Physiological adaptations to training are specific to: muscle action involved speed of movement range of motion muscle groups trained energy systems involved Overload Principle
Optimal gains in strength (or endurance) are most pronounced when the muscle is exercised at resistances above those normally encountered. Progression Principle A deliberate increase in the training stimulus throughout a conditioning program. Figure 6.1 Individuality Principle People respond differently to the same training stimulus.
