TRAIN WITH SECURITY
For new and average users, the dependent movement of VR1 offers a motion that gives the feeling of security. By having both arms working together in a fixed plane, the overhead press exercise feels better controlled for a comfortable and secure training movement.
FAMILIAR PATH OF MOTION
The linear path of motion — with the overhead pivot — on Cybex VR1 provides a natural path of motion (barbell path of motion) which is the familiar look and feel that users feel comfortable with. This is in contrast to the less natural and less effective descending path of many other chest presses on the market.
The VR1 offers dual grips — the standard barbell grip as well as neutral grip which is favorable for individuals with compromised shoulders. In addition, the grips are angled to provide a neutral wrist position.
SAFE FOR DE-CONDITIONED USERS
Cybex Overhead Press is engineered to counter-balance the additional weight of the pressing arm assembly so that the user is lifting only the actual weight selected. Overhead press machines are typically extremely heavy and the take-off weight of the pressing arm assembly in addition to the weight selected is often more than deconditioned users can lift. The Cybex Overhead Press maximizes safety for even de-conditioned users.
