PhotobucketOut of the bottom, Jon V. turning the bar around. It tends to be the hardest part of any movement, the point at which you have to start, stop or reverse directions of the object. A heavy deadlift off the ground, the bottom of the bench or squat, the initiation of the press. It's the law of physics you've all heard, an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted on by an external force. This is because every piece of matter in the universe has inertia. Inertia is an objects resistance to change. A 500 pound barbell has a lot of inertia, its resistance to change is very high. That is why it takes a lot of external force or muscular contraction to move it, it really does not want to be moved. This may make sense of why suicides or Annie's little cookie last Friday was so hard, it's not the total distance you ran, we've all run much farther than that and faster. It's because you were, over and over, having to overcome your bodies inertial qualities. Meaning you kept having to stop, reverse and start your motion. The external force (muscular work) it takes to move your mass (measure of inertia) in a suicide is much higher than what it would be at the same distance run in a linear fashion.Workout:
