Description
The Power System is used during exercise resistance training. The fixed barbell can be moved explosively, and then magnetic brakes control the decent of the bar. This way, the barbell can be thrown, pushed, or lifted as explosively as needed, with no fear of the bar crashing down. All force production and strength curves are monitored by a computer program and feed back is instantaneous.
