Hi everybody, it has been a long time since I posted and I wanted to put up something fitness related.
This is an essay I wrote about the four types of resistance machines/technology that is out there.
It may not be interesting to some of you, but those of you who are into exercise science and fitness gadgets and gizmos, may find some interesting ideas and perspectives. The four technologies of training equipment are constant resistance devices, variable resistance devices, accommodating resistance devices, and static resistance devices.
I'm not sure the point of your question, and I suspect that you already know the answer.The legs, arms, and trunk start with no motion, accelerate, and then decelerate.Thus, accentuation trains only in the strongest position, not the weakest.So at the top where force is high and velocity is low, it is considered maximal strength.As you work down the graph, strength-speed is next.
