Flashcards in Chapter 12 - SAQ Training Deck (29):
1

SAQ Training

Allows clients to enhance their ability to accelerate, decelerate, and dynamically stabilize their entire body during higher-velocity acceleration and deceleration movements in all POM

2

Speed

The ability to move in one intended direction as fast as possible
-Product of stride rate and stride length

3

Stride Rate

Number of strides taken in a given amount of time

4

Stride Length

The distance covered with each stride

5

Speed Importance

Should be addressed because of its implications for power and force production

6

Proper Sprint Mechanics

Allow the client to maximize force generation through biomechanical efficiency, allowing maximal movement velocity to be achieved in the shortest time possible

7

Frontside Mechanics

Proper alignment of the lead leg and pelvis during sprinting
-Involved triple flexion of the ankle, knee, and hip
-Associated with better stability, less breaking forces, and increased forward driving forces

8

Backside Mechanics

Proper alignment of the rear leg and pelvis during sprinting
-Involves triple extension of the ankle, knee, and hip in appropriate synchrony
-Associated with a stronger push phase, and backside arm drive

9

Front and Backside Mechanics

Work in synchrony to apply force to the ground, recover from a stride cycle, and propel the body forward effectively

10

Pelvis During Sprinting

Important always stays neutral to facilitate proper ROM and force production

11

Agility

The ability to accelerate, decelerate, stabilize, and change direction quickly while maintaining proper posture

12

Agility Requirements

Requires high levels of NM efficiency

13

Agility Purpose

Can enhance NM coordination, dynamic flexibility, dynamic postural control, functional core strength, and proprioception
-Can prevent injury and improve structural integrity of connective tissue

14

Quickness

Reaction time, the ability to react and change body position with maximal rate of force production, in all POM and from all body positions during functional activities

15

Quickness CONT.

Involves the ability to assess visual, auditory, or kinesthetic stimuli and to provide the appropriate physical response as fast as possible

16

SAQ For Nonathletic Populations

The increased NM, biomechanical, and physiological demand for such training can aid in weight loss, coordination, movement proficiency, and injury prevention when applied safely and effectively as seen in the OPT model

17

SAQ Adaptations

Rapid adaptation to SAQ training is critical in the development, maintenance, and improvement of the NM, physiologic, and biomechanical proficiency from childhood to senior

18

SAQ Training for Youth

For children to continue developing in an effective manner they must learn through external measures how to adapt and apply appropriate movement patterns
-SAQ training has been found to decrease the likelihood of injury, increase likehood of exercise adherence and participation, and improve physical fitness

19

SAQ Drills for Youth

20

SAQ Training for Weight-Loss

Weight loss clients benefit from the increase exercised intensity and variety of movements offered
-Also more fun, engaging, and exciting leading to exercise adherence

21

Primary Focus of SAQ Training for Weight-Loss

Keep HR appropriately elevated to increase fat oxidation and caloric expenditure

22

SAQ Training for Seniors

Prevents age related decreases in bone density, coordinative ability, and muscular power

23

SAQ and Ostopenia

Found to be effective in slowing and potentially reversing in ostopenia in older adults

24

Ostopenia

Loss in bone density

25

Movement Confidence and Proficiency

Essential in older adults to aid in the prevention of falls and maintain activities of daily life

26

Sarcopenia

Age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass

27

SAQ Training and Sarcopenia

Along with resistance training, has been found to slow or reverse the process of

28

SAQ Training Focus for Seniors

Drills should focus around the activities the individuals will need for daily life, such as standing-up, walking up stairs, and navigating ground obstacles

29

SAQ Drills for Seniors

-Varied size cone/hurdle step overs
-stand up to figure 8
