  • Muscle Strength

    I want high school students/ athletes to develop their knowledge in resistance training and muscular strength. “Muscle strength is the ability of a muscle or muscle groups to exert maximum force (Miller).” Students will gain a better understanding of the importance to participate in muscle strength activities both on and off the field. With the use of the progressive overload theory along with various types of muscular strength workouts students will utilize free weights and machines in order to gain results that will help develop their muscle strength. In order to see the progression and increase muscle strength of my students/athletes I will use 1RM to assess their progress and muscle strength in hopes to see an increase by the end of the program. The…

  • Muscles In Care

    As part of my role as a care worker, from time to time I may be required to assist service users to move or reposition them.

  • Muscle Training

    Whilst cardiovascular training has weight loss and heart and lung health benefits, there is more to fitness than this.

  • Muscle Contraction

    II.I How it is use? Muscle contraction requires the use of ATP molecules. Indeed, muscle cells are composed of contractile elements: sarcomeres. Muscle contraction is due to the slippage of myosin fibers on the actin fibers. For this, the head of the myosin binds to the troponin site of the actin filament. Then, an ATP molecule will bind to myosin to separate actin and myosin and thus allow its attachment to the neighboring troponin site due to hydrolysis of ATP in ADP + Pi. This creates a…

  • Muscle Hypertrophy

    ABSTRACT: Muscle hypertrophy refers to increase in muscular size caused by expansion or increasing count of myofibrils (hyperplasia) within skeletal muscles. Resistance-based training causes microtrauma within myocytes of target muscles. Damage to muscle cells induce activation of myosatellite cells, which proliferate as myoblast [1]. Myoblasts differentiate and recover damaged cells as they fuse with the tissues, making the cell more durable than the original state. Satellite cells may…

    types of muscles within the human body that aid the body with movement while a few also helps with stabilizing the bones (Allen and Harper 2014). Skeletal, cardiac, and smooth are the three types of muscular tissues found within the body (Tortora and Derrickson 2014). The heart is made out of cardiac muscle tissue and that is striated (Tortora and Derrickson 2014).
