POMMEL TORSO


THE POMMEL TORSO IS A REVOLUTIONARY EXERCISE TOOL DESIGNED TO OFFER THE USER A MULTITUDE OF BENEFITS.


T


he machine uses a circular movement to engage all of the core muscles, strengthening this area, as


well as elevating heart rate to provide cardiovascular benefits.


The Pommel Torso was developed


by back surgeon Dr. Yasser Nadim after watching athletes competing on the pommel horse at the Olympic Games. He observed how the rotational movement worked the muscles of the torso like no other and set about designing a machine that would allow users to engage their core in the same way, without having to master the pommel horse. Dr. Nadim


was driven by his passion to see people exercising safely and correctly, having treated many patients who had hurt their back through exercise, often due to bad technique or poor core strength. The Pommel Torso is unique; no

other machine targets all the muscles of the core and lower back. The machine is designed to be more effective than standard abdominal exercises, providing a more beneficial and well-rounded workout. While standard exercises predominantly target the rectus abdominis muscles, Pommel Torso targets all of the muscles of the core, lower and upper back in a functional manner. Research undertaken at the University of Central Lancashire showed that the Pommel Torso resulted in greater overall abdominal and back muscle activity than standard core exercises. As a result, the Pommel Torso allows users to get a more effective core workout in a shorter space of time. Using the Pommel Torso also elevates heart rate, therefore providing additional cardio benefits. The

research showed that using the machine for an average of 15 minutes, three times a week for six weeks resulted in a significant reduction in body fat. Recently, the Pommel Torso has been trialled by The Chelsea Club, an Elite London health club, located within the Stamford Bridge Stadium complex. The machine has received rave reviews from members who report a lower rate of perceived level of exertion, despite still getting a great core workout. Darren Garrett, the club’s fitness manager, said: ‘This could make a real impact when it hits the market. It gives members an effective way to condition their core safe in the knowledge that they are performing the exercise correctly and not putting their back at risk. Installation is so easy it could slot neatly into nearly any gym set up.’
