The key to growth and longevity and the root of all demise
One of the movements that can most be seeing in health clubs when people are working out is the incorrect velocity of the repetition. This habit is one of the most dangerous habits that someone can have while working out. The technical term that we use for incorrect velocity when performing repetitions is Internal Biokinetic Shock Loading or IBKSL™.
Internal Bio-Kinetic Shock Loading™ (IBKSL™): A condition that happens when a heavy object or weight is released at a much higher speed than when lifted causing a multiplied weight load due to velocity times mass, to the tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints of the body. This reaction produces small to large tears, bruises, and chips to the immediate area worked. These damages accumulate over time causing long-term future damage. This accumulating damage can at times surface as a serious injury by doing a normal everyday activity due to the previous stress experienced by that particular body part. IBKSL occurs when the body part finally exceeded its load bearing capability.
Velocity – Internal Bio-Kinetic Shock Loading™
The First most important Body Supporting Structure Safety aspect of executing a correct fitness program to avoid getting hurt and get maximum results from your training each time is avoiding Internal Bio-Kinetic Shock Loading™. Controlling the velocity of the weights while performing a set, no matter how many repetitions or how hard the set becomes is of utmost importance to avoid immediate or permanent long-term future damage to your connective tissues and your body’s support structures. There are differentperiods of time in a person’s fitness activity when correct “velocity” is not exercised or compromised. Some of those are:
Incorrect Velocity Practices:
- Working out in a hurry.
- Working out when tired.
- Working out when your mind is not in it.
- Always doing the same routine.
- Trying to lift too much weight.
- Trying to do too many repetitions.
- “Laying tracks.”
- Lack of concentration.
- Allowing distractions to interfere with the routine.
- Having the mentality that “what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.”
Correct Velocity Practices:
- Same speed on the effort portion as the release portion of the repetition.
- Avoiding weight that you can’t handle.
- Using the correct breathing technique.
- Allowing your breathing to control your repetitions.
- Only using the effort from the body part being exercised.
- Practicing good concentration.
- Avoiing “laying tracks” in the workouts.
- Warming up before working out.
- Cooling down after working out.
- Not working out when you are too tired.
- Not working out when sick.
