The resistive force achieved is directly correlated to the surface area of the equipment and the speed at which they are being moved through the water*. Below are some of the maximum forces that the bells can generate in pounds at 60 beats/reps per minute:
- Aqualogix Maximum Resistance Bells = 60lbs
- Aqualogix or Aquastrength All Purpose Bells = 40lbs
- Aqualogix High Speed Bells = 25lbs
*Please note that the speed required to generate this resistance (especially with the larger equipment) would be extremely challenging for most people and it is not necessarily the most effective way to utilize the equipment. The resistance also changes with lever length, i.e. a chest fly at 60 reps/min would create much more resistance than an arm curl at the same tempo.
