away the residue with a water dampened cloth.
Maintenance
Page 5-1
Cybex VR Owner’s Manual
More Difficult Stains
• Dampen a soft white cloth with a solution of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite),
10% bleach, 90% water. Rub gently. Rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove
bleach concentration.
• The same procedure can be used with full strength household bleach, if necessary.
• Allow bleach to puddle on the affected area or apply with a soaked cloth for
approximately 30 minutes. Rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove any
remaining bleach concentration.
Alternative Method for Difficult Stains
• Dampen a soft white cloth with rubbing alcohol and rub gently. Rinse with a water
dampened cloth to remove any remaining rubbing alcohol concentration.
NOTE: To restore luster, a light coat of spray furniture wax can be used. Apply for 30
seconds and follow with a light buffing using a clean white cloth.
Please Review Carefully
When using strong cleaning agents such as rubbing alcohol or bleach, it is advisable to
first test in an inconspicuous area. Other cleaning agents may contain harsh or unknown
solvents and are subject to formula changes by the product manufacturer without notice.
Should you desire to use other cleaning agents, carefully try them in an inconspicuous
area to determine potential damage to the material. Never use harsh solvents or cleaners
which are intended for industrial applications. To clean stained or soiled areas, a soft white
cloth is recommended. Avoid use of paper towels.
Cleaning products may be harmful/irritating to your skin, eyes, etc. Use protective gloves
and eye protection. Do not inhale or swallow any cleaning product. Protect surrounding
area/clothing from exposure. Use in a well ventilated area. Follow all product
manufacturer’s warnings. Cybex and its vendors cannot be held responsible for damage
or injuries resulting from the use or misuse of cleaning products.
2. Frames - Wipe down all frames using a mild solution of warm water and car wash soap.
Be sure to dry thoroughly. AVOID acid or chlorine based cleaners and also cleaners
containing abrasives as these could scratch or damage the equipment.
3. Chrome - Clean chrome tubes, first using chrome polish and then using a car wax seal.
Neutral cleaners with a pH between 5.5 and 8.5 are recommended. Be sure to dry
thoroughly. AVOID acid or chlorine based cleaners and also cleaners containing abrasives
as these could scratch or damage the equipment.

Cables Adjustments
Three types of cable tension adjustment are used on Cybex Strength Systems:
1. Jam Nut Adjustment - This type uses a jam
nut and a tension adjustment nut at the cable
cam end as the primary adjustment. The other
end of the cable usually contains a roll pin
adjustment. See Figures 6 and 8.
2. Rod End Adjustment - This type of adjustment
contains a socket head cap screw (SHCS)
securing a cable rod end bearing to the

Glute - 4880
• Path of Motion - The machine utilizes a
pivot position and input design that provides
a motion that is primarily hip extension with
minimal knee extension. This path of motion
provides for functional training in a
closed-kinetic chain fashion.
• Variable Resistance - The cam provides
varying resistance which appropriately
matches the force output of the movement.
• Adjustable Abdominal Support - An
abdominal support is user adjustable to
provide support of the abdomen helping to
encourage maintenance of proper spinal alignment limiting inappropriate lumbar extension
or rotation of the torso.
The Gluteus Maximus
• Hip Extension - The Gluteus Maximus, the
hamstring group and the adductor group are
the primary hip extensors. The gluteus
maximus and the adductor magnus are the
only extensors that maintain activity regardless
of hip and/or knee position. The gluteus
maximus is also responsible for external
rotation of the hip joint. This does not imply,
however, that prepositioning the hip in external
rotation during resisted hip extension
movements increases effectiveness.
• Range of Motion - The normal active range of
motion of the hip is generally considered to be
-20 to 120 degrees. The actual motion
available is dependent upon the position of the
knee due to the numerous multi-joint muscles
MUSCLES TRAINED
influencing the hip and knee joints. By flexing
the knee in the start position, the limitation of
hamstring length is eliminated and the stated range of motion may be achieved. The
position of hyperextension stated (-20 degrees) will vary dramatically with the individual's
degree of iliopsoas tension.
Exercises
Page 2-13
Cybex VR Owner’s Manual
• Associated Muscles - Hamstring effectiveness in resisted closed-kinetic chain hip
extension is minimized due to concurrent knee extension. Regardless of knee position, the
hamstring group is maximally effective at approximately 60 degree and from that point
onward gradually loses mechanical ability to extend the hip; it becomes virtually ineffective
from 0 to -20 degrees. With the exception of the adductor magnus, the muscles of the
adductor group decrease in effectiveness as they extend beyond various positions of
flexion ranging from 70 to 40 degrees.
The Positioning
• Adjust abdominal pad height by releasing
pullbutton and bringing pad to desired height.
The abdomen should be gently supported by the
pad.
• Check the weight to insure the appropriate
resistance has been selected. Body position and
control of the motion should never be
compromised by excessive weight.
• Place left knee on knee pad.
START POSITION
• Rest the forearms on the arm pads and grasp
handles.
• Place right foot on the foot plate.
The Motion
• Stabilize the spine by tightening the abdominals
and then the erectors to prevent torso
extension/flexion or rotation.
• Tighten the glute and pressing through the heel,
press the foot plate upward in an arching motion
toward the ceiling.
FINISH POSITION
• Slowly return to the starting position with a
smooth controlled motion.
• Repeat for opposite leg.
