Commentary and insight on athletic strength from Mike Gittleson

2-for-2 Method

Some trainers, coaches and athletes use what is called the 2-for-2 Method for increasing training load. The rule is if the trainee can perform two or more repetitions over one’s ‘repetition goal’ in the last set of an exercise, for two consecutive workouts, the weight is added for that particular exercise the next training session.

Knee Extension Angles

When performing leg extensions knee angles affect performance. As the angle changes different neural and mechanical outputs of the heads of the quadriceps affect force and power output.

Strength coaches, athletic trainers and physical therapists utilize ranges of motion to try to isolate various muscle bellies for the purpose of rehab. The ‘short arc’ in knee rehabilitation is used to illicit gains and try to isolate the vastus medialis oblique and vastus lateralis, the principle muscles that stabilize the patella during dynamic knee extension.

Normal range of motion of the knee on a leg extension machine is considered to be 0 degrees when there is a  completely straight knee joint and 135 degrees when the knee is fully bent.

Select the 0-30 degrees of movement using the range limiter on the Pendulum Leg Extension to target the quadriceps just above the knee to keep the knee strong.

Pendulum Leg Extension

Twenty One Reps

The 21 repetition routine is a great addition to a strength training program to stimulate growth. The athlete takes an exercise that is normally done and progresses through 7 reps of three different ranges of motion for a total of 21 repetitions. This method is to challenge themselves, stimulate and promote progress.

An Example of a 21 Rep Routine doing a Pulldown on the Pendulum Lat Combo Pull:

Start by choosing an exercise that one would normally do and perform 7 full repetitions from fully extended to fully contracted.

7 Reps – Full Repetitions

Once completed, with the same weight and with no rest, immediately begin executing 7 partial repetitions starting from halfway down to full contraction and then back to halfway.

7 Reps – Halfway Down to Full Contraction

After completion of the 7 reps from halfway down to full contraction and back to halfway up extend the arms to the start position. Immediately, from the fully extended starting position return to halfway down 7 times. Finishing the seventh rep from the halfway position (which will also be the 21st of the total number of reps), return the weight as slowly as possible to the starting position to complete the 21 Rep Routine.

7 Reps – Start Position to Halfway Down

21 reps can be done with almost any exercise and the order in which you perform the 7 full movements or select the order of the 7 partial movements is up to the coach, lifter or dictated by the type of exercise you choose.

A great way to Get Strong.
