Dramatic advances in the prescription of anaerobic exercise, especially over the past 15 years, have led to better strength training programs. Grounded in fundamental principles of specificity, progressive overload, and variation of training, an anaerobic exercise prescription for strength development is individualized to meet training goals. Physicians who know the basic principles can prescribe exercise to effectively build muscle strength in active patients. 

Topics from this paper

Exercise and Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation
TLDR
A comprehensive rehabilitation plan for musculoskeletal sports injuries is composed of the acute, recovery, and functional phases, and exercise, in its various forms, is an integral part of all three phases. Expand
Strength training: What the team physician needs to know
TLDR
This framework will give physicians and other athletic heath care providers the basic information needed to design and implement a safe and effective strength training program. Expand

Effects of imagery-weight exercise.
TLDR
Imagery-weight exercise is another effective technique of low impact strength training, and it is shown that it improves muscle strength in both the dominant and non-dominant arms. Expand
Comparison of the effects of two resistance training regimens on muscular and bone responses in premenopausal women
TLDR
In both groups, bone mineral density was not changed but muscle strength increased, and there were changes in anthropometrical and muscle damage parameters, indicating that in this population, these models are similar concerning these variables. Expand
Reliability of the 10RM test in the supine vertical press and leg extension machines
TLDR
The 10RM test with the supine vertical press and leg extension has a very high relative reliability and an MDC acceptable for young, untrained and sedentary adults. Expand
An Adequate Interset Rest Period for Strength Recovery During a Common Isokinetic Test
TLDR
It is suggested that a 1:3 work:rest ratio is sufficient during a common isokinetic strength test, as an effective method of standardizing rest periods in isokinetics testing. Expand
Reporting of acute programme variables and exercise descriptors in rehabilitation strength training for tibiofemoral joint soft tissue injury: A systematic review.
TLDR
Future studies should better document APVs and EDs for higher standards of intervention reporting and enhanced translation of research to clinical practice. Expand
Determinação da carga de treino nos exercícios supino e rosca bíceps em mulheres jovens
The purpose of this study was to assess maximum strength (1RM) in the bench press and biceps curl exercises, and relate it to total body mass (BM) and fat-free mass (FFM), as well as to assess theExpand
THE SIZE PRINCIPLE AND A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE UNSUBSTANTIATED HEAVIER-IS-BETTER RECOMMENDATION FOR RESISTANCE TRAINING
The size principle states that motor units are recruited in an orderly manner from the smaller (lower threshold) to the larger (higher threshold) motor units, and that the recruitment is dependent onExpand

TLDR
In order to stimulate further adaptation toward a specific training goal(s), progression in the type of resistance training protocol used is necessary and emphasis should be placed on multiple-joint exercises, especially those involving the total body. Expand

Variation or periodization of training is an important concept in designing weight-training programs. To date, the majority of studies examining periodization of weight training have used aExpand
Physiologic responses to heavy-resistance exercise with very short rest periods.
TLDR
Heart rate, ratings of perceived exertion (RPE), and lactate levels were obtained during the exercise protocol; significant increases were observed above rest for these variables and decreases in eosinophil counts were observed following exercise. Expand
Importance of eccentric actions in performance adaptations to resistance training.
TLDR
The results indicate that omission of ecc actions from resistance training compromises increases in strength, probably because intensity is not optimal. Expand

Low-volume circuit versus high-volume periodized resistance training in women.
TLDR
Significant improvements in muscular performance may be attained with either a low-volume single-set program or a high-volume, periodized multiple- set program during the first 12 wk of training in untrained women. Expand
A Syndrome produced by Diverse Nocuous Agents
TLDR
If the organism is severely damaged by acute non-specific nocuous agents such as exposure to cold, surgical injury, production of spinal shock, excessive muscular exercise, or intoxications with sublethal doses of diverse drugs, a typical syndrome appears, the symptoms of which are independent of the nature of the damaging agent or the pharmacological type of the drug employed.
