This method is a bit different. It's been around in its current form for a few decades (I think that's right.)
It involves lifting very heavy weights through a small range of motion and holding in for at least 5 seconds.
So for example, I can do a full range leg press with about 360 LBS for 8-12 reps.
In a static contraction rep I push 930 LBS through about 2-3 inches of motion (without locking out) and hold the weight in place as long as I can. (If you can hold it for more than 10 seconds you go up on the weight.) There are a couple of e-books on the routine.
I can certainly see a difference no only in the increasing weights on the partial reps, but on the normal full range rep exercises as well.
For example I could do 110 LBS for 8-12 reps on a regular bench press before I started SCT.
I did the SCT routine through four sequences of the 10 exercises prescribed and then tested the full range exercise again (without doing the full range exercise during that month long period.)
Now I can do 140 LBS for 8-12 reps.
I was just wondering if anyone else has tried this.
I'm an engineer by training so I'm tracking my progress. I'll report back again (if anybody's interested.)
