kins 375 study guide
Periodization: Alarm, Resistance, Exhaustion, Supercompensation are all components of what foundational concept?
General Adaptation syndrome (GAS)
Periodization: Typically an entire training year but may also be a period of many months up to four years (for Olympic athletes)
Periodization: The major emphasis of this period is establishing a base level of conditioning to increase the athlete’s tolerance for more intense training.
Periodization: A periodization model alternative that involves large fluctua-tions in the load and volume assignments for core exercises.
undulating or nonlinear
periodization: Classically the resistance training in this period focuses on the elevation of strength and its translation to power development.
Plyometrics: Evaluating athletes for their sport, sport position and training status is part of
plyometrics: Typical recovery time guideline between plyometric sessions
Plyometrics: combines mechanical and neurophysiological mechanisms and is the basis of plyometric exercise
plyometrics: The #1 objective of a S & C professional in creating rplyometric training programs.
Safety – creating a program that athletes can complete without injury
plyometrics: A program designed for a beginner to plyometrics should be limited to what volume (# of contacts)
Speed/agility: The skills and abilities needed to explosively change movement direction, velocities, or modes.
change of direction
The development of maximal force in minimal time, typically used as an index of explosive strength.
rate of force development
An eccentric–concentric coupling phenomenon in which muscle–tendon complexes are rapidly and forcibly lengthened, or stretch loaded, and immediately shortened in a reactive or elastic manner.
stretch shorten cycle
Sprint speed is determined by an athlete’s
stride length and stride rate
When developing a speed / agility program the professional should always start with:
The axial skeleton and all of the soft tissues with proximal attachments that originate on the axial skeleton – includes hips and shoulders
Typically involve dynamic or isometric muscle actions designed to isolate specific core musculature without the contribution of the lower and upper extremities
This mode of resistance training can cause greater activation of stabilizer muscles and offer the ideal combination of specificity and instability.
This enables the athlete to maintain proper body alignment during an exercise, which in turn places an appropriate stress on muscles and joints.
stable body position
maximizes the value of an exercise and improves or maintains flexibility.
