img_20200914_114955Strength 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 and instead there are multiple threshold points in any movement (diff muscle sizes). Example: an electric wire travels into multiple plug-ins, via different velocity stabilizers before the final output.

My researches break the stereo-type and look deeper into these circuits. The result is the data I rely as it is closest to reality and therefore, is more suitable than any written research.

Research Articles: I am not an academician and neither I have the time, resources, orresearch funding to follow all protocols of a research paper. However that does not stop me from conducting researches 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 do not mistake my research work with a health blog or opinion or one time experience (100’s of athletes as case studies) unless you like to challenge any of my work with a science reasoning. I would love to learn more from you if you like to add. As long as you quote science…I am here to defend myself or learn from you and move on.

Some of you may like to see the data. Yes, all my studies are result based (recorded) across the sports, age groups, cultures, and assignments. And those of you who like to read only technical language; be rest assured, even though I use a layman’s language to make this reach to the right audience, but you will find a science reasoning in everything that I have said through my articles. Feel free to challenge….it will be good to learn if I have missed out on anything.

Published Research Article:

This is special. This is special because I had written this exclusively for cricket giving them reasoning of how probably my hypothesis is given the fact that cricketers have to wear spikes on field. Somehow, it got missed!

Cricket world: Read my article on spikes first and then read the below published article. You will be able to relate with it immediately as even a blind can see how it directly related to cricket. Happy to discuss or argue on any open platform if somebody bags to disagree:

Now read the published article:

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION, HEALTH & SPORTS SCIENCES

Methodology: I study a subject in depth before drawing my conclusions. I then define broad markers and tick every box by conducting a research on myself. Once this is done….I follow it up in a team environment and produce results. You may find exceptions to everything in the world but science caters to the masses. Therefore science is the backbone of all my researches.

Subjects researched: Nutrition, Injuries, Strength, and Sports fitness (movement science)

Pick up your favorite subject and read on……

1) Nutrition plays a very important contribution in energy systems and therefore, it is important in sports
