Thus, force increases as velocity slows and decreases as velocity increases. For example, a one-repetition maximum (1RM) bench press is performed 25 at a slow velocity. Although the individual provides as much force as possible, the overall net velocity is slow due to the high external load. Peak ISOM force occurs at 0 m/s−1 (no movement) that is larger than peak CON force. The force disparity appears related to the number of muscle cross-bridges formed once again. Actin filaments slide rapidly at fast velocities, thereby making it more difficult for myosin to form cross-bridges with actin.

It is not uncommon to see individuals instinctively bend their arms when this exercise becomes more difficult. The moment arm of resistance can be manipulated many ways to alter exercise performance. The human body acts as a system of levers (Fig. 7). A lever is used to overcome a large resistance and is used to enhance speed and ROM. A lever is made up of a fulcrum (pivot point), resistance, and force. The distance from the fulcrum to the concentration of the resistance is the resistance arm whereas as the distance from the fulcrum to the concentration of the force is the force or effort arm.
