- X Stops
The base of SMx3 is capable of a rocking motion side to side. The X stops were created to give the user control over how much motion is allowed. These stops (right and left) were designed to accomplish a few things. One of our goals was to create a product that can be locked out completely, so players can safely advance at their own pace, starting with stops locked down on setting 1. Setting 2 will require the user to engage their core, with stability challenged. Setting 3, there will be a large amount of motion. Additionally, different sports have different weight shifts. Baseball and Tennis the player is rotating the bat and racket across the body whereas in Golf and Hockey the body is brought forward in more of a pendulum shift.
SMx3 plates were created with 3 settings, narrow, intermediate, and wide to accommodate exact stance and hip width. If you are a baseball player, you may choose to set the plates at their widest setting for our ‘’Hitter’’ workout. A golfer working on perfecting that chip shot, you can set plates for that specific shot. Experience strength and conditioning work as well targeting any muscle group with the many variations of SMx3 functional training.
We are very proud of the SMx3 rotating pads. No other product in the market offers this capability. Being able to lock or unlock, change direction left or right, either pad will allow you to rotate in order to create a great variety of strength exercises hitting muscles from all sides. You can stand on it, or for the over the shoulder athlete place hands and elbows for push up and plank work. Hip rotation, external shoulder rotations combined with core & oblique work will transform your game allowing you to play stronger.
- What does the “3” stand for?
Stability + Rotation = Power. The SMx3 Equation.
- How SMx3 is different than other training tools?
SMx3 is the first device on the market that develops core strength and dynamic hip rotation simultaneously. Created with the kinetic chain concept in mind, SMx3 primarily strengthens the body’s core and enhances performance with it’s patented action. Utilizing 3 adjustable settings of rotating pads, plates and stops, the SMx3 can be set for any targeted exercise or sport movement to create a dynamic transfer of energy.
