Accomidating resistance excercise equiptment
He agreed thatonly time will tell whether the new tech is better than what has gonebefore.I also gave Scott Naidus an opportunity to respond to thisarticle.
Traditional planks, side planks, squats and lunges are also in this category as the load is constant throughout the movement of the exercise.An experienced and educated spotter can be helpful in ensuringthat the lifter is working at the highest level of stress simply byadding to or taking away some of the weight in the lifter's hands. With the new machine, a lifter canalter the amount of resistance at any time, thereby accounting formomentary fatigue or a sticking point in a given movement.As usual,the chief drawback is the level of training wisdom of the lifter inknowing when to alter the resistance, and by how much.For example, the weight stays constant during both the pushing and lowering phase of a bench press.The same is true for biceps curls, shoulder presses, barbell rows and other similar exercises.This innovation allows the user to adjustthe resistance at any instant during a movement.
The inventor usesthe term dynamically controlled resistance (DCR) to describethe way the machine works (see his commercial site
Inreply, the author agreed with the need to lift weights more slowly atfirst, and that the importance of motor control is why "..alllike free weights more than machines.." William Kraemer was a little more positive than Stephen Plisk, buthe raised several issues.
I quote with minor editing: The author thought that this response was fair.
He said that it was not his intention to replace freeweights with his machines.
His objective is to give athletes anothertool to maximize performance.
The reviewer also downplayed the importance of "time understress".
