Building strength, balance, power and grace from within
Specificity: Training should be similar to event. (duration, type): Sprinters should sprint!
Overload: Work harder than the body is accustomed to.
Progression: Gradually increase difficulty or volume of exercise/activity.
Adaptation: Doing the same thing over & over will create adaptation. Increase intensity or volume to progress.
Use/Disuse: Deconditioning begins within 2-3 days of stopping activity.
Individuality: Each person responds to exercise, training, skill acquisition in a unique way.
Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS): As a result of training, muscle soreness may occur 48-72 hours following activity.
Ideal training occurs when you overload!:
Undertrain=underperform/slow, negligable improvements
Overreach=improve performance but body sends indicators of "overdoing" such as increased heart rate, irritability, aches and pains etc. Back down slightly by increasing rest, decreasing volume and intensity.
Overtrain=underperform (injuries, muscle breakdown)-May be difficult to bounce back within competitive season.
