If there is one thing I can tell you as a gym rat, it is that COVID-19 has severely affected people’s fitness routines. With the gym closing and making strong suggestions for social disturbances, people have turned to home workouts, including those of us enjoying a good round of aggressive cardio boxing and mixed martial arts.
While it’s true that you’ll have some time before arguing with your human partner again, Streak has launched a robot that can help you fix your MMA – and possibly kick your precious ass in the process. Can kill RXT-1, say hello to your personal combat trainer.
At first, I was a robot skeptic. As someone trained in Muay Thai, individual polymics are the best way to learn combination, coordination, speed, and agility. When you interact with another person in these extremely fast environments you learn a lot about yourself.
But in RXT-1 everything can be a human sparse companion – except for a sweaty face or a human figure to begin with. The robot has a head target, three training modes, more than 100 physical movements, a touch screen for speed and level switching, four removable arms, and a stand if you want to adjust the height and it is 12 feet high. . Your last boss is not Mishima Heechi or M. Bison. It is an anonymous and somewhat baseless robot.
If you hesitate to punch a robot in the face and possibly break its equipment, don’t worry. Muay Thai athlete Geoff Chan gave a prototype of the RXT-1, one of his signature head strokes, and the robot took it as a winner. Whether it is practice, mast pose, or compound, RXT-1 includes all levels of MMA training. Also, he won’t do you justice for dirty big characters, which I personally appreciate.
