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. As cross-bridge cycling rate increases, less cross-bridges remain intact at any given time. However, cross-bridge formation is enhanced at slow velocities and during ISOM actions where the cross-bridge cycling rate is low.

The torque generated differed because the moment arm length changed. A RT example is the side lateral raise. If the athlete selects 20-lb dumbbells to perform this exercise, one can see that the exercise is more difficult or easy by repositioning the arms. With the elbows extended, the exercise is more difficult than if the athlete flexes the elbows. If we assume muscle force to be similar in both cases, less torque is generated to lift the dumbbells with the elbows flexed because the resistance arm is smaller.

Numerous examples of friction can be seen in athletics and its importance is great. Static friction is critical for nearly all RT exercises. For the bench press, static friction between the lifter’s back and bench, feet and floor, and hands and bar are important for stability and lifting performance. For the dead lift, static friction between the lifter’s feet and floor and hands and bar are important for lifting performance. Greater friction equals better performance or weight lifted. This is why powerlifters and weightlifters use chalk on their hands and on their backs (powerlifters) as chalk increases the coefficient of static friction.
