Explain safe techniques to enhance strength of major muscle groups.
Explanation should include
- the relationship between strength and injury prevention
- techniques to increase strength, power, and endurance, using a variety of equipment and reflecting age, sport/activity, gender, and other individual considerations.
- Why are proper lifting and spotting techniques important in injury prevention?
- What are the differences between isometric, isotonic, and isokinetic strengthening exercises? How could each be used in an injury prevention program?
- What types of equipment are used to enhance strength?
- How can strength be enhanced in situations with little or no traditional equipment?
- How do age, sport/activity, gender, and other individual considerations factor in the development of a strength training program?
- What is the SAID principle? How does it apply to strength training and injury prevention?
- What is the difference between agonist and antagonist?
- What is the difference between concentric and eccentric contractions?
