CrossToner has a few advantages over these traditional trapezius exercises.
Compared to the cable machine, dumbbell and kettlebell exercises, CrossToner has the distinct advantage of portability, since it’s ultra light weight. First, you can’t lug a fitness machine around with you, and second, dumbbells and kettlebells aren’t very portable, either.
Compared to using resistance bands, CrossToner has a more controlled range of motion, coupled with an even resistance curve throughout the length of the motion. Looking specifically at a comparison to resistance bands, it would take 11 different sets of conventional resistance bands to achieve the number of resistance levels as the CrossToner.
