1

What are the three areas benefited by strength training

1. Muscle and connective tissue
2. Neural
3. Metabolic

2

Name 2 muscle and connective tissue adaptations

1. Muscle hypertrophy
2. Muscle hyperplasia
3. Increased size of microfibrils
4. Increased strength of ligaments and tendons

3

Name 2 neural adaptations

1. Increased recruitment of motor units containing FG and FOG muscle fibres
2. Increased force of contraction of the agonist muscle due to the stretch reflex being delayed and so there is a reduction in antagonist muscle inhabition

4

Name 2 metabolic adaptations

1. Increased anaerobic fuel stores
2. Increased anaerobic enzyme activity
3. Improved buffering capacity - tolerance and removal of lactic acid using sodium bicarbonate
