Physical Qualities 4: Strength and Warming Up

Physical Qualities 4: Strength

The first step toward enhanced physical fitness at any age is to establish a systematic, safe, and enjoyable conditioning program that addresses the following four factors: stamina, flexibility, speed, and strength. In this program viewers learn the importance of strength training in promoting peak athletic performance and ensuring general physical health. Physical strength - the ability to overcome resistance - requires healthy bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, as well as highly tuned circulatory, respiratory, and nervous systems. Training programs designed to enhance overall physical strength must take into account the varied demands made on muscles involved in either concentric, eccentric, or isometric contractions. Student athletes demonstrate a host of training activities that focus on developing strength in the three major areas of the body (the upper body, lower body, and the torso), including body weight exercises, successive jumping, weight lifting, and medicine ball throwing. Viewers are shown several strength measuring tests, including the bent arm bar test, the horizontal jump, and the 30-second abdominal test. Viewers learn the value of a structured training program that employs the principle of gradual, progressive resistance, as well as the importance of a disciplined warm-up routine that increases flexibility and prepares muscle groups and body systems for the rigors of intense exercise and athletic competition. 00/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
