high level – even when jogging or walking.
Training with XCOs is more demanding but also much more effective than conventional training. A study from University of Nuremberg (Germany) found out that XCO WALKING respectively XCO RUNNING increases the heart rate by 23%, oxygen uptake by 32% and energy consumption by 33%.
The plyometric movements of large muscle groups produce an immediate increase in heart rate. On the other hand, in cardiovascular training, by smoothly transitioning from one individual exercise to the next, heart rate remains relatively constant. To achieve the full benefits of endurance training, such as fat-burning, the length of the exercise routine should be never be less than 30 minutes.
In a study conducted in 2007 by the Institute of Medical Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-
Nuremberg, compared the relative effectiveness of various exercises with and without the XCO-TRAINER. Using the respective parameters of heart rate, oxygen intake and energy expenditure. Given a maximal error margin of 5%, the differences were extremely significant and therefore very applicable.
It was proven that by activating arm and upper body musculature, the XCO-TRAINERs increased the intensity of the exercises, which is a factor of great importance in boosting the effectiveness of cardiovascular fitness training. Calorie burning was boosted by 33%., which also resulted in a higher rate of burning carbohydrates and fat. (cf. Stengel, S.K.; Kalender, W.A.; Kemmler, W.: Influence on Energy Expenditure, Oxygen Intake and Heat Rate during Walking and Running by Utilization of XCO-TRAINERs; Study by the Institute of Medical Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen- Nürnberg; 2007)
A key advantage that free weights have over stationery exercise equipment is the tremendous number of possible variations. The shifting masses of the XCO-TRAINERs produce other important benefits as well. The shifting mass causes a much different result than an inert mass is able to achieve. you get the biggest benefits at the end of your movements. The body absorbs the delayed impact of the shifting mass, which acts as a load charge on the muscle fibers. The connective tissues, including the ligaments and synovial joint capsules, all benefit alike from this delayed or REACTIVE IMPACT.
XCO-TRAINING improves both Intra- and inter-muscular coordination. It prepare musculature through rapid stretching-and-shortening cycles,as a result you improve your reaction times. The resulting improvement in coordination makes itself apparent by enhanced performance.
The increase or maintenance of flexibility is dependent on two factors. First, all peri- and intra-articulating joint structures (synovial joints and joint capsules, ligaments, etc.) must be able to facilitate flexibility. Secondly, the musculature stablises all of your movements no ,atter what the situation is.
It can be concluded that the XCO-TRAINER is a new comprehensive training tool that can significantly improve the effectiveness of fitness training.
