      160418 The specific warm up 3/4 As the warm up nears the end, the movements and intensity must approximate the beginning of the main workout. Just because these final movements may be lighter and not as challenging as the main ones to come does not mean less concentration is needed. Do not get into
  • 260318 Sport and lifestyle activity-range of motion exercising

    260318 Sport and lifestyle activity-range of motion exercising Your joints and muscles are meant to function within standardized degrees of movement, commonly referred to as the range of motion (ROM). The stronger you are within these ranges, the better protected you will be in preventing injuries from occurring. Therefore when doing your exercise routine keep in
  • 150118 Increased activation of the nervous system

    150118 Increased activation of the nervous system Increases in strength happen because the nervous system learns how to control and fire the muscle fibers more precisely and in more efficient patterns which results in better coordination and improvements in the neuromuscular learning pathways. It stands to reason that the contributions coming from nervous system learning
  • 080118 Physiological factors affecting strength gains

    080118 Physiological factors affecting strength gains The organism rapidly adapts to the load or intensity due in part to ‘an enhanced level of to neural facilitation’… which ‘probably accounts for the rapid and significant strength increase early in’ the ‘training, which is not necessarily associated with an increase in muscle size and cross-sectional area’. These

    010118 Physiological and muscular effects on the expression of strength So you just bought the latest greatest training program and are making phenomenal gains. Congratulations on your progress, but have you considered just why the new training schedule is working so well? Let me explain the process a bit. The factors that affect and modify
