Thoughts On The Force-Velocity Curve And Implications For Training

The amount of force your muscles are capable of producing varies with both the type and velocity of contraction because of differences in cross-bridge mechanics and the rate at which cross-bridges can be formed. This is known as the force-velocity curve. When you lift a weight your muscles contract concentrically, heads on the myosin filaments attach […]

Conditioning Research Interviews Drew Baye

Click here to read the original interview on ConditioningResearch.com Chris Highcock: Normally in these interviews I start off by asking a little about your background: how you got into training and how you developed your particular approach. In your case though your website explains your career in detail and clearly addresses how you have formed your philosophy […]

Isometrics: Static Holds and Static Contraction Training

The term isometrics refers to exercise protocols during which no shortening or lengthening of the muscle occurs. Traditional isometric protocols typically involve the sudden application of a maximal contraction lasting 10 to 15 seconds, usually performed against an immovable object or another muscle group. Some protocols involve holding a posture for a longer period of […]
