Eccentric Training and the Oxefit

Eccentric overload training on the Oxefit, also known as negative training, is a type of resistance training that focuses on the eccentric, or lowering, phase of a movement. This type of training can be effective for both weight loss and toning.

During eccentric training, the muscles are under tension while they are lengthening, which can lead to greater muscle damage and soreness than traditional training methods. This muscle damage stimulates the muscles to grow back stronger and can lead to increased muscle mass and strength.

In terms of weight loss, eccentric training can be effective because it can increase the number of calories burned during a workout. This is because the muscles are working harder during the eccentric phase of a movement, which can lead to an increased heart rate and a higher calorie burn. Additionally, eccentric training can also increase metabolism, which can help with weight loss.

In terms of toning, eccentric training can be effective because it can help to build lean muscle mass. This can lead to a more toned and defined appearance, as well as increased strength.

Overall, eccentric overload training can be a useful addition to a weight loss or toning program. It is important to talk to a doctor or fitness professional before starting any new exercise program, especially one that involves intense eccentric training.
