I've purchased one of these now - I was undecided on which KG range to go for and went for 40kg After reading some reviews - I wanted to try a lighter kg one as I have no intention of beating my joints up trying to tackle a question of ego.
I'm finding it interesting but I suspect it maybe very hard on the joints , its certainly adding a unique resistance arc.
Exercise selection is something I'm finding hard to pin down in terms of what does what so roll with me here and add in where you like:-
Hands in front of chest with an overhand grip bending the bar ends towards the ground to create a " n " shape.
Muscles suggested:- Chest ( Inner , Lower ) , Lats , Serratus(?)
Hands in front of Chest with an Underhand grip bending the bar toward the ceiling to create a " u " shape.
Muscles Suggested:- Chest ( Upper Clavical head , Inner) , Deltoids ( More Lateral head ?) , Traps
Bar behind the head , Hands facing forward/up , bending the bar so the handles start behind the head but at full ROM hands are to front of head near Temple. More a 'Pec Deck' type movement.
Thoughts on the above or others?
Muscles Used: Chest ( Inner Pectoral ) , Deltoids ( Anterior )
Elmatador - Interested in your thoughts and experience with this - I see the heavy weight twister as potentially a decent mas builder - something along the lines of Dips for the upper body.
