BENCHMARK. VR3 has the traditional safe and secure feeling that is achieved by moving the footplate with the legs and keeping the body stationary. The unique Cybex four-bar linkage orientation offers greater hip range of motion and hip extensor involvement by providing a descending path of motion.
BENCHMARK. Innovative designs on the Leg Extension make positioning the tibia pad intuitive, virtually effortless, and results in easily accessible and easily adjustable machines. No knobs to lock - just put legs behind the pad and push.
BENCHMARK. This Cybex patented technology adjusts the machine to the user rather than the user to the machine. Regardless of the starting position selected, the cam remains synchronized with each individual user.
BENCHMARK. VR3 uses the familiar and comfortable standing position to train calf muscles. The shoulder pads are angled to match the natural angle of the shoulder which also offers better exercise comfort.
BENCHMARK. The Cybex-pioneered optimal ergonomic design creates a more comfortable exercise. The forearm pads are positioned to encourage the user to pull into the pads to a neutral spine throughout the movement reducing the possibility of hyper-extension.
BENCHMARK. In addition to training the hip muscles, hip abduction firms the butt and is one of the gym's most popular machines for females. A reason why many facilities prefer having separate abduction and adduction machines.
BENCHMARK. As most athletes know, balanced leg strength is important both to optimize performance and to reduce injury. The hip adduction exercise trains the inner thigh and is an excellent machine to develop balanced leg strength.
BENCHMARK. The curvilinear movement encourages gluteal involvement without requiring the user to align the hip joint. It also provides knee extension which is required to eliminate hamstring cramping and allow full gluteal training.
BENCHMARK. The VR3 dependent motion offers a feeling of security to new and average users. By having both arms working together in a fixed plane, the chest press exercise feels better controlled for a comfortable and secure training movement.
BENCHMARK. The converging path of motion of VR3 Overhead Press mimics the natural way the human arms move...up and in to the center...not straight up. VR3 Overhead Press by Cybex provides a more complete range of motion with constant torque at the shoulder.
BENCHMARK. The VR3 lat pull is the traditional lat pull that most facilities want to offer their users. It offers exercise variety and appeals to those who favor a more familiar movement.
BENCHMARK. "Extra-sized" dip grips provide improved comfort. Dual grip positions accommodate user size and provide for greater variety of movements. The pull-up bar offers both bar and neutral grips for individual preference.
BENCHMARK. In the pulldown exercise, thigh pads are what keep you in the seat when using heavier weights. The adjustability of the thigh pads in VR3 means that users with varying leg lengths are accommodated so the machine works for veteran strength trainers as well as beginners.
BENCHMARK. VR3 user positioning for the Arm Curl provides an adjustable seat height which gets the shoulder in the right place for proper and safe lifting. The angled pad supports the full length of the upper arm to eliminate unwanted shoulder movement.
BENCHMARK. VR3 radial movement is a classic arm extension motion that is known to everyone who does strength training. The traditional movement allows users to focus on the triceps with less shoulder involvement than competitive dip-type triceps machines.
BENCHMARK. The lateral raise is a machine intended to train the medial deltoid which is exactly what Cybex does in the VR3. The location of the medial deltoid varies from person to person and most lateral raise machines are not designed to accommodate these differences. Cybex has designed the Lateral Raise to align the muscle with the movement so that users are training the muscle they expect to.
BENCHMARK. Two movements on one machine gives users the ability to train the rear delts and the chest muscles through the popular fly exercise.
BENCHMARK. Proper exercise to strengthen the triceps depends on bending elbows - and how far one's elbows can be bent depends on height and range of motion. VR3 has an adjustable seat to provide each user with the optimal positioning for their height and range of motion.
BENCHMARK. The VR3 Row offers a diverging path of motion that allows the arms to follow a natural rowing motion that clears the torso. The wide range of movement engages more muscles resulting in a greater exercise effect.
BENCHMARK. 22 adjustable pulley positions provide maximum versatility. Obviously, the more pulley positions, the greater specificity in directing the force needed to train very targeted muscles. This product alone enables users to do almost all and any movement pattern, upper and lower body.
Trunk and Torso
BENCHMARK. No competitor even comes close. A unique patented Cybex design isolates the abs in a way other machines do not. Because the design has taken hip flexors, arms, and shoulders out of the movement, the resulting exercise iscompletely focused on the abdominal muscles.
BENCHMARK. The Cybex Patented pelvic stabilization system utilizes adjustable foot brace which allows the user to "lock into" the hip pad, causing hip extensor engagement for optimal pelvic stabilization.
BENCHMARK. The bottom pivot design of VR3 fixes the upper body, maintaining a stable head position. This is particularly applicable for training for athletic events where the legs are "driving". The machine's low profile gives it curb appeal in the gym.
