Resistance Training Concepts

  1. A term used to describe how the body responds and adapts to stress
    General Adaptation Syndrome
  2. The initial reaction to a stressor
    Alarm reaction
  3. Pain or discomfort often felt 24 to 72 hours after intense exercise or unaccustomed physical activity
    Delayed-onset muscle soreness
  4. The body increases its functional capacity to adapt to the stressor
    Resistance Development
  5. prolonged stress of stress that is intolerable and will produce exhaustion or distress to the system
  6. Division of a training program into smaller, progressive stages
  7. Principle that states the body will adapt to the specific demands that are place on it
    Principle of Specificity or Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands (SAID Principle)
  8. Refers to the weight and movements places on the body
    Mechanical Specificity
  9. Refers to the speed of cantraction and exercise selection
    Neuromuscular Specificity
  10. Refers to the energy demand place on the body
    Metabolic Specificity
  11. The ability to produce and maintain force production for prolonged periods of time
    muscular endurance
  12. Enlargement of skeletal muscle fibers in response to overcoming force from high volumes of tension
    Muscular Hypertrophy
  13. The ability of the neuromuscular system to produce internal tension to overcome an external load
  14. Ability of the neuromuscular system to produce the greatest force in the shortest time
  15. Alternating body parts trained from set to set, starting from the upper extremity and moving to the lower extremity
    vertical loading
  16. Performing all sets of an exercise of body part before moving on to the next exercise or body part
    horizontal loading
  17. performing one set of each exercise
  18. performing a multiple number of sets for each exercise
  19. increasing (or decreasing) weight with each set
  20. performing two exercises in rapid succession with minimal rest
  21. performing a set to failure then removing a small percentage of the load and continuing with the set
  22. performing a series of exercises one after the other with minimal rest
    circuit training
  23. a variation of circuit training that uses different exercises (upper and lower body) for each set through the circuit
    peripheral heart action
  24. A routine that trains different body parts on different days
    split routine
