1 Strength Training for Women, Young Athletes and Senior Athletes Chapters 9-11

2 Female Needs Upper body strength, size and power Upper body strength, size and power Less CSA than males and smaller diameter Less CSA than males and smaller diameter May use a bodybuilding program? May use a bodybuilding program? Benefits are the same as males Benefits are the same as males

3 Myths? Page 176

4 Strength and Power Development Heavy resistance (80-95%) and low reps (3- 5RM) Heavy resistance (80-95%) and low reps (3- 5RM) P=(fxd)/t strength vs. speed training P=(fxd)/t strength vs. speed training High speed and acceleration training High speed and acceleration training Typically 30-45% of 1RM for power Typically 30-45% of 1RM for power Plyometrics and SAQ Plyometrics and SAQ

7 Physiological Gender Differences Fewer and smaller fibers Fewer and smaller fibers Quantity vs quality? Quantity vs quality? Upper body absolute strength 40% of males Upper body absolute strength 40% of males Lower body absolute strength 70% of males Lower body absolute strength 70% of males Power 65% of males Power 65% of males Lower body relative strength is SIMILAR Lower body relative strength is SIMILAR Women may have larger type I than II fibers Women may have larger type I than II fibers RFD and RVD less for women (neural bias) RFD and RVD less for women (neural bias)

16 Youth Training Safety is paramount SUPERVISION Safety is paramount SUPERVISION Injury comes from improper technique Injury comes from improper technique Epiphysis damage, bone fracture and stress fracture RISK are greater in youth Epiphysis damage, bone fracture and stress fracture RISK are greater in youth Weight room vs. sports injuries Weight room vs. sports injuries Risk vs. benefit? Risk vs. benefit?

17 When to Start? Psychological readiness (why?) Psychological readiness (why?) Physiological readiness (size) Physiological readiness (size) Neural adaptations pre-puberty (quick and dramatic gains) Neural adaptations pre-puberty (quick and dramatic gains) Testosterone secretion by sex Testosterone secretion by sex Benefits Page 203 Benefits Page 203

22 Age and Strength Genetic and cultural Genetic and cultural Magnitude of training with age? Magnitude of training with age? Decline in strength with age Decline in strength with age Andropause and menopause Andropause and menopause Sarcopenia of type II Sarcopenia of type II Great decline at 6 th decade and worse in women Great decline at 6 th decade and worse in women Loss of CSA Loss of CSA Power loss with age (correlated with function) Power loss with age (correlated with function) Physiological loss bottom of page 217 Physiological loss bottom of page 217

27 Recovery and Guidelines Longer time for rest (frequency) Longer time for rest (frequency) Interset? Interset? Greater muscle damage Greater muscle damage Joint stress with compression Joint stress with compression Increased bone health Increased bone health Program design is the same at any age Program design is the same at any age Injury risk with weak bones and tissues Injury risk with weak bones and tissues
