Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

Muscular Fitness is an individual’s combination of:

Muscular Strength

Muscular Endurance

Flexibility


Muscular strength

Muscular Strength:

The maximum force that can be generated by a specific muscle or muscle group one time.


Muscular endurance

Muscular Endurance:

The ability of a muscle group to execute repeated contractions (perform work) over a sufficient time period to cause muscular fatigue.


Power

Power

The ability to do strength performance with speed.


Benefits of muscular fitness

Ability to do more strenuous work

Less susceptible to muscular fatigue

Improved appearance

Ability to do more work over a longer period of time

Less injury prone

Athletic performance

Benefits of Muscular Fitness


What are some myths about strength training

Fitness for Life

What are some myths about strength training?


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

  • Myth: strength training makes females look more masculine

  • Fact: female hormones prevent overdevelopment


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

  • Myth: strength training makes you “muscle bound”

  • Fact: proper training, including flexibility exercises, improves functioning


Muscle fiber types

FAST TWITCH

Fast Contraction

High Power

Low Endurance

Less Oxygen Dependant

SLOW TWITCH

Slow Contraction

Low Power

High Endurance

Uses Oxygen

MUSCLE FIBER TYPES


Are these athletes likely to have mostly fast twitch or slow twitch muscle fibers

Are these athletes likely to have mostly fast twitch or slow twitch muscle fibers?


Muscle

Muscle

  • Striated Muscle is voluntary skeletal muscle that reaps the benefits of strength training.

  • Striated muscles will atrophy (waste away) when not used and hypertrophy (get larger) when used.


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

MUSCLE ACTION

CONCENTRIC - MUSCLE SHORTENS (force is greater than resistance)

ISOMETRIC - MUSCLE LENGTH DOES NOT CHANGE (force = resistance)

ECCENTRIC - MUSCLE LENGTHENS (force is less than resistance)


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

WHAT IS PROPER TECHNIQUE?

WARM-UP

Controlled Smooth Movements

SPOTTER

FULL RANGE OF MOTION

Proper Amount of WEIGHT

Adjust machine to fit


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

WHY IS TECHNIQUE IMPORTANT?

GET DESIRED RESULTS

AND

AVOID INJURIES


Why warm up

WHY WARM-UP?

  • Muscles can contract faster and more forcefully

  • ligaments and tendons are more pliable (less prone to injury)

  • less stress on the heart

  • nerve impulses move faster

  • psychological readiness


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

OVERLOAD PRINCIPLE

The body will respond by getting stronger when increased demands are placed upon it.


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSION

Start out slowly with lighter weights and easier workouts.

Increase the weights and intensity as the body gets stronger.


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

PRINCIPLE OF SPECIFICITY

The body adapts “specifically” to the demands placed upon it.

Angle

Force

Speed


Terms

Terms

  • Strength Training

    • Use of resistance methods used to increase one’s ability to exert or resist force.

  • Free Weights

    • An object that is not connected to a machine that is used for physical conditioning and competitive lifting

  • One Repetition Maximum

    • The load one can perform only one repetition


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

HOW MUCH WEIGHT?

SETS?

REPETITIONS?


Weight sets and reps

Weight, Sets and Reps

  • The total amount of weight lifted is known as the LOAD.

  • A SET is the number of repetitions performed consecutively without resting.

  • The number of times an exercise is repeated is know as the REPETITION(S). Or (Reps)

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS?

There are many fitness training programs available. This is very generic, but it is a start for a beginner.

MUSCULAR ENDURANCE AND TONING

2-3 SETS OF 10-15 REPS

STRENGTH AND SIZE

3 SETS OF 6-8 REPS


Fitness training programs

Fitness Training Programs

  • Circuit Training

    • A variation of interval training that uses weights, timed work, and rest periods.

      • Advantages

        • Easy to work every muscle in your body

        • Can be adapted for any size workout area

        • Does not require expensive gym equipment

        • Can be customized for specificity; easy to adapt to your sport.


Fitness training programs cont

Fitness Training Programs Cont…

  • Cross Training

    • Training that emphasizes two or more of the components of health-related fitness.

      • Example

        • Runners build muscles in their legs by running and improver cardiovascular strength

        • In order for a runner to increase overall body strength, he/she need to lift weights


Fitness training programs cont1

Fitness Training Programs Cont…

  • Interval Training

    • An exercise program that involves a series of exercises interspersed with rest periods.

      • Example – Continuous exercise with the rest being a walk

        • Sprint 200m

        • Walk back to starting point

        • Sprint 400m

        • Walk back to starting point

      • Fartlek


Fitness training programs cont2

Fitness Training Programs Cont…

  • Pyramid Training

    • A method of using progressively heavier or lighter loads within a single training session.

      • Example

        • Set 1 - light weight/high reps

        • Set 2 – a little more weight/ medium reps

        • Set 3 – heavy weight/few reps

        • Set 4 – lighter weight/more reps

        • Set 5 – light weight/high reps


Negative exercises

Negative Exercises

  • A form of exercise in which the muscle lengthens rather than shortens during muscular tension.

  • Eccentric Exercise

  • Best way to improve strength

  • Usually causes increased muscular soreness!


What are plyometric exercises

What are plyometric exercises?


Muscular fitness is an individual s combination of

  • a quick stretch followed by a strong muscle contraction
