FQD 10.31.2010 [Sir Isaac Newton]

Fitness Question of the Day [10/31/2010]

Question:
You quoted Newton the other day so do you often think of workouts in terms of science? William Blase, Rockville, MD

[10/27/2010]
The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy by Sir Isaac Newton

Axioms of Motion – Law 1: 
Every body preserves in its state of rest or of uniform motion unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed thereon.

For our purposes: A body in motion stays in motion. Let’s get moving!

Answer:
Excellent question! 

Yes, I do. Aside from the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of movement and exercise, there exists pure science. One of my favorite sportsmen of all time –Brooks Johnson, USA Track & Field– coaches and lectures in scientific terms and I love it!

Sir Isaac Newton’s Law 1, simplified, that governs motion:

INERTIA
Body at rest tends to stay at rest / Body in motion tends to stay in motion: unless acted upon by an outside and superior force.

P = mv  [momentum = mass x velocity, where ‘m’ represents “center” or inertial mass]
AND
F = ma  [force = mass x acceleration] 

And that’s how it’s done!™ – ADUB©
