Pro Athletes Train for Power
The higher power capacity of the Cybex Bikes and Arc Trainer, coupled with the ease
of achieving that power, produces functional gains that are unattainable on ellipticals
or even on treadmills. To learn about Power Training,
The Cybex Bike
is one of the most popular training tools for NHL athletes. In fact, there is a
Cybex bike in every single NHL arena in the United States. The Cybex Bikes are the
only bikes that offer up to 900 watts of resistance, which is outstanding on its
own, but Cybex also gives you options of managing how you apply power to the bike.
Power on the bike varies with resistance and speed. In bike mode, the program responds
as if you were riding outdoors. The faster you pedal, the harder it gets. Pedal
faster still, and it gets really hard. The Constant Power mode works a little differently.
Slow down and resistance increases; speed up, and resistance declines. This mode
of use is a huge value for instructors, trainers and hockey players alike to control
minimum or maximum power output, regardless of the cadence used.
