The CKC Trainer allows all users to exercise against closed chain forces while developing the proper form needed to prevent the aberrant motion patterns typically learned when functionally training against forces your structure has not yet adapted to. These aberrant motion patterns significantly contribute to the development of Degenerative Joint Disease, making the CKC Trainer an imperative tool for the training of optimal joint health.
It has been scientifically proven that functionally exercising your body against closed forces decreases your risk for injury. The CKC Trainer allows you to strengthen your upper body without causing undue stress on the vulnerable rotator cuff, and by developing proper unilateral lower extremity strength and movement patterns you are less likely to experience back and lower extremity dysfunction.
The ingenious design of the CKC Trainer allows for single arm and leg functional motion, which is difficult to execute through traditional training methods. Specific exercises like one arm push ups, one arm pull ups and single leg squats allows users to develop strength equally between limbs. This is important as you are only as strong as your weakest link.
