Static Contraction Training
Authors of Power Factor Training books in 1993 received a lot of feedback from many of the tens of thousands of bodybuilders and strength athletes using the new system. They were told over and over again how people had achieved strength gains and muscle growth at unprecedented rates, even though they were moving the bar in only a six to eight inch range of motion. The authors of this book always were listening for ways to improve results. Soon they started to hear from people who had made steady progress until they hit a plateau that was difficult to break. Then they applied author’s theory further. They increased the weight but decreased the range of motion to only about two or three inches. What happened? They’d bust through their plateau and experience more muscle growth!
