A standing plank protocol using the Cybex Bravo to aid in a post-therapy shoulder strengthening program

A subject increased maximum abdominal plank time 155% following a five week, post-therapy shoulder strength training program including the Cybex Bravo to perform a standing plank.  The standing plank elicits similar muscle activation compared to a traditional plank, without the requirement of having to support all of one’s body weight.

The effects of a Cybex Arc Trainer power and endurance training program on perceived knee pain and first-time marathon performance

A subject was able to reduce knee pain during the last five weeks of a marathon training program by replacing one running day with an Arc Trainer workout.  The Arc Trainer may be a good option to maintain cardiovascular fitness during periods of reduced running due to injury.

Increased four mile fitness time following an eight week Arc Trainer based program

An eight week training program involving the Cybex Arc Trainer and light strength training resulted in increased overall running fitness, despite no running during this time.  In addition, the subject reported less pain in the Achilles tendon, suggesting that the Arc Trainer provided a valuable alternative to running while recovering from a lower extremity injury.  The Arc Trainer can potentially be a valuable addition to any training regimen, especially those whose training is limited due to injury.
