If you’ve never pressed with a traditional bar and plates, here’s the scenario. Load the plates, taking care not to overload one side. Don’t drop a plate on your foot. Look for somebody to spot for you. Add a plate or two, subtract a plate or two. Don’t let the bar get away from you.
Here’s how easy it is with the Vectra 1650. All you need to do to transform the machine from fixed mode to “free-weight” mode is pull the conveniently located selector knob. This releases the fore-and-aft restrictions on the weight stack, requiring you to con-trol and balance the weight throughout the pressing action, approxi-mating the sensation and benefits of free-weight pressing.
This act of controlling the vertical path during the lift is what separates the 1650 system from the so-called “user-defined” machines, with merely a free-floating press arm. Just as with a free-weight bar, the more you lift vertically with the 1650, the more you must balance. And the more balance required, the more the secondary, supportive muscles must be called into action.
To return to the fixed mode, simply push in the selector knob. This amazing fea-ture must be experienced to be fully understood and appreciated.
