Thermodynamics and Physics
Just a passing thought. In thermodynamics, a compressed body becomes cold, and an expanded body becomes hot. This is why an air conditioner uses a compressor.
Take a rubber band at room temperature and hold it against your forehead. Feel it’s temperature. Next take that rubber band and quickly stretch it out as far as possible and feel it on your forehead. It should be warmer.
Now hold it stretched for 1 minute until it reaches room temp. feel it to make sure. Now let it contract back to a relaxed state and feel it again quickly. It should be cold. You actually just added heat to the room by heating the rubber, letting the heat escape into the room, and then you contracted it. Now you just wait for it to get back to room temp so you can repeat the process. Ideally, you would use two different rooms, one for the expansion process, and one for the contraction process. That’s why your AC compressor is outside, but the cold air is pumped inside.
Can we take advantage of this principle? Warm up as much as possible in the flaccid state WITHOUT stretching. Then when you start your stretching, you will actually be adding heat above the max of your warmup. Is it possible to get your tunica hotter through repetition in this way?
Also, could it be that repetitions of stretches allowing a contraction in between could do more than an ADS?
I’m thinking out loud here guys. I may be an idiot.
On another front, what about magnitzing metal? If you set a magnet on a peice of metal for a year, the metal doesn’t become magnetized. But if you rub the magnet on the same peice of metal in a specific way, the metal becomes magnetized rather quickly. Another stab against ADS?
