Efficiency Dictates Peak Effort


It is possible to continue time under tension in failed (improper/unsafe/inefficient) positions (alignments).

The Benefit: Greater potential for hypertrophy.
The Risk: Connective tissue strain & nefarious movement patterns.

Example: Climbers often strain the wrists working moves out of their current capacity.

Thinking beyond the hormetic benefit of the stimuli (movement). A subconscious habit must be properly/intelligently developed. Think: Bio-mechanical, neuromuscular, motor recruitment, axon myelination, etc. Again no need to geek out on this stuff. It is as simple as taking your pants off before using the toilet.

Practical. Actionable. Application.

First, work with someone who understands torque, peak tension, body positioning, etc. Then, find (search.discover) the correct body-alignment (this must be literally experienced).

There are smaller segments to be trained (hypertrophy in their purpose/nature). This movement can be broken down into many functional pieces. Example: Lying supine, legs extended and elevated from the floor, toes pointed, adductors contracted, feeling abdominal tension while maintaining a flat (hollow) back. There are multiple others, but the greater system is the final and only test.

Note: This paradigm of viewing movement must be applied to all body-weight strength feats (typically during passing windows of isometric holds).
