Some Principles of Applied Exercise that will be considered when designing your Strength & Conditioning Program

OVERLOAD

S.A.I.D. Principle – Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands (Muscle ONLY adapts to required demand)

Use progressive resistance (increase resistance and increase progress)

CHANGE your stress (weight, sets, reps, rest periods, order of exercises, etc.)

“As adaptation to stress occurs, greater amounts of stress must be applied for continued adaptation”

NEUTRAL SPINE

When performing the majority of weight training movements, you should try to maintain a ‘neutral’ spinal position. This can most easily be accomplished by keeping your chin and chest up high and sticking your butt out slightly. This allows you to maintain a body position where you have a natural curve in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae sections of your spine.

ISOLATION

  • Focus on the muscle you are targeting
  • Quality of contraction
  • Mind-muscle connection (feel the muscle working)
  • Range of Motion:  For a joint, a muscle group, or for an exercise.

Remember… “Stretch & Squeeze”

 INTENSITY

Train to the point of momentary muscular failure on the last set of every exercise in the target rep range If you can reach the desired number of reps on your last set, you need to increase weight on your next workout. (Intensity required will vary based on YOUR specific fitness level)

Intensity can also be defined in terms of a percentage of your one-rep maximum (%1RM), and your needs will vary depending on your specific fitness goals, body-shape goals, and performance goals.
