FQD 10.31.2010 [Sir Isaac Newton]

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

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

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!

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:

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]
F = ma  [force = mass x acceleration] 

And that’s how it’s done!™ – ADUB©
