These stretches reduce muscle stiffness, which is related to muscle injury. Dynamic stretches consist of controlled leg and arm swings. Stretching during your workout is not necessary; just perform your warm up sets prior to each exercise. If you are going to stretch during your workout, don't stretch the muscle you are directly using in the movement(s), stretch the antagonistic muscles e.g. When squatting, stretch the hip flexors, or when benching, stretch the lats.
The goal of a bodybuilder is to increase muscle size (muscular hypertrophy) and definition (low percentage of body fat) all for the purpose of aesthetics. Whilst there will be a certain level of increased strength the large muscles do not mean a package of potential terror; all show and no go as it is said. Whereas strength & conditioning training has a focus on applied GPP and SPP improvement in areas of strength & conditioning. Athletes would focus more towards increases in neural activity in muscle fiber recruitment, and its application in force production and speed. Athletes would also focus on other areas such as conditioning (energy system -primarily lactic anaerobic), mobility, agility and
Endurance exercises, or also known as aerobic, are the activities which will increase our breathing and our heart rate. They will help our heart, lungs, and circulatory system healthier, and they will improve our fitness too. Usually, they are include walking, jogging, dancing, yard working, etc. Next, strength exercises, which is also called resistance exercises, are the kind of actions that make our muscles stronger. Resistance training can be done through many kinds of weight lifting exercises.
Muscular Endurance- Muscular endurance is your muscles ability to withstand some sort of weight/force/pressure over a long period of time. Muscular endurance could be considered aerobic due to the time taken but muscular endurance can be improved despite training in the anaerobic energy system (weightlifting requires 15+ reps to train which won’t take longer than 2 minutes, you can also work for hours and hours on muscular endurance whilst doing cardio as well, hence why marathon runners have very defined muscles instead of just being very skinny). Oxygen is needed for the body to metabolise fat which is important for an endurance athlete whose event lasts longer than 2 minutes. An athlete with good muscular endurance will have larger glycogen
Also, distance running improves cardiovascular health, aerobic fitness to increase the activity of enzymes and hormones which will make the muscles and the heart efficiently work. In addition, distance running can serve as a bonding exercise to others, such as parents, friends, and can be even become the nation building. The performance of distance running can be improved by the social element. Signification,
Physical fitness also refers to an individuals mental state as well. Mental fitness can only be achieved if your body is functioning well (Kent, 1). Physical fitness has numerous benefits. The first benefit is physical fitness controls weight. It helps prevent excess weight gain or help increase weight loss.
This would benefit you as it increases our anaerobic capacity meaning we won’t fatigue as easily, this would mean you could work harder for longer and have a better impact on the game. Muscular Strength Training: Muscular strength training is where you use a heavier weight with less reps to put lots of stress onto our muscles in a short period of time. Strength training increases our strength so you can withstand our opponents challenging us for the ball, kick the ball harder and further and also jump higher. This will benefit you as you will be able to retain the ball, jump higher to header the ball and even get the ball to a teammate further away.

• Strength adaptations are training specific. Thus, changes that result from a given conditioning intervention may be discernible only if the characteristics of muscle contraction (s) are similar between the conditioning and the demands of the sport. Component: Muscular endurance Definition: The ability to perform repetitive muscular contractions against some resistance. Many sport codes involves skills that must be applied dynamically, explosively and repeatedly. If an athlete’s strength endurance is not good, one’s muscles will fatigue readily and performance will decrease as one reaches the latter part of a game/match
