: There are many factors that can affect a person’s ability to improve their muscular strength. Some variables that can affect muscular strength progression include frequency, volume, and intensity of training as well as rest intervals, stretching strategies, pharmacology, and experience level. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommendations for muscular strengthening does not align with the available evidence regarding the many factors that go into a person’s/patients exercise protocol.
Principals of Strength thoroughly investigates the latest what the literature tells us about the above variables and how they should be manipulated to effectively and efficiently build muscular strength in our patients. Furthermore, Principles of Strength will look at the latest research on motor imagery, and contralateral limb strengthening in regards to prevention of strength loss on an immobilized extremity as a result of injury, surgery, and/or casting.
