Card Set Information
NASM CHAPTER ONE
state of lost physical fitness
neural input to the central nervous system from mechanoreceptors that sense position and limb movement.
Proprioceptively enriched environment:
unstable (but controlled) environment where exercises are performed that causes the body to use its internal balance and stabilization mechanisms.
Phase of training:
smaller divisons of training progressions thta fall within the three builiding blocks.
The ability of the bodys nerves to effectively send messeges to the bodys muscles
rate of force production:
how quickly a muscle can generate force
stabilization endurance training:
goals- improve muscular endurance, enhance joint stability, increase flexibilty
training- corrective flexibility, low loads, high reps, training in unstable yet controllable environments.
Strength Endurance Training
enhance stabilization strength and endurance while increasing prime mover strength.
Hypertrophy- increase muscle size. (superset- one stable one not)
maximal strength- works towards the goal of increasing maximal prime mover strength.
Power - enhances prime mover strength while also improving the rate of force production (how quickly a muscle can generate force.)
