Specific Focus: Training Strength

ACCOMMODATING RESISTANCE

ACCOMMODATING RESISTANCE

The strength of an athlete completing a certain exercise will vary throughout the range of the exercise due to the interplay between joint moment arms and muscle length-tension relationships, however we can all appreciate that an athlete is capable of lifter much heavier weight with a quarter squat than they can with a full depth squat. As has been discussed, traditional "simple strength training" techniques will really only stimulate adaptation in the deepest and most challenging part of the movement, whilst the remainder of the range goes under-stimulated. Hence as is discussed below, accommodating resistance is a method used to challenge the full range of motion such that we can properly stimulate adaptation throughout the full range.
