Why is there an inverse relationship between force development and the velocity of movement…. o the intrinsic speed of coupling and uncoupling of contractile elements limits force development as velocity increases o the slower you go the more cross bridges can be made per unit time o eccentric is higher because of work done on muscle o power is highest at 1/3 of maximum velocity as a combined function of the number of contractile cross bridges doing work and the time available to do

Unformatted text preview: the work at that velocity. Thus, training for increased power should be done at about 1/3 of maximal velocity against the highest resistance possible. Power = Force x Velocity Power = Force x distance/time at lower than 1/3 max velocity, force increases but the time is also increased, therefore power decreases at higher than 1/3 max velocity, force decreases and therefore power decreases even though time is also decreased...
