 Minami Fukushima Shimbun

A news site of the local newspaper "Fukushima Minyu Shimbun" that represents Fukushima Prefecture. Since it was first published in Meiji 28, we have been transmitting the latest community-based news as a “friend of the people of the prefecture”. The prefectural news covers a wide range of local news by connecting 25 news bases in Fukushima prefecture. We are also focusing on recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake and articles related to TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. We will deliver a variety of articles such as gourmet, sightseeing, events, readable serials.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING What is (kinryoku training)?Skeletal muscleOutput, maintenance and improvement of endurance(English edition (Muscle hypertrophy) A general term for exercises aimed at.What you do by applying resistance to the target skeletal muscle isResistance trainingAlso called. There are various ways to apply resistance,重力,inertiaDepending on what you use, rubber, etc.ElasticityAre generally used, and those using resistance due to hydraulic pressure or air pressure are generally used. Especially when using the resistance due to gravity,Weight trainingAlso called.

Output of muscle strength

Muscle contraction is determined by the cross-sectional area of ​​the muscle and the development of the nervous system.Strength training is done for the purpose of developing either or both of these.

Classification of training methods

Classification by skeletal muscle activity pattern

The activity pattern of skeletal muscle exerts its power while changing its lengthIsotonic muscle activity(Isotonic muscle action)[1]And exerts power without changing isokinetic muscle action and lengthIsometric muscle activity(Isometoric muscle action)[1]Broadly divided into[Note 1].. The motion caused by isotonic muscle activity is called isotonic motion, and the motion caused by isometric muscle activity is called isometric motion, or simply isometrics.

In considering isotonic, isometric and isotropic muscle activities, not only "movement" but also "load" must be taken into consideration. Isotonic muscle activity is “exercise for a certain load”, so the speed and force exerted by the muscle are adjusted according to the load. On the other hand, isometric muscle activity is basically “exercise for an immovable object” and does not move, and the load corresponds to “force exerted by muscle”. Isokinetic muscle activity is "exercise in which a load is applied corresponding to the force exerted by the muscle in the exercise area". Training is a typical example of training by a machine that controls "exercise speed" and "load" with a computer so as to achieve uniform motion. Although it is not always uniform in all exercise areas, "exercise in which a load corresponding to the force exerted by the muscle in the exercise area is applied" by the air cylinder or hydraulic cylinder is also defined as uniform muscle activity. In other words, from the viewpoint of load, isotonic muscle activity “adjusts the force exerted by the muscle for a certain load”, whereas isometric muscle activity/constant muscle activity “load”. Is more suited to the power exerted by the muscles."

As an example, push-ups andBench pressIs classified as isotonic exercise because the load is constant and the arms and chest muscles expand and contract. It is sometimes called an isometric exercise because a motion that is static in a push-up posture (called a plank or stick pose) does not move, but it is adjusted (the force and movement exerted by the muscles according to the load are adjusted). Since the load does not match the force exerted by the muscle, it is hard to say isometric exercise from the viewpoint of load. The movement to move an immovable object, the movement to stretch a rope that does not extend, and the movement to press both hands holding the palms together are "isometric exercises". Has become. Also,SpringThe movement that holds the rubber tube in the stretched state to the maximum is "isometric movement". When the spring or rubber tube is stretched by the muscle force, the tension increases, and when the tension is the same as the muscle force, it cannot be stretched any further. Holding in this state results in "isometric motion", and similarly, holding the compression spring in the maximum compressed state also becomes "isometric motion". The advantage of this method is that the strength of the muscle can be determined by the degree of expansion/compression of the spring/rubber.

Health benefits

Exercise intensity and effects

The effects of resistance training areExercise intensityMore different. Generally, it is said that muscle strength develops when exercise intensity is high and the number of repetitions is small, and muscle endurance develops when exercise intensity is low and the number of repetitions is large.[11].

According to Harvard Medical School, the guidelines suggest 2-3 sets of articulated exercises for each major muscle group.Multi-joint exercise is an exercise that acts on multiple joints at once.Exercise 6-6 times in each workout of the six major muscle groups: chest, back, arms, shoulders, legs, and calves[12].
