The X-Force Body Program

An Innovative New Method For Negative Training

X- Force is the most meaningful advance in strength training in the last 30 years. A patented "tilting" weight stack allows for a 40% heavier resistance on the "negative" (lowering) part of the exercise. This heavier negative resistance allows for a greater intensity of effort through a higher quality of resistance. Great strength gains in less time! Results that previously required several workouts a week can now be stimulated in 1-2 workouts a week. By doing the lowering (or negative) part of a lift slowly, you activate can key hormones in your body that enhance fat burn.

Accentuate the Negative.

Research clearly supports the concept that negative (eccentric) training significantly improves muscular size and strength. And that even better results can be achieved by combining this with positive (concentric) training.

Eccentric training is also known as ‘negative’ training simply because it is the opposite of traditional concentric training, which has always been labelled ‘positive’. In the positive training phase the weight is raised which means that the muscle shortens as it works. In the negative phase the opposite happens: the weight is resisted as it is lowered, which means that the muscle lengthens as it works. 

With this program, you will:

  • Elevate your fat-burning metabolism during and after hours after your workout.
  • Stimulate the production of interleukin 6 and other chemical messengers that help to breakdown fat storage in fat cells.
  • Boost bone density and even grow new bone cells to protect against osteoporosis.
  • Reverse age-related muscle loss and build strength for life.
  • Lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, reduce systems of anxiety and depression and improve sleep.
  • Improve blood sugar levels, reducing risk of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.
  • Transform your body with the most effective and technologically advanced strength-training system available.
