Talk The Torque
Talk the Torque
Phil Mansfield and James Jowsey discuss torque, from a scientific perspective.
I would like to help people get through the apparent misunderstandings of torque and understand it from a scientific point of view.
Why is it important to understand, what is its role for us as coaches? How is it researched?
The scientific definition:
‘A torque acting on a body is created by a force acting a distance away from the axis of rotation.’
Axis of rotation in a gym setting… a bicep curl is the elbow.
The forces are the key component within the torque concept. Without the forces there can’t be a torque.
