Because I want to be big and strong like Seth, I decided to go to the weight room today. Obviously I needed to write a blog post on it.
In weight lifting, gravity is a huge factor. Without the 9.81 m/s^2 acceleration downward due to gravity, we wouldn't have any weight to lift. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm not a jacked guy, so I start with lighter weights an guess what, gravity was my biggest enemy. Next came some cardio. I ended up realizing that the impacts of my foot hitting the treadmill was going up my legs, as well as the fact that the treadmill was exerting a force equal to my weight, in the opposite direction.
Why does physics follow me every where?
