How far can I safely stretch the Inertia Wave® STRONG?
The Inertia Wave® STRONG has a different resistance profile than the SOLO and DUO because of the complexity of its structure. For strength exercises and core work while using the hand grips or padded belts, you are able to safely stretch the tubes up to 50 inches. We do not recommend using the Inertia Wave® STRONG as a bungee cord! Doing so will exceed its physical property and could cause damage to the product or harm to the user.
Can I use the door anchors anywhere but a basic door with hinges?
No, the Door Anchors are designed to handle stress being as locked into place as possible. If you use the Door Anchors on doors that do not have hinges, you may destroy the Door Anchor or damage your door.
What is the proper way to anchor the Inertia Wave® STRONG using Rail Anchors?
The proper way to anchor using the Rail Anchors is to keep it flat, wrap it tightly around an object, and feed the D-ring through the opening loop of the nylon strap and pull it tightly three times. Make this connection as snug as you can to the point where the strap cannot slide up or down as you utilize the Inertia Wave. Attach the carabiner to the D-ring of the Rail Anchor, and the O-ring of the tube. Make sure the carabiner is completely closed before use. Do NOT attach the Rail Anchors to any sharp or jagged objects. Be sure to use as much of the Rail Anchors as possible - do not shorten or modify (see above).
How far off the ground, and how far apart do the Rail Anchors need to be anchored?
As shown in the "Creative Ways to Anchor the Inertia Wave" video, the anchor points should be a minimum of 36-40 inches from ground at waist height, and between 24-36 inches apart. Please remember to always use your Rail Anchors.
Why does one end of the Inertia Wave® STRONG have an O-ring, carabiner, and nylon strap?
These features are part of the Rail Anchor and are used securely anchor the Inertia Wave. The combination of these components help to alleviate the stress, wear, and torque on the anchored end of the Inertia Wave® STRONG by creating a "stress curve". For best results and a longer lasting Inertia Wave, you MUST keep the Rail Anchors as extended as possible - do not wrap the Rail Anchors around objects repeatedly to shorten its length. The longer the strap, the less strain on the O-ring and tubes.
I have limited space; do I need to use the Rail Anchors?
Yes! If you omit the Rail Anchors to make up for space, you will lose energy in the tubes and weaken the O-ring. If you hook the carabiner directly to your anchor location it will tear on the O-ring and your product will not last. Your Inertia Wave will perform at 100% and last twice as long with the Rail Anchor, carabiner, and O-ring. Note: The carabiner always sits in between the D-ring of the Rail Anchor, and the O-ring of the Inertia Wave.
Do I always need to use the Rail Anchors?
Yes! The Inertia Wave® STRONG will not work properly if you decide to omit the Rail Anchor and clip the carabiner to anything else. Use at your own risk when modifying the Inertia Wave.
Can I attach the black leg and knee straps to my upper body?
Yes, get creative! If you create another exercise that works for you, we love that! Don't forget to share it on our Facebook (/InertiaWaveOfficial) and Instagram (@inertiawave) pages!
Can I perform the methods of use with the hand grips attached?
No, the Inertia Wave® STRONG has a green "noose" on each tube which you attach the hand grips to. This noose does not allow the proper wave oscillations, wave lengths, and feedback response when the hand grips are attached. If you perform the methods of use using the hand grips, you will damage the strength of the noose, or have it pulled out completely.
Can the Inertia Wave® STRONG perform all of the same methods of use as the SOLO?
Yes, every method of use you see under the Inertia Wave® SOLO can be performed in the same without the hand grips attached.
What is the difference between the Inertia Wave® SOLO and the Inertia Wave® STRONG?
The only difference is the STRONG has a green "noose" attachments built into the tubes, attachable hand grips, and two black straps for a complete upper and lower body strength training program.
