Definition accommodating resistance
So instead of benching with high weight and slow velocity (maximal strength), or low weight with fast velocity (speed), you can work in the middle of the graph and accelerate the bar in both the lowering and raising phases of the movement.
Without the bands and chains, you have to decelerate the bar about halfway through the raising phase of a bench press, or the bar will fly out of your hands.
Accommodation is where you live or stay, especially when you are on holiday or when you are staying somewhere for a short amount of time.
In British English, accommodation is an uncountable noun.
In this post, I cover what accommodating resistance is and the benefits of using this form of training.
might be found for every body, calling on his wife to agree with him, that with a little contrivance, every body might be lodged, which she hardly knew how to do, from the consciousness of there being but two spare rooms in the house.
This idea forces you to drive the bar out into full extension without letting up.
The Benefits of Accommodating Resistance Bands and chains train acceleration and rate of force development, which is great for the development of power.
Bands and chains ensure that you drive the bar as hard as you can, generating a high rate of force through the full range of motion (more on this below).
The bottom line: Using bands and chains increases your rate of force development (RFD) and forces you to not let up after you get past your sticking point.
