I and why should you listen to me?
am I and why should you listen to me? My name is Blake Kassel and
simply put, I have already tried it all. Exercise and strength training
has been a part of my life since childhood. I had my first set of
free weights when I was 13, a Soloflex when I was 15, and joined
a hard-core bodybuilding gym in NYC when I was 16.
I once tried
to calculate all of the collective time that I had spent in the
gym and I was shocked to see that it worked out to several years!
Although I had
access to heavy weight equipment there were so many many times that
I wished I had an exercise tool that I could use in my room, on
the road, or even outside. When I was in college (those were the
days when I was competing in Bodybuilding) someone told me about
these new great exercise bands that I could use right in my room.
There was one
problem - they did not have enough resistance to challenge my muscles
- and back then I WAS STRONG.
I spent a year
and a half perfecting the Bodylastics Fitness Band System so that
it can be used by people of all levels of fitness. This fitness
band system will enable you to combine bands so that you can create
the equivalent of a 45lb dumbbell or barbell. This 45lbs feels like
60 lbs though because you must actually perform the negative movement
of the exercise.
does the muscle work?
we go any further, let's talk about strength and how it relates
to your muscle. Do you know how a muscle works? It's actually a
great question. Your muscle has many many fibers that run along
it's length. When your body tells your muscle to shorten, something
happens called crossbridging (this is very complicated so I won't
bore you) which in turn causes the muscle fibers to contract and
shorten. When you work your muscle against resistance microscopic
tears in the muscle are created. This is why you get sore. When
the tears heal it generates a stronger and many times a slightly
will my muscles get stronger with anything but weights?
pretty simple, really. When you overload your muscle with resistance
your muscle will have to adapt. How's it going to adapt? It is going
to have to become stronger. How will it become stronger? It will
have to get bigger. This is the principle of adaptation.
fact about working your muscle against resistance is that your muscle
does not know the type of resistance it is. Yes, your muscle is
blind. It will not know whether you are working with free weights,
machines or fitness bands.
I have met many
bodybuilders and powerlifters who have added muscle and strength
using fitness bands. As I said you must make sure that you can add
enough resistance with your fitness band set (like Bodylastics)
so that the muscle is struggling on the last rep of every set.
How do fitness bands work?
have been around for a long time, although they have really become
popular again in the last 4 to 5 years. Jack La Lanne sold fitness
bands as an exercise tool in the 50's!
How do fitness
bands work? The first fact to remember is that your muscle is blind.
It only knows that it is working against resistance not what type
of resistance. Fitness bands create resistance (tension) as you
stretch them. Believe it or not they actually have an advantage
over free weights. Elastic Resistance creates more resistance as
you stretch it as opposed to free weights where the tension is constant.
Why is that an advantage? When your muscle is just starting to shorten
it will be using less muscle fibers (fibers actually are what make
up your muscles) - this is when you want less resistance. As it
shortens further the muscle will recruit more and more muscle fibers
- this is when you want the muscle to work harder against more resistance.
This is very similar to the "cam system" which you will
find on the $1000 machines in the best gyms.
