Lift Less - Get Huge: The Secret Formula (Part III)

In Lift Less and Get Huge Part 1, I asked if you would be willing to lift less weight in order to get HUGE.

In Part 2, I introduced you to a SECRET FORMULA.

Now that you have the formula, I am sure you are wondering what to do with it.

NICE FORMULA, NOW WHAT?

Because F = ma, you don't always need to lift heavy weight in order to generate a great deal of force.


To make this more concrete, let's walk through an example using the deadlift.


Rob Mulligan does this without a belt


(Again, due to the audience, I am going to keep this simple and leave out the true units for Force and acceleration.)

Imagine you performed a deadlift of 350lbs at a speed of 10.

What would the force be?

F = m*a = 350 * 10 = 3500

What would the force be if I asked you to move 175lbs at a speed of 20?

F = m*a = 175 * 20 = 3500

As can be seen, you generate the same force in both situations.

Summary:

  • The lighter the weight, the faster you can lift.
  • The faster you lift, the more force you generate.


AND YOUR POINT IS ... ???

This guy hates my guts right now

In the next post, we finally answer the following questions.

  • Does lifting light weight faster make me bigger than lifting heavy weight slower?
  • Does this mean I never have to lift heavy weight again?
  • What do the guys from the Jersey Shore do?
  • Why did you take 4 posts to cover 1 topic?
