Abstract

This study introduced a new concept in the generation of strength curve profiles in resistance training equipment. Rather than using the conventional spiral off centered cam commonly used in current resistance training equipment, this study focuses on using DC motor to be controlled by a micro controller to generate the strength curve as well as the resistance in resistance training equipment. The concept of this study will be demonstrated in a barbell curl exercise, although the concept can also be applied to other forms of resistance training equipment. With this study, a new and flexible alternative in the generation of strength curve profiles in resistance training equipment can be offered.
