The Split Core Dynamax has a German made stainless steel rotor and can produce up to 220 lbs of smooth low impact resistance. The Dynamax uses gyroscopic technology and the motion of inertia that defines its resistance. This one product will tone and strengthen your core muscles and upper body in just minutes a day. You won’t want to put it down! It’s the “hard core”, patented, hand-held fitness machine that’s been missing from your workout program. The Dynamax was originally designed for the US Military and Special Forces, and now it is available to you! Do away with those costly monthly gym member ships and expensive bulky home gym equipment, and get it all with the Dynamax Core Trainer.
Let me tell you about this little machine! This thing is going to make me a monster! I had a slap repair of my right shoulder 2 years ago and my shoulder has never been the same! It took over a 1.5 years for it to stop aching daily. Now; it’s still not where it was before the injury, because the little stabilizer muscles have not recovered. With weightlifting movements are slow and controlled and squeezing the muscle. With this you rotate as fast as you can.
I watched the video and some of the moves are overhead; normally with arms extended straight in front my shoulders are burning. Overhead they have gone from burning to on fire!!
This machine is going to rebuild my shoulder and then some! It’s going to strengthen my joint which will allow me to lift more weight and put my size back on!
My hands and forearms are on fire! With the powerball
My rear delts which is what I need to rehab!!! Is on fire with the Dynamax!
I was standing and my front delts were on fire and then I did it lying on my back in bed and that’s what burned my rear delts!

I used the Dynamax Split Core today and I was demonstrating it to a bunch of guys on base and getting them to try it. I got a bunch of split reviews. A couple were having trouble with the motion, once they learned it, they said it was cool and it burned. They others said the motion looked gay especially the golfing club motion. Lol they also made a comment of the powerballs check that review for their response.
Tomorrow I should be filming a few videos!

The videos are being edited and will soon be posted on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
I love this machine I have been doing 2-3 sets of a couple minutes a day and burning my shoulder out! As well as my arms. The only drawback I see is the price tag! The spilt core unit has a hefty $500 price tag. I don’t see the average consumer spending that. However; I urge rehab centers (physical therapists) to purchase at least one of these for your facilities! This will make excellent strides in labrum and rotator cuff recovery.
The standard unit is still $299 which is also hefty, but worth it! Especially if you are recovering from either, shoulder or biceps surgery, even pectoral surgery.
There is a similar device called the Burn Machine that simulates speed bag training with slight resistance available. However; they declined to be reviewed, so I can’t say how good of a product it is. I haven’t touched it, not sure of its quality or if it has a similar effect. All I know is your hands also go in a circle. However their circles are much larger.
With the small tight circles of the Dynamax it forces your muscles to contract and if you mess up the motion the Dynamax jerks and makes you stabilize it. I can tell you when your shoulders are burning big time, you don’t want to have to stabilize it!! Ouch 😭 it burns so bad!
Does the Burn Machine do that? We will probably never know…

After continued use I figured my tolerance would get better… No! It still burns the hell out of my shoulders quickly! Probably because I can rev it faster!
**Update** April 21st 2014
I am still using my Dynamax and powerballs every other day as an addition to my workout. I use it at home while watching tv.
No this is not a shake weight and nothing like a shake weight! It produces torque making you contract your muscles to control it and the faster the speed the more torque, the more torque the more burn!
