VARIETY AND VERSATILITY
Select a pattern of motion...or...let the machine do it for you. Dual Axis Technology® is a Cybex patented strength training mechanism that provides variety and versatility for the most complete workout. Standard selectorized equipment trains muscles from a single direction that is defined only by the machine. Using our unique Dual Axis Technology® the Eagle Overhead Press offers the option to train in either the machine-defined pattern of motion...or to move in a different pattern...one defined completely by the user.
NO TWO ARMS ARE ALIKE
Cybex uses independent movement to train each according to its need. By allowing the arms to move independently of each other, Eagle delivers the ability to balance the workout when one arm is weaker or injured. Independent movement encourages symmetrical strength development and also allows for unilateral, bilateral, alternating, or high-speed reciprocal training.
ARMS MOVE THE WAY THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO
We modified the convergence angle and separated the direction of resistance for a much more progressive and comfortable loading of the shoulder. The converging path of motion of Eagle Overhead Press mimics the natural way the human arms move...up and in to the center...not straight up. The Eagle Overhead Press provides a more complete range of motion with constant torque at the shoulder. Adding Dual Axis Technology® gives an added dimension by augmenting the converging motion with the option for a user-defined motion.
SAFE NEVER FELT THIS GOOD
The Eagle Overhead Press is engineered to counter-balance the additional weight of the pressing arm assembly so that the user is lifting only the actual weight selected. Overhead press machines are typically extremely heavy and the take-off weight of the pressing arm assembly in addition to the weight selected is often more than deconditioned users can lift. The Eagle Overhead Press maximizes safety for even deconditioned users.
