The Growing Promise of Shorter, More Intense Strength Training Workouts

Exercising one hour a week and getting the same results as traditional strength training might sound impossible.  However, University of Florida orthopedics researchers have developed a system that may do just that.

The system uses eccentric (negative) resistance training, which capitalizes on the fact that the human body can support and lower weights that are too heavy to lift.

According to UF Health Science Center:

“Through a system of motors, pulleys, cams and sensors it adds weight when a person is performing a lowering motion, and removes that weight when the person is lifting.  As a result, the body starts seeing loads, resistance and forces that it doesn’t normally see”.
