    3. 3. 3 The science of bioDensity™ How does it work? 1. User is placed in the optimal biomechanical position for maximum engagement of a muscle/group of muscles. 2. Self-imposed loading allows the user to generate maximal loads with minimal risk. 3. Neuro-musculoskeletal stimulus triggers a response in the body to increase density in bone and muscle. ©2011 Performance Health Systems. All Rights Reserved.

    5. 5. Intensity and Adaptive Response Increases in strength are directly related to the intensity of muscle contraction and loading. The measure of intensity for resistance training is percentage of 1RM maximum for a given exercise. Unfortunately the use of the high loads required for 1RM training presents significant risk – particularly in full range isotonic exercise because the body is exposed to high levels of external loading.

    11. 11. bioDensity Compliments other forms of Resistance Training ● Training at different intensity levels within the overall cardiovascular training zone (for example training at 60-70% for longer duration versus 80 – 90% for shorter intervals) – produces distinct benefits and ideally training is done at several intensity levels to produce the most benefit. ● In a similar fashion the proper integration of bioDensity Training as part of the continuum of Resistance Training Intensities (from 1RM to higher repetition sets) compliments other forms of resistance training and produces greater overall benefit to the client.
    12. 12. Isometric Exercise ● Isometric exercise is inherently safe because the user creates the load being imposed on the body and has direct and immediate control of the loading. ● Therefore the user is ‘self-loading’ the muscles, tendons, bones and other connective tissue.
    13. 13. Joint Angle and Isometric Exercise ● It is often assumed that strength gains from isometric exercise, which is usually conducted at a fixed joint angle, have little transfer to other joint angles. ● A detailed review of the literature actually show that the majority of the published studies in this area show just the OPPOSITE and that strength developed at a fixed joint angle does transfer to the entire range of motion. (5 – 12)
    14. 14. Biomechanically Efficient Position ● Each exercise is done at the strongest point within the range of motion to allow maximum force production and loading (peak contraction such as near full extension in the leg press and bench press exercise). ● By performing each exercise in this position extremely high force production is possible resulting in maximum “self loading” of muscles, tendons, joints and bones. ● We know from established research that high levels of loading provide strong stimulus for bone, muscle and connective tissue density.
    15. 15. Real Time Feedback ● Exercise and Trainer see force production as it occurs. ● Red line shows previous peak force production ● Client has realistic goal to shoot for during each session based on their previous performance.
