The War Machine® - Rotational Bodyweight Training™ system was originally designed for the US Military "hence the name" to give soldiers the most reliable and versatile fitness system available whether indoors or out.
The War Machine is the only Rotational Bodyweight Trainer in the world that utilizes a lockable pulley system. Insert the magnetic pin to lock the pulley in place when more stable movements are needed. PULL THE PIN™ for rotational movement to really stimulate the core and improve balance. The detachable handles and pulley system work together to allow other forms of resistance to be used such as kettlebells and resistance bands. For pull-ups and knee raises the handle carabiners clip right into the top of the pulley housing. The War Machine attaches to most any safe anchor point between 7’ and 11’ high. And when you’re ready to pack it up, the complete system fits into a small carry bag and weighs a little over 2kgs. Made In The USA, this product is heavy-duty and built to withstand up to approximately 450kgs.
Most gym routines contain plenty of pulling and pushing moves – the basic movements of everyday human life – that will build a lean physique and prepare you for a huge variety of real-life tasks. But your gains could be even greater if you add rotational movements. The trunk muscles provide the link between power generated from the hips and the shoulders. They’re the key to transmitting that force in an efficient manner, so a weak core will hold you back. People have traditionally found it tricky to train rotational moves – which is where the War Machine comes into action. This workout system is now making its way into mainstream gym chains. The key to the system is its nifty ‘Pull The Pin’ option. When the pin’s in, it works just like a traditional suspension trainer. When the pin comes out, the War Machine basically turns into a pulley, adding an element of instability that makes any move you do exponentially tougher. Learning to control rotation and then to use it also helps with everyday movement from w alking to running, sprinting and throwing. Using the War Machine also reduces the likelihood of injury around these joints due to that increased control of movement and reduced stress to the joint.
