Adaptations to RT

Week 2 Notes

Adaptations to Resistance Training include: Neural Muscular Cardiovascular Endocrine Connective Tissue
Neural Adaptations: Increased Neural Drive --> Increased Muscle Agonist Increased Firing Rate Increased Pattern and Timing of Discharge
Neural Adaptations: Increase is maximum strength and power --> Increased motor unit recruitment Increased rate of motor unit firing Increased synchronisation of firing
What Muscular Adaptations occur when undertaking a resistance training program? 1. Hypertrophy (cross sectional area, increased synthesis/decreased degradation of contractile proteins, increased no* of myofibrils within muscle fibres) 2. Fibre Size Changes 3. Fibre Type Transitions (slow twitch/fast twitch) 4. Cytoplasmic density
Connective Tissue Adaptations --> Bones: mechanical loading (osteoblasts), increased hypertrophy, increased bone mass, greater BMD in resistance trained athletes Tendons/Ligaments/Fascia: high intensity loads = growth of tissue Cartilage: greater weight bearing abilty
Endocrine Responses include --> 1. Acute changes during/after exercise 2. Chronic changes in the acute responses to a workout 3. Chronic changes in resting concetrations 4. Changes in receptor content (increased testosterone up to 30 mins post exercise
Cardiovascular Adaptations --> 1. Acute responses: HR, SV, CO, BP 2. Increased left ventricular wall thickness
The adaptations to aerobic and resistance training --> Decreased strength and power gains, no effect on aerobic adaptations, concurrent training seems to affect power development more than strength development

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
