1

Overstriding

A walking or running gait in which the foot hits too far in front of the body’s center of gravity, causing a braking effect. (NSCA CPT, pg. 358)

2

Understriding

A walking or running gait in which the
foot takes too short a stride, causing wasted energy. (NSCA CPT, pg. 358)

3

Freestyle

A swimming stroke with a straight and prone body position, an overhand arm motion, and a flutter kick. (NSCA CPT, pg. 358)

4

Six variables of Safe Participation

Proper hydration, Appropriate Clothing and footwear, warm-up and cool-down, prescription of exercise frequency, intensity, and duration, proper breathing technique, and exercise program variation. (NSCA CPT, pg. 348)
