Physiology Of Endurance Training Part 1 : Cardiopulmonary System
In our earlier blog we have seen that endurance based activities primarily depend on Oxidative Phosphorylation (Oxygen) energy system, hence it is beneficial for an athlete or coach to understand the fundamentals of cardiopulmonary system, which is responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body. The word cardiopulmonary stands for heart and lungs and the mechanism […]
Physiology of Endurance Training Part 3: Effects on the Cardiopulmonary system.
Until now, we have seen that an improvement in the oxygen carrying ability is an important factor contributing to peak performance in endurance sport, since it is heavily dependent on the oxidative energy system (Oxygen dependent). Athletes can see significant improvements in the cardiopulmonary system and oxygen carrying capabilities of the body through regular training, […]
Endurance Tests and Assessments Part 1 : Movement Analysis and Biomechanics
The goal of every Training Program is to maximize effectiveness and improve competitive performance. By minimising risk of injuries and maximising enjoyment, a well-designed training program can benefit competitive athletes as well as non-competitive and recreational athletes. Regular testing helps determine is working to improve an athlete’s performance or is detrimental to progress. Usually field […]
