Distributors of ThoraxTrainer™
With ThoraxTrainer™ you train your core, leg muscles and even the muscles under your feet. This will give you an enhanced “bounce” in every stride because your core absorbs the impact from the ground. ThoraxTrainer™ gives you increased speed, better running technique over time and reduced risk of injuries.
TRIATHLETE SPRINT RESEARCH
Six triathletes participated in a training project over a 12 weeks training program with 3 x ThoraxTrainer HIT intervals per week, and reduced traditional training in the three disciplines. They were tested before and after in 1200 m. swim- ming, 20 km cycling and 3000 m running.
The illustration below shows improvements in seconds for the three respective disciplines and in total.
All six triathletes improved in the 3 disciplines, and they all achieved Personal best times in the IRONMAN Copenhagen. 2013.
IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE IN ALL THREE DISCIPLINES
AT THE SAME TIME!
ThoraxTrainer™ is designed so that for each pole stroke you must push with your legs with the same power as you do with your arms and upper body. It provides a highly efficient endurance strength training of the thighs, buttocks and hamstings resulting in increased power on the pedals.
“After 14 days of training with the ThoraxTrainer™ three times a week for 15-40 minutes I swam under 26 sec. on 50 meter free for the first time in 10 years! I feel positive effects when running and cycling, and I look even more fit!”
Martin Jensen, Pro triathlete,
World championship Silver medalist long distance 2015, 3 x world champion medalist long distance
“With the ThoraxTrainer™ I want to expand my training spectrum. With the ThoraxTrainer and the knowhow from the ThoraxTrainer™ team, I want to set new goals, especially when it comes to strengthening my core muscles”.
Andreas Raelert, world record holder
long distance triathlon with 7:41:33.
ThoraxTrainer™ imitates the movements of swimming, but you get far more resistance than in the water. You can increase your core stability, strength and endurance faster with ThoraxTrainer™. This leads to more power in your stroke and a better position in the water.
40% LESS TRAINING AND 13% IMPROVEMENT
40% less training resulted in a 1.5-hour improvement in IronMan Copenhagen.
To investigate the effect of ThoraxTrainer for triathletes, five experienced IronMan participants took part in a training program from January until Ironman Copenhagen in August. They were not allowed to swim from January to June, and cycling and running was significantly reduced compared to what they had previously done.
In total the training volume was reduced by 40% and they improved an average of 1.5 hours (13%) on the Ironman distance compared to previous PR (From 11:20 h on average down to 9:50 h)
Swimming: 1 x per week in June, July, August.
Cycling: 3 times a week. No sessions longer than 60 km, only 1 x 160 km in June and July
Running: 3-4 x weekly 3 – 15 km
ThoraxTrainer: 3 x HIT intervals per week of 12-20 minutes.
THEIR DISCIPLINE TIMES:
Swimming: 1:04 to 1:22 Swimming: 1:04 to 1:10
Cycling: 5:37 to 6:05 Cycling: 4:51 to 5:20
Running: 3:53 to 4:17 Running: 3:26 to 3:39
Average Finish: 11:20 Average Finish: 9:50
SOME OF THE BEST TRIATHLETES IN THE WORLD USE ThoraxTrainer™
“After using ThoraxTrainer™ for one month, I can feel an improvement in both running and swimming. I use the ThoraxTrainer™ in addition to my daily training 2-3 times a week. It has definitely strengthened my core and I have gained more stability in running, and therefore I run more economical. It’s a great exercise which is very gentle to the body”
