Excy XCR 300

Overhead Shoulder Upper Body Ergometer Using a Weight Rack

Setup: Place the Excy XCR 300 on a rack with the pedal axis 1 to 2 inches above the shoulder for the overhead shoulder upper body ergometer using a weight rack. Stand tall, focus on good posture, keep chin up, back straight, shoulders back, and torso strong. Add calf raises, jumping jacks, speed skates, and one-legged balance exercises for added complexity. Add a Bosu Ball for advanced balance work. Do not hyper-extend elbow by stepping too far away or reaching too high. Work directly with physical therapist or doctor if you have a history of shoulder pain or injury. Move the XCR 300 up or down the rack to change muscle groups. Cranking motions can be done forwards, backwards, in small back and forth rotations, as well as isometrically.
