The new Converging CrossRamp® takes a proven technology to the next level. Precor conducted three independent research studies with a public university in Washington state to evaluate and validate the new product design. At its simplest, the new ramp design better mimics a person’s natural converging path of motion as they walk and run. Muscle activation patterns also change depending on the training angle. On top of all this, the EFX is designed to fit and work for anyone, no matter what their fitness level.
The ultimate Precor elliptical, the Experience™ Series 800 Line features our patented converging CrossRamp® technology that follows your natural stride. Just imagine, when you walk, your feet converge toward the midline of your body, instead of staying in line with your hips. This converging motion is replicated in our 800 Line ellipticals and are featured in fitness centers, universities, and hotels across the world. Similar to our 200, 400, and 600 Lines of home and commercial ellipticals, you can isolate or cross train specific lower body muscle groups simply by adjusting the angle of the ramp, making it easy to target different muscle groups, to encourage training variance, and propel results.
How can the Converging CrossRamp® work for you?
- For max glute impact, train in the forward direction with ramp angle between 13-20.
- Train in the reverse direction at high and low CrossRamp levels to target your quadriceps.
- Optimize calf engagement by training forward between CrossRamp level 12-15.
- Train backwards at any resistance level and angle and your heart rate will likely elevate – it’s a less familiar movement!
- At Crossramp level 20, knee flexion is similar to treadmill running.
- When you train forward you actively push down the ramp; when you train backward you actively push up.
- When training at a steady cadence, as CrossRamp level increases, so does heart rate and calorie consumption. Avoid slowing down to compensate for the higher ramp angles. Use the lower CrossRamp levels for recovery periods.
- The low impact, fluid movement contributes to exercisers’ observing a lower Rate of Perceived Exertion, making the workout more enjoyable despite the training challenge.
