The term “accommodating resistance” is also commonly used when discussing chain-resistance training.
As the athlete moves up towards the end position of an exercise, they are also typically moving up the ascending strength curve (Figure 2).
As they move up, the weight gets heavier, and vice versa.
The design was unique in the fact that it was the middle portion of the lift in which the lifters had identical relative tension, and the VRT group had greater tension at the top of the movement than the control group.
The participants, who were NCAA basketball players, added the band workouts once per week to their normal routines.
Perhaps the most important reason to use VRT is to improve the rate of power development.
