1

What is integrated training?

A comprehensive approach that attempts to improve all components necessary for an athlete to perform at the highest level and prevent injury

2

What does integrated training focus on?

It focuses on developing functional strength and neuromuscular efficiency

3

What is functional strength?

The ability of the neuromusculoskeletal system to efficiently and effectively produce force, reduce force, and dynamically stabilize the entire human movement system during functional movements

4

What is neuromuscular efficiency?

It is the ability of the CNS to allow agonists, antagonists, synergists, and stabilizers to work interdependently during dynamic athletic activities

5

What is functional strength?

The ability of the neuromuscular system to contract eccentrically, concentrically and isometrically in all 3 planes of motion

6

What is the Stretch Shortening Cycle?

An active stretch (eccentric contraction) of a muscle followed by an immediate shortening (concentric) of that same muscle

7

What is altered reciprocal inhibition?

When a tight muscles, for example, the psoas, causes decreased neural drive to its functional antagonist (gluteus maximus)

8

What is synergistic dominance?

When synergists compensate for a weak or inhibited prime mover in an attempt to maintain force production and functional movement patterns

9

What is flexibility?

The ability of the HMS to have optimum ROM as well as neuromuscular control throughout that ROM in order to prevent injury and enhance functional efficiency

10

What is strength?

The ability of the neuromuscular system to exert force against resistance
