The results of numerous studies conducted on MAZURENKO ARM, allowed to draw certain conclusions about the work of muscles and the development of endurance of the athlete. Igor Mazurenko will explain what's what. ()
With the testing of professional athletes with the MAZURENKO ARM (Angle Rush Meter) and observations, there are a sufficient number of experimental facts that allow us to assume that slow muscle fibers (SMF) determines the so-called local endurance (LE), allows to postpone the onset of fatigue and accordingly gives to the armwrestler a long time to pull.
The ideal way to increase the aerobic power of muscles might be to increase the productivity of SMF. How can this be achieved?
In order not to enter into complex aspects of the problem and from a simple article not to do a scientific review, let's look at endurance with the example of two athletes - Devon Larratt (Canada) and Andrey Pushkar (Ukraine) - and try to give practical advice in view of their genetic conditions.
Many of you have seen on video how Devon trains and how he improves his skills. The same can be seen about Andrey. It's not a secret that Devon has exceptional endurance and small, in comparison with Andrey, muscle volumes. Is it all about training, or has genetics left its mark on these two athletes? Is it possible to say that Larratt's training is better than that Pushkar’s?
Give everything in order.
I traveled all over the world and met many people. I saw the training of many world champions, America and Europe, but I never saw such a unique athlete as Larratt. Many in Europe, and in the US too, are trained on the basis that strength is first of all. To answer the question of how to train, which technique is better for you, you need to resort to science and know your organism well. If something hurts, then you feel. If you lift more weights from week to week, then you realize that you become stronger. But how to become hardier many of you do not know, and start doing different nonsense in style: "I'll take a little weight and start doing 50 lifts or presses". In this way, you are ruining the all that you have worked hard for a certain time.
What we need to know and understand.
I do not want to go into biochemistry, we'll start with the simplest...
Stereotypes, in other words, what we used to take at face value. Here are just a few of them that prevent us from taking a step forward:
- Larratt does it, that means it will work for me,
- the most important thing is strength, endurance will become later,
- do not listen to your body, do what you are told,
and much more - that puts us on the path of search, and in fact the biological clock restricts us in time. So do not reinvent the wheel, but follow clear instructions based on scientific rules.
We pull with our hands, we have muscles on our hands, we train them, they grow – we understand that. Nobody thought about what kind of muscles we have. And here it is worth remembering a bit about biochemistry and anatomy. Many of you know that the muscles consist of fast and slow muscle fibers. Naturally, only such a division of the muscle fiber is not full, because fast muscle fibers are divided into types I and II (fast glycolytic muscle fibers – FGMF and fast oxidizing FOMF). Slow muscle fibers have a long working capacity due to a large number of mitochondria involved in the resynthesis of ATP. Fast glycolytic muscle fibers are limited only by strength potential and little endurance. And thanks to the II type, the FOMF, in which there is a relative amount of mitochondria, the armwrestler can lead the fight longer than the athlete with FGMF. Our athletes have limited themselves to increasing the power indicators, thereby building their training programs in the light of the development of the FGMF. This way it is really possible to add very quickly in force indicators. But when you begin to understand that you need to develop endurance, you start doing nonsense, which simply kill you, lead to injuries, loss of strength indicators.
