The VersaClimber has the option for Contra-Lateral Movement Pattern (also known as alternate reciprocal). This pattern replicates our natural "running motion" and can be applied to a VersaClimber. Contra-Lateral is used when we crawl, walk or run. It is otherwise known as our natural GAIT pattern. Contra-Lateral Movement Pattern provides a unique alternative to the "standard" climbing motion VersaClimber provides. The Contra-Lateral Movement motion is produced when the arm and leg approach each other on one side of body while the opposite arm and leg separate on the other side. It has been demonstrated this natural pattern will more safely and effectively strengthen the para-spinal musculature.
VersaClimber models that come included with "Contra-Lateral Movement Pattern" are: H, HP, SM and SMA. It can be added to LX for additional amount / optional upgrade indicated by "CC" for the LX series.
VersaClimber "Contra-Lateral Movement Pattern" replicates crawling. Crawling is a developmental movement pattern that ties everything about you together. Through this movement pattern, cross crawl neural connections and pathways are established in the brain that allow the brain to become more efficient at communication between left and right hemispheres.
If you are an athlete who runs, Contra-Lateral Movement Pattern would allow you to not compromise the biomechanical integrity of your running movement pattern. (Just think of all sports that the athlete runs).
"If I could only have one piece of equipment to train with for the rest of my life," James says to ESPN, "the Versaclimber would be it." "We've been doing it for a long, long time," says Mike Mancias, James' personal trainer. "And the reason we do it is to conserve. No pounding on the joints. No wear on his back, his knees, his ankles, all that, his hips. It's just all non-weight-bearing cardio. It was a godsend, really. And I have to, we need to thank our ex-strength coach Stan Kellers, who kind of guided us to start using that. And Stan Kellers is a legend for it."
