“Thanks to AI, Biostrength ensures up to 30% better results in the same amount of time, when compared to traditional training”

Strength training has made a huge comeback in recent years featuring in the lives of many, regardless of ability, age or gender.

The rise in strength training among females has been a refreshing and welcome addition to strength training areas on the gym floor which have historically been dominated by male powerlifters and body building enthusiasts.

The popularity of strength training has naturally been linked to aesthetics, muscle definition and appearance, however, there’s now greater awareness and understanding of the many significant benefits gained by including strength training in exercise routines. It can boost bone density, muscle endurance and texture, regulate metabolism and improve general posture. Ligaments, tendons and joints also benefit, as do the health of the cardiovascular and nervous systems.

In addition to balancing body composition, strength training also enhances sports performance and can support prehab and rehab.

However, common mistakes can be made when strength training, which is where Technogym Biostrength comes in.

Remove guesswork with aerospace tech
Thanks to its Artificial Intelligence, Biostrength adapts and guides users every step of the way, ensuring up to 30 per cent better results in the same amount of time, when compared to traditional training.

Biostrength enables users to train with the correct workload, range of motion, posture and speed of execution while even indicating the number of sets and repetitions, as well as optimal recovery times.

The patented Biodrive system which sits at the heart of the Biostrength range, uses aerospace technology, offering six different types of resistance and improving the effectiveness of exercise execution in line with the goals users want to achieve.

Biostrength offers four programmes which can be chosen to enable the user to achieve specific goals – developing muscle mass, boosting power, increasing strength and toning the body.

Biodrive recognises when users are beginning to fatigue and its ‘spotter function’ automatically kicks in to reduce the load, enabling users to complete the set, boosting motivation and encouragement to continuously improve.

Free to get on and go
In addition to delivering a personalised training experience, Biostrength users can jump right into their workout with Free Training mode. They simply adjust the seat, select the weight, and start training and Biostrength will measure their range of motion and provide real-time feedback.

Biostrength training: A programme for everyone
Biostrength has been designed to work with all types of muscular strength:

• Maximal force
The maximum amount of strength people are able to express with a single repetition. Corresponds to the highest weight we’re able to lift by performing a single movement.

• Explosive force
The ability to express a peak force in the shortest amount of time, for example in a sprint or a jump. This demonstrates the body’s neuromuscular ability to adapt quickly to a stimulus.

• Strength endurance
This represents our body’s ability to withstand a prolonged workload and resistance – for example, during sports performance – that are not short in duration. Examples include cycling and rowing.

Biostrength: A training experience like no other

• Correct Posture
Following initial setup, Bioposture automatically customises the seat and range of motion.

• Optimal workload
Bioload determines the optimal workload for each person and progresses over time.

• Help for the hardest reps
Biodrive recognises when fatigue sets in and automatically reduces the resistance.

• Enhanced motivation and engagement
With Biofeedback, users get precise, real-time guidance on range of motion and tempo.

• Advanced workout parameters
From Pyramid training to drop sets, Biostrengh has six additional training options for advanced users.
