You may think you're training because you're typically trashed by the end of it just from of the sheer amount of climbing done, but by sett…READ MORE
Types of Contraction
All types of strength are a result of individual muscle fibres contracting, a muscle fibre contracts fully or not at all, the number of muscle fibres that contract simultaneously define the amount of force a muscle can produce and whether that muscle can overcome, maintain, or slowly lower the load it's working against.
If the force generated by the muscle fibres is greater than the load, then the entire muscle length will shorten and the load will move, this is c…READ MORE
