general adaptation syndrome:
the kinetic chain's ability to adapt to stresses placed on it (body seeks homeostasis/physiological balance)
selye three stages of response to stress:
- alarm reaction- initial reaction to stressor
- resistance development- body increases its functional capacity to adapt to the stressor
- exhaustion- prolonged intolerable stressor produces fatigue and leads to a breakdown in the system or injury.
division of a training program into smaller, progressive stages
principle of specificity or specific adaptation to imposed demands (SAID)
body will adapt to the specific demands that are placed on it
the weight and movements placed on the body
speed of contraction and excercise selection
energy demand placed on the body
- ability of the neuromuscular system to produce internal tension to overcome external force
- a)stabilization -muscular endurance/stability
- b)strength- strength endurance/hypertrophy/max strength
- c)power- power
ability of the boyd to produce low levels of force and maintain them for extended periods
ability of the body to maintain postureal equilibrium and support joints during movement.
ability of the body to repeatedly produce high levels of force for prolonged periods.
enlargment of the skeletal muscle fiberss in response to overcoming force from high volumes of tension
max force that a muscle can produce in a single, voluntary effort, regardless of velocity
ability of the neuromuscular system to produce the greatest force in the shortest time
peripheral heart action
a variation of circuit training that uses diff excercies (upper and lower body) for each set through the circuit
performing excercises on the OPT model template one after the other, in a vertical manner down the template
performing all sets of an exercise (or body part) before moving on to the next excercise (or body part)
