Okay, well every expert in the world has advanced the application of weight training to athletes through thousands of peer reviewed studies practically applied to performance at the highest level. There is evidence on top of evidence that you can’t undo. How do you increase strength without load? Simple physics tells you that is impossible. You adapt to the stress you apply. I don’t think you come anywhere near to understanding all the different physiological mechanisms weight training works on. I don’t think you understand even the most basic physiological principles and facts. And yet you want to reinvent the wheel. There is no such thing as a mechanical break. I think you mentioned something in the past about the heel. Yes you need your heel on the ground when overcoming inertia, to use your largest muscles. That’s why you drive through your heel in the weight room when you’re squatting and deadlifting. Then when you run you have more neural drive and muscle mass powering your movement. You frame everything in the context of jogging and lactate. I don’t care what you were doing 30 years ago, I care about the evidence we have from our most recent studies that has built upon everything in the last 30 years. I care about what the experts in the field all around the world are practically applying with success to the most elite athletes. If you talk to anybody with half a clue they’ll laugh you out of the building if you claim that an athlete shouldn’t lift weights. There is even comprehensive evidence now that weight training is essential for endurance athletes, marathon runners. The increased stiffness of tendons provides a mechanical advantage in terms of economy and efficiency, and helps prevent injuries. There is large and growing empirical evidence for that. I’m not talking about a vertical treadmill as an alternative in the rehab stage, I’m talking about actual performance in athletes. If your vertical treadmill had some potential for additive performance increases in healthy athletes then you would have studies on that, you’ve had ten years on here talking about your uni connections. The reason there isn’t is because there is literally no theoretical mechanism for what you claim. If you read a basic undergrad textbook you would know that you’re talking nonsense. I don’t know about your mental state, but I find it hard to believe that you’re not aware of this. If you are aware then you’re extremely dishonest and unethical trying to steer people away from things that are proven to help.
