Accommodating resistance exercise machines
The accommodating resistance makes it difficult for patients to push themselves any harder than their therapist prescribes.Always consult a doctor before beginning an exercise regimen. Olympic weightlifting is not; it is a speed-strength sport that does not build explosive power.
Resistance Method Combinations Hill’s equation of muscle contraction states that weights at high velocity produce small force, whereas low velocity against max effort produces the highest force rating.
Subjects performed 20 high-intensity contractions with 6 seconds between each reptition and 5 minutes of rest between test conditions.
The testing sequence was balanced over two days separated by one week to minimize learning and possible order effects.
Isokinetics are a type of exercise often performed in physical therapy offices.
The premise behind isokinetics is that it allows for steady, accommodating resistance throughout the range of motion during exercises.
