harder and. in so doing, strengthens and conditions them..
• Anaerobic exercise is any exercise that requires short bursts of power, such as all out sprinting or very heavy weight-lifting, which do not require a significant increase in oxygen delivery to the muscle.,
Resistance exercise, also called strength training, increases muscle
strength by putting more than the usual amount of strain on a muscle.
This increased load stimulates the growth of small proteins inside each muscle. cell that play acentral role in the ability of the muscle to generate force. resistance
stresses bones as , well as muscles and helps increase bone mineral content and prevent osteoporosis.
Flexibility exercises use gentle, etching movements to increase
the length of the muscles and the
effective range of motion in the
joints. Flexibility exercises can be... an important part of an injury
prevention or rehabilitation program if chronically tight muscle groups contribute to the problem.
