How We Use Time Under Tension

TIME UNDER TENSION (TUT) Time under tension is used as the unit of measurement which a muscle is put under tension for a set time to elicit a specific metabolic response & physical adaptation. We use tempo work and rep ranges to monitor our TUT for different exercises. Below is a breakdown of each strength/structural rep scheme on the strength-speed & endurance continuum. RELATIVE STRENGTH [ Neural Recovery Zone - 0-10 seconds - 1-2 reps] [ ATP-CP Recovery Zone - 10-20 seconds 2-5 reps] Relative strength is trained between 1-5 repetitions and a TUT of less than 20 seconds with the emphasis being on the athlete lifting heavier loads (70-80%+ of 1RM). The goal is to make the body more efficien

The 3 Types of Muscle Contractions

There are 3 main types of muscle contractions: Isometric, Eccentric, and Concentric. Isometric: An isometric contraction is a static action where the muscle generates force but there is no movement. When a barbell is held at the midpoint of the bicep curl, the biceps exert force but do not change in length. When the athlete places resistance against the curling movement, the biceps neither overcome the resistance, nor are they overcome by the resistance. The muscle length does not change even though it is contracting. Generally, we are strongest in our isometric contractions [ie; standing still with a loaded barbell on our back. Eccentric: An eccentric contraction occurs when the force gene

We Are Closing.... For Now

One of my Core Values that has directed me in life has been to "Do The Right Thing". It is not always easy to know when the right time to do the right thing is; but after much thought and mediation, I have decided that for the everyone's health and safety, we need to hit the "pause" button. CrossFit Fargo is going to temporarily halt group classes on beginning on Thursday, March 19th. You will be able to workout through the 6:30 PM classes on Thursday, which includes YES Kids Classes, and then we will be shutting down.

Don’t Stop Resistance Training IF You Want to Lose Weight!

Now that the weather is getting nice, you may be tempted to forgo your resistance training and head outdoors for some aerobic exercise in the fresh air. But beware: if you give up your resistance training, you will be giving up more than you bargained for. Why resistance train? Resistance training is critical for true fitness. Without it, your muscles will atrophy. If you aren’t building muscle, you are likely losing it. And if you are 20 or older, you are definitely losing muscle, unless you are working hard to build it. Beginning at age 20, we begin naturally losing muscle mass every decade. The old cliché holds true for muscle mass: if you don’t use it, you lose it. Have you ever br

How Daylight Savings Time Can Help You Lose Weight and Get Fit

On this day, most U.S. residents will move their clocks forward one hour, resulting in more daylight at the end of each day. Many people dread this “spring forward” tradition, because it means getting one less hour of sleep. But you can take advantage of the upcoming time change to help you improve your overall fitness and health routine. The effect of daylight The sunlight has a profound impact on our bodies, particularly two hormones that control mood and energy: serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin tends to boost mood and energy, while melatonin tends to make you feel sleepy. Too much of
