We want to ensure you get the most out of the T2. As a brand new and unique training device, there’s a learning curve and it may take a little time to realize the incredible potential and versatility available to you with the T2.
To begin, the T2 FRICTION HUB has no moving parts. Unlike a pulley with a moving wheel, it has a stationary contoured surface, similar to the knuckles on your fist. You can adjust the friction and exercise intensity by tightening or loosening the tension of the strap against the T2 FRICTION HUB using your own BODYFIGHT™ resistance. This enables you to instantly modify the intensity at any point during the exercise, with no limits on the resistance you can generate.
BODYFIGHT™ along with the controlled constant speed of your repetitions and the friction between the Resistance Strap and the T2 housing, create scientifically defined Isokinetic Resistance.

1. Anchor the T2 FRICTION HUB with the Power Bungee "out of play" by connecting the swivel carabiner to the anchor ring as shown below. It doesn't matter whether it's a high, mid or low anchor point.
2. Hold the handles in each hand and pull tight against the anchored T2 FRICTION HUB.

3. While pulling as hard as you can against the T2 FRICTION HUB with both arms, perform a simple row exercise as above. While pulling with one arm, resist or fight back against the pull with the other arm. We call this BODYFIGHT ™. One body part fighting against another. While doing this the T2 FRICTION HUB acts as static friction point against the resistance strap and multiplies your resistive effort. With as little as 10 lbs. of resistance on one side you generate 20 lbs. on the opposing side. There is no limit to the amount of resistance you can generate.
Always use maximum effort during the rep to ensure the resistance strap is engaging with the housing.
ON THE FLY INTENSITY CHANGES:
With BODYFIGHT ™ it is incredibly simple to instantly adjust the exercise intensity (how easy or hard the exercise is).
The more you resist or fight back with the opposing arm during BODYFIGHT ™ the more friction you generate with the T2 FRICTION HUB and the exercise becomes harder and more intense. It also forces you to move more slowly. You can even slow down to a full stop, creating varied angle isometric holds at any time.
The less you resist or fight back with the opposing arm during BODYFIGHT ™ the less friction you generate with the T2 FRICTION HUB and the easier the exercise becomes. It also allows you to move more quickly. You can move as light and therapeutically as you like.
In other words; the slower you go during BODYFIGHT ™ reps, the harder it gets. The faster you go, the easier it is.
The following video shows the immediate transition between high and low intensity reps.
