Examples of accommodating resistance exercise equipment

Dave's been assisting and training under Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell fame for over 10 years and has consulted thousands of athletes throughout the world.

Dave is quick to point out that he's not a bodybuilder and therefore doesn't train bodybuilders.

Whether it is more effective than other machines or free weights remains to be seen.

Those of you who, like me, have spent nearly 50 years in theweight room will recall all manner of equipment that promised torevolutionize training.

I know there have been coaches that have toyed around with using bands or chains with cleans and snatches.

Travis Mash did an outstanding presentation at the 2009 Central Ohio Strength & Conditioning Clinic on using the WSBB method with Olympic lifts.

Training tools such as medicine balls, kettlebells and resistance bands also provide constant resistance.

The machine has the potential to improve strength by optimizing the time each targeted muscle spends under maximum stress.

The new machine I reviewhere may be one of the good ones.

For years, strength-training machines were built with no specialintent beyond making muscles bigger and stronger by allowing the userto work against resistance.

Jones designed the equipment to eliminate the biomechanical disadvantages found in free-weight training.

Essentially, the idea is that when a muscle is at it's weakest range of motion, the cam delivers less load and when the muscle is at it's strongest on the 'strength cure' the cam provides more resistance.
