Healthy people 2010 objective and strength training l.jpg
Healthy People 2010 Objective and Strength Training

  • Increase to 30% the proportion of adults who perform physical activities that enhance and maintain muscular strength and endurance on > 2 days per week;

  • Also recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine.




Factors affecting muscular force generation l.jpg
Factors Affecting Muscular Force Generation

  • Muscle Architecture

  • Muscle Mechanics

  • Length-Tension Relationship

  • Muscle Fiber Types

  • Force-Velocity Relationship

  • Electromechanical Delay


Muscle architecture l.jpg
Muscle Architecture

  • Long axis of muscle determines arrangement of muscle fibers

  • Reflects muscle force and power

  • Two basic types

    • Fusiform: spindle shaped

    • Pennate: fan-shaped



Pennation effects on force and fiber packing l.jpg
Pennation Effects on Force and Fiber Packing

  • Pennation allows for packing a more fibers into a smaller cross-sectional area than parallel fibers.

  •  = surface pennation angle


Fusiform fiber arrangement l.jpg
Fusiform Fiber Arrangement

Fa = force of contraction of muscle fiber parallel to long axis of muscle

SFa = sum of all muscle fiber contractions parallel to long axis of muscle

Fa


Pennate fiber arrangement l.jpg
Pennate Fiber Arrangement

Fa = force of contraction of muscle fiber parallel to long axis of muscle

Fm = force of contraction of muscle fiber

 = pennation angle

Fa = (cos )(Fm)

SFa = sum of all muscle fiber contractions parallel to long axis of muscle

Fa

Fm


Muscle mechanics l.jpg
Muscle Mechanics

  • Active Force through contractile elements: actin and myosin mechanism;

  • Passive Force through elastic elements:

    • Series elastic elements (tendons) smooth out force of contraction and reduce effects of external forces from overloads

    • Parallel elastic elements (fascia) absorb energy input externally if muscle is stretched beyond normal "resting" length.


Muscle mechanics15 l.jpg

The range of motion and amount of force a muscle can generate is largely determined by the arrangement of the muscle fibers

Muscle Mechanics

PE = Parallel elastic component

SE = Series elastic component

CE = Contractile element

  • Fibers in series

    • Force production modest, but large range of shortening.

  • Fibers in parallel

    • Force production high, but minimal range of shortening.


Length tension relationship l.jpg
Length-Tension Relationship generate is largely determined by the arrangement of the muscle fibers

  • Force generation optimized when muscle is slightly stretched.

  • Due to contribution of elastic components of muscle (primarily the SEC)

Force and types of muscle contractions l.jpg
Force and Types of Muscle Contractions Types

Concentric

Eccentric

Isometric


Isotonic contractions l.jpg
Isotonic Contractions Types

  • Muscle changes length (changing angle of joint) and moves a load.

  • Two types of isotonic contractions

    • Concentric: Muscle shortens as it contracts

    • Eccentric: Muscle lengthens as it contracts


Isometric contractions l.jpg
Isometric Contractions Types

  • Tension increases without changes in length

  • Occurs if the load is greater than the tension the muscle is able to develop


Force velocity relationship l.jpg
Force-Velocity Relationship Types

  • Maximal force developed by muscle is governed by its shortening or lengthening velocity - holds true for all muscle types


Force velocity relationships l.jpg
Force Velocity Relationships Types

  • Concentric: CON

    Ability to develop force is greater at slower contraction velocities - allows greater time for cross-bridges to generate tension


Force velocity relationship28 l.jpg
Force-Velocity Relationship Types

  • Eccentric: ECC

    Greater force with increasing velocity/ acceleration, due to lower metabolic cost, greater mechanical efficiency and greater contribution from series elastic components.



Electromechanical delay l.jpg
Electromechanical Delay Types

  • Time between arrival of neural stimulus and tension development by muscle

  • Varies among muscles (20-100 msec)

  • Short EMDs produced by muscles with high percentage of FT fibers

  • Not affected by muscle length, contraction type, contraction velocity, or fatigue

    • Muscle fiber type conversion?

  • Neural Adaptations

    •  recruitment of motor units;

    •  in firing rate of motor neurons;

    • Improved synchronization in motor neuron firing;

    • Counteraction of autogenic inhibition to allow greater force production.


Skeletal muscle adaptations l.jpg
Skeletal Muscle Adaptations Types

  • Muscle Fiber Type Conversion

  • Muscular Strength


Muscle fiber hypertrophy l.jpg
Muscle Fiber Hypertrophy Types

  • Increase in numbers of myofibrils and actin and myosin filaments

    • Allows more cross-bridges.

  • Increases in muscle protein synthesis during post-exercise period.

  • Testosterone plays a role in promoting muscle growth.

  • High intensity training may promote greater fiber hypertrophy than low intensity training.


Muscle fiber hyperplasia l.jpg
Muscle Fiber Hyperplasia Types

  • Muscle fibers may split in half with intense weight training.

  • Each half may then increases to size of parent fiber.

  • Satellite cells may also be involved in skeletal muscle fiber generation.

  • Clearly shown in animal models, but in only a few human studies.


Process of strength gains l.jpg

Process of Strength Gains


Mechanisms of strength training adaptations l.jpg
Mechanisms of Strength Training Adaptations Types

  • Mechanical stimuli

    • CON-only training equally effective as ECC, despite mechanical advantage of ECC (greater forces, muscle damage, etc)

  • Metabolic Stimuli

    • Greater metabolic costs with CON

    • Build-up of metabolic by-products may enhance release of anabolic hormones and lead to greater motor unit activation.


Muscular power l.jpg
Muscular Power Types

  • Power = Work/Time =

    • (Force X Distance)/Time =

    • Force X Velocity

  • Maximal power occurs at:

    • ~ 1/3 max velocity

    • ~ 1/3 max concentric force

  • Affected by muscular strength and movement speed;

  • Main determinant of performance for throwing, jumping, changing direction, and striking activities.


Force power relationship l.jpg
Force-Power Relationship Types

  • Power generated is greater in muscle with a high % of fast-twitch fibers at any given velocity of movement;

  • Peak power increases with velocity up to movement speeds of 200-300º•sec-1

    • Force decreases with increasing movement speed beyond this velocity

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation l.jpg
Neuromuscular TypesElectrical Stimulation

  • Characterized by low volt stimulation targeted to stimulate motor nerves to cause a muscle contraction.

    • Brain sends a special signal via a nerve impulse to muscle "motor point" causing muscle to contract and exercise just as if it had received a signal from the brain.

  • TENS is designed to stimulate sensing nerve endings to help decrease pain.

Optimal strength gains l.jpg
Optimal Strength Gains Types

  • Maximal strength gains elicited with training intensity of 85% of 1RM (2 - 5 reps), 2 d/wk, with 8 sets per muscle group.

    • Peterson MD et al. J Strength Cond Res. 2004 May;18(2):377-382.


Optimal power gains l.jpg
Optimal Power Gains Types

  • Optimal load for maximal power gains depends on nature of exercise (single versus multiple joint exercises) and experience of athlete:

    • Untrained load 30-45% of 1RM

    • Trained load 40 - 70% of 1 RM

  • Explosive training best

  • Periodization important

Eccentric loading l.jpg
Eccentric Loading Types

  • Supra maximal loading to optimize force production

    • E.g. loads set at 100, 130 and 150% of 1RM

  • May be useful for recruiting high threshold motor units.


Safety of strength training l.jpg
Safety of Strength Training Types

  • Relative Safety of Weightlifting and Weight Training. Hamill 1994.

    • Injury rates were 0.0012 per 100 hours of participation compared to 0.03 for basketball, 0.1 for football, and 0.03 for all other athletics.

  • Regular participation in broad-based training that includes strength training can significantly lower sports-related injury rates and time for rehab of adolescents. Faifenbaum 2004.
