  • Adaptations to strength training
    • cardio vascular adaptations
      • hypertrophy of heart
      • increaced blood pressure
      • increaced capillary density
      • decreaced volume of left ventrical
    • neural adaptations
      • increase in fast twitch fibres
      • increased recruitment of motor neurones
      • imroved co-ordination of motorneurones
      • imroved antagonist stretch and agonist force
    • skeletal and metabolic adaptations
      • muscle hypertrophy
      • hyperplasia (more muscle fibres- fast twitch)
      • increaced actin and myosin cross bridges
      • increaced atp/pc stores
      • removal of lactic acis
      • increaced enzyme action
      • increaced anerobic capacity
