Strength and conditioning

• Strength – the extent to which muscles can exert force by contracting against resistance (holding or restraining an object or person)
• Power – the ability to exert maximum muscular contraction instantly in an explosive burst of movements (jumping or sprint starting)
• Agility – the ability to perform a series of explosive power movements in rapid succession in opposing directions (zigzag running or cutting movements)
• Balance – the ability to control the body’s position, either stationary (e.g. a handstand) or while moving (e.g. a vault or gymnastics stunt)
• Flexibility – the ability to achieve an extended range of motion without being impeded by excess tissue, i.e. fat or muscle (executing a leg split). Flexibility can be further broken down into: static passive, dynamic and static active
• Local Muscle Endurance – a single muscle’s ability to perform sustained work (rowing or cycling)
• Cardiovascular Endurance – the heart’s ability to deliver blood to working muscles and their ability to use it (running long distances)
• Strength Endurance – a muscle’s ability to perform a maximum contracture time after time (continuous explosive rebounding through an entire basketball game)
• Coordination – the ability to integrate the above listed components so that effective movements are achieved.
