physics of body building!



Many people might not think it but the meat-heads who body build conduct physics related actions everyday when they go to the gym. The weights they lift are objects that apply a force to the muscles that are targeted in different exercises. Newton's second law, net force= mass x acceleration (F=ma) shows that force is equal to the mass times the acceleration. So the weights that people lift when they work out have a mass that is accelerated by gravity to produce the force overcome by muscle movement. Building muscle mass can be attributed to Newtonian laws of Physics!
