Keith Norris, even with an incredible and impressive physique before incorporating ARx Fit equipment into his workouts, is a living, breathing testament to the merits of motorized resistance training.
This stands in stark contrast to the skepticism of “the masses”, who generally do not even posses a working understanding of the equipment. “Naturally”, they attack what they do not understand (gee, where have we seen that before?).
This is tragic on their part because I am convinced, independent of protocol, motorized exercise equipment is the future of exercise, the same way cams and weight stacks were, once upon a time.
This does not mean all other equipment will disappear, or be made obsolete. Gravity dependent equipment will, and I believe currently is, simply no longer the best and highest possible for the human animal.
Selectorized machines that crudely track for changes in strength through a given range of motion were certainly a step in the right direction, but they do not account for :
- changing levels of strength via fatigue
- individual limb length
- individual muscle length
- individual tendon length
- eccentric/concentric strength differences
- *unforeseen/currently unknown interplay between all of the above*
Human anatomy is universal, and yet, we do not all work exactly the same. We are literally, different sizes. Hell, we may not all even be 100% homo sapien.
But how will we know when to end a set!?! The naysayers will say …
And this depicts how tradition-dependent most protocol is today, even within high intensity training. [So deeply ingrained, they do not even know it half the time]. Everything is designed around the limitations of available equipment. Okay fair enough … but what about when those limitations are removed?
What happens when protocol is designed first and foremost for the human animal, with the equipment in a distant second place?
What happens when Atlas is unchained?
This has never been done before to my knowledge, and it will be interesting to see what develops in this regard in the years and decades to come …
In the meantime, check out the quick video of Keith. I thought it was a simple video, a simple statement, and yet a powerful testament to what motorized equipment can do, even for someone like Keith who was already in top of the food chain shape.
