SETUP & GETTING STARTED
We want to ensure you get the most out of the T2 Iso-Trainer Exercise System. As a brand new and unique training device, there’s a learning curve and it may take a little time to realize the incredible potential and versatility available to you with the T2.
To begin, the housing has no moving parts. Unlike a pulley that has a free moving wheel, The patented fixed contoured design of the housing interior acts as a static friction surface against the Resistance Strap. The inherent friction between the Resistance Strap and the T2 Housing multiples your resistive effort during a rep. The T2 relies on this friction along with your reciprocal Body Fight and the controlled constant speed of your repetitions to create scientifically defined Isokinetic Resistance.
UNDERSTANDING ISOKINETIC RESISTANCE
1. Anchor the T2 Housing with the Power Bungee "out of play" by connecting the swivel carabiner to the anchor ring as shown below. It doesn't matter whether it's a high, mid or low anchor point.
2. Hold the handles in each hand and pull tight against the anchored T2 Housing.
3. While pulling as hard as you can against the T2 with both arms, perform a simple row exercise as shown below. The left arm resists and fights against the right arm and vice versa. The T2 Resistance Housing acts as a point of static friction that multiplies the reciprocal resistive effort of one body part against the other. We call this Body Fight and it is an integral component of the T2 Iso-Trainer Exercise System.
Always use maximum effort during the rep to ensure the resistance strap is engaging with the housing.

4. ON THE FLY INTENSITY CHANGES: While maintaining MAXIMUM TENSION against the housing with the straps, control the intensity of the exercise with the speed of your reps. The slower you go during the Body Fight rep the harder it gets (you can even slow down to a full stop, creating varied angle isometrics at any time). The faster you go during the rep the easier it is.
In other words; the more friction you create with the T2 Housing during a Body Fight pull or push, the higher the intensity of the exercise and the slower the T2 allows you to move. Less friction with the T2 Housing during a Body Fight pull or push lowers the intensity and allows you to move more quickly.
