The principles of training can improve our physical strength ability by developing absolute strength, power and endurance. The principles of training are: progressive over-load, reversibility, specificity, variety, training threshold and worm up/cool down.
Progressive over-load is a training principle that states that, if you want to progressively increase your strength ability you will need to do your training, adapt to that and then increase the weight. For example: You lift 20kg, you adapt to that and then you upgrade the weight to 25kg. Progressive over-load would be considered as an ‘absolute-strength’ training principle.
Reversibility is also a training principle meaning that whatever training you are doing, after a while of not doing the same physical activity your body will do the exact opposite). E.g. when you are working out at the gym for a few years your muscles will grow. But if you have stopped going to the gym all of your muscles will turn into fat. This principle develops and increases our ‘endurance’ which is another basic principle of training.
The principle, ‘specificity’ implies that you should specify to the training you are doing). E.g. when you are aiming to get flexible you wouldn’t be going to the gym for muscle development. This would also be considered as a ‘power’ sort of training principle.
The next principle is variety. Variety simply means that following a bigger and different training routine is essential to keep boredom away and keep the training session more positive and motivating. This is a very important principle for both individual and team sports. This would also be known as a ‘power’ training principle.
Another training principle is the ‘training threshold’. Thresholds generally refer to a specific point which, when passed, take the person to a new level. When we train we expect improvement to occur. However, we must work at an intensity that will cause our bodies to respond in a particular way. The lowest level at...
