Oscar Rivas is a Colombian professional boxer who fought once for the vacant WBC interim heavyweight title in 2019. He has previously held the IBF International, WBC-NABF and WBO-NABO heavyweight titles. As an amateur he won a silver medal at the 2007 Pan American Games.


In the video below, he is performing a Front Squat exercise on Desmotec D.Sport. Thanks to this particular workout, he can focus on eccentric training in order to develop and improve reactive power in the lower limbs.

In this case , he is performing 4 shorts movements to create a peak of velocity and then eccentricly absorb it while performing a full squat.  The entire cicle has to be repeated four time.


As the athlete needs to develop peaks of eccentric power and perform this movement for multiple repetitions, Desmotec machines are ideal for this purpose. The eccentric training along with the support provided by the Software D.Soft, allow the user and the trainer to track power peaks in real time, obtaining a complete report about progresses and performances at the end of the exercise. This is a fundamental part in developing a personalized training programme for the athletes in order to gradually improve their performances.
