This is because it was not just words by Nick Mitchell, but also photos of Rich Phillipps (our female fat loss personal trainer) taken in our own London personal training gym.Â In fact if you squint hard enough at some of the exercise demonstration photos you can even see a black & white photo of me lurking on a far wall.Â Anyone who makes the suggestion that it is a B&W shot because they didn’t have colour back in my day will be forever banned from this blog!!All being well the article will inform you about why accommodating resistance is such an important tool for advanced trainees, and if you want to read up on the subject in a bit more detail I have written a more in depth piece (Accommodating Resistance and Weight Training With Chains) that is featured in the training section on the main Ultimate Performance website.Some quick take home lessons on Accommodating Resistance include: 1) Never use chains and the principle of Accommodating Resistance unless you have been weight training for at least 12 months, and in most cases 18 months would be better.
We’ve learned that matching an exercise’s load to its force curve offers unique benefits to getting bigger and stronger.
Taking advantage of this combination is called accommodating resistance.
It’s always nice to see my articles published (words made flesh so to speak!
) and despite what will hopefully remain a glut of work with major magazines (I think we had articles in about five publications last month) I was very pleased with the latest one, on the principles of accommodating resistance in weight training, to appear in Men’s Health.
5) And finally, if you are one of the poor sods stuck at a commercial gym that will not allow you to use chains and bands and therefore have no clue as to the real benefits of utilising accommodating resistance in your training, then please heed my heartfelt advice and go join a real gym!
Â We have our personal training gym in London that is choc full of chains and bands, and there are plenty of other venues to try.Â If you are struggling to find one just post a comment below and I will tell you the nearest one that I know to you.You would get more response if you asked what the difference is between the different types of resistance and their application.anything with only a barbell or dumbbell is constant resistance.So at the top of the squat, we are losing some of the benefit of the exercise.This is also an advantage, as it has been shown that this is how our muscles evolved to work and is a natural type of stress to the body that helps us develop better stabilization strength, and power as well (Hatfield, p. For general population training this will improve a client’s joint integrity through training the stabilizer muscles and also teach them how to move objects in real life better than machines.Accommodating resistance is an advanced lifting technique that can improve your explosive strength and help you target specific muscles.
