How ropes provide a dual force effect to improve physilogical response.
Ropes are significant in that they create a dual-force dynamic effect, one that uses the force of gravity and the force created by rope waves to amplify and improve all of the human systems physiological response.
Most of the implements people use today increase the effects of gravity on the body, creating a physiological response in the systems the athlete is trying to improve or build adaptations.
So if an athlete is trying to grow adaptations in his muscular system, he will create moderate to excessive load on the muscular system (as well as cardiovascular, pulmonary, and nervous systems) day after day and week after week using gravity-based implements (i.e. barbell, dumbbell, etc.), and it works.
If a runner is trying to improve his aerobic capacity or endurance, he will run (gravity-based load and exercise) day after day and/or week after week to build adaptations in the muscular, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and nervous systems to improve aerobic capacity/endurance.
In this way, ropes are significantly different. The athlete is able to amplify load in two directions: gravity (and the many ways we know how to leverage gravity because of the lifters, coaches, and trainers that came before us) and wave force (which is a new field of physiological pursuit, providing myriad ways to improve our body’s adaptation response). #battleropes #physiology #gravity #strength #power #conditioning #workout #training #exercise #nervoussystem #muscle #force
