In a descending strength profile,http://www.petstilo.com.br/freerunfans.php, maximum strength is produced at the start of the lift. Examples are pull-ups, chin-ups, lat pull-downs and bent-over rows.

Most professionals consider free weight training as constant resistance, however, if you know anything about biomechanics, there is nothing constant about it, unless of course we don’t move the weight. As we push or pull, the muscles are changing length, the relationship of the resistance to the axis of motion is changing and of course acceleration, inertia,http://printogdesign.com/femcoralrunnings.php, momentum and all of those other words of physics we love (or hate) come into play.

Variable resistance is designed to change the external load throughout an exercise’s range of motion,http://smartwatchesshop.ru/store/hotfreerunpunch.php. Most of the equipment we use in the gym falls under this category.

Cams and lever systems on variable resistance equipment are designed to change the external moment arm (which affects the distance of the resistance to the axis) to match up to the changing moment arm or mechanical leverage of the user during the workout. In this way, the equipment manufacturer attempts to approximate maximal, external resistance to match the musculoskeletal systems ability (mechanical advantage) to produce force at the same instance. In these cases, the equipment is actually getting harder as the user gets stronger.

Human strength profiles are based on movements around a single joint or multiple joints. The profiles are then classified under three categories: ascending, descending and bell-shaped which are determined by the torque or force-angle relationship between the joint or joints moving. (1) A Personal Trainer or Health Care Practitioner’s understanding of the benefits and limitations of the different modes of resistance and how they may possibly match up to the natural strength profiles would be highly beneficial to the long term success and injury prevention of their clients or patients.

For people that believe that “equipment should match the user,http://hbeat.ru/neonflyruns.php,” not “the user should match the equipment” or that exercises should be “functional,http://efashions.ro/freerunblack.php,” then it’s imperative as Personal Trainers and Health Care Practitioners to consider our natural strength profiles and match them accordingly with the resistance profiles of the exercises prescribed.

Physical exercise equipment may well fall under 3 broad categories:

Strength profiles of a single joint are generally easier to figure out than multi-joint movements. The majority of athletic movements such as running, kicking, punching or throwing occur in sequential order with the larger proximal joints and muscles followed by the smaller distal joints and muscles. This is known as the “summation of speed principle.” (2) When the segments of multi-joint movements used in a bench press, leg press, squat and power clean approach full extension, the musculo-skeletal lever system gains mechanical advantage. These exercises have ascending strength.

Accommodating resistance is designed to exert force through a speed-controlled range of motion. Iso-kinetic resistance equipment is accommodating. Some professionals may argue that aquatics, hydraulics and pneumatics are undefined because they fall into both accommodating and variable resistance categories. I personally consider aquatics accommodating because the person defines the resistance based on the amount of water and speed of movement.

Single joint exercises have more of a bell-shaped curve where maximum strength occurs around the middle of the lift. (3). Examples are arm or leg curls, leg extension or triceps extension.
