<p>In this episode, host and NASM Master Instructor Rick Richey, &nbsp;answers a question from a student listener about the sliding filament theory/model of muscle contractions. Rick goes into the detail about the anatomy and characteristics of skeletal muscles, muscle filaments actin and myosin, "force-field proteins" troponin and tropomyosin, cellular currency, and more! He then helps listeners use what we just learned to better understand the length-tension relationships based on limited cross-bridging.

What is Corrective Exercise and How is it Used?
<p>In this episode of the NASM-CPT Podcast, Rick talks about the four-step NASM Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx) as well as the new NASM Correcitve Exercise Specialization that launched in Q1 2020. The text has been retooled and the research is has been updated to reflect the current scientific data.&nbsp;</p> <p>This episode discusses the implementation of corrective exercise and speaks to the newly emerging “Regional Interdependence Model” that empirically shows that dysfunction in one area does not mean that is the source of the problem. This is why it is so important to correctly identify the problem, correctly solve the problem, and effectively implement a solution based on the previous tenants.

The One Where We Talk HIIT and SIT
<p>In this episode, Rick discusses the differences in Sprint Interval Training (SIT) and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and the benefits of both including:</p><p>- Time efficiency</p><p>- Health and fitness benefits</p><p>- Aerobic and anaerobic performance</p><p>- Better fat oxidation</p><p>- Lower blood pressure</p><p>- Increased insulin sensitivity</p><p>- Optimized&nbsp;hormonal responses</p><p>- Weight loss</p><p>- Decreased in abdominal weight</p><p>- Increased EPOC</p><p>That's an impressive list and by no means exhaustive.</p><p>HIIT work to rest ratio is often seen as 1:1, 1:2, and 1:3</p><p>Sprint interval training involves an all-out effort for shorter durations and longer rest. SIT work to rest ratio is often seen as 1:8 with some researchers indicated that rest is still too short! The following workout may be seen during SIT:</p><p>•(1)30:240 (4×30 s bouts, 240 s [4 mins] recovery);</p><p>•(2) 15:120 (8×15 s bouts, 120 s [2 mins] recovery);</p><p>•(3) 5:40 (24×5 s bouts, 40 s recovery)</p><p>(Islam et al, 2017)</p><p>This episode contains quite a bit of research (thank you Dr. Brian Oddi) and shows empirically that the calories expended in HIIT and Sprint versus moderate-intensity training can provide increased weight loss from abdominal and visceral&nbsp;fat stores.

More on Periodization and Programming
<p>Periodization and programming are not necessarily the same thing. Periodization is the cycles of training that take place. Often, we talk about macro, meso, and micro cycles. In sports, the periodization may include those concepts, but change based on the season: off-season, pre-season, in-season, and hopefully … post-season. Off-season may have several different training cycles. Early on it will be focused on recovery! After a progressive lead-in (a long micro-cycle or a single mesocycle) the programs can focus more and more intense exercises depending on the sport, but most sports that come to mind will have intense training involved at some point … which is usually the offseason. This episode will focus, not on sports programming, but routines within every period of training that should take place. These routine components that comprise a program may include the following: warm-ups, flexibility, cardio and metabolic training, core, balance, reactive/plyometrics, SAQ, resistance training, and cool-downs.</p><p><em><strong>Get 20% off your order now by calling 800-460-6276 or visiting </strong></em><a href="https://www.nasm.org/?utm_source=podcast&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_campaign=organic&amp;utm_content=OveractiveUnderactive2"><em><strong>NASM.org</strong></em></a><em><strong>, and using the code Podcast 20.</strong></em></p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nasm-cpt/message

Exercise Programming and Periodization
<p>This week we look at the differences between periodization, programming, and routines. These are often used interchangeably and should not be. There is a mean of delineating the three and refining not only how we speak to them, but also how we implement them. Briefly, the following are discussed:</p><p><strong>Periodization</strong>&nbsp;–&nbsp;division of a training program into smaller, progressive stages</p><p><em>Macrocycle</em><em><strong>:</strong></em>&nbsp;long-term training period, usually between six months and one year</p><p>My macrocycle might be my timeline to get someone through the OPT Model</p><p><em>Mesocycle</em><em><strong>:</strong></em>&nbsp;smaller phases within the macrocycle, usually several weeks to a few months</p><p>Maybe one phase of the OPT Model</p><p><em>Microcycle</em><em><strong>:</strong></em>&nbsp;each part of the mesocycle, usually one week</p><p>A one-to-two-week look at changes that need to be made to a program. This area is where true&nbsp;<u><em>programming</em></u>&nbsp;takes place.</p><p><strong>Programming</strong>&nbsp;is how the acute training variables change within that period of training to optimize training outcomes.</p><p>What is an exercise&nbsp;<strong>ROUTINE</strong>&nbsp;then?</p><p>- When you workout</p><p>- What days you workout</p><p>- What time you workout</p><p>- It can be what you do</p><p>o Cardio</p><p>o Strength</p><p>- It can be what isn’t changing that will eventually need periodization</p><p>o Split routines only</p><p>o Same sets / reps / exercises on repeat</p><p><br></p><p>Enjoy this episode, and as always please provide feedback and let us know what you would like to hear more about. It can be exercise, programming, industry, business, etc. regarding the needs, goals, and desires for the NASM certified personal trainer.</p><p><br></p><p><em><strong>Get 20% off your order now by calling 800-460-6276 or visiting </strong></em><a href="https://www.nasm.org/?utm_source=podcast&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_campaign=organic&amp;utm_content=OveractiveUnderactive2"><em><strong>NASM.org</strong></em></a><em><strong>, and using the code Podcast 20.</strong></em></p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nasm-cpt/message

Below is a small list of responses I have gotten throughout the years when I ask why they are not certified:</p><p>“I could teach these courses.”</p><p>“I know more than most trainers anyway because I’ve been doing this for a long time.”</p><p>“It’s all a racket” … (to make you smarter… oh no!)</p><p>I, being relatively educated in the space of exercise and health science, still maintain multiple certifications. I actually want to increase my education as opposed to only continuing education because a CEU requirement. So, when those that are uncertified want to explain why they should train out of my facilities in NYC, I do not balk. It is unprofessional and there is a HUGE liability issue at stake as well. If you want to become a personal trainer – you MUST get certified. Preferably NASM…;-)</p><p>This episode of the NASM CPT Podcast will discuss, from my perspective, why trainers need to be certified. Tune in and provide your feedback and ideas for future topics to me on IG: @dr.rickrichey or email rick.richey@nasm.org</p><p><br></p><p><em><strong>Get 20% off your order now by calling 800-460-6276 or visiting </strong></em><a href="https://www.nasm.org?utm_source=podcast&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_campaign=organic&amp;utm_content=ImportanceofBeingCertified"><em><strong>NASM.org</strong></em></a><em><strong>, and using the code Podcast 20.</strong></em></p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nasm-cpt/message

Abdominal Hollowing v Abdominal Bracing
<p><br></p><p>Abdominal hollowing (or the draw-in maneuver) and abdominal bracing are both incorporated by therapists, trainers, and other exercise specialists to benefit persons with lumbar instability (Vaičienė, Berškienė, Slapsinskaite, Mauricienė, &amp; Razon, 2018). There is a tendency for professionals to pick one of these interventions while downplaying the validity and value of the other. Integrated training is based on the implementing all evidence that works during the appropriate time with an understanding of how we can optimize outcomes for our clients. We will review the research surrounding abdominal hollowing and abdominal bracing to provide a better understanding of the evidence of their practical applications.</p><p>Evidence shows that deep abdominal muscles are more activated with abdominal hollowing and surface muscles more activated with abdominal bracing (Vaičienė, Berškienė, Slapsinskaite, Mauricienė, &amp; Razon, 2018). Hollowing has shown to increase local spinal stabilizers (Lee et al., 2013; Suehiro et al., 2014; Kim &amp; Oh, 2015; Lee et al., 2016) and LPHC stability while minimizing the facilitation of global muscle activity during exercise (Suehiro et al., 2014; Kahlaee, Ghamkhar, &amp; Arab, 2017). Abdominal hollowing was found superior to abdominal bracing for increasing LPHC stability and leg stiffness in hopping tasks (Dupeyron, Hertzog, Micallef, &amp; Perrey, 2013). Though it does seem that maintaining a neutral spine (Reeve &amp; Dilley, 2009) and costodiaphragmatic (chest / belly) breathing is important to the optimization of muscle activation while performing abdominal hollowing (Ha, Kwon, Kim, &amp; Choung, 2014).</p><p>Multiple data questions the efficacy of treating LBP solely using abdominal hollowing (Unsgaard-Tondel et al., 2012; Vasseljen et al., 2012; Wong et al., 2013). McGill, arguably one of this generation’s top researchers on exercise and the spine, is not a fan of abdominal hollowing, and argues that the transverse abdominus should activate when abdominal bracing is done appropriately without the need to draw-in the navel (2016). He provides evidence that core stiffness is of far more value when it comes to protecting the back (Lee &amp; McGill, 2015).</p><p>Evidence supporting both abdominal bracing and abdominal hollowing work to increase LPHC stabilization. We are not left with a debate on efficacy of these two techniques, but application. Which application should we employee and when?</p><p><br></p><p><em><strong>Get 20% off your order now by calling 800-460-6276 or visiting </strong></em><a href="https://www.nasm.org/?utm_source=general&amp;utm_medium=podcast&amp;utm_campaign=organic&amp;utm_content=gasandsaid"><em><strong>NASM.org</strong></em></a><em><strong>, and using the code Podcast 20.</strong></em></p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nasm-cpt/message

Integrated Flexibility Continuum
<p>NASM provides an integrated model of flexibility that includes corrective, active, and functional flexibility categories. The specific techniques used within the Integrated Flexibility Continuum are as follows:</p><p><em><strong>Integrated Flexibility Continuum</strong></em></p><p>Corrective Flexibility – designed to increase joint ROM for shortened muscles. It is specifically for the areas of hypomobility.</p><ul> <li>SMR/SMT/Foam Rolling</li> <li>Static Stretching</li></ul><p>Active Flexibility</p><ul> <li>SMR/SMT/Foam Rolling</li> <li>Active Isolated Stretching</li></ul><p>Functional Flexibility</p><ul> <li>SMR/SMT/Foam Rolling</li> <li>Dynamic Flexibility</li></ul><p>This episode talks about just because muscles “feel” tight doesn’t mean that they are in fact tight. Assessments are to be done to identify shortened muscles verses lengthened muscles. In an integrated model the progression from on type of flexibility category to another should be aspired to. As initial limits in ROM begin to increase through corrective strategies, more active techniques can be applied to provide strength to the new found ROM. Just like in the OPT model, once strength gains are made, speed can be applied. In this case, functional flexibility can include dynamic flexibility techniques where momentum and speed are added to the stretch. This integrated flexibility continuum is a brilliant, yet simple model to follow to support our client’s flexibility needs.&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Key Terms:&nbsp;</strong></p><p>Muscle Spindle = “Stretch-O-Meter”</p><p>Golgi Tendon Organ (GTO) – “Tension-O-Meter”&nbsp;</p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nasm-cpt/message

Core Training Overview
<p>NASM CPT Podcast – Core Training Overview</p><p>Even the biggest bodybuilder with the best set of “Abs” may have a weak core as storied in this episode of the NASM CPT Podcast. Rick talks about the biggest person he’s ever met in real life and how his core stabilization system was … less than impressive. There’s also discussion about statistics, research, and the difference between the stabilization between each vertebrae and stabilization between the pelvis and ribcage.&nbsp;</p><p>Several muscles of the core stabilization system are discussed such as the transverse abdominus, diaphragm, multifidus, and more examining what they do and how they function to support the core.&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Maxims to remember:&nbsp;</strong></p><p>- Stabilize the spine before moving it</p><p>- Core is the anchoring point of all functional movement</p><p>- “You can’t have distal mobility without proximal stability”</p><p>Listen to this episode of the NASM CPT podcast for insights about the core and what it’s for and why stabilization of the spine is important.</p><p><br></p><p><em><strong>Get 20% off your order now by calling 800-460-6276 or visiting </strong></em><a href="https://www.nasm.org/?utm_source=general&amp;utm_medium=podcast&amp;utm_campaign=organic&amp;utm_content=core"><em><strong>NASM.org</strong></em></a><em><strong>, and using the code Podcast 20.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nasm-cpt/message

General Adaptation Syndrome and SAID Principles
<p>Your body is apt at dealing with stress and will make adjustments as needed to cope. General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS) allows us to look at the introduction of stress to our system and a spectrum of our body’s ability to deal with it. The levels of the GAS principle are:</p><p><br></p><p>The Alarm Reaction stage</p><ul> <li>What the …!!!</li> <li>Increased soreness</li> <li>Questioning choice of exercises and sometimes exercising in general</li> <li>Decreased performance</li></ul><p>The Resistance stage</p><ul> <li>“Good stress” aka eustress</li> <li>Getting used to the stress</li> <li>Minimized soreness&nbsp;</li> <li>Physiologically fine with practiced exercises</li> <li>Increased performance</li></ul><p>The Exhaustion / Overtraining stage</p><ul> <li>“Over stressed” aka distressed&nbsp;</li> <li>Not enough recovery</li> <li>Irritable&nbsp;</li> <li>Exhausted&nbsp;</li> <li>Decreased performance</li></ul><p>The SAID principle stands for Specific Adaptations to Imposed Demands, which means your body (and mind) will adapt to the specific exercises, stresses, and other demands you impose. As long as you don’t go into the exhaustion phase of the GAS you will continue to build resistance to these stresses and adapt. Work from a place of moderate stress where you can find success and build from there!
