Rom Machine Crosstrainer Review
This seems like it would be fairly easy to test this device. This could be accomplished by doing physiologic testing directed specifically on this machine.
It's the new fashion of presenting some valid studies and then extrapolating to pure BS. So, they cite some valid studies about the better effectiveness of High Intensity Interval Training as opposed to traditional low intensity aerobic work as far as aerobic capacity and general fitness is concerned, and then they go on with this completely unjustified conclusion.
This is ridiculous. Not only the percentages of muscle usage are completely arbitrary, but the estimation of post-exercise energy consumption is outrageous. If I had here the guy who wrote this I'd punch him really hard. Sometimes I think that I could live a very happy life just by destroying such crooks.
For a realistic view of what to expect as far as EPOC is concerned see this.
I wanted to read more of what that mofo has been writing, but unfortunately my blood pressure has skyrocketed since I read the above.
This seems like it would be fairly easy to test this device. This could be accomplished by doing physiologic testing directed specifically on this machine. None of the studies quoted on the page specifically tested the machine itself, but reference HIIT in other settings (although the way they referenced the studies on their website dubiously suggests and infers that they did).
I wouldn't worry too much, in the meantime, about this catching on. The pricetag is prohibitively expensive and the only people likely to get suckered into buying one are people who have nothing better to do with their money anyway.
