Monitoring Fatigue from A to Z

February 2, 2015

Video

All stressors affect training, Dr. Bryan Mann says in this lecture from Coaches Conference 2015. No matter the source of the stress - strength training, conditioning, classes, relationship or family - stress is systemic within the body. As a result, it is critical to monitor the stress load on your athletes to ensure maximal results, and it's easy to do - all you need is a pencil and paper.

Multi-Joint Training versus Isolated Training for Core Development

June 1, 2017

Article

Ground-based free weight lifts, especially the explosive Olympic-style lifts, are highly recommended for athletic conditioning for the core muscles. They can provide a moderately unstable stimulus to augment activation of the core and limb muscles, while still providing maximal or near maximal strength, velocity, and power output.

Strength Training and Endurance Athletes

November 1, 2014

Article Members Only

High-intensity strength training paired with explosive, high-velocity movements is suggested to enhance endurance performance. It is recommended that a practical approach be taken when implementing this model of strength training, which would involve a thorough preparatory period.

Training Cessation as a Method of Tapering for Strength

May 1, 2017

Article

The aim of this study was to determine the effects of two different durations of training cessation on upper and lower body maximal strength performance, and to investigate the mechanisms underlying performance changes following short-term training cessation.

Force-Velocity-Power Profile Characteristics

June 10, 2022

Article

This excerpt from NSCA’s Essentials of Sport Science briefly explains the force-velocity-power profile and how it can give strength and conditioning coaches a more holistic view of athletes.

Maximize Motor Unit Recruitment - Get Bigger, Leaner, and Stronger

October 30, 2013

Video

In this video from the NSCA's 2013 Personal Trainer Conference, Chad Waterbury discusses how to maximize motor unit recruitment. Chad discusses three ways to recruit more motor units - lift heavy, accelerate sub-maximal loads, and train with high-tension movements.

Oxygen Uptake and the Aerobic and Anaerobic Contributions to Exercise

June 1, 2017

Video

Oxygen uptake (or consumption) is a measure of a person’s ability to take in oxygen and deliver it to the working tissues, and the ability of working tissues to use oxygen. During low-intensity exercise with a constant power output, oxygen uptake increases for the first few minutes until a steady state of uptake is reached.
