AU - Franlin, Crystal G.. AU - Lancaster, Jack L. AU - Huang, Yufei. AU - Yue, Guang H.. PY - 2016/11/15. Y1 - 2016/11/15. N2 - Previous studies report greater activation in the cortical motor network in controlling eccentric contraction (EC) than concentric contraction (CC) of human skeletal muscles despite lower activation level of the muscle associated with EC. It is unknown, however, whether the strength of functional coupling between the primary motor cortex (M1) and other involved areas in the brain differs as voluntary movements are controlled by a network of regions in the primary, secondary and association cortices. Examining fMRI-based functional connectivity (FC) offers an opportunity to measure strength of such coupling. To address the question, we examined functional MRI (fMRI) data ...
During an eccentric contraction, the muscle elongates while under tension due to an opposing force being greater than the force generated by the muscle.[1] Rather than working to pull a joint in the direction of the muscle contraction, the muscle acts to decelerate the joint at the end of a movement or otherwise control the repositioning of a load. This can occur involuntarily (when attempting to move a weight too heavy for the muscle to lift) or voluntarily (when the muscle is smoothing out a movement). Over the short-term, strength training involving both eccentric and concentric contractions appear to increase muscular strength more than training with concentric contractions alone.[2] During an eccentric contraction of the biceps muscle, the elbow starts the movement while bent and then straightens as the hand moves away from the shoulder. During an eccentric contraction of the triceps muscle, the elbow starts the movement straight and then bends as the hand moves towards the shoulder. ...
The foundations for this topic can be found in the previous 4 articles in the series. Building off the understanding of viscoelastic tissues that are sensitive to the rate at which force is applied, we will examine training strategies designed to maximize muscle stimulation while avoiding injury. There are 3 types of muscle contraction:. Concentric - the muscle is shortening while contracting (the positive rep). Isometric - the muscle does not change length while contracting. Eccentric - the muscle is lengthening while contracting (the negative rep). It is widely misstated, and then repeated by others, that eccentric contractions produce more force than isometric contractions which produce more force than concentric contractions. This is not true. The force generated by muscle contraction is determined by the equation for torque reviewed in the last article, independent of the shortening or lengthening during contraction (minus a subtle detail - hysteresis - which is beyond the scope of our ...

Static muscular contraction in anesthetized animals has been firmly established to reflexly increase arterial pressure. Although group III and IV muscle afferents are known to be responsible for this reflex pressor response, there is no evidence that the stimulation of muscle mechanoreceptors, many of which are supplied by group III fibers, plays a role in causing this contraction-induced reflex effect. To provide this evidence, we recorded renal sympathetic nerve activity in chloralose-anesthetized cats while contracting the triceps surae muscles. We found that static contraction tripled renal nerve activity within three seconds of its onset, an increase that was abolished by cutting the L6 and S2 dorsal roots. On average, the contraction-induced increase in renal nerve activity was observed 0.8 +/- 0.1 seconds after the onset of this maneuver. In addition, intermittent tetanic contractions synchronized renal nerve discharge so that a burst of activity was evoked by each contraction. A ...

Eccentric exercise or resistance training is currently being used as a form of rehabilitation for sport injuries, but also as an alternative form of exercise for the elderly, those affected by neurological disorders, COPD, cardiopulmonary disorders, and cancer.[6] Muscle loss is a big problem faced by the people afflicted with the above disorders and many cannot participate in rigorous exercise protocols. Eccentric muscle contractions produce high forces with low-energy cost. According to Hortobágyi due to these properties eccentric exercise has the greatest potential for muscle strengthening.[7] To strengthen muscle the external force must exceed the muscle while it lengthens.[8] The definition of eccentric contraction is almost the exact definition of muscle strengthening. Perceived muscle damage: There is a stipulation regarding eccentric contractions in that they actually cause muscle damage and injury. Eccentric contraction may result in delayed onset muscle soreness however; the ...
The main new findings from this study of afferent arterioles from normal C57BL/6 mice were that increasing the PP from 40 to 80 mm Hg caused a myogenic contraction accompanied by an increase in ROS signal whether detected by dihydroethidium or tempo-9AC. The fluorescent ROS signal was predominately O2 · −, because it was reduced by incubation with PEG-SOD or Tempol but not with PEG-CAT and was upstream from Ca2+ because it persisted in Ca2+-free medium. Incubation of vessels with Tempol, PEG-SOD, apocynin, or DPI reduced basal and myogenic tone, whereas PEG-CAT was not effective, indicating that the responses were enhanced by O2 · − generated from NADPH oxidase. The moderation of myogenic contractions by Tempol was prevented by preincubation with PEG-SOD but was preserved by preincubation with PEG-CAT. H2O2 caused contractions at concentrations ,50 μmol/L but inhibited myogenic responses at 25 μmol/L. l- NAME increased basal tone but did not affect pressure-induced ROS generation. ...

It is intriguing how the mechanics of molecular motors is regulated to perform the mechanical work in living systems. In sharp contrast to the conventional wisdom, recent experiments indicated that motor force maintains ∼6 pN upon a wide range of filament loads during skeletal muscle contraction at the steady state. Here we find that this rather precise regulation which takes place in an essentially chaotic system, can be due to that a "working" motor is arrested in a transitional state when the motor force is ∼6 pN. Our analysis suggests that the motor force can be self-regulated through chemomechanical coupling, and motor force homeostasis is a built-in feature at the level of a single motor, which provides insights to understanding the coordinated function of multiple molecular motors existing in various physiological processes. With a coupled stochastic-elastic numerical framework, the kinetic model for a Actin-myosin-ATP cycle constructed in this work might pave the way to decently ...
The muscles can perform the same function in a specific segment (muscles of fast and slow contraction), and at the same time be antagonistic in relation to muscular action (flexors or extensors). The present research aimed to study the morphology, frequency and metabolism of fiber types and the contractile characteristics of extensor and flexors muscles of rabbit. We studied muscles anterior tibialis (AT), flexor digitorum supeficialis (FDS), extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and posterior tibialis (PT). The muscles were submitted to the techniques HE, NADH-TR and myofibrillar ATPase. In EDL and PT extensor muscles, the frequencies of red (SO + FOG) and white fibers (FG) were 68.77% and 31.23% versus 58.87% and 41.13%, respectively. In the AT and FDS flexor muscles, these frequencies were 75.14% and 24.86% versus 73.89% and 26.11%, respectively. In extensor muscles, the percentage of slow contraction fibers was 8.05% in EDL and 9.74% in PT, and in fast contraction, 91.95% in EDL and 90.26% in PT. ...
When a muscle contraction is required, it receives a message from the brain for voluntary contractions and from the spinal cord for reflex contractions. This message, called a nerve impulse or action potential, is carried along motoneurons to the muscle. It would not be practical for all the fibers in a given muscle to contract every time the motoneuron discharged an action potential. Therefore, before the motoneuron reaches the target muscle, it divides into many separate branches that independently activate groups of muscle fibers. These groupings are referred to as motor units. The number of fibers per motor unit depends on the specific muscle. A small muscle used for intricate movements will have less than 100 fibers per motor unit and less than 100 motor units in total. A large muscle used for weight-bearing and propulsion will have several thousand fibers per motor unit and several hundred motor units ...
Weight training is all about throwing the weights about right? Even the best bodybuilder of all time in my opinion, Arnie, named his video Pumping Iron which says a lot. Yet I find myself tearing my hair out when I watch most people in the gym lift weights, to be blunt their form is pretty poor. To be more specific, I am referring to their repetition tempo during each phase of the muscle contraction. Today I wanted to educate you a little on muscle contractions and the importance of utilising them.ConcentricConcentric muscle contractions occur when the muscle shortens, so a doing a bicep curl is a perfect example. Many people will perform this part of the repetition with very little control of the weight and instead employ a great deal of momentum to shift the resistance from A to B. This is a great way to go if building a super-sized ego is the main goal, but if building quality lean muscle tissue is something you are interested in I suggest you listen.During a concentric muscle contraction by
Before I start talking about using different contraction types in training and the benefits they will have, first I must explain to anyone who doesnt know about the 3 different types of contraction. Keeping it nice and basic, there are 3 different ways that your muscle can contract in order to move a part of your body. Concentric - a concentric contraction is where the muscle shortens in length causing your bodypart to move. For example when you concentrically contract your bicep, it shortens and your arm bends (flexes). Most people who will train will be primarily focused on this type of contraction as it is the one that moves the weight against the resistance. For example it is the concentric contraction that pushes the bar off your chest to lockout on a bench press. Eccentric - an eccentric contraction is the lengthening of the muscle. This occurs when you lower the weight under control. Its the opposite movement to the concentric contraction but it isnt the antagonistic muscle that
During a stretch- shortening cycle (SSC), muscle force attained during concentric contractions (shortening phase) is potentiated by the preceding eccentric contractions (lengthening phase). The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of joint angular velocity on force potentiation induced by SSC (SSC effect). Twelve healthy men (age, 24.2 ± 3.2 years; height, 1.73 ± 0.05 m; body mass, 68.1 ± 11.0 kg) participated in this study. Ankle joint angle was passively moved by a dynamometer, with range of motion from dorsiflexion (DF) 15° to plantarflexion (PF) 15°. Muscle contractions were evoked by tetanic electrical stimulation. Joint angular velocity of concentric contraction was set at 30°/s and 150°/s. Magnitude of SSC effect was calculated as the ratio of joint torque obtained by concentric contraction with preliminary eccentric contraction trial relative to that obtained by concentric contraction without preliminary eccentric contraction trial. As a result, magnitude of SSC effect
Below are two different but similar descriptions of muscle contraction that explain the processes involved in notification, contraction, and relaxation.. The following steps are involved in muscle contraction:. (1) The sequence of events leading to contraction is initiated somewhere in the central nervous system, either as voluntary activity from the brain or as reflex activity from the spinal cord.. (2) A motor neuron in the ventral horn of the spinal cord is activated, and an action potential passes outward in a ventral root of the spinal cord.. (3) The axon branches to supply a number of muscle fibers called a motor unit, and the action potential is conveyed to a motor end plate on each muscle fiber.. (4) At the motor end plate, the action potential causes the release of packets or quanta of acetylcholine into the synaptic clefts on the surface of the muscle fiber.. (5) Acetylcholine causes the electrical resting potential under the motor end plate to change, and this then initiates an action ...
Ever wonder how a muscle contracts to create movement? Weve come up with a simple guide to help you understand muscle contraction.
1. The effect of pH on excitation-contraction coupling in skeletal muscle of the toad was examined using a skinned fibre preparation which gives ready access to the intracellular environment while still allowing stimulation of Ca2+ release by the normal voltage-sensor mechanism. 2. In each fibre, depolarization-induced responses (produced by changing the ions in the bathing solution) were examined first at pH 7.1, and then at another pH between 6.1 and 8.0. At all pH levels examined, the first depolarization elicited a large response which was slightly greater (pH 7.6 and 8.0) or smaller (pH 6.6 and 6.1) than that at pH 7.1. The size of the first depolarization-induced response varied with pH in almost exactly the same manner as did the maximum Ca(2+)-activated response. The duration of the depolarization-induced response at all other pH levels was longer than at pH 7.1. 3. Repeated depolarizations (30 s or more apart) produced similar responses at pH 7.1, but at all other pH levels examined the ...
I have to do a literature review on a topic involving neurophysiology. So I chose to pick one about the force-velocity relationship of muscle contractions. The relationship shows that as muscle velocity increases, muscle force decreases. I was wondering if anybody has any research articles that show the opposite: That as velocity increases muscle force increases as well. I have searched to no avail. I appreciate any help.
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 its 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 called a Concentric Contraction.. When the load is greater than the force produced by the muscle fibres the muscle will lengthen, this is called an Eccentric Contraction, even though the muscle as a whole is lengthening, individual fibres are still contracting trying to resist the load.. Concentric/Eccentric contractions are collectively known as Dynamic contractions. When the force exerted by the fibres is equal to the load no movement takes place, this is called an Isometric Contraction. This of special interest ...
Several studies reported that exercising one limb produces gains in motor output in the same muscle of the un-exercised, contralateral limb. This phenomenon is called cross education. There are also data to suggest that muscle and brain activation are different when muscles shorten and lengthen and that the amount of cross education may be also different according to the type of muscle contraction. This thesis is an initial effort in the form of a cross sectional study to shed light on the mechanism of cross education. This project examines the hypothesis that spinal excitability varies in the resting limb according to the type and intensity of muscle contraction in the contralateral limb. The purpose of this study was to compare spinal excitability in the right wrist flexors during and after concentric and eccentric contraction of the left wrist flexors at an intensity of 100% and 60% of the maximum. Ten healthy right-handed subjects (5 females, 5 males, mean age 21 [plus/minus] 3 years) ...
Researchers in the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences have gained new insights into the fundamental properties that govern muscle activity and influence our day-to-day movement.. Prof. Geoffrey Power and his research group have discovered a unique interplay between our nervous system and a phenomenon that occurs during muscle contraction known as torque depression.. Muscle contraction is what drives human movement. For example, the movement associated with taking a drink involves contraction and shortening of the bicep muscles. This contraction generates a force called torque that causes the forearm to rotate at the elbow towards your mouth, and allows you to enjoy your morning coffee. But not all muscle contractions are created equal. During contractions where the muscle does not shorten, such as holding a travel mug at waist-level between sips, the muscle generates more torque compared to a muscle that had to shorten to match the same position. The lower amount of torque ...
A new wearable microscope enables in vivo monitoring of individual muscle fiber contractions in live humans, a feat that has not been possible despite our longstanding physiological understanding of how muscles contract. According to the report in the December 16 Neuron online, researchers led by senior authors Scott Delp and Mark Schnitzer at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, have developed a microscope by connecting an infrared light source to a fine needle containing miniaturized optics that is inserted into the muscle. The device can distinguish fast and slow twitch muscles, stimulate muscle contractions, and track changes in properties of the individual contractile units of skeletal muscles, or sarcomeres, that occur due to injury or disease. This compact, portable device could fit on a bedside pushcart, and the researchers hope to ultimately develop it into a clinically useful device for diagnosing neuromuscular diseases and monitoring their progression in human ...

THE CONTRACTION AND Relaxation OF CARDIAC FIBERS Through contraction of your coronary heart muscle fiber inside the ventricles, blood enters the arteries that depart the center for the other organs of the physique. After the contraction, the ventricles then take it easy to reduced force and make place for blood from atria. The decreased tension is definitely the diastolic stress from peace when the systolic strain occurs with the contraction of your hearts ventricular muscular tissues.. The center muscle fibers are interconnected and glimpse more such as skeletal muscle. The muscle fiber has both of those the skinny and thick filaments having a tiny sarcoplasmic reticulum. The calcium ions originate from inside and outdoors the cells thus earning the contraction of your cardiac muscle mass fiber actin-regulated . The thin and thick filaments slide using an enhance in calcium ions brought on via the motion potential within the membrane a result of the activation of ATPase with the myosin. Bulk ...

The OF studied show marked differences in contractile activity. Whilst CF contract matrix by 55% within the first 24h, the same number of TF only contract it by 10%. Whilst contraction by CF quickly reaches a plateau, TF generate sustained contraction. Final matrix contraction is the same. SF only contract matrix at higher cell density. CF generate the greatest force; TF generate 2/3 less, and SF hardly any. Three main factors determine contraction efficiency: cell volume (CF,TF,SF), cell protrusive and retractile activity (dynamic index, DI), and efficient binding to matrix fibrils. DI mirrors force generation. ML9 reduces DI and force generation. Ilomastat has a modest effect on DI and force, but dramatically inhibit matrix contraction, indicating that additional mechanisms are involved. ...
In a previous communication by one of us (G. B. (1)) it was shown that graded contractions and relaxations of natural form can be obtained in the diaphragm and in skeletal nerve muscle preparation by manipulating a faradic induction apparatus in a special manner. Briefly, this manipulation consists in imparting a smooth to-and-fro movement to the secondary coil of the apparatus, the movement taking place between the points of just maximal and just minimal stimulation. These to-and-fro movements cause certain changes of amplitude in the stimulating current, and the various patterns thus produced are faithfully repeated in the contractions of the experimental muscle, provided the changes are kept within the above-mentioned limiting points. An attempt has been made in the present research to obtain reciprocal contraction of antagonistic muscles by an extension of the above method. In the working-out of the new method of excitation, and in its application to double nerve-muscle preparations, the ...
Approach and Results-Real-time polymerase chain reaction, immunohistochemistry, and Western analyses supported the synthesis and expression of chemerin in perivascular adipose tissue, whereas the primary chemerin receptor ChemR23 was expressed both in the tunica media and endothelial layer. The ChemR23 agonist chemerin-9 caused receptor, concentration-dependent contraction in the isolated rat thoracic aorta, superior mesenteric artery, and mesenteric resistance artery, and contraction was significantly amplified (more than 100%) when nitric oxide synthase was inhibited and the endothelial cell mechanically removed or tone was placed on the arteries. The novel ChemR23 antagonist CCX832 inhibited phenylephrine-induced and prostaglandin F2α-induced contraction (+perivascular adipose tissue), suggesting that endogenous chemerin contributes to contraction. Arteries from animals with dysfunctional endothelium (obese or hypertensive) demonstrated a pronounced contraction to chemerin-9. Finally, ...
DALLAS - Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have identified a previously unrecognized small protein in cells of the human heart that plays a key role in heart muscle contraction. The protein is made from an RNA that was previously believed to be a blank or non-coding RNA, suggesting there may be many other small "non-coding" segments that play important biological roles. Significantly, the findings published today in Science offer a potential new target for developing therapeutics to boost the strength of cardiac muscle contractions in patients with heart failure, a chronic condition in which the heart pumps too weakly to supply adequate oxygen to the body. The new protein, which the researchers have named dwarf open reading frame (DWORF), comprises just 34 amino acids, making it the third smallest protein known to be encoded in the mouse genome. By comparison, an average-sized protein is 10 times larger, including about 350 amino acids. DWORF is also encoded in the human genome. The ...
where Λ is the ratio of muscle length to the "optimal" length at which maximal isometric tension is produced, and α(Λ) is a function numerically equal to the ratio of the tetanic isometric force to its maximum value. The single dimensionless constant in this relation, B, can be calculated from model parameters characterizing muscle dynamics at the optimum length, and has a value near unity for frog sartorius at 0°C. The predicted behavior is shown to agree reasonably well with experimental measurements of heat production and phosphocreatine (PCr) hydrolysis. The model relates the isometric energy rates to PCr hydrolysis in (1) cross-bridge interactions, and (2) calcium pumping into the sarcoplasmic reticulum.. ...
There are a number of factors that increase the risk of a quadriceps strain. For example, high forces across the muscle-tendon units combined with eccentric contraction can lead to strain injury. Excessive passive stretching or activation of a maximally stretched muscle can also cause strains. Muscle fatigue has also been shown to play a role in acute muscle injury(3). This may account for the observation of increased injury risk during the pre-season (when fitness levels tend to be lower, leading to the earlier onset of fatigue). However, of the four bellies, the RF is most frequently strained(4-8). There are a number of factors behind the increased vulnerability of RF; as well as crossing two joints, it contains a high percentage of explosive type-II fibres and also has a complex musculotendinous architecture, all of which are known to increase injury risk(9,10).. As noted in the NCAA study above, indirect trauma occurs for the most part as a result of eccentric contractions(4,11). This can ...
Although the contraction of each muscle cell is all-or non, it is obvious that body movements are not. Sometimes they are forceful, other times slight. This is easily accounted for by realizing that body movements are brought about by whole muscles (groups of muscle cells), not by single cell acting alone. Increasing the force of movement may simply be a matter of recruiting more and more cells into cooperative action. However, there are also more subtle means for changing the performance of individual cells.. The strength or, more precisely, the force a muscle is capable of exerting depends on its length. For each muscle cell, there is an optimum length or range of lengths where the contractile force is strongest. This is easily explained by the sliding fillament theory. The strength of contraction depends on the number of cross bridges that can make contact with actin fillaments. When the muscle is too long, few cross bridges can make contact, and contraction is weak. When the muscle is too ...

DOMS is the main reason youre slow to get out of bed the next day. Theodore Hough first described this phenomenon in 1902, stating that DOMS is "fundamentally the result of ruptures within the muscle.". Dont fret; its not as bad as it sounds. However, his statement still rings mostly true to this day. Research has found that eccentric muscle contractions cause tiny tears to the connective tissue and units of muscle known as myofilaments, which collectively make up a muscle fiber. It is this structural damage to the muscle that causes the pain and tenderness associated with DOMS.. Soreness usually starts around 24 hours after activity and peaks between 48 and 72 hours. From there, it usually dissipates and is gone completely 5 to 7 days after activity. The more strenuous the activity, the longer the soreness will last. Youre more likely to suffer from DOMS if you have taken a long break from exercise and are just getting started back, or, similarly, if you are engaging in physical activity ...

Inactivation of excitation-contraction coupling was examined in extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and soleus muscle fibers from rats injected daily with tri-iodothyronine (T3, 150 micrograms/kg) for 10-14 d. Steady-state activation and inactivation curves for contraction were obtained from measurements of peak potassium contracture tension at different surface membrane potentials. The experiments tested the hypothesis that noninactivating tension is a "window" tension caused by the overlap of the activation and inactivation curves. Changes in the amplitude and voltage dependence of noninactivating tension should be predicted by the changes in the activation and inactivation curves, if noninactivating tension arises from their overlap. After T3 treatment, the area of overlap increased in EDL fibers and decreased in soleus fibers and the overlap region was shifted to more negative potentials in both muscles. Noninactivating tension also appeared at more negative membrane potentials after T3 ...

In 1855 Guillaume Duchenne, the father of electrotherapy, announced that alternating was superior to direct current for electrotherapeutic triggering of muscle contractions. What he called the warming affect of direct currents irritated the skin, since, at voltage strengths needed for muscle contractions, they cause the skin to blister (at the anode) and pit (at the cathode). Furthermore, with DC each contraction requiring the current to be stopped and restarted. Moreover alternating current could produce strong muscle contractions regardless of the condition of the muscle, whereas DC-induced contractions were strong if the muscle was strong, and weak if the muscle was weak. Since that time almost all rehabilitation involving muscle contraction has been done with a symmetrical twin-phase wave. In the 1940s, however, the US War Department, investigating the application of electrical stimulation not just to retard and prevent atrophy but to restore muscle mass and strength, employed what was ...

Based on the framework of sliding-filament theory and on the cross-bridges dynamics, a mathematical model for the simulation of the force response and length change of individual myofibril is presented. The myofibril is modeled as a group of segments placed in series, each segment represents a half-sarcomere with active and elastic properties. A multiple-state cross-bridge formalism relates the half Sarcomere force to the chemical kinetics of ATP hydrolysis. The corresponding system of nonlinear nonlocal partial differential equations of the model is analyzed. A numerical approach is introduced and some numerical tests are performed. The proposed in-silico model enables the study of biologically relevant process in the muscle contraction process, also in the case of muscular diseases, with reasonable computational effort. ...

Initial tension often arises in a typical micro-fabrication process. It has been well recognized that the magnitude of initial tension could be high enough to cause a serious degradation in structural performance such as the deflection-based pressure sensitivity. The coupled effect due to pretension and un-symmetry upon the relevant structural responses can be very important in this case. In particularly, it may be worthy of note about the associated mechanical sensitivity for such typical sensing devices undergoing a large deflection condition. To this end, the sensitivity of an isotropic un-symmetric layered micro-layered plate under initial tension is formulated analytically. von Karman large deflection plate theory for the case of a un-symmetrically layered isotropic plate was simplified, leading to a modified Bessel equation for the lateral slope. The solutions for geometrical responses were further manipulated to obtain an analytical expression for the mechanical sensitivity for a typical layered
Posted by: Blain Start paying attention to John Little and Peter Sisco. They both picked up where Mentzer left off and took it to a whole other level. Although there is no doubt that HIT works (Its the only way I train by the way), Heavy duty - which is only a name - is equivalent to the 57 Chevy. Both John and Peter introduces us to the 2011 Dagger GT!!! Max contraction training leaves Heavy duty in the dust. Mentzer utilized max contraction several times, but was too loyal and swore by the full range of motion. He was definitely onto something, but he was stuck in the mud with the full range of motion. THIS is where John Little (Mentzers best friend) takes it to another level. Both John and Sisco are revolutionaries. Gaining 25+ pounds of muscle within a single month utilizing max contraction is nothing to be surprised about!! Why walk to work when you can drive?! Its all about precision and efficiency.. As of now, since I am near my optimum genetic potential (natural that is), I gain on ...
Answer: The #majorkey is understanding what type of contractile action is needed to both generate and absorb force.. Force absorption = eccentric. Force production = concentric. Absorbing force requires accepting the forces imparted on a body, and an eccentric contraction is needed for that acceptance. Whereas producing force requires going against the forces imparted on the body, thus a concentric contraction.. Assuming no secondary compensations, there are certain infrasternal angles (ISA) that have greater eccentric ventral cavity bias, and some that have a concentric bias:. Narrow ISA = eccentric bias = Force acceptor. Wide ISA = Concentric bias = Force producer. Now there is a HUGE (HYOOGE? SP) caveat to this: Assuming no secondary compensations.. This is a poor assumption because it seems like all the fam nowadays have compensations left and right. You can have narrows that develop concentric biases that make force absorption whack, and you can have wides that develop weird eccentric ...

Muscle can be regarded as a machine that converts chemical energy into work. The first and second laws of thermodynamics apply to muscle the same way as they apply to other machines. The first law states that the total energy remains constant when it changes from one form to another:. 427.263 kg.m = 1.000 kilocalorie = 4.184 kilojoules. The ultimate source of our energy resides in the food that we eat. The energy values of the various foodstuffs are known since the beginning of the 20th century: When 1.0-g of carbohydrate was oxidized to CO2 and H2O in a bomb calorimeter 4.1 kcal was released. Values for 1.0-g fat or 1.0-g protein were 9.1 or 4.1 kcal, respectively. Similarly, the calorie values of various substances in the body were determined and the next job was to find the chemical substance that directly provides the energy for muscle work..

I woke up Monday morning at two with a contraction and immediately went and emptied my bladder, drank water and lied down on my side. After 10 minutes, I had another contraction and decided to start recording them which followed by two more contractions that were 10 minutes apart. It was then followed by 5 more contractions that were 5 minutes apart. We decided to call the doctor and I was told to drink more water which I had already been doing, continue lying on my back and see what happens for another 30 minutes or so. We continued with the log and had more frequent contractions that were 5 to 3 minutes apart and so we decided to drive to the hospital. After filling out some papers, we were directed to Labor and Delivery Triage, where they hooked up sensors to watch the contractions and the babies heartbeats. The babies were good but I was having contractions that were 2 minutes apart. A doctor came to check my cervix and the good news was that it was still closed. I was then given a shot ...

Here are some of the benefits of isometric training.. Simple to use. For starters, Isometric training is one of the most convenient workout routines in the world. All you need is your body, a mat (optional), and off you go.. Iso exercises take minimal time. If you are short on time, then you can still do isometrics without sacrificing a lot. You dont need any equipment. You dont need a gym. Just a little bit of space.. Boost strength. This type of training engages almost all of the motor units, so its ideal for increasing strength and endurance at the same time.. Isometric training builds strength by holding intense static positions where no movement is allowed anywhere on the body, helping you increase strength by holding the muscular contraction against the resistance of your own bodyweight.. ...

Your contractions will become more frequent and occur for longer, and stronger, once your cervix has dilated (opened) to around four or five centimeters. Once your contractions become more frequent, your labour usually progresses quite quickly, all of which means you are well and truly in labour.

Stage One is associated with the start of painful contractions and the dilating of the cervix. Contractions are initially slow until the cervix reaches a diametre of 3 cm, then the increase in speed until the end of stage one, at which point the cervix is at a diametre of approximately 10 cm. Each muscle cell does not completely relax, and therefore shortens with each contraction. The retraction ring gradually moves upwards. Stage Two is associated with the delivery of the foetus. As the foetus moves down it is rotated due to the dimensions of the pelvis (ellipsoid laterally at the pelvic inlet, circular in the middle and ellipsoid medially at the pelvic outlet). This generally results in the babys head facing the mothers rectum. Abdominal contractions assist with the expulsion of the child. A breach birth occurs if the baby is delivered feet first. Stage Three is associated with the delivery of the placenta. Because of the importance of completely removing the entire placenta (abandoned villi ...

Now youre blending terms again in pseudo-scientific nonsense. Dont confuse contractile force with elasticity, these are different components. Contractile force requires energy production, you cannot just increase a muscles power as though its an entity of its own. Despite what youre saying here it goes against what you said earlier that muscle power has unlimited development while aerobic development is limited. These items are intimately related and you cannot have one without the other. If one is limited, so is the other. If you want a muscle to produce more force, you need to develop the components it needs to do it. Do this incorrectly and you might have decent speed but you wont be able to sustain it. So you cant just do things to increase a muscles force production and expect good results. You must develop cheap force production, which means development of your purest aerobic component(s). Even running into lactate (anaerobically) will leverage a strong aerobic base by ...

Im posting this for my wife. Last Tuesday at about 1am her water broke. What a relief! Contractions came on right away, however the water was clear so we decided to stay at home as long as possible. We eventually went into the hospital around 7am when they were consistently 3 minutes apart.. Labor seemed to be progressing at a manageable pace for most of the day, however they did multiple checks and the baby still hadnt dropped. By 9PM (19 hours into labor) my wife was having some pretty intense contractions and had not progressed past 8.5cms for the past 3 hours.. The contractions had also been coming one after another with seemingly no break. At one point it looked like she had 4 contractions in a row with no break in between (I heard the nurse comment that she had never seen that before). To top it off she was vomiting after each one. Her coping techniques were now unable to get her through each contraction and she was tensing up with each one. By 9:30pm this became too much and we agreed ...

Directed motion seems simple to us, but the coordinated interplay of complex processes is needed, even for seemingly simple crawling motions of worms or snails. By using a gel that periodically swells and shrinks, researchers developed a model for the waves of muscular contraction and relaxation involved in crawling. As reported in the journal Angewandte Chemie, they were able to produce two types of crawling motion by using inhomogeneous irradiation.
Susan arrived about 2:30am and checked me right away. I was only 8cm. Jill, the birth assistant arrived a little later. I was able to sit on my ball for awhile. Eventually the contractions got pretty hard and I was up pacing trying to deal with transition. Soon I felt the urge to push, which I ignored because I was thinking this would be like Michaels birth and after transition, my contractions would slow down before pushing. But then the urge to push came again. So Susan checked me again and my cervix was gone and she wanted me to push. My husband and Jill grabbed my legs and all of a sudden I was pushing. I had 3 contractions (about 9 mins) and out came Gemma at 4:29am. Much faster and less pleasantly than the laid back pushing I experienced with Michael, but I suppose if something is going to be difficult, it was good that it was quick. And although it was quick, I still came out in one piece, no tears or stitches needed (although Im doubtful that would have happened if I had pushed my ...
