Accommodating resistance machines - common era dating system

if you add bands or chains to any of the above exercises you get variable resistance....if you use resistance bands only or the old universal gym systems, and I think the strive brand of exercise equipment has variable cams in their machines that can move the heavy point to the beginning, middle, or end.

Now, let’s get into the methods of accommodating resistance Peak Contraction Maximal effort is at the weakest point of the strength curve (e.g., when using the pec deck and leg press).

Bands on the bars favorably cause more stretch reflex due to overspeed eccentrics.

By stretching and contracting, bands work like ligaments and tendons, promoting optimal weight in the bottom and the top.

If the load is constant through the ROM, it's constant resistance.

Add a lobed cable swivle and it becomes variable resistance.

If load is placed with no joint movement it's a "static" resistance, although I would never use that term.

It's, as has been pointed out, called isometric resistance.The greatest effort must be at the start, but approaching lockout (finish) it becomes easier due to the force-velocity.Accentuation This is training only in the range of a main sport movement that requires max strength.I have no idea of what you mean by "accommodating resistance." What is it that you really want to know?It is NOT a question on the ISSA TEST as all test questions are true or false & multiple choice.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.
