Designed and independently tested for optimal biomechanics, the Bio-Arc Leg Press (BA-709) is part of TuffStuff’s most innovative commercial strength series. After four decades at the helm of TuffStuff’s Research & Development, Ken Carter claims the Bio-Arc Leg Press as one of his all-time favorite creations.
With each repetition, the user’s entire body moves along a linear arc trajectory to optimize muscle recruitment. As a result, the Bio-Arc Leg Press provides a smooth and comfortable pressing motion. The large foot pad allows users to position their feet in a wider stance to increase adductor recruitment when desired. The Bio-Arc Leg Press includes a 400 lbs. weight stack; however, the weight lifted is the approximate combined user’s weight and weight selected (see Weight Guide label).Owner's Manual
TUFFSTUFF BIO-ARC RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
TuffStuff is proud to introduce the Bio-Arc strength series, the first resistance machines to incorporate multi-planar movement of each machine’s seat, along a linear arc trajectory. The seat movement allows the user to move along the arc path in conjunction with the machine, helping to maintain more optimal muscle length and improving the force of contraction and training stimulus.
Three years in the making, from concepts and engineering prototypes, to testing and countless refinements. Each Bio-Arc machine was tested by an independent exercise consulting company. Pilot research studies combining joint positioning – using goniometry testing, along with muscle recruitment and activity measurements – through electromyographic (EMG) testing. Each machine was tested to determine the optimal dimensions for final production. Every detail was measured, and design modifications were executed to exact specifications and re-tested. The end result is our patented Bio-Arc Technology that allows full body linear arc trajectory motion during exercise. Learn more >
