At this point, it is good to specify what the digital counter is and what its function is. The digital counter is a small device installed on the polycarbonate sphere that allows you to calculate the number of revolutions that have been reached using the Powerball.
If you have to perform a specific job (for example a functional recovery) while maintaining a certain resistance, the digital counter is practically essential!
If, on the other hand, the Powerball is used for the purpose of increasing resistance and strength, a version without a digital counter can easily be used. You will still have excellent results.
The effectiveness of the Powerball is due to its particularities on a technical level. Its characteristics allow you to use the physical principles of movement to obtain a truly effective action on the muscles.
The outer sphere, as already mentioned, is made of polycarbonate, a very resistant plastic. The internal gyroscope is usually made of ABS, a thermoplastic polymer but also of steel.
This innovative gymnastic instrument the size of a tennis ball has a weight that does not reach 1 kg.
In relation to the rotations produced, resistance will be generated which translates into kg and which in some models can reach 27 kg.
- Number of laps
The number of laps ranges from 15,000 to 18,000.
Resistance based on the rotations produced by the sphere, resistance will be generated which is expressed in kg which can reach up to 27 kg in some models.
Vibrations are measured in Hertz and range from 250Hz to 280Hz.
- Activation of the gyroscope
The movement of the gyroscope can be started mechanically, with a spring that gives the initial thrust, or through the use of a cord.
