How to achieve eccentric overload:
(copied from our Tips and Tricks page, for more details visit the Tips and Tricks).
Option 1 without Eccentric Overload Aid: Athletes pulls with constant force for a long period of time when he stretches his legs in the concentric phase to accelerate the flywheel and avoid any concentric force peaks. When the athletes enters the eccentric phase when he goes down into squat position, the athlete decelerates the flywheel in a short period of time leading to high eccentric peak forces and eccentric overload.
Option 2 with Eccentric Overload Aid: : Athlete pulls in the concentric phase with arms and legs with the help of our Eccentric Overload Aid (can be bought in the online shop as accessory) to accelerate the flywheel. When the athletes enters the eccentric phase when he goes down into squat position, the athlete decelerates the flywheel only with his legs or just with minimal support from his arms. Long and short period timing is here not that important, meaning with the Eccentric Overload Aid you have a longer eccentric phase duration and more control about the actual eccentric load you can achieve.
