The Effect of Repetitive Muscle Strain Injury (RSI) on the Game Performance Among the Varsity Players in Silliman University
German Volume Training or more commonly known as GVT or the Ten sets method is a weight training program commonly seen amongst bodybuilders or weightlifters (Hansen, 2003). This training method was created during the 1970s by German National Weight Lifting coach Rolf Feser with the sole purpose of gaining power, strength and muscle mass over the course of a certain period of the training. ( Croft, 2014). This study is a brief review of GVT and its pros and cons to the athlete. According to a study by (Cazeault,2014), the following are the benefits of using GVT in sports training: a.Improve muscle mass, b. Improve muscle endurance and c.strength improvement.
Yes the runners endure the painful races and agonizing workouts, but the coaches have to have the intelligence to plan what to do. The coaches and training staff must receive, and should receive some of the attention and credit the runners earn from their performances. The execution of these tasks results in success for everyone involved. Some of which the coaches’ importance comes into play is planning and organizing specific runs, which may include; long runs, fartleks, tempos, track workouts, and hill workouts. Also mattering much the aerobic exercise without constant everyday pounding of the legs. The good coaches know when their runners need an easy day, or a rest day. And, the best coaches know why these days are so important, letting the body recover and build back strength. Because each runner varies, coaches must accompany each runner’s differences in runs. These may include different workouts on different days, different food choices, weight lifting, and again, recovery days. As mentioned previously, coaches must know how to adapt to each individualized runner. Running coaches ensure that the athletes are working hard, but not too hard, as this could lead to injury. The coaches must provide the motivation to dominate a race, as well as the mental and emotional support as these runners perform a very physically and mentally daunting task. After all the rigorous workouts, rest and
Stress has been an increasing issue regarding not only college students, but also student-athletes. Imagine the workload of any normal college student. Then imagine on top of academics, playing a sport which occupies the remaining available time within your day and weekend. This is the life of a student-athlete. Many student-athletes are able to handle the schedule and pressure that one faces in the collegiate environment, but some cannot.
Have you ever wondered if playing one sport is better than playing multiple sports? Studies have shown that there are many benefits to playing more than one sport. Playing multiple sports can help you in the future and can prevent you from having serious injuries. I believe, that it is much better for an athlete to play more than just one sport.
Josh Laker grew up in a small town named Philo in the cornfields of central Illinois. He has always had a passion for sports and played a variety of sports growing up. His main focus through sixth grade was basketball, which he continued to play throughout junior and high school. It was in junior high
Through the years there have been quite a few dietary supplements that promise natural muscle growth and performance enhancing effects. Of these, no preparations attracted such attention as creatine.
Analyse how the principles of training can be applied to the training of a junior representative (16-18 yrs old) Rugby League player.
Relative intensity, on the other hand, can be quantified as a proportion of an athlete's maximum speed, or by a physiologic variable such as percentage of maximum heart rate or percent heart rate reserve. Intensity is generally considered to be the most critical factor of training. Within the training process, the correct balance of low-, medium-, and high-intensity training is critical to the adaptation process and if too much moderate- or high-intensity training is undertaken, there is a significant risk of fatigue which may lead to over-reaching or
“In a free market economy, individuals whose work provides the value should reap some of the rewards. If I made a lot of money for my company, I 'd expect to be compensated for it” (College athletes deserve more compensation). Is it shocking that most high profile colleges make billions of dollars off athletic programs, and not a dime is restored to the athletes who make it? A college is a business, and these businesses are extremely money hungry, that will not change, but there needs to be a more equitable partnerships between colleges and the athletes. Most collegiate athletes spend a fair amount of their time with schooling and trying to perfect their craft, which can be painfully stressful and overwhelming. Every ounce of their energy
Their breakfast was about 400Kcal. After eating, the subjects were put into two groups. One group was the AdvoCare Spark, and the other group was the placebo. They received one serving size that was 8 FL oz. The beverages were served cool, and consumed entirely. Subjects consumed citrus flavored water mixed with maltodextrin as the placebo. The player took food frequency questionnaire about their caffeine intake. They performed the RAST at Romney Stadium. They warmed up for at least twenty-five minutes. The RAST consists of six 35-m discontinuous sprints. The time was recorded to the nearest hundredth of a second. A week later, the same procedure was followed with each athlete receiving a different treatment from the week
Game day has finally arrived. College scouts watch every move the varsity athlete makes, the plays he executes, and how much pain he can endure. As if nerves are not enough, the athlete has just finished a strenuous workout in gym class. For years, varsity student athletes have tried to balance school, sleep, sports, and homework. Participating in gym causes unnecessary stress and strain on an athlete 's body and mind. High school athletes should have gym class scheduled for the last period of the school day so they can head to their athletic
What if I told that there is a battle going on right now. Do you hear it? An omnipresent endeavor fought virtually everywhere on the planet. A battle that belongs to a much deeper, longer, one could say primordial war. One where each and every one of us are “soldiers” in. However this battle isn’t fought with guns, this battle isn’t even fought with swords. For this battle plays itself out daily, consistently, since time in memoriam right in between our ears. Religion calls this ancient battle the fight between the flesh and the spirit, perhaps in a broader sense the struggle between good and evil. A toil for your “soul.” On the mental battlefield of one’s mind.
Did you know that by some estimates, up to 60 percent of competitive athletes overtrain at some point? A recent study conducted showed that over 15 percent of 200 elite British athletes tested met the criteria for being overtrained, and thus, felt the effects of a “burnout” (Reynolds 1). To understand the toll that overtraining can take on an athlete’s life, consider Whitney Myers, a world class swimmer at the University of Arizona. In 2006, Myers won the women’s N.C.A.A. title in the 200 and 400-yard individual medleys, while going on to win gold in the 200-meter individual medley at the Pan Pacific Championships. Less than a year later, however, she stumbled under pressure at the 2007 Long-Course Championships, making the finals in only one
A time in my life that I have had to come together with other people to solve differences would be in cheerleading. There were thirteen girls, all with very different personalities and opinions. Like most cases, our personalities clashed at times, resulting in conflict. Most of the time we were able to resolve our conflicts, but when it came down to our homecoming routine, there was a lot of tension between us all. It is difficult to balance school and cheer at the same time, especially around the time of homecoming. We often had long, stressful practices that left us feeling weak and drained. Our muscles had no time to recuperate from the constant lifting and stretching, since we would practice every day. We all brought many different talents and strengths to the team, as well as weaknesses.
