LIVE! The Future of Exercise is NOW!

LIVE! The Future of Exercise is NOW!

14 comments written by Joshua Trentine

We have just finalized all of the details for our upcoming live 2-day event The Future of Exercise is NOW! on October 6-7, 2012 here in Cleveland, Ohio and I wanted you to be the first to get all of the details.

We are very excited to bring the entire RenEx Team together along with special guest Keynote speaker Dr. Doug McGuff.

Trust me, you will NOT want to miss out on this.



P.S. If you are serious about strength training and taking your acumen and physique to the next level then this is one weekend you will not want to miss.

P.P.S. Due to the intimate and hands on nature of this event we can only allow 50 people to attend so don’t delay because this is guaranteed to sell out!

I’m looking forward to October. I have been making some good disctinctions lately… some I had been moving towards slowly, and then kind of got forced into others. When I was last in Ohio and I got to do a workout with Josh, I realized that I was moving too slowly, and I had a ways to go to “learn to inroad properly”. Since then, I had a mishap with a trap bar, where I put my back out real good, but luckily no permanent disc damage. I’m ok now, but went back to my workout with 50% of previous weights and using a special ipad app, am timing “perfect reps” (or they don’t count) of exactly 10 seconds up and 10 seconds down. My first shock is that even without going to failure, I felt significant inroad. I have been gradually increasing and getting 10 reps on all exercises but decline press when I failed at 9, (others were short of failure, but still incredible burn) I’ve done this with another 3 people that I train, albeit only cutting their weights by about 20% but being stricter and they have all reported feeling “this changes everything”. Continuous uninterrupted tension not allowing the muscle to recover at all through on-offing or “wiggles” or moving slowly through easy parts of rep or faster through hard parts of rep creates a much higher quality of rep. I feel like I’m moving beyond just an intellectual appreciation of the “real objective”. Just though I’d share.

Above should have read: have been gradually increasing weight but only reached failure on decline bench, as stopping other exercises at 10 reps short of failure but still feeling significant inroad. By the way all htese done on Nautilus Next Generation (pullover, torso arm, decline press, low back and leg press)

Exercise … “back to the future” you guys mean?

Great job of confusing the uninformed … again

Sorry you are having trouble following.

As was mentioned in a thread a while back, here is an interesting competitor with their own equipment: http://www.biodensity.com

Isometric, HIT, no dumping, force gauge, monitor feedback. Biggest difference in Renex and them is the traditional short set times for the protocol. Equipment is basically the big 5 compounds in mid range position. Worth checking out as the target audience is similar. Would be interested in feedback from the team.


avatar Joshua Trentine August 11, 2012 at 1:36 am

We acknowledge that as isometrics have been practiced in innumerable forms since time immemorial, there are also competing equipment manufacturers presenting their own machines and protocols. The RenEx approach is distinct by virtue of philosophy, protocol, manufacturing, technology, and biomechanics. The duration and intensity of muscular contraction is a key characteristic of TSC.


avatar Dean Curtis August 11, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Thanks for responding Josh. Since reading about TSC in TROE and the recent big thread, I have now had 3 WOWs with it, great stuff on conventional equipment.

As a software guy, I am curious of the iMachines’ data storage, how it interacts with the server, what about the server, how easy is it for a studio to maintain, reboot, does it “recognize” a specific user, etc. Wish I could be there in Oct, will be a blast I am sure.

I’ve tried “biodensity”, (they had a $10 per session summer deal, & it’s in my neighborhood, so why not? ). My take thus far: 1/Positioning is imprecise, prone to random changes that greatly affect readouts. 2/5 second protocol’s way too short. 3/Timer kicks in when minimum effort#’s reached. Minimum #’s raised as your average effort increases: Thus, the higher your average, the more real work time you get, but the work -up to- minimum isn’t registered. 4/A/The leg press & deadlift #s correlate reasonably with my previous personal data. B/Pulldown’s a unique, complex, & strange movement, incorporating spinal flexion & leg raise: Improvement’s all about figuring it out, not added strength. C/Bench press readout is out of wack: I reached 900 lbs in a few weeks. ( I have an iso machine of my own, & get nowhere near a 900 BP, but the 2400 LP’s in agreement.)


avatar mark August 12, 2012 at 5:20 pm

5/Trainers will change positioning if progress isn’t forthcoming in expected fashion, destroying any change of accurate record-keeping.


avatar mark August 12, 2012 at 5:21 pm

-chance- of accuracy


avatar Dean Curtis August 12, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Thanks Mark. I have never seen the units in person, but can only imagine the inaccuracies, and the protocol making the whole experience worse. As mentioned, being in the software industry I must constantly monitor what my competitors are doing. Equipment manufacturers like Renex should do the same, if nothing else to be able to plan marketing strategy. Most all of us here know just how much better the iMachines are, need to get the word out to others 😉

avatar David Lee August 13, 2012 at 4:11 pm

I really wish I could attend this! Unfortunately I already have a physio course to take that month. Can’t afford the time off. But if I had known sooner I wouldlhave loved to have used this as an education credit.

I thinking of buying the book. Is there any left?



avatar Joshua Trentine August 13, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Hi Dave,

We have printed another batch of books.
