Speed Principle

Speed Principle

To a big extent, this popular method is contradictive to the usual training methodologies, that recommend us to mostly use an even and regular pace throughout the whole motion of the given exercise. This, of course, allows us to keep constant tension on the working musculature. The advantages to this type of training were talked […]

Partial Reps

Every movement that requires us to overcome the resistance without reaching the maximum possible amplitude is a partial rep. However, unlike the incomplete ROM, the method of partial reps is more differentiated and can be realized in the first, second and third 1/3 of the movement’s amplitude. There are options, with which we can eliminate […]

Such mobilization of the organism, done within a relatively short time window, is not possible without the active presence of the endocrine mechanisms. So, for example the release of the hormones […]

Actually, this can be determined very easily, by just looking at the dynamics of the given person’s exercise execution. Weightlifters and power-lifters create strong inertial movements to overcome the limiting points […]

Peak Flexion

Peak Flexion

This is a method that helps maintain the isometric tension of the working muscles, when they are in the state of complete contraction, also known as ‘Peak flexion’. From a physiological perspective, this method is a combination of dynamic and isometric muscle activity. If we look at it through the prism of bodybuilding priorities, this […]
