◦ machine attempts to match the force
capability of your muscle throughout ROM by
adjusting seats, lever arms and cable pulleys
to exercise muscles in multiple planes Free Weights
! Accelerating objects is a major part of sports ! Field performance
may be better duplicated
! training of neuromuscular coodination - b/c you are using other muscles for stabilization
! More whole-body training - training stimulus to all of the body’s major
musculature ! Larger portion of the body’s musculature will be
stressed - good for bone mineralization & weight management
! Total body strength can be better assessed because multiple joint
movements that require a large muscle mass can be assessed
! Weight must be controlled through all spatial dimensions – greater
! Concentric and eccentric muscle activity
! Movement velocity not controlled - must train client to carry out certain pace
! Not as consistent for research – can’t rule-out neuromu...
