Abstract

ABSTRACT: ONE OF THE PRIMARY PRINCIPLES USED IN STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING IS THE CONCEPT OF OVERLOAD. THERE HAS TO BE AN INCREASE IN VOLUME, LOAD, OR INTENSITY (OR SOME COMBINATION OF EACH) OVER TIME FOR PHYSIOLOGICAL ADAPTATIONS TO CONTINUE TO OCCUR AS A RESULT OF TRAINING. AS A RESULT, THERE HAS TO BE SOME SORT OF RECORD KEEPING PROCESS IN PLACE SO THAT THE ATHLETE OR COACH CAN TRACK TRAINING RESULTS AS THE ATHLETE PROGRESSES THROUGH EACH TRAINING CYCLE ON A DAILY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY, AND YEARLY BASIS. WE ASKED OUR PANEL OF COLLEGIATE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACHES WHAT PROCESSES THEY HAVE IN PLACE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS REQUIREMENT.
