Including functional activities in exercise programs follows a client-centered and goal-driven approach to exercise prescription for older adults.
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance
Although the complexities of a group taper can be daunting, the basic structure of a segment of relative rest
following the regular season followed by a time of serious training culminating in a taper is a reasonable strategy for team coaches to adopt.

Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles
When a fully activated muscle or a fiber is stretched with a moderate speed from one constant length to another, the force recorded on its end exceeds the maximum isometric force at the same muscle length.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles eBook
The �intrasarcomere� mechanisms, such as the actin�myosin interaction, are mentioned only in passing. It is assumed that the readers are familiar with these mechanisms from courses in muscle physiology.
Physical Activity Epidemiology-2nd Edition
The epidemiologic models previously described provide a framework for considering the association among variables in an attempt to determine cause and effect.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
A variety of measurement approaches have been used to examine the anticipatory skill (i.e., advance information usage patterns) of elite and subelite performers involved in �open,� interceptive sport skills.
