The Science In Our System

Innovative thinking. Years of scientific studies and research. Breakthrough technology. That’s all it took to create the world’s best, most sustainable fat loss and muscle gain system in the world.

The innovative technology used exclusively in the X-Force Body™ program is the most meaningful advance in strength training in the last 30 years.

Each X-Force Body exercise machine houses a patented “tilting” weight stack which allows for a 40% heavier resistance on the “negative” or lowering part of the exercise. This heavier negative resistance greatly increases the intensity of muscle exertion during each repetition, which translates into significant strength gains and fat loss in less time!

Results that previously required three, four or five hour-long workouts a week can now be stimulated with only two, 30-minute X-Force Body sessions weekly. Try a FREE workout on us!

Negative Training

Exercise scientists have found that negative (accentuated) resistance training can rapidly improve muscle size and strength. There are two phases in every strength exercise: In the positive training phase, the muscle shortens as it contracts to raise the weight. In the negative phase, the opposite happens: the muscle lengthens as it resists the weight being lowered. When we lower a weight, we are approximately 40% stronger than when we raise it.

The idea behind the X-Force Body machine is simple: by tilting the weight stack 45 degrees on the positive motion, we’re able to supply a 40% heavier load to the negative phase. The result is a deeper inroad on each repetition and more efficient (negative) training.

Watch to see how our machines maximize your total body workout.

Since negative training puts more load on the muscles, additional recovery time is needed between training sessions. This means you need to get extra sleep and rest while on the X-Force Body program – you only need to work out on the machines twice per week!

    Ellington Darden, PhD, The Man Behind The X-Force Body Fat Loss Program

    Exercise Scientist and Developer,
    X-Force Body Program

    The X-Force Body program was developed by renowned exercise scientist Ellington Darden, PhD, author of more than 50 books, including The Body Fat Breakthrough.  While researching the principles of X-Force Body for that book, Dr. Darden put more than 100 men and women through a 6-week program of twice weekly X-Force workouts, superhydration, a carbohydrate-rich meal plan, and extra rest and sleep. The results were remarkable, with many participants losing up to 30 pounds in just 30 days* and still maintaining their new bodies and lifestyles more than a year after the program concluded.

    Simply put:


    During the first months of any diet, your body will lose fat and muscle. When you gain back the weight, which almost always occurs by going off the diet, you add back only fat. It’s much easier to put on fat weight than it is to gain muscle weight.

    Darden’s book on negative training.

    “That’s the dirty little secret of most popular diet plans that don’t combine muscle-maintaining exercises with the calorie reduction,” says exercise researcher Ellington Darden, PhD, and author of the Men’s Health and Women’s Health book, The Body Fat Breakthrough. “More muscle is your ticket to a better body.”

    It’s no secret, however, that muscle is more metabolically active than fat. By having more lean muscle on your skeleton, you’ll burn more calories even at rest. But building muscle fast to spur your body’s fat loss is a more elusive goal. Darden discovered a super-efficient way to achieve this goal with a new Swedish exercise machine called X-Force.

    “The results on my test panel were amazing,” says Dr. Darden.

    “X-Force makes a 40 to 50 percent greater ‘inroad,’ or stress on your muscles, compared with regular style of training,” says Darden. This deeper inroad stimulates key hormones that boost muscular growth and oxidizes fat-cell content at a faster-than-normal-rate.

    “It may be that the deeper inroad, combined with just the right amount of carbohydrates, decreases insulin responsiveness in fat cells and they shrink,” says Darden.

    The effect of the X-Force Body program is to stimulate muscle while losing fat, increase metabolism and make it easier to keep lost fat off. The science behind our program is compelling. Negative training triggers the body’s natural hormones to engage in what is called “muscle-fat crosstalk,” which activates the body’s chemistry to speed-up the building of muscle and the shrinking of fat.

    An amazing body transformation is visible week by week in both male and female X-Force Body trainees.

    With continued attention and maintenance, the X-Force Body Program leads a person almost automatically to a lifetime of muscular strength, body leanness, and vibrant health. Talk to an X-Force Body coach today.

    Those 35 extra pounds vanished! Now I have a curve, right above my jeans, that makes me looks so much more shapely. Plus, I have found my cheek and collarbones.*

    Your metabolism will be kicked into overdrive, but it doesn’t mean you can eat everything in sight.

    Our Diet Plan For You

    Drink water to burn fat!

    This isn’t your typical high protein, low carb and low sugar nutritional or diet program. The suggested eating plan in the X-Force Body program is backed by science and delivers proven results in conjunction with the negative training machines for all body types. Exercise scientist Ellington Darden, PhD, calls the critical steps to X-Force Body success “Fat Bombs” because they are the leading edge techniques for targeting belly fat.

    In our program, nutrition focuses on three fundamental habits.

    Super-Hydration and Cold Water Therapy

    You will stifle hunger and burn more calories by drinking a gallon of ice water every day and keeping your body cool to activate the fat-burning power of your body’s brown fat stores.

    Descending Calories

    You will embark on a six-week eating plan that descends the calories by 100 with each two-week period. Men drop from 1,600 to 1,500 to 1,400 calories and women move from 1,400 to 1,300 to 1,200 calories.

    Carbohydrate-Rich Meals

    You will consume small meals that are composed of approximately 50 percent of the calories from carbohydrates, 25 percent from fats, and 25 percent from proteins.

    It might sound too good to be true, but you don’t have to be a gym rat to lose weight and keep it off.

    More Sleep = More Muscle

    What is the best thing you can do after an X-Force Body workout? Get a good night’s sleep.

    “90 percent of the muscle you build after working out occurs while you’re sleeping,” says Darden. “So if you don’t get enough sleep, you’re literally throwing away all the effort you put into your workout.”

    Muscle repair and fat loss increase during sleep.
    Muscle repair is made when you sleep.

    The muscle repair and building that occurs during sleep also burns a lot of calories. In fact, you burn most of your daily calories while your eyes are shut, so don’t shortchange your calorie burn. In a recent study, test subjects who slept an average of 8.5 hours each night burned 400 more calories a day than those who slept only 5.5 hours a night. On the X-Force Body program, you will learn how best to tap into the rejuvenating, calorie-burning power of rest and sleep.
