Vertical Knee Raise - VKR Info
For a sculpted and ripped stomach you need the Body-Solid Vertical Knee Raise (VKR). With the Body-Solid VKR you have the versatility to not only work the mid section of your stomach but also the obliiques or love handles in a fashion no other machine can perform. By hanging on the comfortable arm cushions you can twist your legs and hit the obliques and get immediate response. Your stomach will be the envy of friends and family after only a few workouts on the Body-Solid VKR.
The Body-Solid VKR doesn’t stop with your results there, you can also be stronger than most from utilizing good form while doing dips on the Body-Solid Vertical Knee Raise dip handles. The VKR is sturdy and the handles are cushioned for a better grip. Your triceps will know you are training them to grow stronger after the first workout. For most of your arm pulling exercises such as golf, baseball, tennis, and swimming, ect.. you will have increased strength and endurance from exercising your tricpes on the Body-Solid VKR dip handles. Your chest will also be responsive to this new and enhanced movement.
I enjoy helping my back be as strong as it should so my favorite part of the Body-Solid Vertical Knee Raise is the wide grip handles which allow me to perform many back exercises such as free standing chin ups with overhand grip and ten same movement with underhand grip which also helps my biceps become stronger. When I want to diversify the Body-Solid VKR I also free hang from the wide chin up bar and perform hanging knee raise to add to my abdominal training on the Body-Solid VKR.
You won’t find a better single piece of fitness equipment to work your entire body, economical, have a small physical foot print, and last you for years to come.
Vertical Knee Raise Chin Dip Combo
Since this machine has many result oriented exercise capabilities I am going to break the exercises and results into segments.
Core, midsection, or abdominal area;
Since the vertical knee raise I am most familiar with is the Body-Solid Vertical knee raise chin dip combo, this is the one I am going to discuss.
We all know well the challenge of strength training and as important toning, and reducing, the core area. No matter which is your current desired result the Body-Solid vertical knee raise when utilized properly and consistently will increase your benefits. I have trained on the vertical knee raise which is short for vertical knee raise for more than 25 years. Every ones of the VKR’s I have owned have all been the vertical knee raise chin dip combo’s like the unit from Body-Solid. For the most part I have just called them VKR’s, and will do so here for simplicity. Ironically the VKR is the portion of this Body-Solid machine we are going to focus on for the Core results we all want and need. Yes need, so that we won’t strain our backs and legs, and pretty much every other portion of our body. Because the Core is essentially the hub of the rest of our body we need to be more aware of the importance of doing what we can to insure the Core stays strong, and in turn the rest of our body will be stronger.
The first exercise I enjoy on the Body-Solid VKR is the hanging knee raise, this exercise is performed from the vertical position with your back against the upright back pad and your forearms to elbows set on the elbow pads located just below shoulder level in the center of the VKR. Fortunately on the Body-Solid VKR there are push up bars near the floor for people of my height to step up on to get set in the elbow pads before doing the bent knee raise exercise. The push up bars are a benefit at the end of the bent knee raise exercise because often you are fatigued and don’t want to just drop from this height.
After you have gotten set up to perform the exercise position your legs so that they are not hanging directly under you but angled away from the center of the machine a bit. This leg position will insure your back is pressed against the back of the VKR and not only feel more comfortable but allow correct posturing for enhanced breathing during movement. Once legs are positioned away from body a bit begin movement by slowly lifting your knees toward your chest. Once you have raised your knees as high as you can without allowing your back to curl away from pad you stop, then slowly allow your knees to return to starting position which is legs straight below you but slightly away from midline of body to insure constant resistance to core area. This constant resistance will help you achieve the results you want which is slimmer, stronger, and tighter, core area.
In the beginning you want to perform as many repetitions as you can properly, write down this amount including the time it took you to complete the exercises. Next time you approach the Body-Solid VKR, you need to have an objective to do better. Better can be attained one of two ways, either do more vertical knee raises in the same amount of time, or do more repetitions with longer duration. Each time you return to the VKR utilize the results that you have gained and be stronger, perform better results than before. Always track your progress and smile knowing these wonderful results are the work of yours alone and therefore so are the benefits. Others will tell you they want what you have, and that you are so lucky to have been born with good genetics. No need to tell them you earned the great core you have, and they can with effort have the same benefits. They will say they have tried and didn’t see results. Inform them exactly what you experienced and perhaps you will have some healthy converts. I can tell you from experience the converts will be few, seems many want the fruits but not many want to plow. Just smile, let them know you will help if they like and walk strong. Fortunately you will have some that want you to show them what you do and then you will be able to reflect on what you experienced and help another. This is an added benefit of an in shape physique, being able to help others be healthier.
Your target sets of vertical knee raises should be comfortable for you but yet challenging. For starters perhaps the second week of doing the vertical knee raise, you should strive for a total of 50 per workout. This could be attained by doing a warm up set of 10 reps, then second set of 15 reps, third set of 15 reps and final set of 10 reps. You could hold this total of fifty reps for one set then next time increase by a minimum of one rep. By the second month you should be doing a total of fifty eight reps for the fifth week workout which is doing the vertical knee raise exercise a minimum of twice a week. You of course will achieve quicker benefits if performed three times a week but I wouldn’t recommend much more than that to allow for proper recovery and strength.
You may ask how many reps I do. Because of a diversified core workout which is an essential part of every one of my training sessions I do a minimum of one hundred reps each workout. I don’t however replicate exercises any two consecutive work out sessions.
There are many other exercises I do on the Body-Solid vertical knee raise and I will share these another time. Know the vertical knee raise exercise is only one element of having a strong core. Rest, proper nutrition, and balance of your entire walk are all components which need care, and will assist in helping you achieve success.
