Define accommodating resistance
So our objective is to increase linear speed through increased peak power.
An athlete with more power has greater torque, leading to a quicker athlete with more top end speed.
Had you blasted past it, the rest of the range of motion would have felt easier, and you likely would have finished the rep.
The sticking point occurs because muscles struggle with poor leverage or when they function weakly. About halfway down, your elbows flare out away from your shoulders. At the top and bottom of the movement, your elbows are closer to your shoulders.
Power can be trained over a wide variety of intensities and with different methods (read more on Power Training intensities and Power Training modes in the article The Importance Weight Training Has On Power)One thing that all of these methods with different intensities have in common is the voluntary effort to move the resistance as fast as possible.
Because power is the ability to exert force in the shortest period of time.
This means the bench press will feel hardest at the bottom through the middle of the exercise, not because you have a weakness.
This happens due to mechanics and physiology that applies to everyone, without exception.
1) Hill running: Jerry Rice was famous for running hills during the off-season to prepare for the season.
And can it fit into a strength and conditioning program?
