The eleventh myth “strength does not depend on body weight! In training for mass, you do not have to increase loads – your goal is not strength. As the world long and wide myth strength does not depend on the weight of the body is repeated by people with complexes. They deny physics and several decades of sports medicine observation. These are both martial artists and people exercising at gyms. THE FOLLOWING FIGURE shows the extent to which the force depends on the mass. As you can see, the force depends DIRECTLY on the mass.
In combat sports, this is especially important, hence WEIGHT CATEGORIES. If the weight of the body did not matter, in Thai boxing there would be no separate weight categories, eg every 4 kg … ISKA kickboxing are even separate weight categories every … 2 kg. Similarly, weight categories in weight lifting, 3-warfare, etc. If the weight of the body did not matter, the strongmen would not weigh 130-160 kg. Very often the body weight does not give effective strength in bodybuilding. It is a pathology of training – bodybuilding splits and the use of doping can have such effects. A powerful person then does the workout with tiny weights – the muscles stretch, damage and grow – but there is no force behind this mass (the sarcoplasmic hypertrophy occurs mainly in the 50-70% CM range and the repetition range over 12 repetitions). Unfortunately, if you do not want to be like saying “Looks like Tarzan,” like Jane, use heavy loads in training (75-90% CM in 3-8 repetitions).
How is muscle growth possible (increase in circumference) without any increase in strength? It is enough to damage the muscle mechanically – stretching during exercise – microdamages will be repaired, however, the increase of tissue does not have to increase the strength of the player (instead of the increase in muscle fibers there is an increase in surrounding tissue fibers – the sarcoplasmic hypertrophy mentioned many times). What’s more, the use of doping means that the necessary hormonal impulse is delivered not from the body (and this gives high weights and multi-art exercises), and from the outside. How is it? And did you write that there is strength behind mass of the body? Yes, but the person exercising in the wrong training (50-70% CM, a large number of repetitions), compared to the person training strength (3-fight, strongman, weightlifting, 1-8 repetitions, 85-100% CM) will be very poor. Muscle fibers can grow as a result of their permanent damage and unfortunately the athlete will not benefit from it – there is no adaptation of the nervous system.
The muscles themselves do not bear loads. And here we come to the second myth In training for mass, you do not have to increase loads – your goal is not strength. If you do not increase the loads, especially in multi-joint exercises (squats, MC, paddling, pulling on the stick, bench press, toss, squeeze, etc.), it means that something wrong with your workout … Source Stuart McRobert – “Weight Training Techniques, 2000 Pumping muscles with low weights and isolated exercises leave professional, very heavy and sometimes relatively strong bodybuilders. But why can they train in isolation, with smaller weights – and I can not? Because PRO for years built mass and strength of complex exercises, on heavy weights (squat, deadlift, paddling, pull-up, etc.) – and now they have to put in a lot less effort to maintain their form (they additionally use doping agents!). They can afford isolation and pumping. 99% of the population will not grow by exercising this way. If you think that strength is not needed for anything, then answer yourself, why bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger (does not require presentation) had performance – bench press – 227kg, – deadlift – 315kg – squats – 225kg x8 “. Also think about why RONNIE COLEMAN (one of the biggest PRO BB in the world) uses such heavy weights in training
