Example text

Using the same car engine analogy, most people are firing only two or three of their eight cylinders. By activating more of your muscle “cylinders” (recruitment) and “firing” them at a greater frequency (firing rate), or learning to contract your muscles harder, you will build strength without adding extra muscle. Remember this equation: Tension = Force. The more your muscles tense, the greater strength they display. Force and tension are essentially the same thing. ” To acquire a skill takes practice.

Re: KBs or DBs? From: Rob Lawrence I just don't think DBs give you the same workout. With KBs, the lifts are through a very long range of motion due to the weight shift. With DBs, the movements are highly abbreviated, especially in something like the clean. I've done the Russian Kettlebell Challenge‘ (RKC) with DBs a few times when KBs weren't available, and although it was OK, it was kind of unsatisfying. Re: KBs or DBs? From: mlilley I must say KBs add a whole new dimension to aerobic and anaerobic training.

When it comes to building strength, the gym wisdom is quick to sum it up as the attempt to do another rep when all your reps have been done and to lift another 5 pounds when all your pounds have been lifted. This “Do as many reps as you can and then one more” mentality of strength development sounds cute and macho, but it has no bearing on reality. It is training to failure! Muscle failure is more than unnecessary—it is counterproductive! Neuroscientists have known for half a century that if you stimulate a neural pathway—say, the squat “groove”—and the outcome is positive, future squatting will be easier, thanks to the socalled Hebbian rule.
