Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Here is the answer to your frequently-asked question:


Your question was: What’s the difference between the Wall Station and pulley machines?

Our experts said: Pulley machines utilize isotonic resistance, while the Wall Station uses elastic resistance. Both devices can increase muscular strength, but elastic resistance has been shown to have a more natural “strength curve” than pulley exercises (Page et al. 2001). In addition, the Wall Station provides multiple vectors of resistance at the same time, while pulley machines typically only provide one vector at a time.
