Strolling around Eureka Park, the place for CES incubated ideas, I stumbled upon a Smith Machine, but when I got close, I discovered it was not like traditional machines. that we often see.
This product was developed by a company called Higatrec and its difference is that there is no wheel to attach to the bars, the rest, the basic design is almost identical to traditional machine.
This Higatrec weightlifting machine is electrically operated and uses a motor to create a force equal to the weight of the weight that we want to push. Initially, it will take about 5 minutes to set up to suit the body, but later will save a lot of time.
There are many different exercises and the user can make additional variations through Other Settings.
For example, the upper chest exercise, you just need to sit in position, select the appropriate exercise type and the machine will start the “calibration” process. The bar will run down and the practitioner will put his or her hand in the most comfortable position, the machine will mark the position where the barbell will be lowered to the lowest and there will be no further pressure This method is quite smart and if we do get tired or exhausted during training, we will not be “overwhelmed” like in traditional machines.
Next is to locate the highest weightlifting position:
After “calibration” according to the human form, the machine continues to ask you to push the bar as hard as you can to know the strongest repulsion in 1 rep (a single push in a half) is how many kg, from which will begin to calculate and reallocate the appropriate weight so that the practitioner can push more reps:
And so everything was able to begin. The machine will begin to push the bar down, create pressure and the practitioner must push up, like that within 5 reps and at the end will get a few important parameters such as the number of calories just consumed in the last round, how many kilogram-force and the strongest thrust up. This practice might be a bit different from the traditional, I was embarrassed myself in the first 3 reps but then everything started to get better.
Overall this product is a very good idea, it “measure ni shoes” in accordance with the form people are practicing, save only once. The company also said that Higatrec is also in the IoT ecosystem, sync with any gym system using this machine so users can safely go to practice anywhere.
Through rapid experience, it can be seen that Higatrec offers many advantages compared to traditional machines as follows:
– No need of dumbbells so the setup space is also more tidy, located in the gym or at home.
– Alignment according to the trainee form
– Get information right after the exercise
– Synchronization should be able to access the calibration settings at any gym, provided the system is used.
