How We Adapt to Resistance Training

by Matt Cotterill

Chapter 1 General Adaptation Syndrome

To understand that the human body has a general adaptive response to all forms of stress.

An overview of Hans Selye's research and his finding on stress and adaptation

To understand how this general adaptive response is impacted by different magnitudes of stress. 

To understand how to use this knowledge to create better training and recovery strategies for our clients. 

Chapter 2 Adaptation to Resistance Training – Central Adaptations

Understand the role of forces in the movement. 

Understanding the structure and function of the Nervous system 

Understand how nerves recruit specific muscle fibres based on Henneman's Size Principle

Understand how the nervous system allows the body to apply these forces.

Understand how the nervous system adapts when we challenge its ability to produce force. 

Understand how we can enhance those adaptations via different training strategies.

Chapter 3 Adaptation to Resistance Training – Peripheral Adaptations

Understand the basic physiological structure of muscle tissue, 

Understand the sliding filament theory how the contractile properties of the muscle work to produce force

What is hypertrophy and how these contractile properties adapt in response to resistance training

Physical & nutritional strategies to enhance specific adaptations
