Strength is not just a bio-motor quality as it is made out to be. It is also about the neural circuit. The more you are trained to respond to certain signals the better you set the tone for whole circuit to respond leading to more strength. And this reflects in your anatomy when you achieve it.

Unlike electricity, the electrical signals in our body doesn’t work on a constant threshold. Instead there are multiple threshold points in any movement (diff muscle sizes). Example: an electric wire plugged into multiple plug-ins via different velocity stabilizers before the final output.

All my research work is about diving deep into this circuitry system and strengthen the circuits responsible for performance depending on the sport they play. Or finding the breakage/leak and repair it.

Research Articles: I am not an academician and neither I have the time, resources, or

researchfunding to follow all protocols of a research paper. However that does not stop me from conducting studies that in my opinion can make a difference in one’s health and performance. My researches start from adapted practices however I bring a new perspective, always, by diving deep into science. Therefore my research work is not just a health blog or opinion or one time experience (100’s of athletes as case studies) and instead it is a research in real time environments. It seems unending while I continue to dive deep.

Published Research Article:

Background: The below write-up, in my opinion is the first in the world investigating role of footwear in cricketing injuries. In my opinion, it has never been explored before even though we have had a history of cricketers shortening their career owing to hamstring or lower back injuries.

Diving deep into the complexities of cricket spikes with regard to ground contact time and how it could be a factor in hamstring or lower back injuries in cricketers: https://umeshchhikara.com/2020/03/31/cricket-spikes-injuries/

Once you have studied the role of spikes…the below mentioned published research article will reason out why weight training during a season may lure injuries.

b) How heavy weight training can lead to injury during a CRICKET season?

This explains the science behind above published article with respect to the game of cricket. Why they should not indulge in heavy lifting during the season?
