Corrective Exercise Solutions to Common Hip and Shoulder Dysfunction

On Target Publications - These movement impairments result in repetitive and cumulative microtraumas that affect individuals in their occupations and everyday activities, as well as in their attempts to be more physically active. Dysfunctions of the movement system are at the core of most cases of musculoskeletal injury, including but not limited to degenerative joint conditions, impingement syndromes and chronic myofascial and joint pain.

. This valuable resource presents: the three reasons why clients develop faulty movement patterns, so the fitness professional or clinician can understand and explain the mechanisms behind their clients' hip and shoulder dysfunctions. Full of color photographs illustrating precise assessments, corrective strategies and functional progressions, author Evan Osar demonstrates how the fitness professional or clinician can apply the three principles of human movement--respiration, centration and integration--to improve common movement dysfunctions of the hip and shoulder.

Hypertrophy: Muscle fiber growth caused by mechanical tension

Strength and Conditioning Research Limited - The first section provides a radical new explanation for the mechanisms of hypertrophy that rests firmly upon the basic and most fundamental principles of muscle physiology. Other topics covered include what happens when we take breaks from training, periodization, and the interference effect of concurrent aerobic exercise.

The final section addresses the fundamental principles of exercise selection for muscle growth, which allows strength training programs to be designed in such a way as to maximize growth of individual muscles. Currently, metabolic stress, many researchers believe that muscle growth is caused by three mechanisms mechanical tension, and muscle damage.

Hypertrophy: Muscle fiber growth caused by mechanical tension - Have you ever wondered how muscle growth happens after strength training?Do you want to understand the mechanisms by which increases in muscle size are triggered? Would you like to know how to write training programs that lead to maximum gains in muscle mass? In this short book, Chris Beardsley gives you a theoretical framework to help you achieve all of this.

The book is divided into four sections. This section explains why it is unnecessary to hypothesize roles for metabolic stress and muscle damage, even when it is achieved by using very light external loads, and why mechanical tension is solely responsible for muscle growth, because such loads can still cause very high mechanical tension on individual muscle fibers through the interactions of fatigue and the force-velocity relationship.

The second section interprets the most important concepts of hypertrophy training in the light of this framework, time under tension, including training volume, and progressive overload. The third section covers the key training variables for any program, and the use of advanced techniques such as pre-exhaustion, proximity to failure, the mind-muscle connection, drop sets, frequency, contraction mode, rest period duration, tempo, such as load, range of motion, forced reps, volume, exercise order, and super sets.
